Your HVAC system distributes hot or cool air throughout your home via the duct system. That’s why properly maintaining your ducting systems are so important, and regularly scheduling duct cleaning with Air Tech is critical to your HVAC health.
How can you tell if your home needs duct cleaning? The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) recommend that you invest in duct cleaning service when you notice any of the following:
- Allergies Out Of Season
- Visible Dust, Dirt, or Other Contaminants in Ventilation
- Uncomfortable Temperatures Indoors
- Odors While HVAC System is On
- You Suspect There’s Mold/Mildew in Your Ducts
- Possible Vermin Infestation
Your indoor air quality and efficiency can be improved with this simple process.
There are two primary types of indoor air filtration: HEPA filters and air cleaners. A HEPA filter captures airborne particles in a fine mesh material, and as long as you continue to change your HEPA air filter within six to eight months, it will maintain peak performance. An electrostatic air cleaner, rather than use a conventional filter, charges particles so that they stick to the internal, washable panel.
Each has its advantages and disadvantages, and a Central Plumbing, Heating, and Air expert can help you understand them with a consultation today! Stop suffering from poor air quality: call Central Plumbing, Heating, and Air for indoor air quality service today.
