Frequently Asked Questions

You should have your ducts cleaned to improve your indoor air quality. Clean ducts reduce the number of contaminants circulating around your home, including dust, debris, and mold. Cleaner ducts mean cleaner air and a duct cleaning can even help reduce allergy symptoms and eliminate odour.

Your ducts need to be cleaned at least every 5 years. Regular cleaning will help keep your home’s air clean by preventing contaminants from building up in your ducts. Duct cleaning also helps reduce allergy symptoms and odours caused by mold and mildew located in your ducts.

How much time your duct cleaning takes with vary depending on how big your home is. Most homes take between 4 to 6 hours, with larger homes taking closer to 6 hours. Larger homes have larger duct systems, meaning they take more time to clean. If it’s been a long time since your last cleaning, that could also increase the time required as more debris will need to be removed.

Duct cleaning’s cost will vary based on the size of your home, but it typically costs about $600. Bigger homes have more ducts, meaning they take longer to clean, increasing the cost. Call us to book a free in-home assessment for a more detailed estimate based on your home.

You don’t need to be home during the cleaning, but if you can be there are some benefits. If you’re home, we can let you know immediately if there are any issues with your duct system. Issues we’ve found before include mold and asbestos, and we like to let you know about those types of things as soon as possible.

Why Choose Us?


No Loopholes™

We aren’t satisfied until you are completely satisfied with our craftsmanship, products, and materials.

No Hassles™

If your new system breaks down within the first year, leaving you without heating or cooling, we guarantee that we will repair your system within twenty-four hours of your call or we will fix your problem for free and give you $1,000 for the inconvenience.


Just Right™

Not too hot, not too cold… just right!™ We guarantee that any system we install in your home will either heat or cool your system to its engineered specifications for at least five years. We also guarantee a temperature variance of no greater than two degrees Celsius on your thermostat. If not, we will make any modifications up to and including replacing the entire system at no additional charge.


We Respect You™

We promise that while our technicians are in your home, they will respect your property and protect it from damage and leave their workspace as clean as they found it. You can always expect to be treated courteously and have your questions answered.
