Seattle Furnace specializes in ductless heating maintenance, installation and repairs. Our experienced technicians have been trained to meet strict industry guidelines to correctly size, install, repair and maintain every ductless system.
Ductless cleaning and maintenance
Seattle Furnace offers air duct cleaning, sporicidin solutions and ductwork sanitization that work to thoroughly clean and deodorize air ducts. Our service leaves ducts smelling fresh and clears them of harmful dust and debris. We use commercial grade equipment operated by licensed and insured indoor air quality specialists. The technicians use the latest industry techniques to clean your home’s air duct system efficiently and effectively.
Annual cleaning and maintenance of your ducts is important to the overall health of your heating and cooling systems and may be required to keep your warranties active. Regular maintenance will also help to keep your ductless system running longer, better and with fewer breakdowns. Over time, annual cleaning and maintenance actually saves money.
If your cooling system isn’t working properly, you may have a duct issue requiring repair or replacement.
Here are some common duct problems that could be contributing to a broken air conditioning system:
- Duct work may be incorrectly sized for cooling
- Air is leaking from the supply and return air ducts
- Low R value insulation and air leakage from outside walls
- Excessive ductwork that runs too far from the cooling source furnace
- Home heated with radiators so there is no air duct distribution system in the house
You can expect the following from Seattle Furnace ductless cleaning services:
- Commercial grade truck mounted duct cleaning equipment
- Checking for access holes and sealing/re-insulating them before cleaning to the duct work to ensure that the ducts are air tight
- A full system cleaning through open access ports or doors
- Inspection of insulation, register boots and other asbestos containing materials
- Use of vacuum equipment that vents particles outside of the home. If the vacuum exhausts inside the home, high-efficiency particle air (HEPA) vacuuming equipment is used.
- Brushing is used in addition to vacuuming to ensure that all dust and particles are removed. (Soft-bristled brushes are used for fiberglass duct board and sheet metal ducts internally lined with fiberglass).
- Respect for your property: our technicians wear booties, cover our work area and clean any debris we create.
You will receive before and after pictures of your ducts and a report with any needed/performed repairs.
Poorly installed or corroded ductwork can increase your heating and cooling bill by up to an additional 30 percent. Over time this can add up to thousands of dollars, depending on the size of your house. Worse, leaky ducts can poison indoor air with dust, mold and other toxins that can cause serious health issues for your family. While having air ducts professionally cleaned can improve air quality, your duct system may have more serious issues that require replacement. If you suspect that leaky ducts are causing a buildup of mold or dust in your home, contact us today to schedule an inspection. We will let you know our honest diagnosis and install new ducting for your home if necessary.
Ductless air conditioner
A ductless air-conditioner can be an ideal solution for houses with or without ducts; it is a simple and economical option particularly for a home with no ducts installed. A ductless air-conditioner consists basically of two main parts: a “condenser” and “evaporator” that work together to deliver cooled air throughout the house.
Condenser (located outdoors)
A condenser is an outside unit that dissipates heat taken from within the house to the outside while sending a cooling medium to the evaporator fan coil unit located in the house. The condenser usually sits on the ground and is connected to the inside fan coil evaporator unit with copper tubing. The size of the recommended condenser depends on the size of the house and/or number of rooms needing cooling.
Evaporator (inside air handling unit)
The evaporator is connected to the outside condenser with copper refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring. The evaporator is a stylish air handling unit that blows cooled air into the room in which it is located. There can be as few as one air handling evaporator unit working or several evaporators working collaboratively with the outdoor condenser.
