Tucson Indoor Air Quality Tips

The condition of ductwork in Tucson homes can have a major effect on your heating and air conditioning system in addition to the actual air quality of your home. This is especially true if you have people living in the home that suffer form chronic allergies and pollutants such as pollen, dust, pet dander and hair. In fact, poorly maintained ducts can actually make these things worse for allergy sufferers.

Irritants get trapped in your ducting and build up over time that can just circulate higher concentrations throughout the entire home. We recommend frequent inspections because every home needs regular ductwork maintenance – there is no method of keeping them clean indefinitely.

If you have not had your air conditioning ductwork, give Cool Breeze Comfort Solutions a call today and we will take a professional look at the system in your home. We can make recommendations and find out what works best for your individual situation.

In addition to just making your Tucson more comfortable, cleaning your ducts can also improve the efficiency of your air conditioning system because it ensures proper air flow. A professional duct cleaning is a comprehensive approach to the whole home with the intent of cleaning every square inch of the ducting within your system and then treating it afterward to improve longevity. We can also look for damaged ductwork, which can lead to a loss of airflow as well.

Tucson air conditioning, air quality and clean duct management are some of our specialties! And remember, the best thing you can do on an ongoing basis as a home owner is replace your filters often! If you are concerned about the quality of any of these areas in your home, give us a call right away and we can schedule an appointment today!

Ductless Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps

If you are adding on to your home or are looking for a lower cost option to replacing a swamp cooling unit with a central air conditioning system, then a ductless air conditioning and heat pump unit might be the right fit for you.

Ductless air conditioning and heat pump units have become incredibly energy efficient.  These systems offer flexibility as well since you are not tying them into an existing ducting system.  They can be placed nearly anywhere and are very easy to install.  Ductless air conditioning and heat pump units are also extremely quiet; unlike some units seen in hotels, the systems we install and maintain are whisper quiet as well as energy efficient.

Ductless systems have a lot of benefits that make them a good choice of supplemental air conditioning and heating.  As most units are equipped with a heat coil, it makes it possible to warm a space on chilly mornings or evenings without needing to use the main heating system.  This could be a great savings in seasons that have temperature extremes in the late evenings and early mornings in homes with large heating systems.

Some very strong advantages to ductless units are:

  • The actual loss of the duct.  Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic or on top of a roof.
  • They are lower cost than central air conditioning units
  • Easier to install
  • Units take up less space than traditional room units

Cool Breeze Comfort Solutions specializes in energy efficient ductless systems in the spaces that make a lot of sense.  We use premium name brands such as Hitachi that are guaranteed and warranted.  These units have a world wide reputation of efficiency and reliability.  Contact Cool Breeze Comfort Solutions today at 520-495-2227 and let us give you a free quote and work with you to create the perfect heating and cooling solution.  We service the Greater Tucson area and the surrounding communities.
