If you’re like most people in Folsom and El Dorado Hills, spring cleaning has been on your mind ever since the beautiful weather has returned. Chances are, though, your spring cleaning checklist isn’t quite as complete as you think it is. Perhaps you’ve been focusing up until now on de-cluttering and getting rid of dirt and grime buildup that may have accumulated over the course of the winter…But what about your home’s indoor air quality?

So…what if the lungs of your home stop functioning?
Knowing about your ducts and the facets of a duct installation can help keep your wallet thick, and your home comfortable. Duct systems are used to deliver and remove conditioned and unconditioned air from a building or home. To install ductwork properly and effectively, it must be properly designed.
