Furnace Cleaning FAQs


How often should I clean my furnace?

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends having your furnace and air ducts cleaned every 12 to 18 months.

However, if your family has a pet or includes someone who smokes or has a respiratory condition such as allergies or asthma, a more frequent cleaning schedule is recommended.

How do I know if my air ducts need to be cleaned?

Although you should have your furnace cleaned every 12 to 18 months, certain signs can mean a cleaning is needed now. It might be time to call AmSteam If you’re asking yourself any of the following questions: 

Why is there so much dust in my house?

Does dust seem to return soon after you clean? Does it seem like despite your best efforts, you can’t seem to keep the surfaces in your home dust-free?

If your home is more dusty than normal, it could be time to book an air duct and furnace cleaning.

How do I get rid of dust in my house after remodeling?


Updating your home is an exciting process, but the dust left behind by it sure isn’t.

If you’re recently renovated, industry experts recommend having your furnace and air ducts cleaned following the project.

Why is my electricity bill so high?

An extremely dirty furnace will have to run longer than a clean furnace to heat your home resulting in a higher energy bill than normal. This is because dirty coils and filters can restrict air flow. 

Ideally, industry experts recommend changing your home’s furnace filter every 3 months.

However, factors such as pet dander, smoking in your home and recent renovation projects may require that your furnace filter be changed more often.

Why Is my furnace only blowing cold air?

A dirty filter can cause your furnace to overheat by blocking air flow. When this happens a safety feature known as the limit switch will turn the furnace burners off and keep the blower active to cool the furnace down.

If you’re experiencing this issue It might be time to change the filters. Our furnace cleaning experts replace your filters during every cleaning!
