Making Customers Happy Since 1981

What is Furnace Cleaning?

“Furnace cleaning” refers to the cleaning of your entire heating system, which includes duct cleaning, furnace cleaning, and, if you have them, cleaning of your air conditioning coils, and heating recovery ventilator. In many places this same exact service is referred to as “duct cleaning”.

Details Matter

Taking care to protect your home.

Furnace Cleaning – Part 1

There’s a lot of wires there, don’t want an amateur messing with that!

Furnace Cleaning – Part 2

This is your furnace fan, also known as a blower. We take it out and clean it.


We will check your filter, and replace (standard sizes) with a high quality Merv 8 pleated 90 day filter. Read More.

Things That Can Go Wrong

We admit it. Sometimes things aren’t quite as simple as that first slideshow made it look.


We need to park within about 30 feet of the front door. Not all homes have parking that is this simple. Read More.

Furnace Doesn’t Work After Cleaning

Sometimes things happen. We want to help you fix it ASAP. Read More.


Older homes sometimes have asbestos, which is a bad thing to disturb. Find out what we can do. Read More.

Finished Basement Access Challenges

If your basement is fully finished, and your ductwork is inaccessible, we might have trouble fully cleaning. Read More.

Poor Access to Furnace or Vents

Furnace rooms are sometimes also tight spaces or storage rooms, which can make it hard to do what we need to do. Read More.

Furnace Not Working When We Arrive

We can’t clean it if it’s broken because we don’t want to break it more. Read More.

  • 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 technician will complete a thorough inspection of your system before the cleaning begins. Every home is unique and it is very important that your technician examine your situation so they can proceed with the safest and best approach to your individual furnace and air duct cleaning requirements. Once the inspection is complete your technician 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. This special method delivers 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!

What Our Customers Have to Say

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.Service: HVAC duct & vent cleaning

I arranged for AB Furnace to clean my furnace, ducts and vents. They arrived on time and performed this service very well. An issue with the furnace occurred a short time after they left and they returned before end of day and I was provided the same professional service to address the issue. Thank you!

- Sal

Courteous and nice. Communicated well the day of, with a 2 hour window and then a 30 minute heads up. Covered the floor and door jam where the big hoses were placed. You of course have to do your own touch up from some of the dust that occurs simply from the process, which is completely what we expected, they left my house in a condition I was happy with. They offered us some upsells but were not pushy. This is our third time using this company and we would recommend them.Service: HVAC duct & vent cleaning

Alberta Furnace cleaning - cleaned our heating ducts and dryer vent in November of 2021.They were on time and very professional ,Well dressed.. even had company shirts and ties on under their coveralls.They did a very good job.... i had other companies clean the ducts before but nothing like Alberta Furnace completed... i was pleasantly surprised how all the ducts were cleaned and the how efficient and particular they were, getting into all corners and replaced any rubber grommets that they used during the cleaning process.They did a extensive cleaning of the A/C coil and furnace.They cleaned up after themselves... you could not even tell that they were here.I will be using this company in the future for furnace and duct cleaning and clothes dryer vent cleaning.I would highly recommend using them for your duct cleaning.You will not be disappointed.A.

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!Service: Heating system maintenance
