Duct Cleaning

With indoor air quality and poor air pollution becoming a growing concern, most homeowners are still not aware of the health hazards breathing dirty air can cause. Without inspection and cleaning, your air duct system could be contaminated with particles that can be harmful to you and your family's health! Over several years the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ranked indoor air pollution as one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health.

What it is, and its benefits for your home



You may have come across the term HVAC before - Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning - but it's possible that you haven't thought about it in terms of how it can improve your property and your life. Wherever you live in the world, temperature regulation is pretty much a necessity, whether you need to cool your property down or heat it up - or both, at different times of the year which is the most likely option. You may also not be aware of the importance of good ventilation for keeping your house clean and fresh, but also for your own health and the health of your family. All of these things are extremely important, and that's why we at BCIT Mechanical pride ourselves in our work to improve your quality of life.



Heating is perhaps one which many people feel they couldn't live without. While heat can be uncomfortable, cold temperatures are more dangerous, and can make you lethargic and slow. Anyone who has tried to get out of bed on a cold morning knows this, but most people are also aware that heating costs can rocket out of control in the winter months. Thats why it's so important to have an efficient heating system which works for you. You need to be able to adjust both the timer and the temperature to ensure your home is heated to the desired temperature at the right times. For example, if you're out at work all day, you don't want it to be cranking out warmth into an empty house, but you do want it to be snug and cozy when you get in, tired from a long day. 


The flip side of this problem is hot temperatures, solved by good  Air Conditioning. While hot temperatures are unlikely to be as dangerous as cold ones, they can equally make you feel lethargic and unproductive. By keeping your house cool, you'll make it easier to get round to household jobs because you won't find yourself sweating uncomfortably while you work. You'll also find you sleep better, since cool temperatures are much more conducive to making you fall asleep and stay asleep, and you will be more comfortable than if you're sweating in bed. 


Ventilation is an area which many people are less aware of, but is extremely important. Badly ventilated homes tend to get moldy, and often smell unpleasant because odors can't escape. Lack of airflow makes airborne bacteria more likely to hang around, and generally reduces the health of your family, leaving you vulnerable to diseases and allergens. 


At BCIT Mechanical, we rate the comfort of your home as being paramount importance. Being comfortable and keeping the air fresh is essential to keep yourself feeling good and staying motivated to deal with life's challenges. Whatever the temperature outside, you shouldn't be either sweating or shivering indoors, and you should be able to make flexible adjustments to any system. Our core beliefs drive us to provide you with reliable, efficient, friendly service which will help you keep your home in its best condition.
