Beyond Spring Cleaning

By Amber Mabe

Spring is finally here, and with it, warmer days. This is the time many of us love to give our heating and cooling systems a break, open the windows, and let the fresh spring air cleanse away the winter stuffiness. Stephen and Kesia Bagby, owners of Cool Breeze 1250 Heating and Cooling, say spring is the perfect time to perform important yearly maintenance and inspections on your system.

“Dirt and dust circulating and building up in the ducts can cause corrosion and shorten the lifespan of a system if not maintained and cleaned properly,” says Kesia. “You have metal, moisture condensing, humidity, and cold refrigerant lines,” she explains, “it creates a perfect biochemical environment for corrosion to happen, and also biological growth.” Mold and other allergens are all around us, waiting for a moist environment in which to grow. Cool Breeze 1250 offers duct cleaning and sealing to combat these issues and create a clean, efficient air delivery system for your home. First, the ducts need to be cleaned. Cool Breeze uses negative pressure duct cleaning machines to clear dirt, mites, bugs, and other undesirables from your system, allowing you and your family to breathe easy. After ducts have been cleaned, it is important to periodically check for leaks. Leaky ductwork can bring in extra dust or contaminants from attics, basements, or crawl spaces, as well as ruin the efficiency of the system, driving your electric bill higher. “Having a leak in your ductwork is like having a hole in your gas tank,” Kesia says, “but it is not just the fact that you are losing energy. Fixing leaks actually makes your home more comfortable and reduces allergens.” Cool Breeze 1250 is the only provider in the Triad that uses a state-of-the-art technology called Aeroseal to find and stop leaks. In years past, technicians were limited to stopping leaks that could be found by the naked eye in easy to access areas of the ductwork. However, leaks often occur in inaccessible areas. Aeroseal uses a pressurized monitoring and delivery system to track and seal leaks, providing homeowners with real-time performance diagnostics and improvements. Kesia says no matter the age of the house or system, duct sealing always makes a difference.

Unfortunately, along with beautiful spring weather comes pollen and other allergens that may have you hiding from the spring air rather than welcoming it into your home. Cool Breeze 1250 offers many solutions to air quality and allergen problems. With more people than ever working from home and spending more time breathing in the recirculating air of their systems, many are experiencing increased allergic sensitivities and discomfort. Although air filters are helpful, they will not solve all your air quality issues. “There are small particles that can get through the filter,” Kesia explains, “buying a better air filter can help, but it can also damage the system. When you restrict the airflow, your system does not have as much volume flowing in and it can actually shorten the lifespan of your motor.” Cool Breeze 1250 uses several methods to combat allergens. One of these methods is ionization, which uses electrical charges to bind allergens together, causing them to stick together and be more easily trapped by existing filters. Another option uses UV lights that destroy the DNA of viruses and bacteria, preventing them from reproducing in your system.

A commitment to bringing their clients the best services, while guaranteeing not only their equipment but also customer satisfaction, has made Cool Breeze 1250 a trusted household name in Kernersville since 2012. Although health issues have caused Stephen to spend more time in the office and less time in customers’ homes, he and Kesia and their team continue to work hard to provide the best care for homeowners. Stephen does dialysis at home 20 hours a week while he awaits a kidney transplant. This is a time consuming and taxing process, but it has not stopped him from serving the community by managing the office. He and his family look forward to the day a kidney donation will allow him to resume his role as the face customers are so used to seeing. Meanwhile, Cool Breeze 1250 continues to move forward and serve customers just as they always have. “We aspire to create or restore a comfortable, healthy, indoor air environment for our clients in a timely fashion,” says Kesia. “By doing so, this allows our team and clients to focus on family, rest, and worship.”
