Your heating, air conditioning, ventilation and ductwork (HVAC) is the lungs of your home. Pet hair, dander, construction debris and dust will build up in your ducts over the years. It is recommended that ducts be cleaned every 2-3 years and even more often if you have pets or had a major construction work done in the house.
The best method for cleaning your HVAC system is the “PUSH PULL METHOD”. “PUSH” is provided by an air compressor than can produce enough air volume (at least 30 CFM) to fill the duct with air and enough pressure (at least 150 PSI) to be able to push the debris from the vent lines into the main truck lines. “PULL” is provided by a powerful vacuum connected to the furnace that will suck the debris out of the system. Furnace, A/C and blower are then thoroughly cleaned to keep it running at full efficiency.
AVOID SCAMS! Be sure to ask the contractor you’re hiring if they are using the “push pull method” and if they have a high powered compressor and vacuum to do the job right. Ask how long it will take to clean your system. It takes 2-3 hours for 1 person to clean an average house with around 20 vents. If they’re charging way less and can do the job way faster then you better be careful. Be aware that there is no way to do the job properly, charge so low and still gain profit from it.
No Tricks, No Gimmicks, Just Honest Cleaning
No air duct cleaning company will do a thorough cleaning of your entire HVAC system, charge $100 or less, be profitable and survive in the business. Companies that advertise these cheap packages are “bait and switch companies”. When they get to your home they will charge hundreds of dollars extra to do area’s that are obviously going to be part of cleaning process. For instance, they will push the debris from the hot air supply vents into the main trunk line, show you all the dirt that is accumulated and charge extra if you want it cleaned. They will also charge extra for cleaning the furnace. These companies will also not clean your system unless you do the whole system ending up with a very large bill at the end.
