"Outstanding from start to finish. Appointment was made in a timely manner, and service arrived on time. They were thorough, and porfessional from the moment they" walked in the door to the moment they finished. Highly recommend, and plan to use service every year. Even though I hadn't realized when making the appointment that there was a discount coupon, they were kind enough to honor it. I didn't expect it, but it was a lovely kindness.

-Charlotte S.

"I've used before for carpet cleaning. As was my experience before, they were punctual, professional and thorough. After moving the" dryer and everything near it, they put it back as they'd found it. Although they had to hunt for the external vent (I didn't know where it was exactly), they climbed under the house to get to it and took care not to damage shrubs and lattice in the process. I will definitely use them again for this or other services.

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.

Dryer Vent Cleaning reviews in Richmond


I purchased an Angie's List deal for $239, which covered duct cleaning and an free energy audit. The energy audit was a thorough checking of the duct system, rather than a whole house energy audit.The scheduling of the appointment was easy and the servicemen arrived early and ready to work. They were very thorough in cleaning ...More each of the ducts and the related vents, providing details of what they were getting out of the ducts and asking questions to understand how so many spider webs got into the ducts, for example.

While they were working, they observed gaps between the ducts and the vents and offered to seal them for $5 each, a very reasonable price. Although the deal only applied to 15 vents and 2 returns, I asked them to check the other vents in the home. After assessing the upstairs, they suggested cleaning two additional registers but told me many of the vents did not need cleaning. I appreciated the honesty and transparency with their cost structure as well as what needed to be cleaned/fixed and what did not. Overall I spent an extra $160 on work that could have cost me over $1,000 (I have received previous quotes in the past from another company).

I was very impressed with their diligence, honesty, and the quality of their work and will likely work with them again on fixing duct work issues which may arise in the future.

He was very thorough and had to disconnect & reconnect the ductwork when he discovered there were additional large blockages in the solid metal duct. He worked until everything was working properly (unlike several other repair people I had before). He was very neat, cleaning up everything inside the house & in the crawl space. I would highly ...More recommend his work and have already asked him to repair some drywall patches in the next few weeks.
- Margaret L.

Went fine. Guy came in with his equipment, went up to laundry room, opened everything up, and cleaned it out. He explained what he was doing and that the vents weren't terribly dirty - hadn't been done since the house was new in 2004. He actually said we probably wouldn't even need to do it again for another 6-8 years. Happy he didn't ...More try to tell me that I had to do it every year or that I could get a maintenance contract! Didn't try to sell me one extra thing.
- Kathy J.

Owning a historic home when doing repairs or restoration always provides many challenges. I found one of the biggest challenges was to upgrade the heating and air conditioning. My home never had a true cooling system. I relied on window units to cool the house. I was fortunate enough to find a company whose knowledge of historic homes and modern ...More equipment made these challenges easy. Now I have a beautiful balanced system that keeps my home cool even on the hottest days.
's knowledge allowed for my home to be equipped with modern equipment yet maintained the integrity of my home. The cost for the services was more than reasonable. I would highly recommend and suggest and Air to anyone who is looking to upgrade their home.

- Steve M.

Extremely prompt with scheduling the appointment and coming out to do the work. They were thorough but quick...and fairly priced. I have already recommended to others and would use services again.
- Courtney G.

I had some difficulty contacting the service provider and getting a response. However, once I spoke to them, we were able to schedule the service appointment immediately. I think this was somewhat due to the huge response they got to their Angie's List Deal. The men arrived on time and were great workers. They explained what they were going to ...More do and got right to work. They did a quick job of cleaning the dryer vent at the dryer and from the outdoors. They left our home clean and were quite cordial! I would use this company again.
- Carolyn S.

I had let my offer expire due to personal matters but when I called to make an appointment they said no problem they would honor the offer. They called just before arriving as they said they would, arrived on time, were very polite, went right to work doing an excellent job and then cleaning up. I was very impressed with this company and would highly ...More recommend them, very good job!
- William H.

We were very happy with the service we received from after purchasing a Big Deal from Angie's List. From a professional presence by phone and quick appointment scheduling to professional appearance and great service on site. They did a great job, my dryer is running like new after the cleaning. We will hire this company ...More again in the future!
