A. We recommend you have them inspected annually for not just mold or dirt, but air leaks, rodents and condition. If you keep up on your filters and your AC maintenance you may never need your ducts cleaned! However, if the ducts are dirty or have been exposed to excessive moisture (sweating, humidity, water events) your indoor air quality is now compromised and a good cleaning can get you back to breathing easier in just one day.
A. Mold needs moisture to grow; anything over 60% relative humidity for even a week or two can allow very typical molds to grow on indoor surfaces. Typically becomes visible as a light powdery substance on clothes, wood furniture, shoes, or even growing out of the peanut butter jar. By the time you see mold forming it is already an air quality concern. Call a specialist to determine the severity of the situation before you expose yourself to something toxic.
A. If you are seasonal, on vacation, or just plain like the Florida heat, it would be wise to install a de-humidistat. This will allow an HVAC system to be controlled based only on humidity levels. You can set the thermostat at 85 degrees if you want, as long as the humidity is being maintained below 60%. It can be hot as the desert, as long as it is almost as dry. Our HVAC people can set you up in a flash. Call us for more details.
A. An inspection will help to determine what the musty smell is related to whether it be a small breach at an AC duct, a plumbing leak, or maybe you just need some better ventilation. Thermal imaging is also used to see if we are pulling air from somewhere we should not be. We can help you figure it out and point you in the right direction to getting corrections made.
