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.

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.

was more than gracious in waiting to reschedule our appointment. I am super happy with the work that was done. The house smells fresher and the vents look nearly brand new. The technician who came to the house was very professional and methodical in his work - he also thoroughly explained everything to me. I am more than pleased with the work and will definitely use this company again.

When I scheduled someone to come out and get the information he needed to provide an estimate, I was told he would arrive at my house at 9:00. At about 10:00 I called because no one had arrived yet. Then she said he was scheduled to be at my house some time between 9:00 and 11:00. He did arrive at 11:00. He was very nice and professional and I showed him what I wanted done. He said it might take a week for him to prepare the estimate and e-mail it to me. After one month of not hearing back, I called and spoke to a woman who was very nice and professional. She said she would talk to the gentleman that evening and make sure I get an estimate the following morning. Again, I did not hear back and in another week I called again. This time I spoke to a man who apologized and said he would check into it and call me back. He never called back and I never got an estimate. I decided I wasn't going to "beg" them to work for me and that they must not want the job. It would have been nice had they told me they wouldn't/couldn't do the work so I could more timely find someone who would. Was extremely aggravating as I need the work done before the holidays.

They were great -- knew exactly what to do and did it with a minimum of fuss. Plus, they were both really nice guys. Will definitely use this service when I need to do it again in a couple of years.

They showed up on time and did not mess around. I have no complaints. Like all companies in this business they charge by the number of vents you have. I had six, which is not many, and the lengths of the runs were short. I think my longest was between 15 and 20 feet. One run went up to the second floor, so it was about 10 feet long, the others were shorter then that. It only took
about an hour for two workers to do the job. I think my job was fairly easy; from what I understand some jobs take 3 or 4 hours.
