Duct and Vent Cleaning Services
Over 25% of your HVAC systems heating or cooling energy is wasted according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. A clean air duct and HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature resulting in less energy being used and leads to improved cost-effectiveness.
How a furnace works
Older gas furnaces use a pilot light to ignite the burners, which is a constant burning flame; modern furnaces use an electronic igniter to ignite the burners. The burners are where the fuel mixes with air to create combustion. The heat exchanger, located above the combustion chamber and the fan motor, blows the warmed air through the supply plenum to the supply registers.
Furnace Cleaning Benefits
Having regular furnace maintenance is key to a safe and trouble-free economical system.
When you don’t clean your furnace, dirt and debris affects all the components of the furnace including the air duct system. A clean and well- maintained furnace will maximize energy efficiency and can prevent many of the expensive no-heat emergency service calls.
Additionally, a clean gas furnace produces the least amount of carbon monoxide while a dirty furnace does the opposite. Excessive carbon monoxide in your home causes people to become confused, disoriented and even cause death death.
Furnace cleaning consists of the thorough cleaning of the blower chamber, blower motor, burners, combustion chamber, heat exchanger, pilot light, return duct and supply plenum. It also requires checking the evaporator coil airflow, flame igniter, flame sensor and wiring connections.
