Duct Cleaning

Duct cleaning can mean the difference between breathing and sneezing for someone with allergies. But it can also make a difference in quality of life for people without allergies. How, you ask?

We’ve had a wet summer. And a wet winter. Unlike California, WNY has had more water than we need. And our basic biology class in high school taught us that mold thrives in damp, dark places. Like basements after a flood.

If you have a duct system in your house, it’s incredibly important to make sure those ducts aren’t delivering mold-contaminated air into every room of your house. And after a summer as wet as this one, it’s even more important.

Having your ducts inspected and/or cleaned makes sure the air being delivered is clean. Sure, if you’ve got an allergy-sufferer in the house, you know that minimizing dust particles in the air is also important. But some types of mold, when inhaled, mimic allergy symptoms.

Clean ducts offer benefits such as better air quality, more consistent temperature delivery and lower utility bills as a result. If you’ve never had your ducts looked at, now might be the perfect time. If you have any reason to believe there might be mold growing on any part of your heating/cooling system, now is definitely the perfect time. On the same note, if you have any evidence of rats, mice or vermin, you’ll want to make sure they haven’t made a comfy little nest inside your air ducts.

Capital Heat offers duct cleaning services as well as a premium duct-sealing service, Aeroseal, to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of your heating/cooling delivery. Give us a call today, and let us ensure that the air your family breathes is safe and clean.

Life can be uncomfortable. With Capital Heat, your home doesn’t have to be.
