Indoor Air Quality
The air we breathe in our homes and offices can put us at risk for health problems. Some pollutants can be chemicals, gases, and living organisms like mold and pests. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that interferes with the delivery of oxygen throughout the body. Installing a carbon monoxide alarm is recommended for all homes with natural gas or propane appliances including your heating and cooling systems.
Ventilation is an important part of improving your indoor air quality. Bathroom, kitchen, and attic exhaust fans and running your heating and cooling equipment in vent mode can help remove pollutants from the air. Also changing your air filters regularly helps clean out the trapped dust, allergens and pet dander that circulates through the air in your ducting and home. We offer products and services to help improve the air quality in your home.
Air Duct Cleaning
The Puget Sound is a wet and beautiful place teeming with pollen, mildew and mold. Many people and businesses sometimes forget that they should have their air ducts cleaned. A variety of bacteria accumulates in your air duct system such as dust, dust mites, pet dander, mold, asbestos, e-coli, Salmonella, MRSA, and several other pollutants. Breathing these harmful bacteria can cause and aggravate allergies and even worse, cause major respiratory problems and illnesses especially in children. Removing debris and cobwebs eases airflow and increases the efficiency of your HVAC system, in extreme cases as much as 40%. This helps your system not work as hard and makes your home more efficient.
The cleaning process should be done by a professional using specialized equipment designed exclusively for air duct cleaning. Morehart Heating and Air not only cleans the ducts, we also sanitize with E.P.A. approved products. This kills bacteria, virus, mold spores, fungus, and dust mites. Air duct cleaning also saves the homeowner or business owner money by improved efficiency of your cooling and heating systems. After cleaning, a high efficiency* electrostatic filter will collect up to 95% of the airborne contaminants before they can enter your air handling system. A residential air duct cleaning job takes just a few hours and it’s very affordable.
