Indoor Air Quality Service
Whether you’re coming home from a long day at the office, or walking into work first thing Monday morning, it’s important that you and those around you have clean, safe air to breathe while you occupy the space. The two main reasons for investing in and maintaining a quality HVAC unit in your residence or at the office are to see to the health and the comfort of everyone who enters the building. Our systems are installed using only the best equipment on the market, and are engineered to continually improve with regular maintenance and upgrade options. But that doesn’t make it infallible or completely resistant to wear and tear that comes from regular use. We highly encourage all of our customers to take advantage of our services, including those periodic house calls to make sure everything is running as it should. Sometimes, though, it’s a good idea to invest in some extra care with additional procedures like air duct cleaning or installing an electronic air cleaner.
When Should I Test My Air Quality?
While there are some obvious indicators that there are substances in the air that are making it unhealthy or even dangerous for you and others – odors, haziness, and even the way the atmosphere registers as you simply breathe in and out – it isn’t always so clear-cut to the untrained individual. That’s where it helps to have professionally trained HVAC technicians like the ones that work for Rich’s Heating and Air Conditioning on your side. With that said, here are some common signs you can look out for:
- Excessive dust
- Uneven temperatures room-to-room
- Musty or stale odors
- Unusual allergy or cold and flu symptoms
- Fatigue or light-headedness not related to sleep
- Excess condensation in the home
- An HVAC machine that is always dirty
Air Quality Services That We Offer
Air Duct Cleaning
Dust alone accounts for a lot of the airborne dirt and debris you and your family and friends breathe in on a regular basis. In fact, did you know that the average home produces roughly 40 pounds of dust in a single year? And it all ends up circulating through the air, and cycling through the system of ducts that moves air into every part of the house. Every so often, it’s a great idea to go ahead and have our professionals address the buildup in your ducts, including the supply and return vents that often go unnoticed.
When our team arrives to clean the air ducts, we do a thorough video inspection before and after the service so you have solid feedback to go on when you assess our work. The Rotobrush system is made so that we’re able to reach even the more difficult areas, and our vacuums are state-of-the-art, designed to extract dirt and dust even from obscure crevices in your air duct network. This prevents it from hiding out in the ducts and getting stirred back into the air circulation later on, which means that you and your family or officemates can breathe easier knowing we’ve removed as much dust as we possibly could.
While air duct cleaning is just one way to minimize the havoc that excess dust and dirt can do to the quality of your home or office’s air, it’s an important part of keeping your HVAC in the clear, too. Whenever our service technicians perform an air duct cleaning, they suggest that the homeowner or employer also go ahead and have them address indoor and outdoor coils on the HVAC unit as well. Doing so saves you the trouble of having to schedule two separate appointments, and it helps us keep an eye out for any potential upgrades you may need in the future to keep your unit running in top shape.
If you’re ready to clear the air and make your spaces healthier environments, contact us and schedule your next service appointment or consultation.
The Rotobrush system allows us to get into those hard-to-reach areas and removes the mold, fungi, bacteria, and dust that are contaminating your air.
Electronic Air Cleaners
Installing an electronic air cleaner in your home’s HVAC system is a great way to capture and destroy dust, pollen, allergens, pet dander, and any other airborne trouble makers. We offer two products that we firmly stand behind.
Setting the standard in air quality, the Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner uses revolutionary technology that supplies your home with a cleaner, healthier environment. Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner removes up to 99.98% of airborne particles – including those as small as .1 micron, making it 8 times more effective than even the best HEPA room filters and up to 100 times more effective than a standard 1-inch filter.
iWave is an air purifying device that installs in any duct air conditioning system. When air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke and odors in the air, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts.
