Obstructed dryer vents are the source of thousands of house fires every year. People often ignore or don't recognize the signs of a clogged dryer vent, and this seemingly small oversight can have disastrous results, including the loss of life and property. The best way to prevent house fires from starting in or around your dryer is to have your local Dryer Vent Wizard service your machine and ducts.
While a thorough air duct cleaning process must be done by professionally qualified service companies, there are a few steps you can take to help maintain the cleanliness of your heating and air conditioning system. One is to change your air filters regularly and make sure you have the right filters for your home and HVAC system. You should also have your system professionally inspected every one to two years to have a technician determine if your air ducts need to be cleaned. In between scheduled maintenance or inspections, you can do a visual check yourself by removing a wall or floor register and shining a flashlight inside the duct. If you can see debris, dirt or dust, it’s time to have your ducts cleaned by a licensed, insured HVAC professional.
"Our electric bill has dropped around seventy dollars a month and that is with the a/c set at 76 degrees. I know it will be lower next summer since I am now taking advantage of the energy start setting the thermostat has. Also our son's coughing at night has stopped and I think it is due in part to the clean air effects filtration system that we got when we purchased the system. We are very happy with our new A/C system. Also we got a refund from Clay electric for having a 17 SEER system and we will get to write some off on our taxed next year."
"Over Labor Day weekend at 8pm our A/C system went down -- permanently! Our normal AC company was not working and so we went through the phone book and found Waychoff's! It was unbelievable that one of your employees came to our home at 10PM at no extra charge! On Labor Day the Waychoff's team installed the Trane. They were professional, knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, humorous and extremely likeable. They even brought in cardboard boxes in order to keep my carpet clean. Installation went so fast! They really earned their money, and I assure you that they are not wasting yours. They educated us about the A/C Systems and SEER score. They were great teacher and we learned a lot that day. They assisted us in financing and we were surprised at the monthly payments which were much lower than we expected. The rep from the finance company called us and he was just pleasant and professional as the crew. Later in the week they returned with our 2 rebate forms already filled out and ready to sign! WOW! that kind of service is that! All in all, we are very happy with everything and this house is COLD! We are happy to endorse Waychoff's!"
You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.
We highly recommend using a Florida Certified Mechanical Contractor to inspect and clean your air system. As a certified Mechanical Contractor the technicians, are properly trained to decontaminate your air system and not only can they properly clean your air system due to their extensive knowledge and experience with air systems and indoor air quality, but they can also alert you of any additional areas that might need attention to improve upon your indoor air quality such as; filtration considerations, damage, structural air flow problems, or inefficiencies of your present system.

"This a very professional company that came the next day after being contacted late in the day prior. The two guys that came to the door that did the work were well dressed and very courteous. They cleaned my diver vent and it works perfectly. I have their literature and will be calling them when I m ready for duct cleaning. Nice equipment too! Thanks for the good work. Nice not to have scroungy guys showing up at the door. "
