Should I Clean My Ductwork Now?

Here we are almost to the middle of August and soon school will start up and we will begin to move back into our Boise homes for the fall and winter. It will also be time to have your ductwork cleaned. In the fall, we start closing windows and doors, our houses can’t ‘breathe’ as it were. When that happens we often end up with more pollutants inside our home than there is outside!

The pollution comes from dust, pet dander, chemical cleaners, and ‘Volatile Organic Compounds’ found in carpet, some flooring materials and other home building products. All this pollution ends up getting caught in your ductwork and continues to filter through to those living in your home.

A quality duct cleaning can significantly reduce the amount of indoor pollution and make the air in your home smell fresher. At Greens Heating and Air, we only do professional cleaning that can take anywhere from 4 to 7 hours to perform. We use state of the art equipment to make sure each duct line is thoroughly cleaned. Your system is cleaned all the way back to your furnace. We wash all your duct registers, and can add deodorizers and anti-bacterial fogging.

Don’t be fooled by ‘low cost’ full house duct cleaning advertisements.

Especially in duct cleaning, you get what you pay for. We recommend having your ducts cleaned every 3 to 5 years, depending on your home environment and outside elements. (smokers, dusty surroundings, family allergies, heart/lung ailments)

So, before you settle in for the winter and the holidays, be sure to call us to get your ‘ducts in a row’. Appointments are beginning to fill up and we want your home to be safe and clean for the winter. For more information, please visit our website at, click on ‘What We Do’.
