"The best way to improve symptoms is to eliminate the source of the allergen from the home whether that is the pet or a heavily mite-infested upholstered chair. The next best step is to take measures to decrease the exposure to the allergen. Other important measures are to increase the circulation of outdoor air into the home and to reduce the humidity as much as possible."

We know you understand that cleaner air is healthier air, and healthy air leads to healthier lives. At Johnston Cooling and Heating we promote and provide duct cleaning as an essential way to improve indoor air quality, and prolong the life of you and your system. Poor indoor air quality and poor system efficiency directly affect our health, our environment, and our wallets. Air sensitive populations such as asthma and allergy sufferers, people with respiratory conditions, children, and pregnant women are a few whose health is directly at risk in poor air conditions. Fortunately, we offer solutions. Here is our process:
Our air quality solutions start with our thorough indoor air quality evaluation and testing. This allows you to see where your indoor air quality ranks, and what you are breathing. Then, we look into the existing ducts with a fiber optic camera. Often what we find is quite scary. Duct systems are a favorite hiding space for mold, bacteria, pet dander, small toys, and dust mites.
After testing, we clean all the existing duct work. Once finished, we fog the entire system with an antimicrobial spray, and finish with a thorough cleaning of the existing heating and cooling systems. This is the most efficient way to clean the entire system, prevent cross contamination, and inhibit future mold growth.
While cleaning, we check the existing duct work for minor flaws or holes. Resealing these places helps reduce or eliminate future contamination and improves comfort and energy efficiency.
Properly protecting air flow protects the HVAC system and ductwork from further contamination. Restricted air flow puts more stress on your system reducing its lifespan and efficiency. For your convenience, we offer a variety of enhanced filtration upgrades such as, standard and electro static filters, new air-flow registers, Lint Alert Alarm Installation, UV lights, and anti-microbial treatments.
