Dust Allergy Solution
Are you experiencing allergies or feel like your home’s air isn’t as clean as it could be? It’s time to Just Call John’s! Your home is a living being; inhaling and exhaling just like you do. When the ducts aren’t properly sized and sealed, the system has to work harder to heat and cool your home. It’s as if the home itself is having an asthma attack. The result is more dust and contaminants inside (instead of staying outside) and a temperature differential of more than a degree or two.
Our customer Joyce called us after hearing a rave review about John’s Refrigeration from her neighbor. She needed help with the amount of dust in her home and temperature differentials as much as five degrees on the east and west sides of her home. She has pets, but thought dusting once a day was excessive. And she was right.
We inspected the duct system and found the intake wasn’t sized properly and there were leaks. This meant dust was entering the home, along with air from the system, and airflow was inconsistent throughout the home. This created a need to clean the home frequently and be frustrated by varying temperatures within the home.
Solution and Results
We added a return, made a larger duct to the existing return, and sealed registers in an effort to keep dust, pollen, and other contaminants outside and the system running efficiently.
Joyce immediately noticed the quietness of the A/C when it was running. Over time, she also noticed less dust and has gone from dusting once a day to only twice a month! With just a few simple changes, we created more air flow, increased comfort, decreased the amount of dust, and make the system more efficient by properly sizing and sealing the ductwork.
