At Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we have years of experience cleaning air ducts and our trained technicians know how to get the job done.

Why Should I Clean My Air Ducts?

Cleaning your air ducts will remove any buildup, particulates, allergens, or other debris that has built up in your AC system. Getting rid of all of this provides better air quality and can improve the health of you and your family by decreasing the number of contaminants in your air. In fact, the NADCA recommends Minneapolis homeowners clean their air ducts once every 3-5 years. “If you have allergies or asthma, you should consider having it done almost annually.”
