What Is Air Duct Cleaning?

Duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and if the air handling unit is not properly installed, maintained, and operated, these components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris.

Why Is Duct Cleaning So Important?

Duct cleaning is important because your ducts are the LAST step to ensure that you and your family are breathing TRULY CLEAN AIR! Duct Cleaning is also important to the health and efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment.

Why are McGowan’s technicians NATE-certified?

Certification comes from the independent North American Technician Excellence (NATE) organization, which certifies service and installation technicians via a knowledge-based test. To achieve certification, technicians must score 70 or better on core knowledge and specialties, such as air distribution, heat pumps, oil and gas heat and more. Our participation in the NATE program means that the McGowan’s technician who provides your service has met the industry’s highest standards.

What size AC system is best for my needs?

You can waste money with a system that’s not properly sized for your needs. One that’s too small can be overtaxed, running constantly to heat or cool your home. One that’s too large means you’re paying to cool or heat space that you don’t actually have, and an oversized system can make it difficult to control the comfort level. Our technicians can perform a thorough load calculation to make sure you have a system that can keep your energy costs in line.

Should I repair or replace my HVAC system?

It may seem that repairing an older system is less expensive than replacing it, but the costs of frequent repairs combined with higher energy costs due to inefficiency can cost you more in the long run. To determine what’s right for your home and discuss your options, contact us to schedule a free Comfort Consultation.

What thermostat is best?

If it’s been several years since you’ve replaced your thermostat, you may be surprised at the number of options now available. New thermostats have a broad range of programmable features that will help you save money. Our technicians will be glad to recommend the thermostat that’s right for you.

Why are all of your new residential air conditioners “Energy Star Compliant”?

About 50 percent of all the energy consumed by households is due to heating and cooling. Using equipment that qualifies for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star program is just one of the ways McGowan’s helps you gain the benefits of high-efficiency heating and cooling, which includes lower energy bills and less pollution in our atmosphere.

How much will it cost to replace my Heating and AC system?

There are a number of factors that will determine the cost:

  • The size of your home
  • The type and condition of your existing ductwork
  • The type of thermostat you need
  • Whether your need additional equipment, such as special filtering systems for indoor air quality

McGowan’s complete range of air conditioning and heating systems and technicians skilled in calculating your system needs ensures that you will receive the system that’s right for your home and budget.

What preventative maintenance measures can I take?

Properly maintaining your system can save you money by reducing your energy and repair costs. Regularly changing your air filters is important, as is regular inspections of your system by qualified professionals. Our HVAC Preventative Maintenance plans are the best way to keep your system running at peak efficiency. In addition to automatic, regularly scheduled inspections, you’ll also receive preferential service scheduling, discounts on repair parts and labor and the peace of mind knowing that you have a safe, efficient system.
