Austex is growing thanks to great word of mouth. As a result, we now provide air duct cleaning in Georgetown, Texas. Air ducts and ventilation systems can collect harmful particulates and pollutants.
These include organic and inorganic particles that can be fine enough to be easily airborne or large enough to become trapped in ducts. These factors cause two things: sickness among residents or coworkers and poor distribution of airflow in the duct. These issues accelerate as they get worse until your HVAC system becomes blocked. This is after months of increasing your energy bills and pushing out smaller particulates.
Small particulates are much more harmful to people and pets. This is because they can bypass the body’s natural defenses, including nose hair and mucus. Some have large aspect ratios, meaning they are shaped like a rod that can snag in your lungs, with some causing carcinogenic issues. Other particulates are toxic and produce mutagenic issues that you can pass on to your children and the following generations.
Consider this: You live and work in boxes with no sustained airflow to remove contaminants. Adding more dirt from the window, gaps from poor insulation, and tracking dirt in from the door makes it difficult to remove it at the same pace.
To counter this, use a vacuum cleaner and clean up regularly to remove the number of contaminants in your home. This stops you from getting dirt going into your HVAC systems and clogging ducts.
Now consider the filters your HVAC uses to clean your air. If they are the fiberglass single-use filter, continually replacing these can become costly over time. In addition, these filters are only 7% efficient at collecting contaminants. Instead, try investing in washable electrostatic filters, which are 35% better at holding contaminants.
Suppose you have specific health issues from contaminants, in that case, you may want to also add a UV light with a photocatalytic nanoscale filter. This will break down small contaminants, including pollen and mold spores. In addition, with the diverse temperature and humidity ranges in Texas, you may find this device exceptionally useful for improving your internal environment.
Austex recommends that you also implement professional duct cleaning every 18 to 24 months to remove physical matter with industrial cleaning equipment. Unfortunately, using a standard vacuum cleaner will not cut the power you need to clean ducts properly. Instead, Austex uses a truck-mounted industrial vacuum to conduct this cleaning.
Every 4 to 6 years, you should also get a professional duct cleaning service like Austex to conduct a deep clean. This involves removing physical matter from ducts and cleaning key HVAC components such as motor rotors to help ensure they last longer.
After removing contaminants, ducts are then sprayed with a treatment system that stops biological contaminants and pathogens from gaining a foothold. Austex’s sanitization process is guaranteed for two years; it’s not a temporary biocide or anything that will injure humans or pets.
Other than air duct cleaning service, you can also check out some other services like dryer vent cleaning, attic insulation, chimneys sweeps, HVAC sanitization, and installing UV lights in your HVAC system to get rid of all the contaminants and mold that hinders the quality of air.
Your filters are designed to be easy to access. These are something that, if you prefer, you can clean yourself. There are some instances where health conditions may mean you could ask a friend or us to take care of this for you.
You’ll want to do this every three months for healthy individuals in an environment with a normal level of pollutants. You may need to reduce this period to 2 months if you’re living next to the main road or in a heavily polluted environment.
If you have respiratory issues such as asthma or a chronic respiratory disease, then you may reduce this period to every 20 to 45 days.
To reduce your long-term costs, you could decide to use an electrostatic filter that is washable and performs ~35% more effectively than standard disposable fiberglass filters.
