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.

The two technicians, Norshaedy and Richie, were friendly and evidently well experienced, performing the work with admirable alacrity. I will not fault them for failing to maintain the company's officially stated 2m distance (Covid-19 precautions) as I also found this objective difficult to maintain under furnace-room conditions. In short, I will be happy to use and recommend the services of AFC in future.Services: HVAC duct & vent cleaning, A/C system maintenance

Very happy with the service that I received. The technicians took their time and explained what they were doing, they showed me how dirty the previous owners had left the the system.It certainly hurts the cheque book at the time, but you will notice a big different just in the air flow and how easy it is to breathe.My only complaint is that at the beginning I would have liked a little bit of communication between which rooms they would start with as there was a bit of a scare thinking a cat had snuck out during. My suggestion would be if they had worked with me to tell me they would start with a bedroom and then I could have locked them in there afterwards.All in all it was great work and well needed.Services: HVAC system maintenance, HVAC duct & vent cleaning, A/C system maintenance
