Keep Your Home Healthy with Proper Furnace Cleaning
Your furnace and the ducts throughout your house are a critical component to a warm and healthy home. According to Statistics Canada, furnaces were the main type of heating system used by 56 percent of Canadian households in 2007. Forced-air furnaces are used mainly in the Prairies (85 percent), Ontario (76 percent) and British Columbia (56 percent).
The type of heating fuel used is dependent on the type of heating system with natural gas usage predominant in Western Canada. Natural gas can be used for home heating, water heating, and other large appliances such as stoves, clothes dryers, and barbecues. Natural gas was the principal energy source for households in Alberta, accounting for 77 percent of their total energy use.
With the majority of Albertans using natural gas and forced air furnaces to heat their home, it’s also important that they keep them clean and functioning properly. Alberta winter weather calls for regular cleaning, which can serve to improve quality of air, lower energy bills, and extend the life of your HVAC system.
