Duct cleaning

Why should I have my ducts cleaned?

Over time, a natural collection of dirt, pollens, allergens, dust mites, and skin cells will form on the lining of the HVAC duct system. This will reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system and cause irritating smells and allergies in your home. A proper duct cleaning, using a high velocity HEPA filtered suction system along with a variable speed brushing system is the only way to rid your HVAC duct system of allergens, dirt and other contaminants.

Indoor Air Quality

Why is my indoor air quality so important?

The EPA estimates that indoor air quality can be as high as 10 times to 100 times more polluted then the outside air. The air in your home is stale and only gets freshened when someone opens a door or window. Whole house air cleaners, air purifiers, air sanitizers, and humidifiers attached to your HVAC duct system will greatly improve your indoor air quality and reduce you symptoms of allergies and bronchial problems.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Why is my dryer running longer?

If you have had your dryer for some time and you are experiencing longer drying times, it could be that your dryer vent needs to be cleaned. Cleaning your dryer vent will reduce the amount of time needed to dry your clothes. A dryer vent cleaning will also reduce your electric or gas consumption as well as reduce the chance of a fire taking place in your dryer vent.

Thermostats

Is it a good idea to upgrade my mercury thermostat to a digital programmable thermostat?

Yes, it is a good idea. By replacing the mercury thermostat and recycling it, you do the environment a good deed. You also help out the environment by installing the digital programmable thermostat because this has the ability to set back temperatures in your home while you are gone throughout the day. This reduces your energy consumption which lowers emissions thereby helping the environment.
