Alberta Furnace Cleaning was so great. They were super helpful and polite when I booked with them. They were able to get in sooner than I was initially quoted after I explained my concerns. They arrived on time, were super professional, and did a wonderful job. We will be using them from now on!

I was very impressed with everything the guys did. I would definitely refer them to anyone. The company really was great to deal with and answered all questions I had. My husband was even more impressed and he’s can be overly picky. They were also fast but efficient. 👍👍👍👍👍 out of 5

Sept 2021 - We contacted Alberta Furnace Cleaning once again for our duct, dryer vent and furnace cleaning. The crew arrived on time and were very friendly and courteous. Once again they wore covers over their shoes and used corner protectors on the walls so no damage was done in my house. We've always been satisfied with the work that is done and will definitely be using them again in the future.2018 - Very easy to set up an appointment that was convenient for me. Mark and Ron arrived on time and were courteous and friendly. The work to be done was explained beforehand and I was happy to see that they wore covers over their shoes and used wall and floor protectors where needed. This was my second time using Alberta Furnace Cleaning for my ducts and furnace and I'll definitely be calling them next time I need the service.

The team showed up within the time frame given. They were very friendly and helpful. In addition to the furnace and duct cleaning, I also had my dryer vent cleaned. Great job and quicker than I thought it would take.

Very responsive as soon as I called I received a quote and I was booked in quite fast once I chose to go ahead with them.The crew was exceptional, very mindful of floors walls etc. Used blankets and window access to run hoses as needed so they wouldn't mark walls or floors. I really appreciated that and did not have to ask. Secondly they were efficient and fast, and explained everything to me. As well as discussing any items that I did not need and/or anything that was additional to quote, before doing the work, so no surprises!! Only variances from quoted price was number of vents in my home and that was because I missed some when I counted. After completing job everything was cleaned up, including excess dust near vents. They also went through anything that they found and a few other items such as humidifier, as it required a new filter. I had no clue no one ever explained the unit to me before. They helped explain what it needed and where to get it! This was above and beyond their scope of work and I was very appreciative of the information!!!Their pricing was midline it was not the cheapest quote nor the highest. They were recommended to me and the quality and service was definitely worth every dollar!!!

We were having issues with air conditioning and our repairman said we needed our ducts cleaned ASAP. Alberta Furnace was able to come out first thing the next day. The call operator was friendly and made sure to walk me through the pricing so there was no surprises. Both reps showed up on time and were polite and courteous. They explained everything in great detail. They were careful with their long hoses to not scrape up the walls and gave advice to maintain our furnace and air conditioner ongoing. All in all it was an excellent experience! Would definitely book with them again and would recommend!

Andrew and his team provided courteous and friendly service. They showed up on time and clearly explained all of the work that they did. All fees were as expected from the quote with no unexpected costs. They were thorough and efficient. We had our ducts, AC coil, dryer vent and central vacuum system cleaned and are happy with the service. We would recommend and use them again.

I had a good visit! Used their service 2 years ago for furnace cleaning and dryer vent cleaning. Did a second cleaning with them just recently. Both times the men where very polite, informative and quick. I appreciate the call before hand to know when to expect them. Also during Covid they followed all appropriate health standards to make keep me and them safe. Thanks for a job well done!

Called about strange burning smell coming from vents, called AB Furnace, the two gentlemen were so professional, put my mind at ease and even repaired what the last furnace cleaners damaged! They educated me on maintenance and what & when to check for things. Cost was way below value, had a wonderful experience and booked them for my next cleaning. Outstanding service!

The two technicians (Andrew and Dylan) were very professional and worked quickly and efficiently! They both were very polite and were informative of how I should maintain my furnace and duct cleaning. I am very pleased with the work and will definitely recommend them to anyone. I will also continue to use this company for future problems and maintenance!

I had my ducts and vents cleaned in March 2021 and I was impressed by how thoughtful Richie was. As he cleaned the ducts, he made sure to not leave a mess when he went from room to room. When it came to the dryer duct, Richie even cleaned up the giant dust bunny that he pulled out, and this was outside! I would definitely be back for my next duct and vent cleaning with Alberta Furnace Cleaning! Thank you to both Xianglong and Richie!

They came early and did an amazing job cleaning all of our vents, making our dryer vent clean as a whistle and making our home safe and clean again! I had my 10 month old at home at time and they were so kind about making sure he was okay with the noise. Cannot thank them enough for their work! Get your services done by them everytime!

Called for furnace and vent cleaning on a Friday and the service was completed on a Monday morning. The technicians were on time, polite and efficient. It was -25 outside so it was appreciated that the service only took approximately 1 hour. Would definitely recommend and will be a repeat customer.

Fantastic service! Prompt, courteous, clean and very professional. The actual price was less than the original quote. If your looking for a great company, look no further.

We are very happy with the thorough cleaning of our 2 furnaces. They showed us new filter options that have a 15 year warranty that you can maintain by cleaning every 3 months easily with a hose, or in the sink. Rather than replacing cheap disposable filters every 3 months, we opted for these new cleanable ones and the air feels much cleaner. They capture the finer dust. My only complaint would be that the company could give a solid arrival time. They gave us a one and a half hour window the morning of, but it would be better if they could give us an exact arrival time. Here’s a pic of the filters we bought. Pricey at $189 each but we liked the 15 year warranty.

Two techs arrived for this work. First time using this company for this job for carpet cleaning two months ago and this job today. Really professional in introduction and interaction. I already had an estimate but they recommended cleaning of dryer vents. After more than 10yrs of never cleaning I knew it had it be done. They did a super excellent job. I was aware of all pricing and agreed to it before work commenced. All in all very satisfied. Will definitely use them again.

Andrew and Justin were timely, efficient, polite, professional and helpful. I have used This service for many years and this was the most impressive service I have seen. Andrew was helpful with his knowledge and suggested things I have never heard before. He took the time to explain things - things I have never heard of even though I have lived here for 14 years - these guys deserve a raise!! Wish I could request them next time!

Both technicians were very polite, on time and professional. Answered my questions in good detail. Prices for the services I requested were good and reasonable. Came into the house wearing clean uniforms and wore boot covers to walk around the house in. Left no mess whatsoever. The cleaning will make a big difference in my furnace and ac unit lifespan.Would reccomend their services to anyone! Thanks very much!

Service (including dryer vent cleaning) was professionally handled, in a timely way, with care taken to observe pandemic protocols. Everyone (office staff/dispatchers/service providers) was efficient, friendly, and I definitely recommend Alberta Furnace Cleaning.

Customer service/Phone operators were really warm and professional. The technicians were really nice. Came in and did the job very well, cleaned all of the vents and ducts. Heating system was old and probably was never cleaned before so there was a lot of black residue but the technician dude cleaned everything up. Would recommend their service.5 stars

Technicians were extremely helpful, professional and efficient. Will definitely be using Alberta Furnace and have already recommended to family to book their cleaning!
Andrew M and his colleague were very professional and efficient when they came to clean our furnace and ducts. They spread a big cloth over all our floor coverings to ensure they kept our house clean while they did what they were assigned to. We happened to have a bird's nest inside our dryer vent ? but they spent extensive time thoroughly emptying it all out to ensure our dryer will be able to properly circulate its air outside, and explained to us how to prevent this from happening again. They took before and after photos of our central vac system. They were both polite, respectful and knowledgeable. Thanks!

They were reasonably priced and had exceptional communication and customer service. When I needed to reschedule last-minute, they accommodated it and made it quick and easy. They called when they were on the way to give us a heads up, which was nice. During the appointment, the techs were polite and efficient. I would recommend using them and will likely book them again for our next furnace cleaning.

Andrew and Tic were absolutely exceptional, courteous, informative and considerate whilst carrying out the cleaning. 5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rated for their excellent service. Extremely happy with their service and will definitely use them again.

17:16 25 Jul 20
Mostly very good, but they did not tell me they needed a garbage bag, so just emptied one of mine. Also, had to request one of the men to put on mask to come close to me. They left everything very clean, I have used this company before and generally am pleased. They asked if I wanted some extra work and did it for a reasonable price. I wondered if when they cleaned the exhaust for the dryer there was something should have been done different as my first load in there came out with a HUGE amount of lint in the lint catcher, never had that before.

Hands down some of the best service we've received within any industry! *5 Stars All the Way!* ☺️ We've had our furnace, vents & A/C Coil cleaned by Alberta Furnace twice since moving into our home. They make the entire process extremely smooth & effortless. I scheduled with them via Facebook this time which was a breeze! They've always stayed true to quotes they've given us and their technicians are super professional. Can't recommend them enough!

Everything about this was GREAT !! Booking the service was so simple - followed by a phone call to confirm details and set the date for the next day ! I received a call in the morning to advise of the arrival time - Richie and Norsheady arrived exactly as scheduled - very nice gentlemen, so quick, quiet and efficient - the furnace and the dryer vent package is a good deal - the air in my house smells fresher already

The guys that came to the house were amazing. Very polite, professional and respectful. With everything going on they went through a covid protocol and I was very please with the service form them. The office staff was great when I booked my appointment. I was told they would call between 8 and 9 am to confirm the window they would be coming. I didn’t receive that call until 10:30 and when they called they were very short and the lady hung up on me while I was still talking. Not impressed as I had some questions, but the guys were able to assist me. It’s a good thing the guys were so amazing as they are what would bring me back to use this company.

I had my furnace cleaned beginning of May by Ha and Xianglong. They were very professional and very polite! They explained what they needed to do and the price of how much it will cost. It came to exactly what they quoted me and they did explain that it could go lower or higher. I would recommend them as they did a wonderful job, very polite, explained things. I am very happy with their service!!

I called and they were able to come the next day!

I was called ahead to confirm their window of arrival and feel like the air quality in my home is already better! Thank you!

I found the ad on Facebook that included all vents in the house. I prefer that type of inclusive pricing to one where it starts at $99 and you add more for each vent. So I booked it. As long as Alberta Furnace Cleaning has the all inclusive pricing, I will continue to use them. Also, the scheduling system worked great. I was able to get a Saturday appointment with no issues.

Wonderful experience with Alberta Furnace Cleaning. Guys showed up on time, ready to work. Very polite and professional. They got the job done well in a timely manner with very minimal mess. They even laid down mats so their shoes didn't get my floors dirty. Very impressed, would definitely use their services again.

I had my furnace cleaned this past weekend by Alberta Furnace. Not only did they respond quickly they gave me great price and had the job done in a timely manner. I had two great technicians (Lei and Andrew) that came and did an amazing job, as well as tell me about furnace care. They came with a great attitude and explaining the process as they went, allowing me the information about how things work. They followed up with a dryer vent cleaning (at a discount) and as well as a reusable filter for the furnace. (Which has been good so far).

We scheduled a full clean + dryer vent cleaning and everything was very professional! The lady who took my call and scheduled the booking was very friendly and had great customer service! The two gentlemen that came to do the cleaning were super friendly, respectful and very efficient. It did end up costing more than was quoted, only because we had way more vents than I even knew of! They were always transparent about that cost and that it might be more if they found more vents. We are very satisfied clients and would highly recommend their services. 🙂

Pros: The 2 technicians (Dillan & Edison) did a fantastic job. They were very thorough, and explained everything they were doing in detail. Throughout the appointment they offered various additional options/services that they were able to provide. Great job! Cons: I felt it was a little pricey. I knew the price before the actual appointment, but agreed to it because they were recommended by Furnace Solutions. However, the quality of work done was wonderful.

Service beyond expectation. The team arrived on time, they were efficient and very knowledgeable. Andrew and his partner (sorry forgot the name) were kind and true professionals. They saved our family from a huge fire hazard with our dryer vent being clogged. We had no idea. We look forward to having Alberta Furnace Cleaning back again. Keep up the good work!!

During every step of this process from booking, to confirming the appointments, to the techs showing up, this company has done amazing. Today I had Bendito and Mike as my technicians and they were quick, funny, informative, and knowledgeable. They genuinely cared about the work they were doing, keeping my home safe, ensuring that they kept me informed of the entire process, and were not afraid to let me follow them around to learn things. Both gentleman were happy to point out things they saw, or to watch for in future as well as make recommendations as to what I may want to look at in future. I was also impressed that your techs carried washable filters as this is something I have had a heck of a time finding for a reasonable price point. I will definitely use you again in future, and recommend to others.

Effective, Efficient, Cost Competitive: Have used AB Furnace Cleaning a number of times over they years. Easy to book the appointment. Notified us of window when they would arrive and did so.

The entire process from the estimate, booking the appointment, to the actual service itself has been hassle free. Communication has been 10/10. Everyone I spoke with on the phone was very pleasant & knowledgeable. The tech's Andrew & Ador were fantastic. Right on time, respectful of the house, very polite, & mindful of the cat & dog. Everything was explained up front, & I was kept well informed during the whole appointment. I will definitely have them back when it's time.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation of the professionalism that the service technician (Andrew) exhibited during the inspection of our furnace and the cleaning of our heating ducts. The entire service was completed in a timely fashion with careful attention to ensure no interruption of our ongoing activities at the time. The technician was eager to provide answers to any questions that came up and made sure we were aware of what was all involved in our service package. A very enjoyable and satisfying experience! Thanks!!

This was the first time I had the furnace cleaned at this home. Benito and Thuy took the time to explain the process and answer the numerous questions I had to ensure that the cleaning was going to be thorough. Benito explained why they used a whip agitator instead of a brush (so it can pass through elbows), and the different processes used in cleaning upstairs versus downstairs vents. After the cleaning, Benito reviewed the findings: Our vents were pretty clean, old humidifier should be cleaned or removed, removal of filthy washable filter. In addition, Benito and Thuy were both friendly and kind to my house. I will be requesting them next time!

20:53 19 Oct 19
Andrew and his work partner we’re so very nice, very courteous, hard working and we’re very sweet to my 2 year old son. Andrew answered all my questions and knew what he was talking about. They went out of their way to fix things and clean things that were not part of their job like cleaning the little dryer vent duct inside my dryer and screwed in the duct tubing that wasn’t fastened into my wall correctly.They do a call back quality check which I love, kept my house clean and had something over my front door to only let the tube come in so the cold didn’t come in. Will always go with Alberta Furnace Cleaning. Thank you guys!!

Furnace and Duct Cleaning

What Can You Expect With Alberta Furnace Cleaning?

  • Multi-Point System Check™. Thorough pre-check of system operation.
  • We Treat Your Home With Care. Drop sheets, moving blankets, corner guards and register covers are used as necessary.
  • Full System Clean, Not a Bypass Duct Cleaning. Furnace blower is removed and cleaned.
  • Dual Zone Cleaning. System is cleaned in “zones” using Roto-Whip™ safe cleaning method.
  • Thorough Duct Cleaning. 150-200 PSI Roto-Whip is used in hot air vents and cold air returns for a thorough, full-system clean. Roof vents (mostly in basements) are carefully airwashed using a wand, to ensure that they do not become damaged or disconnected.
  • Professional Finishing. Sealed access panels are created for convenient future access. The outside of your furnace is wiped down.
  • Final Touches. Furnace is tested for ignition and fan operation.

Before The Cleaning Begins.

After covering their shoes with a clean, new set of boot covers your Alberta Furnace Cleaning tech specialist will complete a thorough inspection of your system before the cleaning begins. Every home is unique and it is very important that your tech specialist examine your situation so they can proceed with the safest and best approach to your individual furnace cleaning and air duct cleaning requirements. Once the inspection is complete your Alberta Furnace Cleaning Tech specialist will carefully explain the work that will be performed before it is done.

Roto-Whip™ SystemSafe Cleaning

At Alberta Furnace Cleaning we use the Roto-Whip™ SystemSafe furnace cleaning and air duct cleaning method to deliver the direct surface contact cleaning benefits of old-style brush cleaning combined with the safety of modern pneumatic cleaning systems. Unlike conventional air-wand or brush cleaning, the Roto-Whip™ system penetrates deep into your duct system without the risk of damaging internal components or closing pre-set dampers and adversely affecting system airflow. Alberta Furnace Cleaning offers only one method of furnace cleaning to our customers because we do not believe in providing a service that is lower than our highest standards. Our only method is our best method, no extra charge!

Duct Cleaning vs Furnace Cleaning

HVAC Cleaning for your business or commercial needs.

Furnace Cleaning Process Video

Furnace Regular Maintenance

Furnace Regular Maintenance

Your furnace & ducts should be cleaned every 2 to 3 years. Factors that can impact your cleaning frequency include:

Where your home is located

  • Homes in dusty areas (near industrial parks, the city dump, farms, and construction) may have more dust and dirt in the air than average, which may mean you need to have your furnace & ducts cleaned more often.

A brand new home

  • Your furnace & ducts should be cleaned prior to you moving in. Check with your builder – most will have this done for you.
  • If your new home is in a new neighbourhood with a lot of construction, dirt & dust, your system may need to be cleaned again in as soon as a year.

Pets, smoke, allergies

  • These things can increase the dust & particles in the air or increase sensitivity to poor air quality.
  • If you find that your filter is getting very dirty every month when you check it, even if it’s been less than 2 years, we offer a free inspection to see if your system is in need of a cleaning with any dryer vent cleaning.

Your Furnace Filter

A clogged filter can block airflow and cause costly damage your furnace.

  • Check your furnace filter monthly & clean (permanent filters only) or change your filter every 1 to 3 months depending on level of soiling
  • Use the correct size of filter, and ensure your furnace filter fits securely – gaps or spaces reduce the filtration of your air and allow your furnace to get dirty more quickly.
  • If you have two or more furnaces, confirm you are using the right filter size for each – often homes with multiple furnaces will have a larger and smaller furnace with different filter sizes.

Having trouble finding the correct size of furnace filter for your furnace? We can help with standard and custom sized permanent and disposable filters and pre-filters – contact us.

Your Humidifier

  • Check humidifier for leaks every month when you check your furnace filter
  • Clean (permanent pads only) or replace humidifier pads before winter

Your HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilator)

  • Vacuum, wash & dry HRV filters every two months during heating season

Not sure if you have an HRV? It is a large rectangular metal box in your furnace room. Stale or “old” air passes through, and heat from that air is captured to heat incoming cold, fresh air. It also helps to control condensation. There are filters in your HRV on both the intake and exhaust sides of the system.

HRV

Air Conditioning

  • Clean dust & debris from outside air conditioning unit in the spring, to ensure that function is not compromised
  • Cover your outside air conditioning unit in the winter when it’s not being used

Furnace Tune Up

  • Get a licensed heating professional to check and ensure that your system is running safely & efficiently every year
  • If you have air conditioning, you should make sure that the company you call is licensed to handle air conditioning as well.
  • If you have a concern about any gas appliance, including your furnace and hot water tank, ATCO Gas offers safety inspections

How to Prepare For Your

Cleaning Appointment

One or two days prior to your appointment, we will telephone you to confirm all of your details, including your cleaning address and your order. If you have any questions before then, please feel free to telephone us or contact us.

Before We Arrive

1) Find Your Vents 

  • Please go through your home thoroughly and provide access to all of your vents – this includes the hot air vents (on the floor), and the cold air vents (on the wall). 
  • Please check behind and move furniture if necessary to allow access to all vents. We will need access to every register in your home including those in bedrooms, bathrooms and closets. 
  • At this time you can also do a quick count (don’t forget your basement roof vents) to come up with an estimate of your total vents. Remember that all vents, including hot, cold and those in the basement must be cleaned. Vents beyond the 10 in the package are $12.75 each.

2) Clear Around Vents & Furnace

  • Please move all lamps, plants and breakables in the immediate vicinity of your vents. 
  • Furnace Room – please ensure that nothing is stored within 4 feet of your furnace and hot water tank.
  • Your furnace must be fully accessible for our cleaning with several feet clear in front – if you are not sure about the accessibility of your furnace, please let us know when we telephone to confirm your appointment.

3) Check for Asbestos (Homes Over 30 Years Old)

  • If you suspect that your home’s heating system may have asbestos tape or insulation, please go to our Asbestos FAQ.

Day of Cleaning

1) Time

  • Your appointment will be between 8 AM & 5 PM. We will telephone you by 10:30 AM with your technicians arrival time.

2) Notice/Reminder

  • If you need notice to get home, please let us know in advance and we can call when we are 30 minutes away to let you get home. 

3) Parking

  • Please ensure there is legal, paved parking available within 30 feet of the entrance of your home. 

4) Pets

  • Our equipment is loud and alarming for your furry friends, and the door will be partially open throughout the cleaning.
  • Please plan to have a secure place for your pets for the duration of the cleaning.

5) Payment 

  • We accept Debit, Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Asbestos FAQ

Asbestos FAQ

Q: How can I tell if my home has asbestos?

A: Asbestos was used in buildings from the 1950’s to the 1970’s. If your home was constructed during that time, it is possible that asbestos has been used in insulating or in insulative tape. You can look online for more information about how to identify asbestos in your home if you suspect it may be present.

Q: You cleaned my system before and did not have concerns, why can you not clean it now?

A: Alberta Furnace Cleaning is committed to the health and safety of our customers and staff. As a part of this commitment, we are undergoing COR certification, which is an intensive, safety focused certification program. In going through this process, asbestos has been identified as a health and safety concern, and we have recently developed a policy to properly manage this concern.

Q: Why can’t you just remove asbestos tape, or cover it up?

A: Asbestos must be properly contained and/or disposed of according to government regulations. Our staff are not qualified asbestos abatement and removal personnel, and therefore cannot do this for you.

Q: How could cleaning my system with asbestos tape or insulation be a health concern?

A: Asbestos becomes dangerous when it becomes friable (easily crumbles and releases fibers). Due to the aging of asbestos building materials, there is a high possibility that this could happen when our equipment puts pressure on your heating system. Due to this possibility and for your health and safety, we have a zero tolerance policy for asbestos.

Q: What should I do once Alberta Furnace Cleaning has informed me that asbestos is suspected?

A: We do not have a referral for an abatement company, but we recommend you search out a reputable, qualified company to assess your home – they will be found under the term “asbestos abatement”. Once the concerned area has been investigated and/or the asbestos removed, go online or call us to schedule your furnace and duct cleaning service. At the time of booking, please email/fax us the official asbestos documentation.

  • Final Touches. Furnace is tested for ignition and fan operation.

Before The Cleaning Begins.

After covering their shoes with a clean, new set of boot covers your Alberta Furnace Cleaning tech specialist will complete a thorough inspection of your system before the cleaning begins. Every home is unique and it is very important that your tech specialist examine your situation so they can proceed with the safest and best approach to your individual furnace cleaning and air duct cleaning requirements. Once the inspection is complete your Alberta Furnace Cleaning Tech specialist will carefully explain the work that will be performed before it is done.

Roto-Whip™ SystemSafe Cleaning

At Alberta Furnace Cleaning we use the Roto-Whip™ SystemSafe furnace cleaning and air duct cleaning method to deliver the direct surface contact cleaning benefits of old-style brush cleaning combined with the safety of modern pneumatic cleaning systems. Unlike conventional air-wand or brush cleaning, the Roto-Whip™ system penetrates deep into your duct system without the risk of damaging internal components or closing pre-set dampers and adversely affecting system airflow. Alberta Furnace Cleaning offers only one method of furnace cleaning to our customers because we do not believe in providing a service that is lower than our highest standards. Our only method is our best method, no extra charge!

Duct Cleaning vs Furnace Cleaning

HVAC Cleaning for your business or commercial needs.

Furnace Regular Maintenance

Furnace Regular Maintenance

Your furnace & ducts should be cleaned every 2 to 3 years. Factors that can impact your cleaning frequency include:

Where your home is located

  • Homes in dusty areas (near industrial parks, the city dump, farms, and construction) may have more dust and dirt in the air than average, which may mean you need to have your furnace & ducts cleaned more often.

A brand new home

  • Your furnace & ducts should be cleaned prior to you moving in. Check with your builder – most will have this done for you.
  • If your new home is in a new neighbourhood with a lot of construction, dirt & dust, your system may need to be cleaned again in as soon as a year.

Pets, smoke, allergies

  • These things can increase the dust & particles in the air or increase sensitivity to poor air quality.
  • If you find that your filter is getting very dirty every month when you check it, even if it’s been less than 2 years, we offer a free inspection to see if your system is in need of a cleaning with any dryer vent cleaning.

Your Furnace Filter

A clogged filter can block airflow and cause costly damage your furnace.

  • Check your furnace filter monthly & clean (permanent filters only) or change your filter every 1 to 3 months depending on level of soiling
  • Use the correct size of filter, and ensure your furnace filter fits securely – gaps or spaces reduce the filtration of your air and allow your furnace to get dirty more quickly.
  • If you have two or more furnaces, confirm you are using the right filter size for each – often homes with multiple furnaces will have a larger and smaller furnace with different filter sizes.

Having trouble finding the correct size of furnace filter for your furnace? We can help with standard and custom sized permanent and disposable filters and pre-filters – contact us.

Your Humidifier

  • Check humidifier for leaks every month when you check your furnace filter
  • Clean (permanent pads only) or replace humidifier pads before winter

Your HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilator)

  • Vacuum, wash & dry HRV filters every two months during heating season

Not sure if you have an HRV? It is a large rectangular metal box in your furnace room. Stale or “old” air passes through, and heat from that air is captured to heat incoming cold, fresh air. It also helps to control condensation. There are filters in your HRV on both the intake and exhaust sides of the system.

HRV

Air Conditioning

  • Clean dust & debris from outside air conditioning unit in the spring, to ensure that function is not compromised
  • Cover your outside air conditioning unit in the winter when it’s not being used

Furnace Tune Up

  • Get a licensed heating professional to check and ensure that your system is running safely & efficiently every year
  • If you have air conditioning, you should make sure that the company you call is licensed to handle air conditioning as well.
  • If you have a concern about any gas appliance, including your furnace and hot water tank, ATCO Gas offers safety inspections

Asbestos FAQ

Asbestos FAQ

Q: How can I tell if my home has asbestos?

A: Asbestos was used in buildings from the 1950’s to the 1970’s. If your home was constructed during that time, it is possible that asbestos has been used in insulating or in insulative tape. You can look online for more information about how to identify asbestos in your home if you suspect it may be present.

Q: You cleaned my system before and did not have concerns, why can you not clean it now?

A: Alberta Furnace Cleaning is committed to the health and safety of our customers and staff. As a part of this commitment, we are undergoing COR certification, which is an intensive, safety focused certification program. In going through this process, asbestos has been identified as a health and safety concern, and we have recently developed a policy to properly manage this concern.

Q: Why can’t you just remove asbestos tape, or cover it up?

A: Asbestos must be properly contained and/or disposed of according to government regulations. Our staff are not qualified asbestos abatement and removal personnel, and therefore cannot do this for you.

Q: How could cleaning my system with asbestos tape or insulation be a health concern?

A: Asbestos becomes dangerous when it becomes friable (easily crumbles and releases fibers). Due to the aging of asbestos building materials, there is a high possibility that this could happen when our equipment puts pressure on your heating system. Due to this possibility and for your health and safety, we have a zero tolerance policy for asbestos.

Q: What should I do once Alberta Furnace Cleaning has informed me that asbestos is suspected?

A: We do not have a referral for an abatement company, but we recommend you search out a reputable, qualified company to assess your home – they will be found under the term “asbestos abatement”. Once the concerned area has been investigated and/or the asbestos removed, go online or call us to schedule your furnace and duct cleaning service. At the time of booking, please email/fax us the official asbestos documentation.
