Most people have spring cleaning rituals. Cleaning carpets, turning the mattresses, airing out upholstery… seasonal cleaning of your home AC system should be on the list as well. Cool Quest recommends as part of your spring cleaning is to have us come out to make sure that your air conditioner, vents and ducts are in top condition.
Look at your vents. Is there a build-up of dust or dirt there? When you turn on your AC system, do you smell burnt, dusty or moldy scent? Do you noticing that the volume of air coming out is less than you are used to? These are all signs of dirty or even clogged AC vents and ducts.
Dust and mold that builds up inside your home’s air conditioning ducts can be harmful to your family’s health. In Florida, we are particularly prone to a toxic form of black mold; these spores are a great cause of respiratory problems. If these contaminants escape into the air, they can contribute to indoor pollution. People with asthma or allergies, the young, the elderly, and people with bad immune systems are particularly vulnerable to health problems caused by poor indoor air quality. By getting your ducts cleaned, you can reduce your risk from these indoor allergens and irritants.
After cleaning, to prevent bacteria and mold build-up in the future, consider adding UV filters to your air duct system. UV filters use light to kill organisms before they can enter the air in your rooms. We have a number available that can fit any air conditioning system.
Cleaning is not the only regular maintenance your AC system needs. In addition to making sure that your system is clean, we recommend making sure that it is in optimum working order. Call us today for your 20 point AC tune up.
