Do You Need Air Duct Sanitizing?
If you have a ducted HVAC system in place, then the answer to this question is a resounding "yes!" There’s a common misconception among homeowners in the West Palm Beach, FL area that the only thing needed to keep their indoor air quality in check is an adequate air filter. But the air filter that comes standard with your HVAC system is there to protect the unit itself, not your indoor air.
Yes, changing the air filter every 1-3 months will help your indoor air quality, marginally. But to truly have an impact, you’ll want to tackle dust, dirt, bacteria, and other debris right at the source—your ductwork. We recommend air duct sanitizing every 1-2 years. Having this service completed by our HVAC technicians will make a huge difference in your air quality and the performance of your air conditioning and heating systems.
Ask Us about UV Light Installation
After your ductwork is cleaned, you want to ensure that it stays that way. While routine duct sanitizing is necessary for dirt, dust, and allergens, you need a little more support when it comes to ridding your ductwork of bacterial growth. Mold and mildew thrive in the dark, damp environment of your air ducts, and this is where UV lights come in.
UV light, or Ultraviolet light, is a naturally occurring wavelength of light produced by the sun. You may be wondering how this is safe, and we want to assure it that it is, in fact, safe in this form. UV lights are installed directly into your ductwork, and instantly kill single cell organisms such as bacteria and viruses. This prevents microbial pathogens from growing in your ducts, protecting the quality of your indoor air.
