Air Duct Cleaning
No matter where you live, every home is subject to factors that contribute to airborne particles and contaminants.
Over time, these particles build up in your air ducts, causing a reduction in airflow that will cycle these pollutants back into your home. In order to perform at their highest level, air ducts need regular cleaning and maintenance.
Why Choose Air Duct Cleaning?
Air duct cleaning not only benefits your HVAC system but your health as well. Although at the time of installation, your ducts are in great shape, years of use can result in the accumulation of dust and other allergens to build up in the air ducts.
DUCT CLEANING BENEFITS – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Improve Energy Efficiency
Dirt deposits in air ducts cause your heating and air conditioning system to suffer. These particles can accumulate in the internal components of your furnace or fan coil.
Not only do these ducts start to look and smell awful, but they force your HVAC system to work much harder to perform correctly. Thorough cleaning by our air duct cleaning company may result in a decrease in your energy bills.
Avoid Health Dangers
The accumulation of particles, dust, and other allergens can pose a threat to the health of you and your family. Left unchecked, the build-up of fungi, mold, or lint can cause damage to your respiratory system.
When left untreated, these deposits can even act as food for organisms such as dust mites. These microorganisms have also been attributed to aggravating existing illnesses and health conditions.
If you happen to have family members with asthma or allergies, performing regular cleanings will help everyone breathe easier.
Maintain Overall Health of HVAC System
A dirty and neglected heating and ventilation system can result in costly repairs. In order to keep your HVAC system in its prime, cleaning and maintenance should be done regularly.
The Cleaning Process
During our air duct cleaning services, all build-up and contaminants in the air ducts are removed. The goal is to remove every piece of dirt, dust, and mold that has accumulated over time.
First, a duct inspection will be performed to determine the severity of the build-up. We will decide if any special procedures need to be completed and what tools will be needed.
Once the inspection has been completed, the cleaning can begin.
Typically, tools such as vacuums and rotary brushes are used to give your air ducts a thorough cleaning.
During the cleaning, the entire air duct system is placed under negative pressure that stops the spreading of various contaminants. This ensures that the dirt and debris that is removed from your ducts will be contained while preventing it from spreading to other parts of your home.
What are the advantages of equipment with variable speed fans?
Variable speed fans operate on a simple principle: they are able to spin at different speeds depending on the heating and cooling needs of your home. Usually, they operate at lower speeds, delivering a steady, reliable stream of warm or cool air to your home. This helps control humidity levels, utility costs and system noise. When conditions become more extreme, the fan speed increases so that the system can meet increased demand, guaranteeing that on even the hottest days or coldest nights, you’re comfort needs will be met.
My system doesn't work well in a couple of rooms, what should I do?
This can occur for many reasons; uneven solar heat load through windows, an undersized system, improperly balanced or clogged system or a single system serving a two-story home with no zoning control. Each situation is different, usually requiring an onsite analysis with problem specific recommendations. Please call to arrange for us to see your home.
How can I reduce allergens and improve the air quality in my home?
With a high efficiency air cleaner, you can remove up to 99% of the pollen and spores that find their way into the home. There is also a great reduction in household dust, dirt, smoke, and other air pollutants. Your indoor air will become cleaner and fresher while reducing the allergens and dust that circulate throughout the house. With a whole house humidifier, you can relieve the irritating discomfort of dry indoor air. The humidifier reduces itchy skin, scratchy throats, static electricity, and damage to your furnishings and woodwork. Since humid air feels warmer than dry air, you do not have to set the thermostat as high to feel the comfort you want. A lower thermostat setting will reduce the costs of your energy bill.
How often should I change my air filter?
At the risk of telling you something you’re tired of hearing, replace the air filter in your furnace on a regular basis. Dirty air filters reduce the amount of air flowing through a system and make the furnace work harder to maintain the temperature. How often you change the filter depends on the type of filter you use, if you have pets, and the size of your equipment. Please give us a call and we can give you proper guidance.
