When Was The Last Time You Checked Your HVAC Air Filters?

4/12/2021 (Permalink)

Dirty air filters and ventilation systems are almost always to blame for poor indoor air quality, but it is such an easy fix! In many cases, HVAC systems are left for some time without inspection. Dirty air ducts can not only circulate bad odors, but contaminants such as mold and allergens that may cause health effects for those in the building. 

Keeping your building’s HVAC and ducts clean can increase the air quality in your building and extend the life-span of your equipment. In addition to this, regularly inspected equipment will be very efficient, operating at its peak condition. 

While duct cleaning is not always necessary, the SERVPRO of Santee & Lakeside team is always available to give an inspection and give recommendations regarding any air quality concerns you may have.
