Duct Cleaning and The Most Often Asked Questions

Cash for Caulkers – Leaky Air Duct Work

By admin on July 26th, 2010

TCash for Caulkershe Home Star Energy Retrofit Act of 2010 – also known as “Cash for Caulkers” – is nearly here. The bill passed earlier this summer in the House of Representatives and is now awaiting final approval by the Senate. This is great news for homeowners and contractors. Arguably, the greatest barrier to widespread adoption of energy efficient or “green” construction is the cost. Cash for caulkers will hopefully be the impetus for change. This program lends itself nicely to the HVAC (heating ventilation and air conditioning) industry since older heating systems are notorious for air leaks. Sealing leaky duct work often times will have a profound impact on a homeowner’s energy bill.

Benefits Of Duct Cleaning

By admin on July 12th, 2010

Extracting dust from the air duct work, by means of duct cleaning, is very beneficial to the air quality in one’s home. There is more dust inside than outside, and this type of dust is the ideal environment for mites and bacteria to develop, which are dangerous for health specifically if there are little children playing in various places in the house.

Our home’s HVAC (Air Conditioning and Heat Ventilation) systems are most prone to dust accumulation since these seasonal machines are not operated most of the time during the year. Additionally, because air conditioners ventilate, dust becomes trapped in them and this causes various allergic reactions. For this reason, many companies offer duct cleaning services for HVAC systems like heaters, air conditioners and dehumidifiers. The air channels of these machines can be properly cleaned with specialized brushes and blowers.Furnace Duct Cleaning
