Air Duct Cleaning
You're breathing some of the millions of germ-carrying dust and mold particles from your air ducts that cause allergies, asthma, even terminal illnesses.
In all homes, the air ducts gather dust, dirt, human skin flakes and pet dander, becoming holding cells for allergens, mold spores, germs and other contaminants. The problem begins even before you move into a newly-built home, with the buildup of drywall dust, sawdust and other debris in ducts that provide a perfect environment for the growth of germs and allergens. It's more of a problem since the 1970s, when new construction techniques made buildings more tightly sealed, which restricts the flow of fresh air. Every day, your family breathes air that is continually circulated through contaminated ductwork by your HVAC system.
The problem has gotten so serious, the Environmental Protection Agency has found that indoor air is as much as 70 times more polluted than outdoor air, and people today spend 90% of their time indoors!

Extended Equipment Life
9 out of 10 system failures are caused by dirt and dust according to the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service. One of the functions of the fan, located inside of your air handler, is to keep the heat exchanger cool. Accumulated dirt and debris can reduce the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) as much as 50%! This is the most common cause of cracks in heat exchangers. By having your system cleaned by HAP, you may prevent pre- mature breakdown & aging of your heating and cooling system.

According to the EPA, a build up of only .042 inches of dirt on a heating coil can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21%. A clean air conveyance system provided by IMC may help to increase efficiency and therefore may help to reduce heating and cooling costs.
