Indoor Air Sampling Test

Learn more about the air in your home with an air sampling test. Using Cooper Mechanical Services’ Air Advice Analyzer, we’ll generate a report on your indoor air including details on temperature, humidity, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter. This test will sample your air over 5-7 days and help identify impurities in the air that may be negatively affecting those who live inside. With data in hand, you can work with an IAQ technician to look at purification, ventilation, and humidity control solutions.

Air Purification and Air Cleaning Systems

A whole-home air purification system mounts to your HVAC ductwork so all air must pass over it. These systems use a blast of positive and negatively-charged ions to “clean” the air of pollutants. When charged ions come in contact with pathogens, allergens and other particulates, they latch on and strip pollutants of the hydrogen they need to survive. Lacking hydrogen, pathogens die, fall, and become trapped in your HVAC’s filter.

HVAC Duct Cleaning

Myrtle Beach’s hot and humid climate coupled with its propensity for flooding and heavy rain make it ideal for mold growth. Sometimes, mold can enter your home’s HVAC ductwork, leading to spores circulating through your home and contaminating your indoor air. Cooper Mechanical Services offers full HVAC duct cleaning to remove these microscopic toxins. Once cleaned, our team makes sure your ductwork is properly sealed and balanced.


Clean and Service Twice a Year

With a Clean and Service agreement, a Cooper Mechanical Services’ professional will arrive and assess the specific needs of your heating and cooling units to ensure that they function properly. Cleanings and inspections occur ahead of Summer and Winter seasons, so your equipment is ready to go when it’s needed.

Proactive Maintenance Saves Money

A semi-annual cleaning and service is the best way to get the most out of your equipment. Regular check-ups keep HVAC units clean and in peak performance.
