"We had moved into a new house and had no idea when the air ducts, chimney or dryer vent had been cleaned. Technicians came out exactly when they " they would be there. One of the gentlemen remembered cleaning the air ducts for the previous owner and let us know when it had been done and that it wasn't necessary to do it again. Really appreciated the honesty and saved us a lot of money by doing so. Turns out the clothes dryer vent was almost completely clogged. The dryer works so much better now that the vent is clean.

"Confusion from the start. Technician showed up on sight not knowing what to do. Had to contacted at work, stop, , and scan in the Angie's" List coupon and send before work could begin. I don't know where the line of communication broke down but will give them the benefit of the doubt. Felt like this promotion was an open door for up-selling.

Is Air Duct Cleaning Worth It?

Experts agree there is value to air duct cleaning, although there's no scientific evidence it improves air quality.

Air Duct Cleaning

The air you breathe indoors can become more polluted than outdoor air because it's trapped inside, allowing contaminants to accumulate. Many HVAC companies offer air duct cleaning services, but there's no scientific proof that air duct cleaning improves air quality.

Yes Jupiter. It depends on the severity of the situation, is the mold encapsulated in the insulation. If yes, than replace [insulation] it with new. Is it on the casing of the heater? If yes, clean it with a mold neutralizing metal cleaner. It's not a matter of finding something or someone to clean or address the existing mold. It's a matter of finding a contractor to rectify what is causing the mold grow. It's coming from excessive moisture in the air-handler unit. I can say with 100% surety you’re dealing with poor airflow and/or incorrect equipment sizing! Either issue will cause excessive icing of the evaporator coil, which leads to excessive condensate water in the system. The condensate will eventually overflow the drain pan leaving stagnant water in the air-handler housing, which leads to mold growth. I would not let any contractor do any kind of temporary repair, add any device like a UV light or air-cleaning product until the aforementioned is corrected. I talk a lot about this in my videos and on my website. It is the result of improper system design from unqualified contractors. There is a reason why some guys cost more than others, and this is one reason why!

If the ducts are venting through a window I'm assuming the duct work is all easily accessible.  Lowe's and Home Depot sell a cleaning kit that uses an electric drill to spin the brush as it goes through the ductwork.  I've found it to work quite well and you can do it yourself.  It may take a few passes the first time to get everything out if it has been a while since it was last cleaned.  Just make sure you get all of the loose lint out after running the brush through from both ends and you're good to go.  Please note that if the line is not hard but rather a flex duct line you can easily puncture a whole in it with this kit and will do better to clean it by hand.

There are varying opinions on the type of cleaning to have done on your air ducts.  My opinion is that it varies based on the type of duct work you have.  If you have solid material (typically metal) ducting you can have use a company that uses a brush to scrape the system clean.  If you have flexible plastic or foil ducts the solvent cleaners are generally a safer bet since the brushes often tear holes in the soft material and/or pull joints loose.  It really depends on what type on ducting you have.  You're ducts will collect all kinds of dirt, skin cells and allergens over time so if you see dicoloration around your vents it is probably time to get them checked and cleaned.

Also, don't stop at the duct work.  Don't forget your annual system check up by a licensed HVAC technician.  They'll make sure your system is running at peak performance, keeping it running efficiently and with as little impact as possible on your electric bill.  You can often save the cost of the annual tune up in the electricity cost saved.  If you have a natural gas system a bi-annual check and cleaning of the HVAC unit may be advisable to save electricity and gas.

Your right, HVAC companies are really not much help at all in regard to getting all the rooms and floors the same temperature, and airflow.  It's not their focus or their expertise. They repair and sell hardware.  I had the same exact problem here in Central Florida.  I had rooms that were to hot in the summer and the same ones were to cold in the colder months.  I have a 2 story 2800 sq ft home with 4 bedrooms.  I did a lot of research, and I tried to fix it myself, but in reality I made it worse.  I finally found a company here in the Central Florida area called AirFlowBalance, LLC.  Their web site is AirFlowBalance.com.  This company is not an HVAC dealer or repairer.  Their sole focus is to balance the airflow and temperature in a home by using a nonevasive proprietary process, with patented devices. Now, when I set my thermometer at 75 degrees, every room is 75 degrees.  I no longer have to bump up or down the temp from room to room.  No more thermostat wars with my family!  Also, I was very supprised at how affordable it was and the whole job was done under 3 hours.  They also have an online estimate page on their web site.  I hope this helps, and I am not sure if they have an office in AZ.

if you have exhausted all of your choices I would call and put a complain in with the BBB then go to the DA and put a complain with them.  Then get a good lawyer and sue them for all you can get.

I had checked around with other companies and gotten outrageous quotes to clean our air ducts. I called and they did a wonderful job at an excellent price. They called me to remind me of their appointment and they arrived when they said they would. I was very impressed with their service and I would absolutely call them again.

PROS:
Service performed - Technician inspected my furnace. Then moved onto the duct cleaning. After the second vent he paused to tell me that the allergy issues(the reason we wanted our vents cleaned) were most likely not related to out ductwork, because the ducts appeared to be quite clean already. Even still, he completed the job.
Very ...More punctual
Friendly technician
CONS:
Communication - This turned out to be a moderately messy job. He had to work in every room of the house, and left a little bit of dust under each vent(not much, but enough to need to vacuum). The dust and mess itself is not the problem. It's that I ended up having to scramble ahead of the technician to cover up and/or move furniture and bedding before he made it to each area. Now that I know how it's done, I can understand the level of mess to expect, but I didn't know that ahead of time and it was a surprise which is why I was scrambling to cover things and not get in his way. I think some proactive communication could have given me the to prepare ahead of time and make the visit go much more smoothly.
Availability - No weekends - had to re-arrange my work schedule to accommodate
Level of professionalism - For the most part the technician was professional, but a few items were slightly off-putting. First the air and vacuum lines were slightly short and required the him to move his car into my carport so that they could reach everywhere in the house. Seems odd that the equipment brought was not sufficient to perform the job without extraneous configuration. Lastly, a couple of times, the technician placed some of his dirty equipment on the furniture and the bed. I would expect the dirty equipment to stay on the floor, and preferably on a drop cloth. To be fair, the tech was slightly flustered, having previously explained that normally the vent cleaning is a 2 person job, but that he could handle it himself just fine. I think this raised the stress level and probably to a small level of professionalism.
Overall, it was a decent experience and worth the $$, but could have been a little less stressful and a little more professional. I already have a contract with another service provider for regular HVAC maintenance(I purchased this big deal for the vent cleaning), so I likely won't be using Freedom again, but I'm glad I had this service performed and the issues experienced would not prevent me from doing the same in the future.

The service was excellent! I was going to purchase a coupon via Angie's list but also wanted additional services performed. I called them and they honored the price from Angie's List. The technician arrived exactly on time, was pleasant and very professional. He had no issue with me asking questions and seeing what he was doing (I'm ...More a tech head and DIYer so I like to know what all was going on). His supervisor came out while he was onsite and was very helpful in explaining all about the systems in the house and provided me with some good information on how long they should last and about the change over from freon to the new DOW chemical next year. The service was quick and went flawlessly. They even patched up some holes in the duct line to help prevent air leakage! I would highly recommend them again and plan on using them again in the future for any needs!

He walked around my house taking out the vents, made a huge mess then told me he couldn't clean them and gave me at $2,000 plus estimate for replacing the ducts. I wish I had read their reviews before I made the appointment.

At the time we originally contacted they had a special price on a single furnace house like ours. We weren't sure if that meant a minimum job or complete cleaning, but they did a thorough cleaning. It was a great bargain for the amount of time and high tech equipment used to do this duct cleaning. The large vacuum truck ...More they used must be a very expensive piece of equipment.
asked when we wanted it done and they came on the date and time we requested.
It was a pleasure working with such an efficient company.

and his wife were fantastic! They came on time and explained everything they were going to do. They were professional and extremely down to earth. I watched them start the work in a bedroom and they explained every step of what they were doing. hand-cleaned every single grill after cleaning the ducts. ...More He then sprayed an antimicrobial solution in the area. I had one vent that had black spores and immediately pointed it out to me and was genuinely concerned about the health of the person inhabiting the room. even offered to come back to re-treat the vents with the antimicrobial solution again in 30 days. Needless to say, I could not have chosen a better company. and his wife did not rush through the job. They took close to 4 hours and did a two-story home with 12 rooms and many vents and left everything exactly the way they found it. The final price was exactly what he quoted me.

It didn't go well and they should tell you right away the cost of the product. If you have such a good product you don't need to utilize high pressure sales tactics like those of car salesmen.

The team was punctual and performed initial inspection of the system and provided an estimate. They mentioned a few options and additional services but were not pushy in trying to sell them. They performed all the work in the crawlspace under the house so they would not have to remove our large, painted over wall vents and returns ...More and risk interior damage.
