How Clean is the Air in Your Home?

Why Is An HVAC Company Offering Indoor Air Quality Services?

Why wouldn’t we? We are the experts in indoor air comfort, and helping our customers find solutions to keep their indoor environments safe is part of what we do.

The air you inhale in your home is filtered through an HVAC system, which brings in air from the outside. So your HVAC system is bringing outdoor pollutants inside and those unwanted contaminants can stay inside, if your HVAC system isn’t functioning properly or serviced regularly.

Common indoor air pollutants can cause health concerns and even home structural concerns. Common indoor air pollutants include radon, molds, pet dander, pollen, lead dust, and asbestos and are all threats to a person’s health. Poor indoor air quality can cause dry eyes, nasal congestion, headaches, fatigue, and contribute to infections, asthma, and lung cancer.

Aside from health concerns, poor indoor air quality can also result in structural rot in the walls, window condensation, peeling paint, back-drafting appliances, damp floors, musty odors, and mold growth. Controlling the source of pollutants and appropriate ventilation can help indoor air quality.

There are indoor air quality solutions that will prevent untreated outdoor air from invading your indoor space and protect you and your family. Read below to learn more about possible solutions, or call an indoor air quality expert today for a free indoor air quality assessment.


Dirty ducts are nothing to sneeze at in your Raleigh, Durham home. Not only can clogged ducts compromise your home’s air quality, but they can also result in high utility costs. Learn how cleaning your home’s ducts can help you save money by improving indoor air quality and increasing your HVAC system’s efficiency.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Even if you’re diligent about replacing your home’s air filter every one to three months, and you keep common pollutants outside where they belong, your home can still develop poor indoor air quality. Ducts often develop cracks and leaks over time, inviting dust, dirt, and other allergens into the system.

Instead of spending big on an air purifier or another whole-home HVAC part, head off the problem and have your home’s ducts cleaned. One of our knowledgeable HVAC technicians can also help you correct any large leaks or holes in the ductwork.

Increase HVAC System Efficiency

Whether your home’s ducts accumulate so much dirt and debris that they become clogged or they cause your HVAC system to continually recirculate contaminated air, dirty ducts can lower your HVAC system’s efficiency.

Professional duct cleaning can help your home’s HVAC system run at optimal performance and peak efficiency again. Since efficient systems use less energy than overworked HVAC systems, you’ll notice the savings with lower utility bills.

Extend HVAC System Lifespan

Most HVAC components last for several years. Neither your air conditioner nor your heat pump will last as long as it’s designed to if the units must constantly work around dirty ducts. When you have your ducts cleaned when necessary and schedule preventive maintenance twice a year, you’ll save on expensive repairs and spare yourself the cost of an early HVAC system replacement.
