Find Your Local DUCTZ Learn more Bathroom Exhaust Systems Bathroom Exhaust Fans Moisture in a bathroom can lead to peeling finishes, warped doors, and even mold growth. The purpose of a bathroom exhaust fan is to control moisture and remove airborne odors and pollutants. While maintenance of bathroom exhaust fans is quite often overlooked, a proper maintenance schedule will ensure quiet and efficient operation, increase the fan's lifespan, improve indoor air quality and keep the unit attractive in appearance. Your bathroom exhaust fans should receive routine maintenance performed yearly by DUCTZ. Bathroom Ventilation Improperly installed bathroom exhaust fans are often vented into unsuitable spaces. Venting exhaust fans into these spaces can cause hot humid air to be discharged directly into your homes attic or crawlspace. These conditions could lead to water infiltration and may impede the exhaust fans air flow. DUCTZ will verify if the exhaust fan is clean and properly vented to the outside. DUCTZ professionals are certified, qualified and trained in bathroom exhaust fans and ventilation systems.

Airflow Problems How to Balance HVAC Air Flow This article was created by a professional writer and edited by experienced copy editors, both qualified members of the Demand Media Studios community. All articles go through an editorial process that includes subject matter guidelines, plagiarism review, fact-checking, and other steps in an effort to provide reliable information. Your heating and air conditioning unit will not warm or cool your home properly without balance in the HVAC air flow. If your home has uneven temperatures from room to room, you need to balance the air flow in your HVAC system. A huge reason for inflated heating and cooling bills can be attributed to airflow problems within the HVAC system. There are many possible causes, and each result is the same: little or no airflow out of your supply air registers. Determining the cause is relatively easy if you know where to look. Consider some pointers on finding the culprit to low air flow. Instructions Check the HVAC filter located on the side of the HVAC unit. This is the number one reason for airflow problems. If it is dirty, there will be significantly reduced airflow, and you will need to replace it. Check the supply air and return air registers. If these are shut or blocked, air can't get in or out of the rooms they feed. Move large furniture away if it is placed in front of the registers. Open registers if they are closed. Check your blower fan for excessive dirt. Running an HVAC unit without a filter can cause the blower fan to get dirty and reduce airflow. Hire an experienced HVAC technician to clean the blower fan if this is the cause. Look at your evaporator coil to see if it is dirty or iced up. You may need to cut an access hole into the supply air plenum to see the coil. You can install a patch afterward. Low refrigerant can cause your coil to ice up when you are running your air conditioner. This will block airflow. A licensed HVAC technician will have to check your refrigerant if this is the cause. Examine all your ductwork to see if it is crushed or pulling apart. Flexible ductwork is especially vulnerable to damage. Replace any damaged ductwork.
Indoor Air Quality HVAC Diagnostic Services for Indoor Air Quality DUCTZ Diagnostic Services are regularly analyzed by mechanical system specialists from the very best in the country. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Researching an HVAC System's Effect on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) When you need to know if a mechanical system contains microbial growth, bacteria and collect other particulates, DUCTZ professionals can provide thorough, qualified analysis and reliable answers to your questions. DUCTZ professionals analyze the mechanical systems, taking into account the environmental conditions such as temperature, relative humidity, moisture intrusions, water damage, building pressurization, carbon dioxide levels and fungal dispersion. Environmental conditions are directly linked to IAQ, as well as the overall performance and efficiency of the HVAC system. DUCTZ professionals understand that not all IAQ issues relate to the mechanical systems; however, it is the best place to start. In fact, the EPA's IAQ Design Tools for Schools recommend that schools and other commercial buildings follow specific guidelines when conducting a proper assessment of the mechanical systems. DUCTZ professionals comply with the latest EPA, NADCA and ACCA recommendations, as well as other state and federal recommendations. As the EPA states from their An Office Building Occupant's Guide to Indoor Air Quality Design, Maintenance and Operation of Building Ventilation Systems, "Maintaining good Indoor Air Quality requires attention to the building's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system; the design and layout of the space; and pollutant source management. HVAC systems include all of the equipment used to ventilate, heat, and cool the building; to move the air around the building (ductwork); and to filter and clean the air. These systems can have a significant impact on how pollutants are distributed and removed. HVAC systems can even act as sources of pollutants in some cases, such as when ventilation air filters become contaminated with dirt and/or moisture and when microbial growth results from stagnant water in drip pans or from uncontrolled moisture inside of air ducts." Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Facts The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists poor Indoor Air Quality as the fourth-largest environmental threat to our country. A staggering 42.6 million individuals nationwide suffer from asthma and/or allergies, or have other respiratory illnesses and may be at a greater risk of health complications associated with poor air quality in their homes. (American Lung Association). 5 out of 10 Americans are not aware of the health risk poor IAQ can pose, according to a study by the American Lung Association. Additionally, many Americans are not aware of the steps that can be taken to improve IAQ. The benefits of HVAC system reconditioning: Improve Indoor Air Quality Wet portions of HVAC systems are notorious breeding grounds for biological contaminants. An annual inspection of a home's HVAC system will reveal the severity of contaminant levels within the system and the extent of cleaning necessary. Having an HVAC system reconditioned will remove allergens like dust, dander, insect remains, microbial growth and bacteria from the system and will, in turn, provide for a healthier environment to live or work in. Optimize Energy Efficiency A typical duct system (component of the HVAC system) will lose 25 to 40 percent of the heating or cooling energy put out by the HVAC system. Un-insulated, disconnected, torn, damaged or dead-end ducts are mainly responsible for that loss of energy. The cleanliness of the coil system in the main HVAC system is another crucial factor to a home's energy efficiency. Increase System Longevity The HVAC system is the most expensive mechanical system in your home, and replacing it can cost thousands of dollars and tremendous aggravation. Annual inspections and regular maintenance can prolong the life of an HVAC system by years. What sets DUCTZ apart from the competition? DUCTZ professionals do more than just duct cleaning. DUCTZ professionals restore HVAC systems, including all of the mechanical components, and bring the HVAC system to near-peak cleanliness for optimum system operation. DUCTZ professionals utilize HEPA filters on vacuums and collection units during HVAC reconditioning to protect a home or business against recontamination during cleaning activities. DUCTZ professionals hold patents for the foil lining technology used to resurface ductwork that is severely damaged by microbial growth, insects or bacteria.

Mechanical System Hygienic Evaluations Establishing Criteria for HVAC System Cleaning Prior to initiating any cleaning activities, DUCTZ or an independent Indoor Air Quality Consultant should determine the system cleanliness and economic practicality of undertaking restorative cleaning activities. This determination shall include a site survey of the building; a visual assessment of the HVAC system’s components; age of the components under consideration; and an economic assessment of HVAC system cleaning versus equipment/component replacement. Upon completion of the analysis, and in accordance with the clients’ needs, the criteria for level of cleanliness shall be established, documented and agreed upon by all involved parties. Visible contaminants within HVAC systems from rodent or insect infestation, storm or flood damage, water infiltration, fire and smoke damage, mold, construction or remodeling particulates, or general debris blowing out of supply registers or grilles are conditions necessitating implementation of this standard. This process can be conducted by DUCTZ and may require the involvement of a third-party Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) whenever correlations, or assertions, of HVAC system cleanliness are linked to occupant health.
