In fact, sealing and insulating your ducts can improve the efficiency of your HVAC system by up to 20 percent.
Air Duct Cleaning
Did you know that dryers are involved in one out of every 22 home structure fires? In 2010 alone, NFPA reported that almost 17,000 dryer-related fires were reported, resulting in 51 deaths and almost 400 injuries. The damage related to these fires alone was more than $230 million dollars. The number one cause of home clothes dryer fires is a failure to clean the dryer vent.
This is a completely avoidable cause. When you call the team at RDTTS Appliance Repair, our technicians can ensure the dryer vent is clean and perform routine maintenance to ensure a dryer vent-related fire never occurs in your home.
Duct Sealing and Replacment
There is a general rule of thumb related to air ducts: if they look dirty, they probably are. That dirty HVAC system needs to be inspected by a reputable professional to restore indoor air quality and help you and your family breathe easily once again.
In a typical home, quite a few contaminants and air pollutants are circulated through the air, including chemicals, dust, and dander. In fact, these pollutants are circulated up to seven times a day, on average. As time passes, the continual recirculation of contaminants causes build-up in the ducts. Each time your air ducts are cleaned, five to 15 pounds of debris and dirt are going to be removed.
According to the EPA, the average adult inhales as much as two tablespoons of household dust every single day. This alone is enough to encourage most home and business owners to invest in regular duct cleaning services. Our team of professional technicians understands how to clean ducts, seal holes, and install equipment to help ensure better indoor air quality.
