Clean Air At Last

Just a few months ago one of our customers told us he was feeling very ill and stuffed up every time he spent any more than half an hour in his own home. We went in and cleaned his air ducts and installed a whole-house hepa filtration system. This customer also took our recommendation that he purchase a smaller room-sized portable hepa filter for the master bedroom and now according to this gentleman, everything especially his health has changed for the better. Much better. During subsequent follow-up calls, he stated that he was highly impressed with the duct cleaning we did. The technicians showed him all the dirt that was coming out of the ducts...Read More

Can Mold Grow In A Duct System?

Can mold grow in a duct system, and what problems can it cause? Mold spores require a stable temperature, a food source and moisture to live and reproduce. HVAC systems provide all of these things. Any dust or dirt that passes through your air filter provide a good food source. The furnace or air conditioner is designed to maintain a comfortable temperature, and moisture is available from several of the components in an HVAC system. Ductwork provides humid conditions, the humidifier in the furnace is wet and often holds standing water, and cooling coils are ideal areas for mold growth....Read More

Keep Your HVAC System Germ-Free Easily

Years ago, the HVAC industry addressed a huge problem concerning mold growth that was due to the very common drum-type humidifiers that most people already had installed on their furnaces. With water constantly sitting in the water tray, it provided a very high source of mold growth.The answer brought about the introduction of the flow-through type humidifier, which uses only enough water to humidify your home, and any water not used by the process is drained away. These types of humidifiers are now very common. The replacement of drum-type humidifiers with a flow-through model is crucial to improving indoor air...Read More

Why should air ducts be cleaned?

Studies have shown that indoor air can be from two to five times more polluted than outside air. Most disposable filters remove about 10 percent of these pollutants, allowing 90 percent to enter the air system, and this happens even during the construction of a new home. The pollutants contain dust, pollen, mold spores, animal dander and much more. These materials collect in the furnace, air conditioner and duct surfaces, just as they do visibly on the furniture and floor surfaces. The furniture and floor in your home are cleaned regularly but the duct surfaces are hidden from view and...Read More
