Air Duct Cleaning
Contaminants tend to build up in air ducts, since they are often not cleaned by homeowners. When you turn on a forced air system, all of those built–up contaminants are circulated throughout the house. Breathing in a high dose of contaminants like that makes it far more likely for you to get sick. We offer duct cleaning services to help protect against those effects.
Air Filtration Systems
Air filters are tightly woven fiber meshes, which are often installed in your home’s ducts. As air flows through the filter, any contaminants that it carries will become snared in the fiber. Air filters are the most popular method for cleansing the air of contaminants. We install and service a wide range of air filtration systems.
Air purifiers use a great many different methods to remove contaminants from the air. Ionization purifiers, for example, use clouds of charged particles to attract airborne contaminants. UV germicidal lights, on the other hand, use ultraviolet light to kill germs and mold spores that might infect you. Which air purifier you choose should depend on the recommendation of your indoor air quality professional.
Duct Repair and Replacement
Ducts have limited lifespans, just like anything else. Various parts of the ductwork can fail over many years of use, and if you’re not careful you may even have part of the ductwork collapse. If your ducts are in need of repair or replacement, we can help. We’ll make sure that your ducts are in the best possible shape for years to come.
Leaks can develop in your ducts at any time, whether during installation or through years of normal use. Though individual duct leaks tend to be small, they can add up quickly. The US Department of Energy has found that the average forced air system loses as much as 30% of its total output to duct leaks. Be sure to get your ducts sealed at least once a year, in order to protect them.
Before you can have your ducts repaired or sealed, you’re going to need to have your ducts tested. Duct testing allows your HVAC technician to pinpoint any leaks or other gaps in your ducts, so that they can be repaired or sealed. If you haven’t had your ducts looked at in a while, it’s a good idea to schedule duct testing before anything else.
Low humidity opens you up to disease by causing your skin to crack, as well as the mucous membranes in your nose. These are the first lines of defense your body has against disease, which makes it more likely for you to get sick. If your air is chronically dry, you should consider installing a humidifier in your home.
Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators
One of the major issues with climate control is that fresh air is cut off during winter and summer. This is because people seal off their homes by closing windows and doors, which causes the air inside to grow stale. Heat and energy recovery ventilators solve this by running outside air through a heat exchanger, which allows fresh air to come into the home without compromising climate control. Call Comfy Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. for more information.

We could not be happier with the workmanship or integrity of this company. We had a mini split system installed and are extremely pleased with the outcome.
