What Are the Benefits of Professional Duct Cleaning?

Monday, June 10th, 2024

We offer duct services in Maysville, KY for our customers to help their HVAC systems operate at peak levels. After all, the “V” in HVAC stands for ventilation, and the ventilation system needs ducts in good condition to work. 

It also needs clean ductwork, and that’s where professional duct cleaning is crucial. You don’t need to have this service done every year, but it’s important to remember to have it scheduled every three to five years—or have it done right away if you’ve never done it before.

We know you might feel skeptical about this. “How dirty can my ducts get, and why would that be a problem for my home?” The answer is that your ducts can get extremely dirty, and dirty ductwork will create a host of problems you could have otherwise easily avoided.

Is My AC Enough to Handle Humidity?

Monday, May 13th, 2024

Humidity, the amount of water moisture in the air, is a well-known enemy of summer comfort. When relative humidity is high (above 60%), it makes it harder for the human body to release heat through perspiration. With more heat trapped in the body, temperatures feel hotter. An 80°F summer day can feel like it’s 90°F. That’s the power that humidity can have over your comfort.

High humidity can create other troubles in a home. All that moisture makes it easier for mold and mildew to grow, leading to a combination of building damage and nasty allergy triggers. Moisture isn’t good for electronics in a home either.

At this point, you might say, “Isn’t my AC taking care of the humidity? After all, it makes the house cooler.” There’s a story to that, as we’ll explain. We’re not only pros when it comes to air conditioning, we also work with dehumidifiers in Maysville, KY, and we can give you the lowdown on your AC and humidity.
