Nationwide, May is recognized as Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. However, in Austin we don’t need an awareness month… we deal with it daily! Like so many Austin transplants, I never struggled with seasonal allergies until I moved to Central Texas.
A common strategy for coping with allergies is to address indoor air quality (IAQ), and many would suggest that duct cleaning is an integral part of managing IAQ. Everyday we receive calls at Go Green from customers looking for duct cleaning, and our answer is simple:
If your duct system was properly installed, you should never have to clean your ducts because they would have been properly sealed upon installation. When ducts are properly designed and sealed, they are impenetrable and harmful particles cannot get into your duct system. That being said, I realize that unfortunately many duct systems are not properly sealed upon installation, and that is why people experience major issues with IAQ.
Another factor to consider is that duct cleaning is not a gentle process. It aggravates the duct system and ultimately degrades the duct. It also kicks up dust and particles, compromising the integrity of your entire HVAC system and most likely making your allergies even worse.
Do not listen to other HVAC companies that tell you your ducts need to be cleaned or try to take your money for such a service. Duct cleaning is a band-aid fix, and actually exacerbates the issue. The proper solution is to seal the ducts and to consider a whole home air purifier. These easy steps are guaranteed to fix your IAQ problem and to help you live more allergy-free! If you’re experiencing IAQ issues, Go Green would love to help you out — the right way.
Totally happy with my A.C. check today. Feared the worst but you guys really came through. You are now my go-to A.C. guys. Highly recommended!
Our technician, Mike was great! Went above and beyond to answer all my questions as well as doing a very efficient job.
5-star service all around from the initial consultation to the final install. Thank you for a flawless experience, Brandon Acosta!
After receiving a ridiculously high quote from the HVAC company sent out by our home warranty, my husband wanted a second opinion. Our technician Mike was thorough and honest about what needed repair. Not only was the diagnosis much simpler, so was the price. Mike got the repair done quickly and was very professional. We’ll definitely be calling Go Green again.
Such a professional process…from estimate through installation. The payment options were amazing. Brandon is terrific …explained everything from beginning to end. The technicians, knowledgeable, fast and thorough. Highly recommend Go Green!
