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”.

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

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.

Booking was easy and convenient. Customer service reps Ashley and Anna both helped me during the course of the transaction and I would both give them 5 stars. There was a little problem with my service that leads me to give it 4 stars, and although the situation was mostly remedied, I feel like it's fair to take this into consideration for the rating.

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 :)

- Kristyn Mahoney

I booked with Alberta Furnace Cleaning because they sent me a coupon in my email. When I went to book, I was able to schedule the appointment for a day and time that worked for me and on short notice. Although the work vehicle looks like it could use a refresh, Arnold and Miroslav were excellent. Arnold ensured that he told me what was going on and gave me tips for how to maintain my furnace and dryer vent between cleanings. They were both very polite, professional and efficient. I would happily have them back again!
