Inspection of your fire and smoke dampers is a mandatory part of facility safety. Hospitals, nursing homes and other facilities frequently rely on ACIA to provide NFPA-90A fire/smoke damper inspections. Fire and smoke dampers should be inspected every four-six years as required by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Our trained technicians thoroughly test your system and investigate any issues that may arise. Insure your facility is in compliance with the latest safety standards to avoid costly fines. Our trained technicians give each damper a designated number, record them on provided drawings, note the condition, and photograph each one. Any failed dampers may be repaired or replaced. Our team can also install access doors if necessary. After the inspection is complete, a detailed report is created from the data found so you’ll know exactly where you stand.
We insure that:
- Moving parts are lubricated as necessary
- All dampers are operating and have the ability to close all the way
- The latch (if applicable) is checked
- The fusible link (if painted or damaged) is replaced with a fusible link that is the same size, temperature, and load rating
- The fire/smoke damper area is not being obstructed
- The fire/smoke damper operation is not being inhibited by rust, bent tracks, damaged parts or hinges, misaligned blades or frames, screws, or defective parts
- The inspection is documented with the damper identification number, location of the damper, date of inspection, the cleanliness of the damper, photo of the damper, and any issues that were detected
- The inspection documentation is available for review by the proper authorities

ACIA is proud to offer duct-cleaning services to manufacturing facilities, food processing plants, schools, hospitals and nursing homes. We are proud members of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association and have been a certified member since 2005. At ACIA we ONLY handle commercial and industrial jobs, so rest assured that we have the proper equipment to do the job right.The NADCA ACR 2013 standard calls for cleaning of the following:
There are many ways to clean duct which is why we have most every tool available for any situation we encounter. We use traditional drill mounted whips, compressed air systems, and even a robotic cleaning system. ACIA now offers robotic duct cleaning with the MicroInspector® from Lloyd's Systems. We call our robot ISAAC; which stands for Inspection Sealing and Advanced Cleaning. ISAAC combines advanced agitation and airless sprayer attachments with illuminated video feedback to allow simultaneous system performance and work documentation. By using ISAAC, we are able to clean more of your duct work from less locations. This means less access holes to cut and a more efficient job. We are the only company in the Mid-Atlantic region to offer robotic cleaning services that provide video feedback to ensure your ducts have been properly cleaned.
- Supply duct
- Return Duct
- Supply diffusers and return grills
- AHU fan section and coils
Since every facility is different, pricing will vary by the job. If you have an interest in having systems cleaned in your facility, please don't hesitate to contact us for a quote. Kyle Leaman
ACIA offers duct sealing for all types of duct work including fiberglass duct board, sheet metal, and internally insulated sheet metal duct with Carlisle RE-500 and RS-100. Traditionally we were only able to seal very large duct through a manual spraying process. The ISAAC HVAC Robotic System is our answer to cleaning and sealing small and inaccessible duct work with ease. Sealing your ducts with ISAAC can help improve indoor air quality and decrease heating and cooling costs without significant interruption to building occupants.The ISAAC HVAC Robotic System is capable of hard-to-reach remediation that would otherwise result in much more costly renovations. It is a robotic vehicle integrated with a digital video recorder that is specifically designed to clean, coat, and seal duct work of all types. The remotely operated vehicle is equipped with an airless spray attachment that allows the duct work to be sealed or fiberglass insulation to be encapsulated. Once deployed, the ISAAC HVAC Robotic System is controlled remotely and progress is monitored on the LCD display using the live video feed. Upon reaching an area in need of remediation, ISAAC gets to work sealing leaks or coating damaged insulation with its airless sprayer. The attachments are capable of 360-degree rotation, ensuring that every inch of duct work that requires attention is treated properly.Why use the ISAAC system? ISAAC offers three benefits to commercial buildings: improved air quality, greater energy efficiency, and easier, less costly full system inspection. The energy efficiency of an HVAC system is contingent upon it remaining free of leaks and debris. According to the Department of Energy, the typical duct system loses 25 to 40 percent of its energy output due to improper sealing. The ISAAC HVAC Robotic System helps to mitigate energy loss by fully cleaning and properly sealing your duct work, resulting in increased airflow and reduced operational costs. It can also dramatically improve your building’s indoor air quality, purging your system of long-unnoticed particulate. Moreover, the sealants and encapsulants developed by Carlisle HVAC products are anti-microbial, meaning they do not provide a food source for bacteria.ACIA is a Carlisle Authorized Applicator for both RE-500 and RS-100. We have multiple factory trained applicators on staff who know who to get the job done properly. We can tackle any job big or small with the ability to seal ducts as low as 4" in height up to 40" x 40" in just one pass. Feel free to contact us to learn how much energy you can save by having your duct work sealed with Carlisle HVAC products. Kyle Leaman
Why inspect your ductwork?
Ducts are rarely inspected inch-by-inch making it possible for breaches in the system to exist. Such breaches may include poor or non-existent sealing, improperly installed turning vanes, or full duct separation resulting in compromised airflow. The ISAAC HVAC Robotic System also makes it possible to inspect for debris that has built up on the coils in VAV boxes. Any of these issues will result in an inefficient HVAC system creating unnecessary additional monthly operational costs. The only way to ensure that these problems do not affect your ductwork is to visually inspect them and repair all potential issues.What’s in your ductwork?
A number of things inside your ductwork may affect the indoor air quality of your facility. Poor air quality may result in health problems for those who use the facility. The breakdown of fiberglass insulation that is not properly encapsulated results in fiber buildup inside of ductwork. Mold and bacteria can feed on particulate matter that accumulates in corners and on fire and smoke dampers. Dirt and debris will continue to accumulate if the optimal airflow through ductwork is not achieved. Kyle Leaman
