Discover What’s Lurking In Your Ducts This Winter

air-ducts-in-an-hvac-systemIf you are like many Lake Worth residents, you may have started off your end-of-year festivities by attending the 2016 holiday tree lighting ceremony at the Cultural Plaza last Friday. Preparing for the holidays, however, is not just about attending community events–although we definitely support that! Holiday preparations also should include ensuring that your home is safe and healthy, both for you and your family as well as any guests you may be receiving this season.

Part of this is making sure your HVAC system is in good shape. Other parts of the country may be seeing chilly weather, but as we are well aware, it can be as warm as 90 degrees come New Year’s Eve. Be sure to schedule an air conditioning maintenance appointment if you haven’t had one completed in the last year (or last 6 months, if you’re using a heat pump). In addition, you’ll want to check that you’re well equipped with the right indoor air quality products and services.

Professional Duct Cleaning

Cleaning the air ducts within a home may seem trivial—perhaps even unnecessary. But we assure you this is not the case. While this is not a service you must have done as often as HVAC maintenance, it is one that requires your attention and diligence. When completed every 2-3 years, our professional duct cleaning services in Lake Worth, FL will help give you a great performance from your HVAC system, and improve your indoor air quality.

If you truly want to be able to rely on your ductwork to spread warmth and comfort throughout your home, then you need to be aware of what could be lurking in the ducts, and eliminate the health risk they can present. Pollutants such as mold and mildew could be growing—particularly if you haven’t yet invested in UV germicidal lights. Other bacteria may be hiding in the dark and damp corners of your ducts too, and these pollutants and bacteria can easily make you and your family ill should they infiltrate your home.

Does Your HVAC System Benefit?

According to organizations such as the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, yes, professional duct cleaning certainly does help your HVAC system. Pollutants that are hiding in your ducts can easily be pulled into your central air conditioner or furnace, clogging up the air filter and collecting on the various components that the filters are meant to protect. As a result, the operation of your system is obstructed.

However, our professionals can come in with specialized tools such as agitators, brushes, and vacuums specifically designed for duct cleaning, in order to thoroughly freshen up your air ducts without introducing harmful particles into your living space. If you’ve never arranged for this type of service before—and ductwork is certainly not something homeowners give a lot of thought to—then now is the time to do so. We’re happy to discuss these services more so you have a full understanding of how duct cleaning benefits your health and your home.

Our organization is one of the very few HVAC companies located in south Florida which employs licensed mold assessors, mold remediators, and duct cleaners. If you’re in need of professionalism and a job done right, simply contact Envirotech Air Quality Services today.
