Improves Air Quality
An efficient system not only cuts costs, but it can give you peace of mind that your ducts are running properly and filtering out any debris, providing clean air to your home.

Routine maintenance is recommended to ensure that ducts and filters are clear of any debris that may be harmful to your home and family.

Reduces Risk of Mould Growth
Having your ducts cleaned, especially in the summer, is important to eliminate any mold that may be growing. If your HVAC system is not in use during the winter months, or has been sitting unused for a while, mould could be growing and could be spreading within the system. If you run your system like this, the mould can block air flow and circulate poor air throughout your home, putting you and your family at risk. Be sure to have your system inspected for any mould before you start running it this summer.
