IMPROVE YOUR IAQ WITH PENGUIN AIR & PLUMBING
Expert Air Quality Services for the Valley
The indoor air quality (IAQ) in your home could be affecting the health of you and your family. How bad is the IAQ inside your home? As it turns out, it can be 5 to 7 times worse than the air quality outside of your home (EPA)!
What’s in the Air You’re Breathing?
You probably aren’t thinking about what’s causing you to sneeze, what’s causing you to cough, and what’s irritating your eyes inside your home. The truth is, it could be caused by something right there in the air you are breathing. Isn’t it amazing that you could actually be more allergy-free going outside than spending time closed up inside the house? A lot of people who own older homes don’t realize that when their homes were built, they were not built quite as tight as they should have been. In addition to things like air filters and air cleaners, there’s a delicate balance between the insulation and ventilation in your home.
Look at your home’s registers, most of which will be in the ceilings or down in your wall. They often have big corners and gaps around them because they are not properly sealed. The biggest problem with these gaps is that they are responsible for pulling in air from your attic and from your walls, which is hot, dirty air that can be contaminated by insulation. The dust that sneaks into your home can significantly affect the health of you and your household in the form of allergies and other health problems.
Leaky ducts contribute to:
- Loss of conditioned air to unused spaces of the home, contributing to higher energy bills
- Unnecessary strain on your HVAC system due to an unbalanced system, causing decreased equipment lifespans and higher energy bills
- Humidity problems leading to costly repairs
- Lower comfort levels and decreased airflow
- Must, mold, and mildew issues leading to compromised indoor air quality
Complete Duct Sealing Services
Dust coming out of the corners of registers is a dead giveaway that there is a problem with your air quality. Another sign of poor IAQ is dust settling around the home on furniture and tables. A lot of people think their home is dusty from open windows. In most cases, the dust is literally coming in right at the source – from the registers in their ceiling that are bringing in large amounts of attic dust directly into the home.
In order to prevent this from happening, Penguin Air & Plumbing offers professional Aeroseal Duct Sealing technology, which seals your entire duct system from the inside.

Our experienced technicians can address all IAQ issues to ensure they are resolved in your home. In addition to our duct services we also offer high-tech air scrubbers. The Air Scrubber Plus® system takes care of common air pollutants, such as odors, pet dander, allergens, and the common flu virus. Our air scrubbing system utilizes germicidal light waves that create enviro-scrubbing molecules that land on surfaces throughout the home. This helps clean and disinfect (up to 99%) of the air in a home, as well as remove micro-organisms (bacteria), allergens, odors and dust particles. The UV light, along with a proper duct sealing, will ensure your air is free of allergens.
