In just a handful of days (March 20th), the first day of spring will be here.
Before we know it, we will be switching off our heaters and switching on our air conditioning. We will be packing away our boots, hats, and gloves and making plans to open up our cottages for the spring and the summer season.
But before we get way ahead of ourselves, there is still work to be done. And, as luck would have it, there are freebies to be had for the savvy early bird who wants them!
Shipton’s & Clean Air Solutions Want to Help You Save Money
This winter hasn’t been easy on furnaces in the Hamilton and surrounding areas.
We know this for a fact because we’ve spent all winter inspecting, maintaining, repairing, and, at times, replacing furnaces.
As well, our 24/7 emergency repair service has been as popular as ever this winter, and we’ve seen far too many shivering families welcoming us like, well, family as we arrive ASAP to fix their non-functioning heaters.
While we always love the business, we don’t want you to have to go through that with your furnace OR your air conditioner!
So we’ve teamed up with our sister company, Clean Air Solutions, to offer you what we are sure is the deal of the season.
Right now, when you purchase an air conditioning and furnace combo unit, we will throw in a professional air duct cleaning—absolutely FREE.
All you need to do to claim this Early Bird Special Deal is go here and claim yours.
Why Is An Indoor Air Duct Cleaning Important?
This is a great question! Unless you’ve been following our sister company’s weekly blog, you may not know much about what an air duct cleaning is or why it is important.
You might not even realize that, in most homes and workplaces today, the air indoors is up to five times MORE toxic than the air outside. Recent air quality studies suggest that the average home’s air supply may contain up to 500 known toxins.
Considering that, according to the Canadian Parks Council, the typical Canadian spends up to 90 percent of each 24-hour period inside breathing indoor air, this is a scary statistic.
To sum it up, unfortunately, your indoor air is likely quite polluted. Spritzing more sanitizing or deodorizing spray isn’t going to help much, since most of these commercial sprays are full of the same chemicals that are already toxifying your indoor air.
Opening your windows or doors can help some, but it’s still freezing outside!
Enter the professional air duct cleaning service. The reason why none of the helps you can think up will do more than place a band-aid on top of your toxic indoor air situation is that so much of the toxic matter is trapped inside your home’s air duct system.
As your furnace or air conditioner blows temperature-controlled air through the ducts and into each room in your home, it picks up the trapped toxins and blows them through as well.
So, while you might not be able to see it with your eyes, minute bits of dust, pet dander, pollen, bacteria, fungi, mould spores, dust mites, particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, and potent chemicals are raining down through your air registers with every heating or cooling cycle.
The only way to rid your home of these built-up, trapped toxins is to clean out your air duct system itself. This isn’t a DIY project, either, because it must be done with great care to avoid releasing any of the trapped matter back into your home’s air supply and it’s highly unlikely you have the proper apparatuses!
The good news is, this month you can get a professional air duct cleaning for FREE along with your purchase of a new furnace and air conditioning combo unit. So not only will you have a new high-efficiency heating and cooling system that is a money-saving, energy-saving powerhouse, but you will have pure, clean, beautiful, breathable indoor air to go along with it.
We think that is a deal that is pretty hard to resist, and we hope you will agree!
When To Do What
The best approach here is to have your indoor air duct system professionally cleaned first and then have your new furnace and air conditioning combo unit installed.
Ideally, both your air duct cleaning and new unit installation would be done on the same day, if possible.
This way, you are starting out completely clean, clear and fresh. We also recommend that you schedule a professional dryer vent cleaning and mattress cleaning at the same time to maximize removal of common allergens like dust, pet dander, and dust mites.
How to Ensure Your Clean Indoor Air Stays That Way
Finally, we strongly recommend that you make certain important changes to best support your clean, fresh air supply:
- Switch from commercial air fresheners and scented candles to essential oils or fresh citrus.
- Start using “green” all-natural cleaning products—you can even make your own.
- Wash and dry all of your pet’s bedding and any fabric toys regularly to remove as much pet hair and dander as possible.
- Replace your air filters and upgrade to HEPA filters for your HVAC system and vacuum cleaner.
