Why You Need to Get Your Furnace Cleaned Regularly

If you want to keep your home warm and comfortable during the colder months, it’s essential to keep your furnace in good working order. One of the best ways to ensure that your furnace operates efficiently and safely is to get it cleaned regularly. Let’s review why furnace cleaning is so important and how it can benefit you and your family.

Increased Energy Efficiency

When dirt, dust, and other debris build up in your furnace, it has to work harder to heat your home. This can result in higher energy bills, as your furnace has to consume more energy to produce the same amount of heat. A clean furnace, on the other hand, operates more efficiently, which can help you save money on your energy bills.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Your furnace circulates air throughout your home, which means that it also circulates any pollutants that are present in the air. When your furnace is dirty, it can spread allergens, dust mites, and other particles that can negatively impact indoor air quality. A clean furnace, however, will help to remove these pollutants and keep the air in your home clean and healthy.

Enhanced Safety

A dirty furnace can also pose a safety risk, as it can cause a fire if debris accumulates in the wrong place. By getting your furnace cleaned regularly, you can help to prevent this from happening and keep your family safe. Additionally, a clean furnace is less likely to break down or malfunction, which can also reduce the risk of fire.

Prolonged Furnace Life

When a furnace is dirty, it has to work harder to produce heat, which can put extra strain on the system and cause it to wear out faster. By getting your furnace cleaned regularly, you can help to extend its life and reduce the need for repairs or replacements.

So you can see why regular furnace cleaning is essential to ensure that your furnace operates efficiently, safely, and effectively. But how often is “regularly”? The short answer: every 2-3 years. But depending on where you live and who lives with you will make how often you need your furnace and ducts cleaned vary. If you have pets and/or kids, the dust, dirt and debris may build up faster than if you live alone.

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!Service: HVAC duct & vent cleaning
