Air Ducts and Vents and Returns, Oh My!

All this stuff is “duct cleaning”

Cleaning Cold Air Returns

The big vents on your walls – they pull air from your home down to the furnace to be re-heated.

Yucky yuck yuck hair.

Inside a cold air return, mmmmmmm.


The little vents connect to big ductwork that connects to the furnace. This is what it looks like inside.

Covering Warm Air Vents

We cover them to help create a seal for better suction.

Cleaning Warm Air Vents

We use a long airline and the RotoWhip to knock dust and debris (and toys) loose and send them down to the vacuum hose in the basement.

Dirty Dusty Vent

You don’t need to clean these every year, but probably once every couple years is a good plan.

Access Hole for Vacuum

We cut one on the cold air side and one on the hot air side.

Big Vacuum

We connect this to the main ductwork and suck all the stuff out that the whip knocks loose from the vents.

Air Duct Cleaning

Air duct cleaning makes up a large part of what many people in Alberta call furnace cleaning. A typical forced air heating system in Alberta includes a furnace and air ducts. The furnace heats the air and uses a fan to push it through air ducts throughout the home for distribution. In some cases, heating may be provided by a boiler or geothermal heat pumps. As long as air is heated with a heat exchanger and pushed through the home through ducts or vents, we can clean your system.

What about the cold air?

If air conditioning is present, the same furnace fan and air ducts will be used to push cool air throughout the home in warmer months. A thorough HVAC system clean will take care of both hot and cold air duct cleaning as well as cleaning other components including your furnace, air conditioning coils, and Heating Recovery Ventilator (HRV – present in many new homes).

Is Duct Cleaning Necessary?

There are a variety of factors that influence the need for air duct cleaning in a residential HVAC system.


A large part of keeping your air ducts clean is ensuring that you are checking and changing your filter (or cleaning it, if you have a permanent filter) on a regular basis. Having a clean air filter prevents dust and debris from getting into your furnace and then being blown through your air ducts, keeping your air ducts cleaner longer. In addition, a very dirty furnace filter can restrict air flow to your furnace, causing your furnace to work harder to push air into your home, and potentially resulting in damage to furnace components.

Dust & Debris Going in Your Air Ducts

The furnace filter cannot prevent all soiling in your air ducts. Things that can cause your air ducts to need cleaning more frequently include renovations,  the presence of shedding pets in the home, or living in an area where there is a higher than usual amount of excess dust in the air. In areas where there is a lot of construction going on, near dirt fields or landfills, your furnace and air ducts may need cleaning more frequently. Dust, debris, pet hair, food crumbs, and toys may also enter the ducts through floor vents, and need to be removed through air duct cleaning.

Renovations & New Home Construction

After doing home renovations or the construction of a new home, air ducts most likely need cleaning. Construction results in more dust and debris than normal in the air and throughout the home, which can often make its way into your air duct system. New homes should have furnace and air duct cleaning done before you move in. Home renovation projects, especially those involving drywall or major construction should have air duct cleaning done once the major components of the renovations are completed.

Alberta Furnace Cleaning Reviews

Joseph and his partner cleaned my furnace and dryer vent with absolutely no issues! They were efficient and very clean, and so friendly! I am so glad I went with Alberta Furnace as they were professional and so kind. Would highly recommend them to anyone :)

Recently had my furnace cleaning done. The fellas were great! They called ahead of time so I could put the pup outside, they were polite and quick. When they came inside they wore protective booties so they kept the floors clean. They also fixed my dryer lint trap when cleaning out the dryer!! It was missing a screw so the lint was going where it wasn’t supposed to. They also let me know that having both furnace and a/c, my filters should be changed 2x a year - not something I was ever told by furnace install company who “services” my furnace on a paid plan! So Alberta Furnace probably saved me a lot of money and headache down the road. 10/10 would definitely recommend this company and crew. Will definitely use them again.
