Regular cleaning is an integral part of your furnace's maintenance. Dirt is its number-one enemy. A poorly maintained furnace can result in many harmful contaminants circulating throughout your home, including:
- household dust
- pet dander
- debris, pathogens
- dust mites
During the furnace cleaning the technician uses high-pressured air and a vacuum to clean the following components of the furnace unit:
Please note that a furnace cleaning is for the furnace unit only. It does not include the air ducts/vents connected to the furnace. Service is only a cleaning as we do NOT do inspections or repairs. As opposed to air duct cleaning, furnace cleaning focuses on the individual components of the furnace itself, not the associated ductwork.
Furnace not working? There is a difference between cleaning and repair, and if your furnace is not working, the diagnosis should come from a licensed HVAC repair company. The main aim of furnace cleaning is maintenance and indoor air quality.
Most experts agree that furnace cleaning should be performed at least once every two years, and as often as every year for some households, including those with multiple residents, pets, and family members with allergies or asthma. Regular furnace cleaning improves the efficiency of your heating system and helps to maintain indoor air quality. In addition to having your furnace cleaned regularly by one of our technicians, you should clean or replace your furnace filter at least every 3 months.
Furnace Vs. Boiler
Many people are unsure whether their home is heated by a furnace or a boiler. This is an important piece of information, as the two work in completely different ways and are often serviced by different technicians. The most fundamental difference is that a furnace uses heated air to provide warmth to your home, and a boiler uses heated water. The distribution system for a furnace is comprised of ductwork and vents, and the distribution system for a boiler is a network of pipes, through which heated water is pumped to either radiators, baseboard heaters, or radiant flooring. Do you have air vents from which hot air blows? You have a furnace. Does your home have radiators? You have a boiler. Please note that we do not service boilers.
