WHY YOU SHOULD GET YOUR DUCTS CLEANED
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), as much as 40 pounds of dust is created annually in an average six-room home. Dust, dander, and other air pollutants are pulled into the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system and circulated through air ducts.
THREE SIGNS THAT YOU SHOULD CLEAN YOUR AIR DUCTS
While there is no evidence that duct cleaning will prevent health problems, there are certain conditions in which duct cleaning is recommended.
- There is visible mold growth inside your ducts or on other parts of your heating and cooling equipment.
- Ducts are infested with rodents or insects.
- Ductwork system is clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or you see particles being released into the air from your supply vents.
PROFESSIONAL DUCT SEALING
In addition to keeping your duct system clean, it is also important to make sure that your air ducts are properly sealed. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, duct sealing can prevent pollutants like dust, fumes from household chemicals, and insulation particles, from entering your ducts and circulating through the air in your home.
Leaky ducts can reduce the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20 percent. Air duct sealing can help increase the energy efficiency of your system and lower your energy costs. We may also recommend insulating your ducts as an additional way to improve comfort and HVAC system efficiency.
Ductless Cleaning Services
We create a refreshingly cool home without any major renovation. A state-of-the-art ductless mini split system works very much like central air conditioning, but requires nothing more than an outside wall. And when the professionals from Island Heating and Air installation, your project is completed quickly, neatly, and accurately. Through top-of-the-line products and meticulous workmanship, we ensure the highest rewards for your investment.
Ductless mini splits rely on two main components. An outdoor compressor/condenser unit and an indoor air handling unit are connected by a conduit that houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain. The tubing, located behind the indoor unit, exits the home through a small, three-inch hole, which is sealed to prevent drafts and moisture. Ductless systems use inverter technology, allowing the system to continually adapt to conditions within the home. Very rarely is a system required to operate at 100% capacity. By adjusting speeds, the unit functions at peak efficiency, saving money on energy bills.
