Residential Air Duct Cleaning in Ottawa
So many of us get so caught up worrying about outdoor air pollution that we forget that the air inside our home may not be as clean as it could be. Indoor air quality is a fickle thing, particularly if your Ottawa home hasn’t had its air duct cleaned for a while. Air ducts, while providing your home with heating and cooling, can also be a breeding ground for contaminants that can cause allergies, asthma, eye infections and even migraines.
To eliminate the risk of these irritations and health risks, while also lowering the operating costs and wear on your HVAC system, it is important to get your air ducts regularly cleaned by the professionals at GK Plumbing & Heating Inc.. Our trained air sanitizing technicians have all the necessary equipment, experience and expertise to make sure the air you are breathing in your Ottawa home is the cleanest it can be.

What’s in Your Air Ducts?
Most Ottawa homeowners have no idea what’s going on in their air ducts. Over the years, ducts have a way of becoming coated with dirt, debris and allergens like pollen, dust and pet dander. Not only can this reduce the overall air quality inside your home, it can also cause your HVAC system to work twice as hard to circulate either hot or cold air throughout your home.
When you reach out to GK Plumbing & Heating Inc. for our air duct cleaning services, we can thoroughly remove all the debris that’s accumulated over the years. Once that’s done, you will be stunned by the difference. Not only will the air in your home be fresher than ever, but paying less for energy every month will make the clean air all the sweeter.
When Do I Need My Air Ducts Cleaned?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends that you get your air ducts cleaned every three to five years. However, your unique situation could change the frequency. For example, if you have a serious sensitivity to dust, you may want to get your ducts cleaned annually.
Some instances when you should get your air ducts cleaned even if it’s been less than three years since your last cleaning include:
- You have reason to believe there’s mold growing in the air ducts.
- You have noticed a vermin infestation somewhere in your home, specifically rodents entering and exiting the ductwork.
- You see dust billow out of the supply registers when air is exiting the vents.
Whenever you see black debris around the exterior, that’s a sign that your system is soiled and could really benefit from a cleaning.
Once you have received a thorough cleaning from GK Plumbing & Heating Inc.’s highly qualified technicians, you will be amazed at the difference in your air quality.
