How Often Should You Clean Your Furnace & Ducts?

Your routine furnace & duct cleaning cleaning will depend on your unique system setup. All components of your system are cleaned – including central air conditioning coils, Heating Recovery Ventilators, furnaces and hot and cold air ductwork. Learn More about our furnace cleaning process and furnace and duct cleaning pricing.

Here are some common ways to determine if you are due for a routine cleaning:

  1. Check your furnace sticker – if you’ve used us before, there will be a sticker on your furnace letting you know when you’re due for your next furnace & duct cleaning!
  2. If it has been longer than 2-3 years since your last cleaning.
  3. Check your filter – if you are checking your filter every month and notice more dust than usual, it may mean you need a cleaning.
  4. Is it dusty? If you notice a higher level of dust in your home than usual, you may be due for a cleaning.
  5. Do you have pets? In homes with pets, hair and dander can accumulate in your system making routine furnace and duct cleaning necessary. If you notice more hair and dust in the air than normal, you may need a cleaning.

Things that can influence how often you need a furnace & duct cleaning. 

Rule of thumb = time.  Most homes on average need a cleaning every 2-3 years but this could be shorter or longer depending on your unique situation and if you do regular maintenance.

Things that can increase your time between cleaning:

  1. If you live in a very low dust environment – most dust comes from outside of our homes, either from dry dirt in the air, or plant matter such as pollen. If you live in a damp area with low dust in the air, you may require cleaning less frequently.
  2. Good filtration – having a good filter and keeping it clean can help to remove more dust from the air and stop your furnace and ducts from accumulating dust. 
  3. Very clean home environment – homes with fewer people, no children or pets, and proactive measures to keep the home clean tend to have cleaner ducts and furnaces. 

Things that can decrease your time between cleanings:

  1. Pets who shed – hair is a huge part of what we take out of ductwork. If you have a lot of shedding pets, you will want to clean your ducts more frequently. 
  2. Living in a dusty area – if you live in an area with a higher amount of dust, such as a new neighbourhood where there is a lot of construction, or near farmers fields or dusty industrial areas, you may have a need for more frequent cleaning. 

What Our Customers Have To Say

A big shout out to Andrew and Aaron from Alberta Furnace Cleaning. My husband and I had recently renovated our home and were noticing a fine dust on everything that I couldn’t keep up with. Andrew and Aaron came in and cleaned the furnace, air conditioning unit and all the duct work. It was shocking to see what the found - construction debris, dog toys, tennis balls etc. They definitely have the equipment to thoroughly clean the mechanical and duct work. Both workers used care in removing vent covers, and cleaned all surfaces, properly replacing the grills when done. They were on time, efficient, polite and respectful of ourselves and our home. I could not be happier.
