Air Duct Cleaning

The air in your home may be 70% more polluted than outside air. That can be dangerous to the health of you and your family. The source of much of that pollution comes from inside your heating and air conditioning ductwork, which are lined with deposits that include bacteria, fungi, dust, pet hair, pet dander, and other contaminants. Molds, too, accumulate in damp ducts. All of these contaminants continually circulate in your home whenever your furnace or air conditioner is running. The result may be allergies or asthma, resulting in runny noses, eye irritation, and a general run-down feeling. Stale odors, too, come from dirty air ducts.

Benefits of Attic Insulation :

Though you may not go up in your attic a lot (it’s probably cluttered with old holiday decorations, clothes you don’t need and other miscellaneous things), it’s important to insulate it. In fact, failing to ensure you have the right amount of insulation in your attic can hinder your energy efficiency attempts.

Insulating (or re-insulating) your attic can help:
•Lower energy bills
•Make your home a more comfortable space
•Create a uniform temperature throughout your house
•Reduce outside noises
•Create a healthier environment inside your home

Dryer vent cleaning

Dryer vent cleaning

Did you know that cleaning the lint filter on your clothes dryer does not prevent lint build up in the dryer vent? It’s true. Almost half of the lint produced in clothes drying escapes past the filter and gets trapped in the exhaust vent pipe. If the vent is clogged, your dryer can’t do its job properly, and your clothes don’t dry as quickly as they should. This can double your energy costs for the dryer or even more.

If the vent becomes extremely clogged, it can even become a fire hazard. If hot air cannot escape to the outside, the dryer will become excessively hot. A fire can result. It is estimated that clothes dryers cause up to 15,000 house fires a year. Your dryer vent hose and pipe should be cleaned annually to maintain efficiency and prevent fire risks.

It takes more than one cycle to dry a load.
Your clothes are too hot to touch after drying.
The lint screen doesn’t capture any lint.
Your dryer shuts itself off unexpectedly.
