Maintain Clean Air Ducts

We always hear about instances where people feel so much better after we’ve had a chance to clean their air ducts so we thought it was a topic worth letting people read about. Air duct cleaning can be a very inexpensive way to maintain a superior quality of comfort in your home today. We recommend cleaning on an annual basis or every other year at worst. Additionally, clogged air ways can force your system to work harder than it has to, which will increase your energy bills for seemingly no reason at all.

Duct cleaning is really all about the internal air quality of your home. We stress this heavily because of how ducts are just a vehicle for all the collected irritants within the entire home and then they are dispersed into every room. Pollutants, air from your kitchen, carpets, pets, bathrooms and allergians all converge into your air conditioning system and then are pushed back out the ducting system.

Our comprehensive process includes:

  • Remove All Dust
  • Completely clean the interior of your ducts
  • Major vents are vacuumed
  • Utilize special industrial strength machines designed for duct cleaning
  • Check for excess debris
  • Mold build up inspection
  • Hypoallergenic treatments are available

During the duct cleaning process, Cool Breeze Air Solutions also takes special care to protect the interior of your home from damage using covering for furniture and flooring. We use specially designed tools that are utilized to clean fiberglass duct boards and a thorough inspection is performed to ensure there are no asbestos containing materials in the duct system that may need removal or special treatment.

Don’t forget also to make sure you replace your filters frequently! This is an extremely low cost and easy way to maintain a higher level of comfort in your home.

If you live in the Tucson, AZ area and your ducts are getting clogged, emitting strange particles or your energy bills are climbing for no reason, contact Cool Breeze today for an inspection and duct cleaning cost estimate!

Key Components for Annual Maintenance of Your HVAC System: A Guide From Casa Adobe

Annual HVAC service checkups are an important component of your Casa Adobe home’s ongoing operation. Without these checkups, your HVAC system may not run properly. While there are some tasks you can perform yourself, most of the vital maintenance tasks need to be performed by a professional annually.

As you look for a contractor to perform your annual maintenance, make sure you find someone who will perform each of the most important tasks listed below for your system each year:

  • Electrical Connections – These should be tightened, tested and replaced as necessary.
  • Thermostat – A professional thermostat calibration ensures the system runs at the right temperature throughout the summer.
  • Control Panel – The control panel is checked for error codes and recalibrated to ensure it continues running as intended for another year.
  • Blower Parts – The fan and motor are checked and serviced as needed. Replacement parts are installed.
  • Condenser Coils and Evaporator – Both are cleaned and checked for signs of wear. Any bent coils are repaired.
  • Exchanger and Combustion Components – If you have a packaged system, these are checked for the entire system.
  • Refrigerant Check – If you have a refrigerant filled air conditioning system, it will be checked to ensure levels are high enough for another summer.
  • Air Filters – While you can do this yourself each month, a professional will check permanent and replaceable filters for wear and tear.
  • Moving Parts – All moving parts are inspected, oiled, and checked for damage. If a part needs replacement it is done now to avoid future problems.

Good annual maintenance is necessary to keep your system running smoothly year round. While there are plenty of cleaning tasks you can perform each month, the most important tasks are those performed by your contractor.
