Why Ducts matter.


Why Ducts matter.

Maybe it’s just one room.  Maybe it’s more.  However, if you’re like most people you probably have one or two rooms in your home that are unusually warm no matter how low you set your thermostat.   In more extreme cases, it might even be half of your home.   This is a common symptom among Air Conditioned homes that were not properly sized, insulated, or vented.   In addition the quality of air you breathe within your home can be directly related to the cleanliness of your duct systems.

Many factors contribute to problems like these.  The age of your A/C unit or duct-work can impact how well the air is distributed throughout the home.  The last time the air filter was changed is a factor.   Using high quality filters like a Boair filter is also a factor.  Often the air duct is improperly routed through the home.   Air ducts can become restricted due to cleanable build-up of dust and debris.   If you have two A/C units they could be competing with each other.

An Air Conditioning system that isn’t running at peak performance is more expensive to run.

Luckily, here at Precision Air & Plumbing, we can help make your home a healthier place to live.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests that you have professionals clean your air ducts if:

  • You have rodents, insects, or other pests in your house.
  • The surfaces of your ducts or other parts of your heating and cooling system have a substantial amount of visible mold on them.
  • The ducts contain or are clogged with dust and debris.
  • Dust or debris is being released into your home through your system’s air supply registers.
  • There is a build-up of dust on the surfaces in your home, such as ceiling fans, air vents, or flat surfaces.
  • There are any pets in the home
  • Someone in the home is a smoker, burns incense or candles.
  • Someone in the home has asthma or other respiratory problems.

The cleanliness of your homes air ducts is directly and closely related to your family’s health.   All of the air in your home circulates through your air ducts at least two times per hour.

Preventative Maintenance is far cheaper than waiting until something breaks.  That’s why we change the oil in our cars, and the service manual suggests certain tune-ups.  Because it’s cheaper to stop the problems before they ever happen.  Our Complete AC Tune-Up is the most comprehensive in the valley.  Let one of our professionals come take a look at your system to determine the best ways for us to prevent problems, help you save money, and improve the quality of your air.

      I wanted to make sure my air conditioner was ready for summer. Fernando came out and made sure my unit was tip top. He was friendly, professional and not a sales man. Thanks Fernando!

      Thank you Ray at Precision Air...the compressor on our AC went out last night and the house was HOT. This morning Ray was there to replace the compressor and had us feeling the cool air again in no time. Great customer service...quick response time and friendly from the first call until the repair was completed. Ray even offered to clean the filters! Thank you!!

      Precision Air is a company of integrity. I signed up with them August 1st, 2019 for their AC maintenance plan for 2 years... Someone from their office called me a week ago to set up their yearly maintenance visit. SO GRATEFUL.

      It was time to replace our AC, and so our choice was Precision Air, as we've been with them for over 20 years. Teman & Julian did an excellent job on the installation today, arriving on time.
