Indoor Air Quality can have a major impact on the health of you and your family. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indoor air can be 3 to 5 times more contaminated than outdoor air. Many people confuse the symptoms of indoor air contamination with other illnesses. These symptoms are headache, fatigue, irritated eyes, runny nose, sore throat and skin irritation. Common culprits of contamination are mold, dust, pet dander, pollen, bacteria and mildew that can accumulate in your ducts and circulate through our home. Changing your filter is important, however, filters are not 100% effective at purifying your home's air. Getting your ducts cleaned regularly removes build up of these pollutants that sneak past the filter and not only benefit the health of your family, but also the efficiency of your HVAC system. Build up in your ducts can cause your system to have to work harder to heat and cool your home by restricting air flow. The harder your system has to work, the more energy it uses which can cause your utility bill to increase and shorten the life of your HVAC system.
Air Duct Sanitizing/Fogging Treatment
We use EnviroCon, which is a bacteriostat, fungistat and deodorizer. EnviroCon is a sanitizing solution that is highly effective in bacteria and odor control for all building systems, indoor pollution control and environmental maintenance, contains no perfumes or masking agents and destroys odors associated with bacteria, mold, smoke and animals.
UV-Aire uses the energy from a specially designed, high-intensity UV-C lamp to reduce microorganisms in the entire home as they cycle through the HVAC system. Mounted inside the duct work by our technicians, the UV-Aire sterilizes and kills most contaminants as they pass the lamp.
The process requires very little maintenance and costs just pennies a day to operate. The UV-Aire is one of the best health and comfort investments a homeowner can make.
Dryer Vent Cleaning and Repair
According to the U.S. Fire Administration 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported a year and occur more frequently in the fall and winter months. These fires are caused by failing to clean lint filters after every use and to have your dryer vent cleaned professionally every year. Lint buildup decreases air flow, which can shorten the life of your dryer, extend the drying times or your clothes, and increase he risk of home clothes dryer fire.
Bird Nest Removal
Bird nests in vents are more harmful than most homeowners are aware of. Nests in your dryer vent cause your dryer to be less efficient by blocking the vent and trapping moisture in the dryer which increases the energy needed to dry your clothes. Nests can also be responsible for spreading illness throughout your home because they are breeding sites for fungi, parasites and bacteria. The number one risk of nests in our dryer vent are dryer fires. Our technicians will carefully and thoroughly remove and dispose of the bird nest and sanitize the dryer vent.
