Is the Condition of Your Ductwork Hurting Your Household?

ductwork-condition-hurting-householdOne of the biggest threats to the indoor air quality in your Wellington, FL home is leaky, damaged, or dirty ductwork. Not only can leaky ductwork reduce your comfort in your home as conditioned air escapes into unoccupied spaces, but pollutants can also make their way in and throughout your entire living space. And if your ductwork is dirty? You can suffer ill effects plus your HVAC efficiency will be decreased.

Two Vital Services

There are two services that our team provides that can greatly benefit your HVAC system as well as the health of you and your family. One is professional duct cleaning, and the other is duct sealing. Investing in these services will help your HVAC systems work more effectively and improve the quality of your indoor air.

Why Duct Cleaning?

It’s natural for your system to collect dirt and dust throughout the year, particularly considering just how much we use our air conditioners around here. However, if left to build-up, too thick of a layer of debris can create problems.

Your ductwork isn’t exactly easy to access, either. Our trained technicians are highly skilled at dealing with these systems, and have the specialized tools needed to thoroughly clean your ducts. Doing so increase your energy efficiency, for one. In fact, the EPA estimates that removing even just 4/10 of an inch of dust from your ductwork can reduce your monthly energy usage up to 20% since there will no longer be too much air restriction.

What does this mean for you and your household? Well first off, you’ll experience lower energy bills. But the greater advantage of this service is that you’ll receive better indoor air quality and a significant reduction of allergens. This is great news for anyone who suffers even mildly from allergies or asthma.

Is Duct Sealing Really Worth It?

Let’s say that you’ve had your ducts cleaned, but you suspect—or you were informed by your HVAC professionals—that your ductwork has small tears or breaches throughout. You may be tempted to run out and buy some duct tape to repair it yourself. We get it—you want to save money.

But, unfortunately, duct tape is not appropriately named and will not get the job done right—if anything it will provide a very temporary solution to a bigger problem. Leaky ductwork can render your HVAC system inefficient, and can allow contaminants such as dirt, dust, pollen, and pollution into your home.

Our team has the appropriate training and the right tools, including professional grade mastic, to perform your duct sealing services successfully. This is the service to consider if you’re looking for a way to make your household healthier and more comfortable.

Now is the Time

Although it pretty much stays warm year-round here in Florida, the beginning of spring is one of the best times to schedule this service. Right now you may be able to take a break from using your AC long enough to have your ducts cared for—whereas in the middle of a hot summer day the last thing you’re going to want to do is shut it down!

When you’re looking for an HVAC company in south Florida that is a licensed duct cleaner, you’ve come to the right place! Contact Envirotech Air Quality Services for comprehensive duct cleaning or duct sealing services today.
