It’s generally recommended that you have your home’s ducts treated with this service every two years.
What are the benefits of duct cleaning?
Over time, as your HVAC system is used season after season, contaminants like dust, mold and mildew can build up in your air duct system. These buildups can also cause unpleasant smells to permeate your home.
That’s not ideal for your health or home comfort.
The benefits of having your ducts cleaned means you can:
Does duct cleaning remove mold?
Mold is one of the nastier things that can build up in your air ducts, and a thorough cleaning can help remove it.
Mold can be particularly dangerous for people to breathe in and an infestation of this unfriendly fungus can grow worse if not treated; a duct cleaning solution from the pros at Furnasman will ensure that any mold in your air ducts is safely extracted.
Will duct cleaning help allergies?
Yes, duct cleaning can help with certain allergy symptoms you’re experiencing in your home.
Much of the dust and contaminants that build up in your air ducts can irritate allergy symptoms and make them worse.
Duct cleaning can reduce the level of these contaminants to help reduce allergy symptoms and allow you to breathe easier.
Will cleaning the ducts in my house make me sick?
The actual act of duct cleaning is unlikely to make you sick.
On the other hand, allowing contaminants to build up in your ducts over time, however, can cause health risks, as they have an adverse effect on the air you’re breathing indoors.
We do recommend you do not attempt to clean your home’s ducts yourself; this is a job best left to professionals with the right equipment.
Will duct cleaning help improve airflow/HVAC performance?
Yes: cleaning your ducts can help improve their airflow and the overall performance of your HVAC system.
While the primary concern with duct cleaning is to ensure the air that’s moving through them and into your home is free of dangerous contaminants and healthy to breathe, it can also help increase the quality of your heating & air conditioning system for maximized home comfort all year long.
How long will duct cleaning take?
Duct cleaning usually takes between 4 and 6 hours.
How long it takes exactly will vary depending on the size of your home, as larger homes have more ducts.
The length of time it takes will also depend on when your home’s ducts were last cleaned and how much debris needs to be removed.
How often should I have my ducts cleaned?
Furnasman recommends you have your ducts cleaned every two years.
A thorough duct cleaning will eliminate the buildup of debris and can remove potentially harmful contaminants like allergens and mold.
If you’re experiencing increased allergy symptoms or an unpleasant smell coming from your ducts, a duct cleaning could help.
Should I try to clean my own ducts?
No. We do not recommend you attempt to clean your home’s ducts yourself; this is a job best left to professionals with the right equipment.
“Our furnace was pretty much toast, I was advised by Hydro to replace it within the week. Kelly came to my home, took measurements, asked the right stuff and was so thorough in providing information and tips that I had absolutely no questions for him. He helped me to choose not only what we needed but what we could afford and filled out all the Hydro paperwork. Don and the other young man who came for the install were fantastic, they even swept up OUR mess from the floor! This team really made what could have been a nightmare turn out to be an easy and even pleasant experience. Thank you to the incredible team at Furnasman!”
“We had Furnasman install a new furnace for us a week ago and a small leak was detected by the inspector so Shaun from furnaceman came out to correct the problem. His friendly and very knowledgeable visit was extremely positive. He corrected the small problem very quickly and re-tested the entire gas line near the furnace for any other concerns. He answered without hesitation the few questions I had for him regarding our new unit. I will be asking for him personally when it comes time for an annual inspection and service.”
