Duct cleaning fixes problem with the gas furnace

I have regularly been absolutely conscientious about replacing the air filters in the oil furnace & air conditioning every month, but i schedule professional service for the heating system in the fall & the cooling system in the Springtime.

  • I am not sure why I forgot about taking care of the HVAC duct.

I think that because the pipes are hidden in the walls & ceiling, I just never considered the need for service. I was not thrilled when our oil furnace had trouble keeping the modern home sizzling last winter! The gas furnace seemed to be running non stop & yet the temperature was inconsistent from 1 room to another. No matter how high I adjusted the thermostat, the modern home felt freezing. The oil furnace is not that old & should have been able to handle the cold weather. I also noticed that there seemed to be a lot of dust floating around, & our daily utility bills were higher than normal. I finally hired an Heating, Ventilation, & A/C company to check out our oil furnace. The company checked the gas furnace & found that the problem was caused by the HVAC duct. There was a considerable buildup of contaminants in the pipes. The accumulation of dust, pet dander, pollen, mold growth & even dead rodents was blocking airflow through the pipes… Because the maximum amount of air was failing to reach the various rooms, it was forcing the oil furnace to run more often, work harder & use more energy. There was greater wear & tear on the gas furnace. The company offered a duct cleaning repair using unit that looked a lot like an industrial vacuum cleaner.
