Keeping your HVAC system clean is one of the most important steps you can take in regards to improving the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your home. All of the air you breathe indoors at some point passes through your systems air handler. Inside the air handler there is an evaporator coil that looks a lot like the radiator on a car. When the cooling fins get clogged with dirt, dust and allergens, the system works harder to move air, raising energy consumption by up to 20 percent. Many odors, like the musty smell you sometimes notice in homes, start right there on the coils and fins. Most people do not think about them being dirty because they are hidden inside the box. If people could see them, they would be disgusted with their condition.
We use a safer, more effective, alternative to toxic cleaners, bleaches and solvents! Nu-Calgons Green Clean is formulated with powerful ingredients on the EPA’s Designed For Environment list of acceptable “green” materials. Green Clean is a very economical non-corrosive product formulated for total soil removal. This means we are able to cleanse your evaporator coil and condenser unit of dirt, allergens and other microscopic irritants that can make you uncomfortable and aggravate allergies and asthma. After the system maintenance is complete, we will disinfect the air handler with BBJ. This is the only EPA approved microbicide for the HVAC industry. BBJ kills everything from the Avian Flu to the common cold. This product will actively disinfect for up to 90 days, keeping your indoor air healthy by preventing the growth of microbial bacteria.

The Bradley Mechanical IAQ Precision Tune-Ups are a tough deal to beat. Our professional Tune-Up teams perform a multitude of services, including important safety and performance evaluations.

Preventive maintenance is one of the most important factors to keeping your HVAC system operating at optimal efficiency. Now that you have done the maintenance tune up, everything should be clean and back to ideal condition, right? This is where you could be wrong, many companies offer a tune up, but only a few actually clean the equipment.
