Spring is almost here and for many, that means the start of spring cleaning in Columbus NC. An important thing you should be including in your spring routine is service for your home’s heating and cooling system. Before the warmer weather arrives and you start using your air conditioning, do not forget about your ductwork, HVAC filter and condensate line.

Why Pay Attention to Ductwork?

You may not realize it, but your duct system is very essential to the efficient operation of your heating and cooling system. If it is in poor condition or full of accumulated dust and other particles that are pulled in through your returns you are wasting your energy dollars. It can also be hazardous to your family’s health and well-being.

To improve the performance of your duct system and provide a healthier indoor air quality for your family, we recommend our air duct cleaning and sealing services. If your ducts have gaps or holes, duct sealing will prevent air from seeping out. This makes your heating and cooling system more efficient, as more of the cooler air produced will reach your vents. You save money on your cooling bills because your system does not need to work as hard.

We offer air duct cleaning with our ROTO BRUSH system and sanitizing to remove accumulated contaminants that can aggravate allergies or cause your family to become ill. Some of the contaminants that may accumulate in your ducts over time are:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Pet hair and dander

Unless removed, these contaminants will continue to circulate through your home. Additionally, the accumulation of this matter will reduce the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. This is another way homeowners waste energy dollars and is why you should consider having your ductwork cleaned by our professional service technicians.

Have Preventive Maintenance before Startup

Most homeowners know to change their HVAC filter monthly, but there are some maintenance steps that need to performed by a professional. Scheduling a preventive maintenance service during the spring will ensure that your air conditioning system is ready for the hot months ahead.

Our service technicians will perform an overall inspection and cleaning of your system including its condensate line to make sure it is not clogged with mold or other debris.
