The Power of AC Duct Cleaning for Indoor Air and AC Performance

Monday, August 5th, 2019

duct-being-cleanedIf you’re anything like the average homeowner, you probably don’t think about your ductwork very often, unless you have a major problem with it—like it has a huge hole that’s allowing cooled air to escape into your attic rather than making it into your living space.
