At a time when people are spending around 90 percent of their time indoors, making sure that your home is free of air pollutants is critical to your family’s well-being. Today’s better-insulated homes mean that less energy and money are required to operate HVAC systems but can also mean that pollutants are trapped inside. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside American homes is typically many times more polluted than the air outside. In an effort to address this growing national health concern, Gentry Heating established a sister company, Ecoducts Environmental Air Quality, to meet our valued customers’ air quality needs.

A Full-Service Air Quality Contractor

Ecoducts is committed to promoting wellness by making your home a healthier environment. Because indoor air pollutants come from a wide array of sources, our healthy air solutions include a broad range of services and products designed to address and resolve each household’s specific air quality challenges. Our air quality testing services measure the level of air pollution in your home and alert you to potential problems. From high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration systems to carbon monoxide detectors, our mission is to provide solutions that ensure the air that you and your family breathe is safe and clean.

High-Quality Ductwork Cleaning Services

Your forced-air heating and cooling systems work by delivering air through a network of air ducts. As the air is blown into your home’s living spaces, stale air is pulled into ductwork and returned to the equipment to be conditioned. Over time, dust and debris accumulate in the ducts. When humidity levels in your home rise, ducts can become a breeding ground for allergens like dust mites, mold and mildew.

Our Ecoducts specialists use the roto-brush system to sweep clean your home’s ductwork. Connected to high-power vacuum equipment, the system’s rotating brush cleans your ducts quickly without disrupting your home. The roto-brush system works on all types of ducts, including flexible ductwork. Duct cleaning not only clears ductwork of air pollutants but can improve the performance and energy efficiency of your heating and cooling systems as well.

The EPA lists indoor air pollution as the nation’s fifth-largest environmental threat. You can reduce the health risks associated with air pollutants with cost-effective services like regularly scheduled tune-ups for your heating and cooling systems. Our preventative maintenance programs include ductwork inspections to ensure that pollutants aren’t circulating through your home. Gentry Heating is proud to be a leading provider of healthy air services for Asheville, NC and the surrounding communities. Our goal is to make your home a safe, comfortable and healthy environment in which to live. Please give us a call for additional information.
