What is Furnace Cleaning?
here in Alberta, we tend to get the term Furnace Cleaning and duct cleaning mixed up, many people believe that Furnace Cleaning is duct cleaning but they are two different things that are sometimes offered in one package. When you call to get your furnace cleaned it should include all components of your furnace including the furnace blower, the furnace cabinet, the burner assembly, the heat exchanger, and most importantly if you have a newer furnace the condensing coil. Cleaning the coil on any HVAC system is always the most important job, it gets plugged up with dust over time which reduces the amount of airflow that can go through it. If too much dust and debris are allowed to build up on the coil it reduces the air flow to an amount that will cause mechanical problems and air flow problems.

What equipment is used during the process?
Professional furnace companies will typically have a truck-mounted system that includes high-pressure air and a very high volume of vacuum.
