duct-cleaningWe know it is almost summertime but some of us are still going through the process of spring cleaning.

Monday, May 25th, 2020

insulation-in-attic-loftWhen the temperature gets to be unbearable most of us are going to be holed up at home trying to stay comfortable and dry. As long as your air conditioner is working well, your home should be able to provide a comfortable environment during those swelteringly hot days, right? Not necessarily.

Dcut Sealing | Miami | Air On DemandImagine what would happen if you could see molecular particles. You would probably be a lot more disturbed when you realized just how dusty or dirty your home’s air quality was.

With all that said, take a moment to think about what you might see if you did have the ability to visualize those little airborne particulates. Would you see a lot of dust? What about animal fur or pollen? Even worse, imagine being able to see bacteria or viruses. We know it isn’t a pretty picture but with the help of an indoor air quality system, that picture can improve quite a bit.

Fur In Your Vents? Time For a Duct Cleaning!

Monday, November 11th, 2019

dog-lying-floorDogs, cats, rabbit, birds, the list goes on. So many of us have furry critters that we consider a part of the family. We love to pet them, cuddle with them, and we brush or bathe them when it is needed (if they let us that is.)

But even those of us that groom our pets everyday are going to run into stray fluffballs. It is unavoidable and that is what our air filters are for! These handy parts of our home comfort systems work hard to filter out as much fur dust and other debris as possible out of the air we breathe.

Monday, February 4th, 2019

dirty-ductWhen it comes to your ducted HVAC system—such as those used by central air conditioners, furnaces, or heat pumps—we often like to inform our readers about keeping them maintained.
