The summer days are dwindling in the Mohawk Valley region of New York, and that means soon homeowners around the area will be buttoning down for the long, cold winter months to come.
Unfortunately, keeping that cold outside also means they will be keeping any indoor air pollutants cooped up inside with them. And just about everyone has experienced that blast of nasty, dusty air coming through their registers the first time the furnace is turned on in the fall, as the debris trapped in the ducts and accumulating over the summer starts to work loose.
At Fred F. Collis & Sons, we want to make sure your air is as fresh during the winter as it is during the summer, so we recommend a thorough furnace duct cleaning before the cold hits. Think about it — all of the air inside your home is passing through your furnace’s duct system. If you peaked inside those ducts you might not think that’s such a good thing. Unclean ducts can have a buildup of dust, dirt, mold, mites, bugs and bug droppings, rodent remnants, and other nasty stuff that doesn’t set well in the human lungs. And if you think that’s not a problem because you have a furnace filter you’re wrong. That filter only cleans the air going into the furnace. The air coming out is forced through the exit ductwork that is unshielded, delivering those pesky particles right into the rooms of the home and the air you breathe.
Don’t take our word for it. We will actually show you the dirt and debris that we remove from your vent system, and thanks to our remote camera system you’ll also be able to see how clean those ducts are once we’re done.
