Residential Air Duct Cleaning

Serving the Greater Montreal Area

The Importance of Air Duct Cleaning:

Air pollution is a serious, growing concern for our health. For that reason, we must ensure that the inside of our homes are clean, as we cannot control external pollutants.

Indoor Air Quality

The average home collects 40 pounds of dust every year. How much dust you have in your home depends on several factors including where you live, the season, how many people live in your home, whether you have pets, and even how you clean.

Odor Elimination

Most homeowners will, at some time in their life, experience an unexplained odor that comes from their air ducts. If you smell something strange from your air ducts, it is possible that it is mildew, mold, or dust buildup in your air ducts.

Energy Saving 

Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Also, by cleaning them on a regular basis, it will make your system work more efficiently.


The heating and air conditioning of a residence represent a significant expense in the operating budget of this one. In everyday life, we attach more and more importance to energy saving. We purchase Energy Star certified equipment and appliances, we insulate our homes as much as possible, we seal the smallest space that can let the heat escape, we install programmable thermostats, etc. In this search for energy savings, however, an important element is often (quite unintentionally) overlooked: the impact of dust and debris present in the HVAC system.

The air filter is the first component of the air conditioning and heating system that we need to focus on. Its primary function is to protect the air conditioner or central heat pump coil from the accumulation of dust and debris. An air filter that is not replaced on a regular basis will become overloaded and then create a huge amount of air restriction in your ventilation system. Significant air restriction = loss of heating and cooling efficiency. Result? Your system will then have to run longer to reach the desired temperature, which also leads to additional energy consumption.


Dust and debris cannot be completely captured by the air filter. Some of these contaminants then accumulate on the coil. Over time, this buildup affects the energy efficiency of the coil. The efficiency of the transmission of cold or heat by the coil fins is reduced as the accumulation becomes important. Result? The system must then, again, run longer to maintain the desired temperature, resulting in additional energy consumption.

Everything that is not captured by the air filter and the coil ends up where? Yes, in your air ducts. Over time, the ventilation system becomes clogged, thereby restricting air circulation. Result? You guessed it right: the system will run longer to maintain the desired temperature resulting in additional energy consumption. The solution? Periodically clean the air ducts.


For the residential sector, we recommend cleaning the air ducts every 3 to 4 years maximum. For people suffering from allergies or having respiratory diseases, the cleaning of the ducts should be done every 2 years. Ditto for people with animals or if the residence is located in a dusty environment (busy road, construction, factories, fields, etc.).
