Air Duct Cleaning in Courtenay, BC and Surrounding Areas
Think of the air ducts inside your house as the passages of a lung. It’s easier for air to pass through a lung—and keep a person healthy—if those passages are clear of obstructions. When the ductwork of an HVAC system is clogged with dust and debris, it forces the system to work harder, the same way a lung would have to work harder. That’s bad news in numerous ways.
The solution is routine duct cleaning, which only professionals like ours at Temprite Climate Solutions can do correctly. We’re the forward-thinking HVAC company serving Courtenay, BC and the surrounding areas. We view the home as a complete system, which is why we understand the importance of care for the ductwork and regular duct cleaning.

Why Should You Have Your Ducts Cleaned?
People often dismiss duct cleaning because they may not understand the immediate and long-term benefits. When ducts pick up too much dust and lint along their walls, which can take from three to five years, it creates trouble for comfort, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality. Here are the basic reasons to schedule routine duct cleaning with us:
- Improved HVAC efficiency: Even a thin layer of dust along the walls of ducts restricts airflow and causes the blower of the HVAC system to work harder. If the ducts are left to become excessively dirty after a few years, the effect on monthly bills can become enormous. With clean ducts, you get a "reset" that takes HVAC efficiency back to its original levels.
- Improved capacity: When the HVAC system strains to do its job, it can’t do that job as well. You’ll pay more for lower airflow, and that can lead to a less comfortable home.
Poor indoor air quality: The ducts will turn into a reservoir of dust and other contaminants that blow around the house each time the HVAC system turns on. No matter how much you clean the rest of the home, the ductwork will still move dust around to keep it polluted.
How to Tell You Need Ductwork Cleaning
We recommend scheduling duct cleaning every three to five years, even if you don’t see warning signs the ducts have become dirty. There are specific indications to watch for that will tell you the time has come to contact us to schedule this service.
The main one is a steep climb in energy bills that doesn’t appear to come from increased use or from any malfunction in the heater or air conditioner. Also watch for air that seems dusty all the time and musty odors from the vents each time the blower fan comes on.
Duct Cleaning Should Be Left to the Professionals
