At Bryans United Air Conditioning, a HVAC company serving the Gretna, Louisiana area, we receive frequent requests from customers wondering how to solve common ventilation problems. Since homes and businesses in Gretna are more energy efficient than they were in the past, this can cause ventilation problems that were previously unheard of. Also, people tend to spend more time indoors than they did in past generations. This means that they are producing more steam from showers, producing more cooking fumes, washing and drying more clothes and so forth. All of these conditions can lead to ventilation problems in the home.
Another common cause of ventilation problems is the lack of duct cleaning. Air ducts are the long, cylindrical tubes that help your air conditioner move air throughout your home in Gretna. When duct cleaning is neglected, the air ducts can become polluted with dust mites, mold, dead insects, harmful bacteria and more. Ductwork that is clogged can’t do a very efficient job at keeping the air flowing and preventing ventilation problems. If you don’t already arrange for duct cleaning once a year, we highly recommend that you consider it this year. It is ideal to have your duct cleaning performed at the same time as the preventative maintenance tune-up for your air conditioner.
To solve the most typical ventilation problems, we at Bryans United Air Conditioning recommend installing vents in all bathrooms, the laundry room and above the stove. This will help to prevent the steam from developing into moisture and eventually into mold. Our company also has products available to aid in home ventilation. These include air purifiers, dehumidifiers, humidity monitors and more. The skilled service technicians at our air conditioning company would be happy to discuss the benefits of each type of product during a consultation at your home.
