DuctMasters installs our own DuctMasters Ultraviolet Light Systems in new or recently cleaned air-conditioning systems. Our UV Light Systems minimize the chance of microbial growth and increase the system’s energy efficiency.

Ultraviolet Light System for Indoor Air Quality ImprovementHow does the DuctMasters UV Light System improve indoor air quality?

The use of Ultraviolet Light Systems to reduce microorganisms on the surfaces and airborne particles in the airstreams of air-conditioning systems actually dates back to the early 1900s.1

There are three types of UV light: A, B, and C, each representing a different section of the UV light spectrum. Type C, known as UVC, is the form used for germicidal activity. When UVC light is used for germicidal purposes, it is referred to as UVGI or ultraviolet germicidal irradiation. UVGI “deactivates” or kills microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, molds, and other fungi by disrupting their DNA. “Deactivated” means the organism is not necessarily killed but can no longer reproduce.

One study of office systems reports a 25-30% reduction in airborne bacteria when UVGI was used on HVAC drip pans and cooling coils.2

DuctMasters UV Light Systems include a Lifetime Limited Warranty on the ballast and a two-year warranty on the Ultraviolet bulb with every installation.

Will a DuctMasters UV Light System minimize odors?

Yes, it can. When odor elimination is a desire, we install a Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) Grid along with our UV Light System. PCO works at the molecular level to break up common indoor odors as well as other organics including airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens.3 PCO purifiers are able to remove air contamination far smaller than can be filtered, so they are perfect to round out a complete indoor air quality system.

Is a UV Light System a substitute for air duct cleaning?

No, source removal of contaminants remains the single best method for cleaning and decontaminating air-conditioning systems including the air ducts.

Should I install a UV Light System myself?

It’s not recommended. The application of UVGI in air-conditioning systems can be an effective means to reduce airborne pathogens but only if lamps are properly and strategically installed and are properly maintained.

The biggest reason to have DuctMasters install our UVGI system is the Lifetime Limited Warranty on the ballast and two-year warranty on the bulb that comes with every install. Other companies typically offer only up to 1 year on the ballast and 1 year on the bulb.

Additionally, if installed in air-conditioning systems without proper training, UVC lamps can be largely ineffective and can create hazards or material decomposition that negatively impact the functioning of the system and put occupants and installers at risk.

Adrian, David and their crews were very professional and did a sterling job. We just bought a condo and had to resolve mold issue in our ducting. DuctMasters to the rescue! I strongly recommend this company. My duct work is now clean, coated with their special sealer and it was money well spent.

My A/C and air ducts were full of mold and I had no idea until they came out and did the evaluation. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They installed a brand new system and cleaned the air ducts and now my home smells great and is free from mold. So glad I trusted DuctMasters with this project.

We have been using Ductmasters since 2011, when it replaced our a/c system. The technicians did a great job, cleaned up afterwards. This year, we have experienced some problems - again. We called Ductmasters to has come out several times, to diagnose and fix the problem. After Hurricane Irma and subsequent power outages, the compressor fried. Ductmasters replaced the compressor, and helped us with paperwork to file a claim with FPL. Subsequent to this replacement, we continued to have problems, and the technician diagnosed a bad thermostat (probably fried as well during the outages). Ductmasters replaced the thermostat, flushed the system, and tested the parts.
We can rely upon Ductmasters, Adrian, Eddy, and Roger, for professional service, timely repairs, and great work. They explain everything, advise of future service necessary for our system to work in peak condition, and promptly respond to problems.
We strongly recommend Ductmasters as a quality, responsive, ethical company.

I am very satisfied with the work that was done with the installation of my new air conditioning system by DuctMasters.  They responded very quickly whenever I had a question or concern with my new system.

They promptly sent out a service technician when needed.

I have recommended DuctMasters to my girlfriend when she had an air conditioning problem.

I hired another person to some duct work on a house. We failed 4 inspections. Enough was Enough. I then called Ductmasters for a quote. Eddy met me at the home and worked out a proposal. Eddy and his team completed the task in a timely and efficient manner.We called for the inspection and passed! The city inspector was so impressed with the work he wouldn’t stop raving. I’m very happy with the work Eddy and his team did. You now have a life long customer. Thanks again Eddy!

I called DuctMasters on Tuesday with an emergency request. I was getting a new AC in the morning and needed the ducts cleaned same day. They sent someone out within an hour. They did a great job! My vents look and smell brand new. They kept my home clean and cleaned up after themselves.  There was a small disagreement with the charges and they fixed it right away. My new AC is up and running and thanks to DuctMasters the air is flowing through clean vents!  They came highly recommended by my AC company, weathermakers.

Very happy with my newly installed AC, which has some great features I never even knew about. Duke was especially helpful and informative, taking the time to explain each aspect of the system. He did a great install and thoroughly cleaned up afterwards. A+!

Ductmasters repaired & sanitized our ducts after a rodent got into the attic & did some shredding. The damage was extensive but I really think the system is working at peak again.
The work was done amazingly fast & at a fair price. Happy to recommend their crew without reservation...Thank you.

Duct work shot in condo I bought.  Called DuctMasters and Ryan came an evaluated took pictures and gave me sound advice.  I chose the best option and Adrian and his crew showed up on time as scheduled to do the total replacement of the ducts and all related parts.  He took after pictures and I was very impressed.  They were very professional and cleaned up after caused no disruption in the condo building.
I would highly recommend this company.  You may find someone who says they can do it cheaper, but you get what you pay for.  I happen to be a retired refrigeration engineer and have experience in all aspects of HVAC.  There was no pitch for BS which I would have known immediately and not hired them for the job.

Adrian and his five man crew did a great job in cleaning and coating our AC ducts. I was impressed that the crew removed the two large air handling units and washed them down then reinstalling them and sealing them in thoroughly. They very efficiently finished the entire job avoiding to have to return another day. We feel relieved that our AC ducting system is now clean of any mold or mildew and will stay that way for years.

We are glad to have contracted DuctMasters to do our regular annual maintenance on our AC system to include regular replacement of air filters every 3 months.

Adrian took many pictures of the cleaned and sealed ducts which we would also like to have copies of. Also send us the Mastercard charge receipt for the balance of the bill for the work completed yesterday (19 Dec 2018).

Please let the crew that worked on our AC system know that we appreciate their very professional effort and to thank them for us.

Finally a great company to contract with. Ductmasters is probably more expensive than others, but you get what you pay for.
Great service. On time as scheduled. Cleaned all my ducts and inside air conditioner. David Gonzalez and Mayra were so nice and worked very hard. Very courteous and polite. It was a very big job. Everything looks perfect. They totally cleaned everything and even vacuumed my whole apartment. If I could give 10 stars I would. Thank you for everything. I absolutely recommend the company.
