Sanitizers are anti-microbial products applied to the interior surface of the air ducts, designed to control microbial contamination. Before any sanitizers are used, we make sure that the system has been thoroughly cleaned and turn on the blower during sanitizing. It is critical that any anti-microbial treatment used in your system be registered for the intended use in HVAC systems.
This varies depending on the volume of the home and the layout of the ductwork. An average size home can take between 3 and 4 hours.
Typically every 3 to 4 years, however, it depends on the individual circumstances. Some of them are as under.
YES, Professionally cleaned and sanitized ductwork can reduce mold, fungi, pollen, bacteria, and dust particles. These contaminants are known to trigger allergies, asthma and other health problems. By reducing the contaminants in the ductwork, you are allowing the air that circulates through out your home to be cleaner, and therefore, healthier too.
YES, The companies that charge a nominal fee – e.g., “$110 whole house special” – often send one man to do 6 or 8 jobs a day, which does not allow enough time to do a job professionally. Most of these companies do not use latest and powerful equipment as it costs a lot than conventional one. They may also persuade the consumer into unneeded services.
Well, Having the air ducts cleaned can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your home or office.
Once the ducts are clean of debris, you should notice:
Matching components help a system achieve maximum design efficiency. We follow the standard requirements and recommendations when installing your outside condensing unit for an air conditioner and the evaporator coil inside with your furnace or air handler. In a central split system like this, the outside and inside must be matched. If you update one and not the other, you lose efficiency. Similarly; standard calculations must be done with best engineering practice to match your furnace capacity to your central air conditioner in order to get the optimum efficiency.
Cooling efficiency is measured in SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), while AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency and applies to heating products. Ratings works like gas mileage of your car. The higher the SEER or AFUE number, the higher the efficiency. Advanced technology and quality components for high value. * 12 SEER efficiency increases energy savings over older, less efficient units. * 10 SEER means you save energy compared to older, less efficient units. * 10 year limited warranty*
Carbon Mono Oxide is called the Great imitator and the most harmful product of incomplete combustion. Carbon Mono Oxide in sufficient quantity can cause severe injury and /or death. It absorbs into the body through the lungs and combines with hemoglobin in the blood, displacing oxygen. It is colourless, testless, odourless, combustible, toxic and highly explosive (limits of flammability is 12% to 74%).
Symptoms of Carbon Mono Oxide poisoning:
This is how it can be harmful and it can be disaster if any malfunctioning caused in furnace /boiler due to incomplete combustion. So get your Furnace/boiler cleaned and tune-up professionally once a year to avoid the presence of Carbon Mono Oxide in your home.
This is a real factor to understand. In Ontario, a person must be certified by Technical Standards and Safety Authority (T.S.S.A). The furnaces and the boilers are the sources to generate heat for our homes. These equipment are not similar to our other residential equipment. Normally natural gas/oil is used to generate heat. The indoor air or water passes through the heat exchanger (inside the furnace/boiler) where the natural gas or oil is burnt in terms of fire with the calibration of several sensitive components. Though these equipment are controlled by safety components but they can be failed and malfunctioning can be occurred that can be caused to produce Carbon Mono Oxide which is highly explosive and toxic gas. Typically, a Professional cleaning and safety check should be performed at least once a year to avoid any hazardous situation. So it’s not a simple cleaning but requires several steps to be cross checked and a professional tune-up to provide an optimum level of performance of your equipment.
