"I purchased the Angies List Big Deal. They scheduled and performed the service. The guy called me and said that all smoke alarms have to be replaced and that they" can do it for a price. I declined it. Later, I received an email with an invoice for $24.95 for 3rd Story Dryer Vent Cleaning. I emailed them asking what this was since I never authorized this service. I even called them. No response. Fearing that they may send it to collections, I went ahead and paid it. So much for a Angies List Big Deal, this was a rip off.

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.

the answers in this on this page are all correct but you are using a bandaide to to cure the infection have a trust hvac tech open your system to see where the dust is coming from you more than likely have an impacted coil that need to acid wash to bring it back to oringinal anything left from the fire is still inbeded in that coil. just remember after that job to keep your filters clean change once a month in the summer and every two months in the winter.

He came out almost immediately and explained the problem of the vent being incorrectly positioned and being badly clogged up. Recommended that the vent be moved and carefully explained three options. He promised that he would be back in couple of days to do the work as he was fully booked. I had a call the next day and the work was completed in a couple of hours with no problem. Everything was left tidying. He went out of his way to explain the safety issues with a dryer. He will be coming back to do some work on reconnecting up a range and microwave. Absolutely excellent service and workmanship. I would definitely recommend. (I wish I could find a handyman who responded in a similar manner)

Everything went very well. The technician was on time (even called first to see if an earlier time would be better for me, which it definitely was), had clear identification, was knowledgeable, efficient, and professional.

The dryer vents out through roof, and was collecting a lot of lint which you could see at the vent and on the roof.
I looked at the website and left my contact info -

contacted me the next afternoon - since he had an opening, he came out that day. After looking around the laundry room and vent, he first went up on the roof and cleaned out the vent - which he said was very stopped up with lint. Then moved the dryer, disconnected the hose and used his brush with extension to run all the way from laundry room up to the roof vent - he said the total run was close to 30-ft. He re-cut the connecting hose from dryer to the pipe in the wall and repositioned the dryer to minimize restriction.

All "A" grades for price, quality, responsiveness, punctuality and professionalism ought to be details enough, eh? These are accurate grades. However, along with the cleaning services,

and crew shortened the ducting from the dryer to the wall, resulting in a truly dramatic improvement in the performance of the dryer (which had been taking inordinate amounts of time to dry anything). The savings in electricity and time attending to the dryer will be significant. Also, it was clear that the three gentlemen on the team enjoy a good, companionable working relationship which speaks well for

It went great! I had

advantage of an Angie's List deal to get my dryer vent cleaned. He was running a little late due to traffic and he called to let me know about the delay. When he looked at old smoke alarm and suggested replacing that one & adding one downstairs, there was no pressure at all to do it today, and several options were given. I was really impressed with everything about the call and would definitely use

After my dryer's heating unit broke, the person who came to replace it recommended that I have the vents cleaned since the heating unit overheating is a sign that the dryer is working too hard and it could possibly mean that the vent is clogged. He gave me

's number and I called him immediately. He asked me a few questions over the phone, told me that the dryer should be taking about 20-40 mins to dry the loads, depending on load size--mine was taking up to 1 1/2 hours!!!--and offered to come to my house immediately!!! He arrived within 15 minutes, explained that he is insured, bonded, and all that legal stuff. He went around the house with me, looked in the crawl space, explained everything to me, and gave me an estimate that I was pretty happy with! He had to drill a bigger hole in the wall because he had to replace a plastic part that wasn't as safe as the metal that was up to code.

was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information with me. He even showed me a clip on the news that explained how dangerous dryers can be because of the fire hazard potential. He installed a camera on the outside vent, so when he came in the house to blow the vent clean, me and my husband could see all the lint that has accumulated in the vent over the years fly out the vent!!! That was amazing--and not in a good way!

also showed me how to clean the inside vent, the one where you just scrape the lint off--trust me, that's not all you need to do!! Overall, he was very professional, but I felt like I was taking to my dad; you know, where you listen an nod politely because they're the expert and you have no idea what's going on. It took

about 2 hours to complete the job--it was raining outside and the extra time was added because he had to replace the part and cut a bigger hole in the wall so that the part would fit--and I was really happy with the price and the finished job!!! My dryer dried clothes in record time that night!!! Plus, with the shorter drying time, I save on energy as well! Overall, I was very satisfied!! Keeping his number!!! he does other things besides the vent cleaning!!!

I made 3 different appointments for this service and they never showed up. After the 3rd time I sent an e-mail and left a voicemail stating that I wanted my money back. Amazingly they immediately return said they were on the way,that they had tried to call me but my phone wasn't working (it was fine) and that my address didn't show up on GPS (it does). They arrived and sat outside in the truck for about 5 minutes before one of them came to the door, brushes in hand. I showed him to the dryer and he asked where it vented. When I I told him the roof he seemed surprised (I had explained that several times previously) and said that changed things. He went back to the truck and returned with a shop vac too. He spent about 5 minutes cleaning, said he was done and that what he had cleaned out was wet, so I probably had another problem, a leak at the roof. I asked if he wanted to go into the attic to see and he declined, that the could come another time when the weather was better to do that. He left, offering no receipt for my purchase. The other fellow so at in the driver's seat with the motor running the entire time and they quickly left. I do not feel I got what I paid for, and feel that they were completely unprofessional. I would NEVER recommend this company or use them again. I don't know how they can stay in business if this is how they work.

What a professional !
He explained everything. He replaced and upgraded the connector piece to code.
He had a camera on the outside vent to show all the lint coming out of the hose.
He showed me how to properly clean the dryer screen and the vent and gave me a special brush to use.
He explained the importance of doing this every 2 years and showed me pictures to make me realize how important this is.
This was a most important service that I had been putting off for years- and I'm very glad to have found
