Healthy homes cleaned by Harold!

By | Air Ducts Cleaned From High Performance Heating and Air, Home

Why is duct cleaning so important?

Let’s start from the ground up. Did you know that the outside of your shoes carry an average of 421,000 bacteria? And that’s just your shoes. Scrubbing your floors will help, and so will dusting. But have you stopped to think about where the dust might be coming from? It’s your air ducts! 

Think about it…

Your air ducts are what transfer air between each room of your home. It stands to reason that whatever is settled inside the duct will be blown throughout the home. 

Let’s get serious!

With the flu and other infectious diseases going around, and 421,000 on your shoes every day, wouldn’t it be nice to know that the air in your home is as clean as can be?

How can we clean your air? 

It’s easy, and generally takes 1 day to complete. That means we can have you breathing better in 8 to 9 hours. It all starts with a free estimate appointment that takes about 20 minutes so that our technicians can get a grasp on what improvements you’d like to make to your homes air. Take a look below at a break down of how we can help, and all that we do!=

The break down:

  1. Step one is always a face to face estimate. This appointment provides you with an opportunity to tell us what you want and what your budget is. It also gives our technicians the ability to see first hand what they are working with, experience the air for themselves and build an indoor air quality improvement plan that works best for you. This appointment can be as short or as long as you like. We want to be sure that when we leave all of your questions have been answered and you’re satisfied with the plan you and your technician have come up with. 
  2. Step two is the approval. We don’t pressure you to approve your estimate on the spot, but when you’re ready we’re ready! We’ll set you up with a installation day that works best for you! Tomorrow? Next week? Next month? You’ve got it!
  3. Step three: installation day, the best day yet! Expect our technicians to arrive around 9:00 am to begin working on your duct cleaning. Depending on the level of clean you have selected, we’ll move onto cleaning your furnace and AC unit, then top it all off with the installation of your new humidifier or ionizer if you’ve selected these add ons. 

Add Ons:

Ionizer

What is it? Ionizers are highly efficient stand alone air filters. Rather than using a fan to draw in polluted air to a filter, the ionizer uses electricity to do all the hard work. How? By using high voltage to electrically charge air molecules. Want more info? Check it out here

Ductwork Maintenance

By | Air Ducts Cleaned From High Performance Heating and Air, HVAC

Duct Cleaning

You dust and mop each Saturday, clean the bathrooms each Sunday, change the bed sheets every 5 days, laundry every other day, but when you do clean your air? Though your home may be clean to the touch, the air you’re breathing could be doing you more harm than good. Poor indoor air quality can cause your allergies or asthma to flare up, it can also cause respiratory infections and you cant see it coming.  Lets talk about the effects of poor air quality and how to improve it inside your home.

How bad could it be?

You’re probably thinking there’s no way your homes air can do you any harm, but hear us out. If you suffer from frequent sinus problems, allergy attacks that are “worse at night”, or even asthma flare ups, it could be your ducts! Your HVAC system cycles air throughout your home every time it kicks on.

Sinus Problems

Each time your furnace or AC cycles air, dust and debris is blown into your homes living spaces. That means that each breath you take you’re inhaling particles through your nose. As a direct result, these particles can work their way into your sinuses, causing inflammation and ultimately infection.

Allergies

Did you know that the most common allergens according to Web MD are pollen, dust mites, mold and animal dander? And the most common particles located in your duct work are pollen, dust mites, mold spores and animal dander.  Having these particles floating around your homes air can set off, or lengthen allergy attacks. A key indication that whats in your ducts is a major factor contributing to your allergies would be if your symptoms become worse at home and subside when outside your home.

Asthma

Asthma attacks can be triggered by pollen, pets, mold, respiratory infections and dust mites according to the Mayo Clinic. If you find that your asthma symptoms are worse at home than anywhere else, the status of your air ducts could be to blame.

Respiratory Infections

Along with the pollen and dust mites, your duct work can house viruses, fungi and bacteria. This means that when your HVAC system cycles, it will blow germs through your living space thus causing frequent respiratory infections.

 

Benefits to duct cleaning


Increase your systems efficiency

Cleaning out the debris inside your ducts will ultimately allow for air to flow more freely through your system. The easier it is for air to flow, the less work your furnace or AC has to do. A level two or three duct cleaning from High Performance Heating and Air also offers HVAC system maintenance. With a deal like that, you’re sure to see a reduction in your energy bills!

Fight back against dust!

You could potentially cut down on the dust that plagues your home each week. If there’s less dust in the vents to blow around, it stands to reason that there will be less dust coating your belongings. What will you do with the time you get back from not dusting?

Breathe Easy

With less allergens circulating through your home, you’ll be able to rest easy, and breathe even easier. Plus the added comfort of clean smelling air should be enough to bring you joy all through the season!

Something for everyone!

High Performance Heating and Air offers three levels of protection to best suit your homes needs. All we need is 30 minutes for your free estimate appointment! One of our technicians will review with you exactly what each level has to offer. You’ll then receive a detailed estimate sent right to your email. It really can’t get any easier than that!

Ventilation Fans VS Humidity

By | Air Ducts Cleaned From High Performance Heating and Air, HVAC

Happy Harold’s tip of the week:

Whats the purpose of the ventilation fans in your home?

The primary purpose for having these fans is to remove the moisture from your bathroom or kitchen. Ventilation fans also help to reduce odors in your home. Believe it or not, fans also add to the safety of your home and the residents within! They do this by reducing fumes from cleaning agents that could potentially cause health related issues, all in all improving the air quality inside your home.

What are the benefits of use?

1) Eliminate odors

No matter who you are, there will come a time where your bathroom could use a little extra oomph to get rid of a bad odor. With the help of your exhaust fan, you can draw the odor out in no time at all!

2) Humidity Reduction

Reducing the humidity in your home is vital. Humidity can cause mold to accumulate, these spores can grow rapidly and be quite difficult to get rid of.

3) Reduce airborne contaminants

Bathrooms and kitchens are typically cleaned with aggressive chemicals which can cause a variety of health issues if inhaled. This is a cause for concern among small children, the elderly or those with current lung conditions. Therefore it is vital you run your fans following cleaning.

Lets start Fresh!

Add a duct cleaning onto your spring to-do list to ensure you’re starting your summer off right. High Performance Heating and Cooling offers multiple levels of protection when it comes to cleaning your ducts. Following your cleaning, be sure to utilize your ventilation fans to help maintain the air quality within your home.

Interested in a duct cleaning?

By | Air Ducts Cleaned From High Performance Heating and Air

You’ve seen us advertise it, you may even know someone who has had it done. But do you know why we at High Performance Heating believe every home should have their duct work cleaned and checked? Having your ducts cleaned will not only make your home a cleaner place to live but could also benefit your allergies, and overall health.

Whats in your air?

Its been said that the air inside your home is dirtier than the air outside, can you believe it? The National Human Activity Pattern survey found that most people spend 90% of their time indoors, a statistic that has remained fairly consistent for decades. Meaning, you spend most of your time breathing poor quality air. Your air ducts could contain  as much as 40 lbs of dust, debris and particles! Imagine the size of those dust bunnies. Those dust bunnies contain dust mites, bacteria, pollen, mold and aspergillus.

What are the effects?

You could be suffering from the effects of poor indoor air quality and not realize it. Bad allergies, coughing, sniffles, and headaches can all be a result of poor air quality. Another major problem is that your HVAC system will have to work harder to circulate air through your home, as it navigates though the dust and debris.

What can you do about it?

Call us for a free estimate! Our technicians are happy to come out and take a look at your ducts with you. Following that, they will draft up an accurate estimate that fits your budget and your needs. Then all that is left to do is schedule a date to have them cleaned! You’ll be breathing cleaner air in no time!
