When Should You Have Your Furnace and Air Ducts Cleaned?

One question we are asked regularly is “how do I know when it’s time to have my ducts cleaned?” Here are some signs you’re due for a furnace and duct cleaning service:

How It Works: Furnace and Duct Cleaning


Prepare the Area

After switching off power to the area, we remove the front panels, de-wire the furnace, and remove the blower. (Note that if the blower cannot be removed, then we cannot clean the furnace!)

Next, we cut a 10″ hole just above the furnace, or if there are A/C coils, the hole gets cut just above the coils. We do this because the heat exchanger or the A/C coils get covered with a filter to catch any debris or toys that fall in.

It also separates the cleaning process. We clean the hot air vents first and the return air vents and ductwork second.


Clean the Hot Air Ductwork

While the vacuum pulls air throughout the hot air ductwork, we then proceed to each vent in the home.

We attach a steel-holed 1″ ball to the end of a 50′ line and push it down each vent. After we retrieve the ball, we add another cleaning attachment, which is a ball with three whips attached to the end of it.

We send that down to get everything inside the lines moved downward and pushed into the main ductwork in the basement.


Clean the Return Air Ductwork

Once all the hot air vents are complete, we remove the vacuum hose from the hole and place it inside the bottom of the furnace.

We then position a tarp to seal off the front of the furnace and use a second tarp on top of the filter, which is located on the heat exchanger or A/C coils.

Next, we go to each return air grate and use a wand to blow the dust off the grate, into the vent, and down towards the furnace.

Once complete, we retrieve the ball with the three whips and push it down each vent to ensure all dust is gone and pushed down into the main ductwork.


Final Cleaning of Ductwork

Next, we go back into the basement and send a clear 1/4″ line down the main return air ducting that acts like a snake. As it goes down, it’s pushing any dust or debris toward the vacuum.

Once that is done, we send a stiff 5′ rod with a ball and larger whips on the end down the ductwork to the end and slowly back out. These whips clean the sides and upper part of the ductwork, ensuring a nice, thoroughly clean job.

Lastly, we ensure the ductwork is free of debris by sending a clear line down once more. We duplicate this process when we switch back to the main hot air ductwork.


Cleaning the Inside of the Furnace

Once all duct lines are clean, we remove the furnace filter and clean the inside of the furnace along with the heat exchanger and secondary coils.

Removing the blower gives us full access to its moving parts, allowing us to clean it completely.

Once it’s free of dust and wiped down with a clean rag, it’s time to assemble everything back to its original state. The last thing I do is turn the power and heat back on so we can make sure everything is running perfectly.

Yes, cleaning your furnace removes dirt and debris that can hinder its efficiency, leading to improved performance and potentially lower energy bills.

Yes, a dirty furnace can negatively impact indoor air quality by circulating dust, allergens, and pollutants. Regularly cleaning your furnace helps to reduce respiratory issues and allergies.

Signs that your furnace needs cleaning include reduced heating efficiency, uneven heating, strange noises during operation, increased energy bills, and visible dirt or debris around the furnace area. Regular maintenance can also prevent potential issues before they arise.

Duct cleaning frequency depends on factors such as location, usage, and indoor air quality. In general, we recommend that you clean your ducts every 1 to 2 years, depending on where you live, whether you have allergies, your overall health, and other environmental factors.

You’ll know it’s time to have your air ducts clean when you start to notice the need for more frequent dusting, you experience musty odours when your HVAC system is running, or you have increased allergies or respiratory issues.
