Alternate ways of keeping the air in your home clean

Having clean air in your home is essential to the health of you and your family. There are many things you can do throughout the year to ensure the air you breathe inside your house is safe and clean.

A few simple things to do around the house to enhance your air quality:

  • Keep windows open on days and nights when the weather is nice.
  • Use exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathrooms.
  • Limit outside dirt and dust by using doormats and not wearing shoes in the house.
  • Dust and clean regularly, being sure to always dust all ceiling fan blades, as they tend to accumulate dirt quickly. When cleaning, try to use household products that are effective, yet not toxic.
  • Vacuum on a regular basis, but be sure to invest in a vacuum that uses a HEPA filter that does not kick up dust and dirt while in use.
  • Invest in an air cleaner.

Other ways to enhance the air you breathe in your home:

  • Have your heating and cooling system cleaned and inspected
    regularly by a professional. If you live in Atlanta or surrounding
    areas, Estes Heating and Air Conditioning can help you enhance air
    quality. We can pinpoint where changes can be made in your heating and
    air conditioning system, including air conditioner repair or air
    conditioner replacement.
  • Consider upgrading to a high-efficiency media filter or an
    electronic air filter instead of a fiberglass one. Media filters are
    more efficient and don’t have to be replaced as often. We can change
    out the filters, in addition to performing a routine cleaning and
    inspection.
  • Address any plumbing issues to avoid mold growth. We can also
    help you with any of your plumbing needs, including fixing leaks that
    may cause mold growth.

As you can see, there are many things you can do to make the air you breathe cleaner. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment for any services you may need to improve the air quality in your home

Aeroseal-Duct Sealing

 

This video gives you an overview of a new way to fix air duct leaks. It discusses the effects of air leaks on the home, like poor air quality and higher heating and air conditioning bills. It points out that the conditioned air lost through leaks averages around 20-40% for an average household. The video then goes into detail about the Aeroseal system that will fix air leaks, and in turn will save money and improve comfort and air quality. The Aeroseal system uses computer analysis to run several tests, including a room air flow test and a combustion safety test, to determine if your duct system needs repairs. The video concludes with the positive results you get from fixing your air leaks.

The importance of maintaining your heating and air conditioning systems

To avoid costly repairs of major problems in the future, it is necessary to maintain your heating and air conditioning system. Some maintenance may require a technician’s services, while others you can do on your own. Maintaining your HVAC system can ensure you’ll never get caught in the Atlanta heat in July without air conditioning. Whether you need help with maintenance, air conditioner repair, or air conditioner replacement, Estes Heating and Air Conditioning can provide you with professional, reliable service for your residential or commercial HVAC needs.

Here is a list of maintenance tasks to be performed by your technician

  • Clean the blower housing and blower wheel
  • Clean the evaporator and condenser coils
  •  Look over the fan, belts, and bearings
  •  Examine the area around the air intake, making sure it is free of mold
  •  Fix any air leaks
  •  Clean air ducts
  •  Clean dampers

Have all of the heating and air conditioning units inspected by a professional and have any necessary adjustments made every year before the hottest months when the equipment will be used the most.

You can take preventative measures on your own as well, including checking on the condition of your air filters on a monthly basis, and cleaning or changing the filters as necessary. If you aren’t sure of how to do this, one of our service technicians at Estes Heating and Air Conditioning can show you when he or she comes by to perform other maintenance procedures.

Protect your heating and air conditioning system before it’s too late by performing routine maintenance on all units in your home or business. If you’re in Atlanta, or surrounding areas such as Marietta, Alpharetta, Duluth, or Peachtree City, and would like to set up an appointment, give us a call today.  We are always here to help with your heating and cooling needs!

Duct Sealing (Part I)

Making sure your ducts are properly sealed saves you money, conserves energy, and increases comfort in the home. A typical home’s heating and cooling systems make up around 40% of its energy use, and in many homes, not all systems are airtight and can be much more efficient. Most homes have systems made up of a network of tubes that circulate the air, keeping the air in the home at a comfortable temperature. Ducts are often made out of sheet metal, plastic, or fiberglass. When inspecting your ducts, check for signs of rodents that may be contributing to contaminated air in your home. When making any repairs, make sure the pipes will not freeze during cold weather by insulating them and wrapping them in heat tape. When installing insulation, the more you use the better. Be sure to secure it around the duct after you’ve sealed it.

We’ve all heard the numbers before, but here’s a nice little chart with a helpful breakdown of information. Buildings account for roughly 40% of all U.S. energy use. Or stated with more particularity, residential buildings account for 22% of all U.S. energy use and commercial buildings account for 18% of all U.S. energy use.
