HVAC and HRV
Regularly scheduled maintenance of your furnace, HVAC or heat recovery ventilation unit should include furnace duct cleaning to ensure that the air delivered within your home is not recirculating airborne debris which can include things like pet dander, dust mites, and even rodent debris.
Call Oliver’s Power Vac & Chimney Sweep to schedule your furnace duct cleaning, especially if you are noticing:
- Dust accumulating on your furniture even shortly after cleaning
- Persistent musty odours
- Air flow through your furnace ducts is not as powerful as it could be
- A worsening of respiratory allergy symptoms
Residential HVAC and HRV
An HVAC unit delivers heat, ventilation, and air conditioning functions to your home. Over time, household dust and debris settles in the HVAC venting ducts, recirculating the same debris into the air you breathe. HVAC duct cleaning is part of the regularly scheduled HVAC maintenance recommended by HVAC manufacturers. Oliver’s Power Vac & Chimney Sweep uses a powerful truck-mounted vacuum that works at 25,000 cfm to clean your furnace ducts of dust, dirt, pet dander and possible debris left by rodents. The power vac is connected to the both the main hot and cold ducting individually to achieve maximum suction on both areas of the unit. Each duct is thoroughly cleaned using specialized high pressure air tools including air whips(flails), back and forward blowers and brushes powered by a 220 psi air compressor. Our crew uses these tools to physically loosen the dirt in each furnace duct and move it toward the power vac truck. After each furnace duct has been cleaned, we remove the dirt from the main furnace ducting as well as the furnace blower. If required we can then apply a coating of disinfectant or sealant to ensure that there is no mold, bacteria or odor left behind. Oliver’s Power Vac & Chimney Sweep is a member of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association which provides the training and guidelines for industry standards.
A HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation) system brings in fresh air that - through an air exchanger - is heated using heat from the warm, stale air in the home. As with your furnaces' HVAC, the ducts for an HRV should be regularly power vacuumed as well.
