Have you been getting a complete furnace and duct cleaning?

A complete furnace and duct cleaning service should always include cleaning the blower. If the contractor did not complete a blower pull and clean, you did not receive a complete clean.

The blower wheel has blades that are specifically designed to move the air throughout your home. Any dirt on those blades will cause your blower motor to work harder. The harder the blower motor works the more amperage it draws which costs more to operate. Even when a small amount of dust accumulates on your blower wheel, it can greatly reduce your furnace’s efficiency. Another problem that arises from this dust accumulation is your heat exchanger runs at a higher temperature. This will ultimately decrease the lifespan of your furnace.

If a blower wheel gets really dirty, it is possible that your furnace and air conditioner may not operate at all. Your heat exchanger relies on cooler air moving across it to keep it from over-heating. As well, your air conditioner coil relies on warmer air to keep it from freezing. A dirty blower wheel can impair this air flow causing your system to potentially fail.

This is why at Full Throttle Furnace & Duct Cleaning Inc., we clean the blower wheel and housing each and every time and it is included in our pricing. We are one of the only furnace and duct cleaning companies that are trained and qualified to complete this task. Most other companies don’t bother taking the time to do this as it allows them to keep their costs lower.

Just another reason to make Full Throttle Furnace & Duct Cleaning Inc. your trusted furnace and duct cleaning Experts®.
