To those who only think about their furnace when something goes wrong, the HVAC industry is an unsolved mystery. There are so many different systems and terms that it can quickly become overwhelming! For example, at Henry Mechanical in Windsor, we often hear customers confuse furnace cleaning and duct cleaning. Though they have some similarities, they are not interchangeable.
What Does a Duct Cleaning Involve?
While duct cleaning involves cleaning dust, debris, and pollutants from the ducts that carry warm air from your furnace into each room, furnace cleaning is a type of furnace tune up that removes contaminants from the individual components of the furnace. These include the blower motor, the combustion chamber, burners, fan, etc. These are typically cleaned with the combination of high-pressure air and an industrial vacuum. Some furnace parts, such as the evaporator coil, can require a more specialized cleaning for an additional cost.
Both services use air, suction, and agitators and contribute to energy efficiency and improved airflow and air quality. Both reduce the amount of debris and contaminants that get in the way of the smooth running of your HVAC system. For the most comprehensive system cleaning, we often perform both types of maintenance at the same time because it is highly likely that if one is dirty, the other is too.
