The Benefits of Furnace Duct Cleaning

Posted by Lisa Pixley

Your furnace depends on a network of sealed ducts to carry the heated air from its cabinet all the way to the vents while losing as little air pressure as possible. Because of the tight sealing along ductwork, it’s hard for the dust that starts to gather inside to escape; eventually, you’ll end up with contaminated ducts causing you numerous problems. To combat this problem, schedule regular cleaning for your furnace’s ducts. This is a job that requires professionals and special equipment to properly access the ductwork interior.

For expert furnace duct cleaning in the Twin Cities, MN, you should contact Alpha Air Corporation. We have NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) certified technicians and 30 years in the duct cleaning business.

How furnace duct cleaning benefits you:

  • Improved indoor air quality: The hidden places in your ducts will start to develop dust and dirt, as well as dander and hair that can trigger allergies. Other contaminants can start in ducts that will enter the air you breathe inside your home and cause an increase in health risks. Cleaner ducts mean higher quality air and improved health for you and your family.
  • Improved furnace performance: The forced air from a furnace’s blower needs to have as little resistance as possible to move efficiently along the ducts all the way to the vents. Dirt and dust layers will create more friction, which will in turn put more stress on the furnace. This will lead to your energy bills increasing as the furnace struggles to reach its normal performance level, and it will also cause the system to prematurely age.
  • Improved home cleanliness: The dust that gets blown out from a dirty system of ducts will not only damage the quality of the air you breathe, it will also spread throughout your home’s carpets and furnishings. With dirty ductwork, you can sweep and clean continuously and still have a dusty house.
