AC Heating and Air Conditioning According to the USEPA, The levels of some hazardous pollutants in indoor air have been found to be up to 70 times greater than in outdoor air. One major source of indoor air pollution is dirty air ducts. Each time the furnace or air conditioner is in operation, dust, dirt particles, debris, pollen, pet dander and other pollutants are drawn into the duct system. Over time, the particles accumulate in the ducts. The duct system eventually becomes the perfect environment for the proliferation of mold, bacteria, and other organisms.The air is pumped through the system and dispersed throughout the home where family members and pets become sick. People with respiratory conditions such as asthma or people who are prone to allergies are at a greater risk of getting sick. Children and the elderly are also at a high risk of getting sick from poor indoor air. Fortunately, people now have the ability to have their ducts cleaned in order to improve the quality of their indoor air. People who live in condominiums have the same indoor air contaminants as homeowners and they should also have their ducts cleaned. By having in-suite exhausts, heating/cooling systems, and clothing dryer units cleaned, Condo managers are providing residents with a healthy breathing environment. Dryers produce very large amounts of lint. There is a fair amount of lint that escapes the lint trap and gets into the vent system. Over time the accumulation of dryer lint can create a risk of a fire. Because lint is a highly flammable material, many insurance companies and fire departments require dryer vents to be inspected and cleaned regularly. Blocked airways and heat can cause lint to catch fire.  Also, dryers that do not vent correctly are less efficient and therefore are more expensive to operate. Cleaning laundry vents and exhaust systems are essential to reducing the risk of a fire and improving energy efficiency.When there is improper air ventilation, the indoor air becomes contaminated with air pollutants. The decrease in air ventilation results in Condo residents breathing bad air. The air duct cleaning method used by many cleaning companies consists of a portable power vacuum and an air compressor. This type of unit, or a similar designed unit, allows technicians to reach and thoroughly clean a Condo's entire duct system. The cleaning units are quiet so residents will not be disrupted.  Most companies use the most current duct cleaning equipment technology available. For example, robotic duct cleaning equipment is fast becoming a popular choice for many companies. Many building are now becoming afflicted with a condition called 'Sick Building Syndrome,' including Condos. This term means that a building or home has contaminants in it that are making the occupants sick. Some main causes of Sick Building Syndrome include: toxins in such items as upholstery, carpets, treated wood products, cleaning products, as well as pesticides and certain types of plastic material that can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air, including formaldehyde. Biological contaminants can include pollen, bacteria, viruses, and molds.Dirty or moist air ducts provide the perfect home for the accumulation of debris, dust mites, and organisms. This can result in 'sick building syndrome.' Because Condos can have an extensive duct system, it is essential to have the systems cleaned regularly in order to maintain healthy indoor air for the condo residents.

Choosing an Air Conditioning Repair Contractor

AC Air Conditioning Repair Air conditioners regulate the temperature indoors during hot days, keep out pollutants and contaminants, and maintain comfortable humidity levels in the home. Despite the amount of use AC units get, many homeowners wait until small issues become large problems to schedule an air conditioning repair service. Here are a few common reasons for repair calls.Lack of MaintenanceWhen it comes to keeping an HVAC unit in good working condition, regular maintenance is key. A routine tune-up can help keep units working all summer long. When homeowners neglect regular maintenance, small issues can become costly headaches. Remember, technicians can spot damage before it causes a major issue.Moisture Inside the System Air conditioning units are designed to reduce the risk of moisture building up in the system. A central drain line funnels excess moisture outside, where it can do no damage to the home. However, if the drain line gets clogged, water can pool inside the system, leading to corrosion, mold, and even electrical issues. Furthermore, the moisture build-up can attract pests that can damage other parts of the home. These repairs require an experienced professional and should not be handled by the homeowner.Overused and Overworked AC UnitsDuring the hottest days of the summer, many homeowners run their systems continuously. While this does keep homes cooler, it can also damage the air conditioning unit. The constant use places a lot of strain on the system and can cause severe damage when the unit is not properly maintained. An overused unit may even stop working, resulting in an expensive air conditioning repair that could likely have been avoided with a routine maintenance appointment.Improperly Sized AC UnitsWhen a technician installs a unit, they always look at the size of the home to determine which unit will work best. If a unit is too small to cool a home properly, the air conditioner may break, forcing the homeowner to call an air conditioning repair technician to assess the problem. It's important to note that unless the unit is upgraded or supported by additional units, an undersized AC will likely break again after repairs. Faulty WiringWhen an unlicensed contractor or handyman installs an AC unit, they may not be familiar with the proper safety protocols for installation and could wire the unit incorrectly. If this is the case, the air conditioner won't work as efficiently and may even be a fire hazard. Homeowners who notice that their unit runs without cooling the room or constantly trips the circuit breaker should schedule a consultation immediately.Avoid these common repair problems by scheduling routine maintenance each year. Call a local AC repair expert to be prepared for summer before it arrives. Air Cond Services
