Our Ventilation Maintenance Services
If you want to stay comfortable in your home all year long, few things are more important than a properly functioning ventilation system.

If you’re in need of someone to ensure your ventilation system is in good working order, check out the answers below to some common questions we get regarding our ventilation maintenance service.
Why do I need to have my ventilation system maintained?
Your home’s ventilation system draws in fresh air and helps to evacuate uncomfortable substances as well. Maintenance is essential to this process, and if your system is regularly maintained you can expect to enjoy the following benefits:
- Clean, fresh air in every room
- Efficient removal of smoke and steam
- Reduced allergens and other harmful substances
- Low energy costs
- Extended lifespan of your HVAC unit
Conversely, without proper maintenance it’s likely your home will become uncomfortable in time. It’s better to get ahead of the problem with professional assistance.
What are some common ventilation system issues?
In newer homes, the ventilation system works using a system of ducts throughout the home along with mechanical fans in problematic areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. The ducting part of the system is connected to a HVAC unit and works to force conditioned air throughout the home. Ducts can become blocked with debris, which stops the flow of air and limits the effectiveness of the system, or they can have air gaps which allows conditioned air to escape. These issues can lead to issues like stale air, increased humidity, uneven heating/cooling and more.
How often should I have my ventilation system checked?
We typically offer ventilation maintenance in conjunction with maintenance on our clients’ HVAC units. Ultimately the frequency of the maintenance is up to the client, but at a minimum it’s recommended to have the system checked annually. Some people choose to have it checked at the beginning of the summer and winter to get ahead of issues before the temperatures turn.
