The Difference Between Furnace Cleaning And Duct Cleaning

If you live in Calgary or Alberta in general you have heard of furnace and duct cleaning, but you may not know what is involved in the process, or how they differ from each other. Furnace cleaning refers to the yearly professional inspection and cleaning, your furnace requires to run as safely and efficiently as possible. Yearly maintenance helps your system's components last longer. This annual checkup doesn't just include cleaning, it also involves spotting and correcting malfunctions before they cause serious damage.As part of routine furnace maintenance, your furnace technician will:Clean the blower motor and make sure it's running right, and making no noiseMeasure your air flow

Test the gas pressure and check for leaks

Clean and inspect the heat exchanger and combustion chamber assembly

Check for loose wires and electrical connections

Test the thermostat and controls

Test for carbon monoxide gas leaks

Check your ducts for blockages and leaksHow Duct Cleaning Differs

Yearly furnace cleaning includes a basic duct inspection, but it doesn't include duct cleaning. Most duct work will stay perfectly clean for a couple years therefore not needing to be cleaned annually. Instead, the ducts should be thoroughly inspected, separately from routine maintenance, at least once every two years to decide whether or not they require cleaning. If you have pets or smokers in the home, consider duct cleaning every couple of years, but an average home can go three years without cleaning.Regularly check inside the accessible parts of your ductwork and schedule an inspection if you find moisture or patches of discoloration, which suggest mold growth, or evidence of pests.If your ducts do need cleaning, your technician will bring in a vacuum system that will be connected to your duct system. The air registers and vents will be cleaned first, then a hose will run through your ducts to remove debris and simultaneously suck it out. This method prevents dust and other debris from entering your rooms.If your furnace or duct system is due for a cleaning, please call Air Raid Furnace & Duct in your Calgary area.
