The removal of contaminants such as mold, bacteria and dust from the heating and air conditioning system is one element in a plan to improve indoor air quality (IAQ). IAQ can be defined as the nature of air as it affects the health and well being of building occupants. Americans spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors. The amount of time spent indoors is a significant concern, given the fact that studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and others, show indoor pollutant levels may be 10 to 100 times higher than outdoor concentrations.
Air Duct Cleaning Service
Heating and cooling systems inherently collect debris over time, particularly if the filtration is inadequate, and therefore, can serve as a collection and distribution center for various indoor pollutants. The most common contaminant is dust. Dust accumulations can become quite sizable over several years, or even less time when the heating and cooling system’s filtration is inefficient. The presence of excessive dust accumulations can lead to the development of biological contamination. Your system can act as a source of bioaerosols by providing an environment for the growth of fungi and bacteria and then distributing the biologically contaminated air within your home.
In addition to the health benefits, you can save on your energy bills. Research by the EPA has demonstrated that cleaning your heating and air cooling system may allow systems to run more efficiently by removing debris from sensitive mechanical parts. Clean, efficient systems are less likely to break down and will operate more effectively than dirty systems.

The air in your home can be loaded with dust, pollen, spores and other pollutant particles that you cannot see. These particles can be annoying, or harmful, to your family and may cause damage to your heating and air conditioning system. And, standard throwaway or electrostatic filters only trap about 15% of the pollutant particles. The Space-Gard high efficiency air cleaner is 99% efficient on pollen and spores with silent operation and minimal maintenance.

Air conditioning systems can be perfect breeding grounds for allergy producing mold and bacteria. By installing a SteriLight in your air conditioning system, the cooling coil, drain pan and air are surrounded by ultraviolet – of UVC – energy which destroys the mold, bacteria and viruses before they travel throughout your home. UVC light is a known killer of microorganisms used commercially for years by health care facilities, food processing plants, commercial buildings, and the U.S. Armed Forces.
Now available for residential use, UVC energy can:
- Kill mold and bacteria that grow in your A/C system
- Reduce or eliminate allergies as a result of pollutants
- Reduce the risk of circulating cold and flu viruses
- Increase your A/C system's useful life

If you have some rooms that are too cold and others that are too hot, a comfort controlled zoning system can help. Zoning is individualized room temperature control that utilizes multiple thermostats. Zoning can be used in conjunction with your existing heating and cooling system and directs heating or cooling only to the rooms you choose.
The comfort control zoning system is ideal for two-story or ranch style homes, structures that require two or more heating and cooling systems, and can save energy and maintenance costs by operating only when and where it’s needed.
So whether you have a two-story home, unoccupied rooms, or temperature sensitive people, zoning can help. Click here to schedule your free estimate.
