Air therapy, Air in your home making you sick?

Your furnace, air conditioner, and duct system function as the respiratory system of your home.  When it becomes contaminated and congested it should be cleaned so it can “breathe”  normally and efficiently.

Take the survey below, don’t worry it is easy it only has YES or NO questions.  If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, it may be time to get your furnace or air conditioner clean and maintained (now ONLY $73 (reg. price $128)!  Call Valley Services, Heating and Air Conditioning Specialists!


Indoor Air Quality Survey

Does anyone in the house have any allergies, asthma, or other respiratory health problems?

Does anyone in your family suffer from headaches, nasal congestion, or other sinus problems at night or in the morning?

Is there a smoker in the house?

Do you have dogs, cats, or other pets?

Do you notice a musty or stale smell when the furnace or air conditioner runs?

Do you notice dust on your furniture shortly after cleaning?

Does it seem like there is not enough air flow coming from your vents?

Is your furnace equipped only with a standard “throw-away” fiber glass filter?


Dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander, and other airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system every time the furnace or air conditioner runs.  These contaminants build up inside the ductwork over time and can help make your duct system an ideal breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew, and other microbes.  The removal of contaminants (HEPA Filtration) from the entire HVAC system is recognized by industry experts as the most effective way to eliminate air duct pollutants.

During these Furnace Maintenances (aka Furnace Clean and Tune) we also check the heat exchangers for cracks which can leak Carbon Monoxide into your home and clean out the blower so it circulates cleaner air.

We hope to hear from you soon!



  1. This is a great post about the importance of indoor air quality.

    Numerous studies have proven that most indoor air is many times more polluted than outdoor air. This would surprise most people.

    Indoor AIr Cleaners hooked up to the HVAC system are a great way to reduce indoor pollution, and in most cases are more efficient and produce less greenhouse gases than those stand alone units some people buy.

    Thanks for the valuable information.

    Great blog!

    • Thanks for the response! There are so many people out there with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues that can be helped with HEPA filtration or some other high quality filter.

      Thanks for the comment!
