How much does air duct cleaning costs and is duct cleaning really worth it?
One: How much does air duct cleaning costs? There are quite a few things that make the cost vary. Some of the biggest is the size of the house and how many systems are in the house. If you have a house that is a 1000 sq ft with 1 system you can expect the cost to be around $200.00 depending on your location. The prices vary throughout the country. If you have a house that is 5000 sq ft with 3 systems then you should expect to see a $1000.00 quote.
The small house can take a NADCA trained crew a couple of hours. The big house can take up to eight hours. There is a lot to air duct cleaning. The days of going to someone’s house and shoving a shop vacuum hose down each vent and leaving are over. We have trucks and trailers that are filled with tens and thousands of dollars in equipment. This equipment has to be strategically hooked up and proper duct cleaning methods must be taken to insure the job is done right. This equipment, training and insurance costs a company a lot of money. A reputable company will give you a complete HVAC system restoration price. When that company leaves your house nothing can be done to that system to get in any more cleaner.
One needs to be aware of a company that advertises $59.99 whole house special. These companies prices are higher than ours most of the time This bait and switch act says a lot about a company and the strict code of ethics that we follow to be members of NADCA forbids these practices. So I hope this explains the cost.
Two: Is duct cleaning really worth it? The answer is YES! Some of the many problems we deal with in HVAC systems on the daily basis are mold, dust, smoke, bugs, dead rodents and other stuff. These problems are major contributors’ to allergies, asthma, breathing disorders and energy costs. Fact of the matter is this there is scientific evidence that we can make a difference in your IAQ.
