Your indoor air quality can be worse than the air outdoors. You may be aware that pollutants are affecting your and your family's health, but you may not know where to start to make improvements.

Any improvement to your indoor air quality can help alleviate symptoms and help you and your family breathe easier. We have many solutions that can help: air purifiers, UV lights, upgraded 4” filters and furnace and duct cleaning can all drastically improve the quality of your indoor air.
Your furnace draws in air from the interior of your home through the air intake, heats it and forces it back into your home through your ducts. This continual cycling of air through your home can leave dirt, dust, pollen and bacteria inside your duct work or air supply to your furnace. If moisture is involved, this can create optimal conditions for mold growth and the spores would be distributed throughout your home. With a thorough cleaning by home heating contractors, you can significantly reduce the amount of dust and allergens in the air of your home.
Our professional home heating contractors are highly skilled and trained in all aspects of home heating. When they perform air duct cleaning, they will do a thorough job and make sure all of the components of your heating system are properly cleaned, not just the obvious areas. They also check for installation or maintenance issues which may require attention to ensure proper air flow, such as air leaks in your duct work or insufficient air from the cold air return. When the air flow throughout your home is optimal, your furnace runs more efficiently and will last longer.
Proper furnace maintenance including frequent air filter changes and duct cleaning can significantly improve your indoor air quality.
