Old ducts could be the source behind many of your home problems. Old ducts typically suffer from disconnected joints, fallen sections and insulation, and more, allowing energy to escape your duct system and contaminants to enter. Old ducts can run up your energy bills and contribute to the poor indoor air quality that’s negatively affecting your family.
Air duct replacement can solve your old duct issues. By replacing aging ducts within your home, we can create a more efficient, air-tight system that will serve your family better. When performing air duct replacement, we are able to fix design flaws from the old system that had been hindering performance and compromising indoor comfort. Air duct replacement will help you keep your heating and cooling energy in your living spaces, offering the comfort you desire.
Air cleaners work with your heating and cooling systems or by themselves to remove harmful contaminants from your indoor spaces. Air cleaners can be installed in your duct system for use throughout the entire home, and portable air cleaners are available for use directly in certain rooms. The type of air cleaner you need will depend on the contaminants present within your home.
Not all filters are created with equal filtration powers. There are many different filter options for use with your heating and cooling systems, although higher efficiency filters do a better job of trapping contaminants than low-quality disposable filters. Filters with higher MERV ratings and HEPA filters are useful tools for removing more of the harmful contaminants that wreak havoc inside your home.

Your home’s duct work hosts the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth — it’s dark and moist. Mold growing within your duct system is easily overlooked and could be growing unnoticed for some time. Ultraviolet lights are a smart tool for controlling this growth in these hard-to-access areas; these lights can kill off any existing growth and prevent regrowth within your duct system.
Ultraviolet lights are installed within the duct system, independent of your HVAC equipment in their own self-contained unit, and use a small amount of energy to produce lasting effects. Using ultraviolet lights can drastically improve your indoor air quality by eliminating these contaminants which can be very harmful to your family’s health such as:
You’ve probably noticed that some areas of your home are hard to control temperature-wise. The problem arises from your home’s heating and cooling systems — alone, these systems don’t allow you to adjust temperatures for these areas independent of the rest of the home.
The EPA recommends that indoor humidity levels should remain between 30 and 50 percent. These humidity levels are not always possible to achieve naturally, especially when outdoor humidity levels are high. Using dehumidifiers, you can remove the excess moisture from inside your home to maintain balanced levels of humidity. Maintaining balanced humidity protects your home and its contents from moisture damage, as well as controls indoor conditions to prevent mold and mildew growth.
There are a few different types of dehumidifiers available for home use:
Our air quality specialists are available to evaluate the needs of your home and help you choose a dehumidifier which is appropriate for use in your home.
