THE FILTH OF DIRTY DUCTS

Your HVAC system pushes a lot of air through your home’s ducts daily. Even with clean and well-maintained filters, contaminants travel through the system and accumulate over time. Some of the nasty stuff that can build up in your ductwork includes:

  • Mould and mildew

  • Dirt

  • Debris

  • Lint

  • Pet dander

  • Germs

  • Tobacco smoke particles

Rodents and insects — which can carry disease — can also move into your ducts, resulting in a potentially dangerous and harmful infestation.

DUCT CLEANING PROCESS

Our highly trained team uses state-of-the-art equipment to eliminate the filth and debris that builds up in the furthest corners of your ducts. Here’s what we do:

 

  • Inspection and assessment. First, our team inspects your HVAC system thoroughly, noting any signs of dust, debris, allergens or contaminants.

 

  • Equipment setup. Then, our team sets up powerful cleaning tools designed for duct cleaning, ensuring a thorough and efficient process.

 

  • Dust and debris removal. Our team employs advanced techniques to eliminate accumulated dust, debris, mould and allergens from your ductwork.
     

  • Disinfect and deodorize. Once the ducts are clean, we apply disinfectant spray to kill any remaining bacteria and viruses and deodorize the vents to help keep them smelling fresh.

BENEFITS OF CLEANING YOUR DUCTS

Professional duct cleaning services come with many benefits, including:

 

  • Improved indoor air quality. Say goodbye to airborne particles and allergens, and say hello to a cleaner, healthier living and working environment.

 

  • Enhanced energy efficiency. Clean ducts allow your HVAC system to operate more efficiently, reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills.

 

  • Extended equipment lifespan. Regular duct cleaning helps prevent unnecessary strain on your HVAC system, extending its lifespan and reducing the need for costly repairs.

DRYER VENT CLEANING

We also clean dryer vents as part of our duct cleaning services. Lint build-up due to clogged dryer vent hoses can catch fire and severely damage your home. In fact, there are dozens of dryer vent fires in homes across Canada every year. Your dryer vents should be cleaned at least once a year.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

  • How often should I service my boiler?
    A minimum of once a year is recommended. Heating systems come on an average of 3-8 times per hour during the heating season, these numbers can change dramatically in different style of homes and with different thermostats, but this is a rule of thumb in our industry. There is a lot of wear and tear on the appliance and setting can go out of calibration. Also, it is a requirement by most manufacturers and home insurance companies.
  • Can I add new zones to my existing boiler heating system?
    It depends if the btu output of the radiators has reached the maximum btu output the boiler can support. Having a professional to come out and calculate is your best bet.
  • How will I know if the boiler I select will work properly for my home?
    Each room will have a radiator and every radiator has a specific btu output . We calculate the total of the radiator btu outputs, match that with a heat loss/heat gain calculation for the home and that is how we size a boiler system for your home.
  • How does a boiler work to heat my home?
    A boiler is a device that heats water and then distributes the hot water throughout your home to warm the indoor air. There are two main types of boilers: hot water boilers and steam boilers. Hot water boilers heat water to a temperature of about 82 C. The hot water is then circulated through a system of pipes and radiators throughout the home. The radiators give off heat to the surrounding air, which warms the home. Steam boilers heat water to a temperature of about 100 C, which is the boiling point of water. The steam is then distributed through a system of pipes and radiators throughout the home. The steam condenses back to water on the radiators, which gives off heat to the surrounding air, warming the home. In both hot water and steam boilers, the water in the pipes cools and returns to the boiler after heating the interior spaces. The water is then reheated and recirculated throughout the home. Some boiler models also double as a water heater, eliminating the need for a separate water heater unit. The efficiency of a boiler is measured by its Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The AFUE rating is a percentage of the fuel that’s used to heat the water that heats the home. The higher the AFUE rating, the more efficient the boiler. Boilers with medium levels of efficiency have ratings of 90 to 93 per cent.
  • What is the average lifespan of a residential boiler?
    The typical residential boiler can last between 15 and 20 years. You can find the year your boiler was manufactured by checking the unit’s rating plate. You can also call the manufacturer and give them the unit’s serial number to find out how old your boiler is. If your boiler unit is more than 15 years old, you should consider replacing it with a new boiler, high-efficiency gas furnace or heat pump.
  • Are there any government rebates available for my boiler upgrade?
    Unfortunately, Ontario homeowners in the Tri-Cities area wanting to invest in a new boiler system for their homes aren’t eligible for rebates under the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) program. Heat pumps are the only home heating system covered under HER+, whereby homeowners can get more than $10,000 in rebates on a heat pump installation. This program combines the Enbridge Gas rebate program and the Canada Greener Homes Grant.
