Dryer vent cleaning is an important part of maintaining proper ventilation. By having a professional clean your dryer vents, you can reduce humidity and dust in the air. Dust and lint build-up can be a fire hazard, but clean vents can prevent a dangerous fire. They can also increase efficiency, so the dryer uses less energy, potentially saving on utility bills.
Kitchen exhaust systems help restaurants and commercial kitchens maintain and adhere to strict cleaning standards. Following the proper cleaning procedures reduces the risk of fire and allows smoke and odors to ventilate. It can improve efficiency as well, resulting in energy savings. Exhaust cleaning professionals can also ensure you’re compliant with local/national fire and health codes.

Replacing air ducts might sound easy, but it’s an incredibly complex process. In a typical central air system, the air ducts connect across a large system. They bring air in and out of all the rooms of your home. To replace those ducts, a technician needs to go through and make sure every one of those ducts is changed out with new ones.
One of the most difficult parts of the process is making sure that there are no leaks. One of the ways you could be wasting energy is by having leaky ducts. While an experienced technician will make sure your new ducts have no leaks, an inexperienced one may not do the same. As a result, you could end up wasting hundreds of dollars on heating and cooling each year. This is why you should never attempt to change out your ducts alone. Call an expert and have the job done quickly and efficiently.
Just as your HVAC units won’t last forever, your air ducts won’t be eternal. In fact, they may not last as long as your heating and cooling system. In most homes, the ducts need to be replaced once every ten to 15 years. If you fail to replace your ducts in a timely manner, you could experience several issues. First, you might have high energy bills. Old ducts tend to leak, and this makes it difficult for your HVAC system to function. It may work much harder than necessary.
If you wait too long to change out your ducts, you face another issue. You could have pests in your home or be in danger of a duct collapsing. To prevent any of these situations from happening, you should work with an experienced HVAC technician. They can examine your ducts and determine whether or not you should replace them. Call us for help.
One of the most obvious signs of bad ductwork is a strange noise coming from your ducts or vents. As soon as you notice a change in your system’s sound, consult with a professional. You could have leaks or holes within your ducts. Unless you act quickly, you could have serious problems. High energy bills, frequent repairs, and other complications often occur when there are duct leaks.
You also may know that you have bad ductwork if you have an old HVAC system. How old is your ductwork? If it’s close to 15 years old, you should consider replacing your ducts. Doing so comes at a high cost, but it could save you money on future repairs. You should be proactive and be on the lookout for several signs of bad ducts. When in doubt, schedule a duct inspection and let our team help you answer your questions.
