Most people have a strict maintenance schedule that they abide by in order to keep their home clean and keep their property maintained.
However, despite the utmost care, they may ignore to take care of one important thing. And that is the furnace.
If you have got a furnace, it should be part of your regular maintenance. Furnace cleaning is essential all year round, but it is particularly important before the winter.
Although your furnace works to heat your house, it ends up taking on a lot of troublesome particles.
An average furnace is a magnet for dust, dirt, and other microscopic particles and debris. If you don't keep your furnace clean, you can spread harmful debris around your home.
This can cause a number of health issues. You may find yourself more prone to colds and other viruses and germs.
Microscopic residues can easily cause inflammation of the lungs that are already sensitive to the environment. Moreover, dust, dirt, or debris can easily cause asthma or allergy attack.
Unclean furnace generally reduces indoor air quality, and poor indoor air quality can harm you even if you have no allergies or other health problems.
Apart from health problems, neglecting furnace cleaning may have an impact on its performance. If it's not cleaned properly, you can find that your furnace doesn't heat your home evenly or as effectively as it did in the past.
Now that you know it is important to clean the furnace, you are probably curious about the best times to clean the furnace.
Unlike other parts of your house, your furnace does not require weekly or monthly cleaning. The best time to clean your furnace is before and after the winter.
To keep your furnace in good working order, it's necessary to have it cleaned regularly.
National average furnace cleaning costs range from $60 to $80, although prices may vary greatly depending on where you live in the country and what your furnace maintenance includes.
Every HVAC company may have different rates for different levels of furnace maintenance.
However, note that residential furnace cleaning costs less than commercial. While you might pay $20 to $40 per vent for residential work, commercial projects come in at least 30% higher and at least $35 to $50 per hour.
Since businesses vary, you will need to get a quote to know exactly how much you will have to pay.
Commercial projects almost always have custom some ductwork. So they typically are much larger and harder to clean than residential ducts.
Therefore, they have much larger furnaces, blowers, and AC units that increases the furnace cleaning costs.
