Arizona DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals Owner Stresses Importance of Indoor Air Quality When Spring Cleaning Glendale, AZ  February 26, 2009  - The long winter months with closed up homes and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems working over-time can result in an optimal breeding ground for contaminants in the Arizona area.  Come spring, many homeowners are eager to throw open the windows, scrub the floors and breathe fresh air, but what many fail to realize is that their indoor air may be preventing optimal cleanliness.  In fact, indoor air quality is ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Vince Divarco, owner of the local DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals, advises residents of Arizona that spring is an excellent time to improve their indoor air quality. 

According to Divarco, the following are steps that can be taken to improve indoor air quality during spring cleaning:

1.  Change the air filter.  According to American Lung Association maintenance is key when it comes to air filters, though many homeowners disregard the importance of this type of maintenance.  Divarco strongly recommends strictly adhering to the manufacturer's guidelines regarding the frequency of changing or cleaning the air filter. If you can't remember the last time the filter was changed...then it's time to replace it.

2.  Have your entire HVAC system inspected and, if necessary, cleaned.  Multiple components of your HVAC system, including the ductwork, can trap contaminants and contribute to poor indoor air quality if not kept in proper working order.  According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), if there is visible dust, dirt or debris within the ductwork, your HVAC system likely needs to be cleaned.

3.  Hire a professional.   Not all duct cleaning companies can or should be trusted.  An HVAC system cleaning that is not done correctly can actually make a home's indoor air quality worse.  DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals, unlike many competitors, are licensed in Arizona to clean residential and commercial air duct systems, guarantees its work and adheres strictly to NADCA's rigid service standards. 

"There's no better time than spring to have your HVAC system inspected and cleaned," said Divarco.  "Clean indoor air provides for a cleaner home, and goes hand-in-hand with the spring cleaning initiatives that families already take annually."

Hi Vince,  Question for you...  when you are cleaning ducts in a home, are you able to determine where there may be leaks?  Or does that have to be done by an AC person?

I am sorry I missed your question - I have been out of commission since May due to knee surgery and not focused as much on my blogs.  We CAN determine where most leaks are but there is some very specialized equipment (like infrared cameras and pressure sensors) that companies who do this work ona regular basis use.  I have a partner that is certified by APS to do this sort of work - I believe that there was a rebate for this at one time as well.  If you are looking to get this done on behalf of one of your clients let me know and I will put you in touch with my HVAC Inspection partner.
