Carrier's heating and air conditioning systems are renowned for providing homes and businesses with exceptional indoor comfort and energy efficiency. However, if your ductwork is dirty, leaky, and/or poorly installed, you won't enjoy the full benefits of your Carrier equipment. According to EPA's ENERGY STAR website, the average house loses about 20-30% of its heated or cooled air through holes, leaks, and poorly connected ducts, which in turn results in higher utility bills. Additionally, leaky ducts allow dust, pollen, allergens, mold, bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants to bypass any filtration system you may have installed, compromising the quality of your indoor air.
Zodiac Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. has experienced heating and air conditioning technicians with years of experience. Our HVAC installation and service technicians receive continuous training from Carrier and are all certified by NATE (North American Technician Excellence). Because Zodiac is a qualified Carrier Healthy Air Expert, our technicians also receive specialized training on how to assess indoor air quality problems and determine the best solutions for your needs. With their expertise, you'll improve the quality of the air in your home or business, save money on your energy bills, and enjoy greater indoor comfort.
Unless your air ducts are well maintained and thoroughly sealed, they will eventually attract and trap a wide variety of contaminants throughout the system. These contaminants can include dirt, dust, hair, dust mites, mold, pollen, pet dander, fiberglass insulation, and more. At Zodiac Heating & Air Conditioning, we use the Rotobrush cleaning system to thoroughly clean all types of ductwork. With a Rotobrush machine, which consists of a high-powered vacuum with a rotating brush at its end, we are able to reach all parts of your ductwork, including those parts that are hard to reach or hidden. This machine gently yet effectively loosens and detaches anything that might be inside your ducts. Professional air duct cleaning is recommended about once a year -- depending on how often you use your HVAC system, how leaky your ducts are, and how dusty and windy your area is. For the best results, we recommend performing AeroSeal duct sealing following our air duct cleaning service.
To prevent contaminants from getting into your ductwork and to keep heated or cooled air from leaking out of your ducts into uninhabited spaces, such as your attic, you need to ensure that your air ducts are well sealed. If your ductwork is in good condition (not crushed, broken, or deteriorating), Zodiac can quickly and affordably seal any leaks using the AeroSeal duct sealing method. AeroSeal uses a non-toxic vaporized glue that is pumped throughout your entire ductwork system to seal small holes from the inside out. Using this method, we're also able to seal inaccessible parts of your ductwork, such as those hidden between floors, under floors, and between dropped ceilings and shafts, without having to tear up walls, ceilings, or floors. AeroSeal duct sealing is so effective at improving a home's energy efficiency rating that our clients often qualify for home energy efficiency rebates of up to $700.
