"Our dryer was taking forever to dry a load of clothes so we called an appliance repairman to take a look. He stated that the dryer was working fine it just wasn't" "breathing" right and there was a problem with the duct. After consulting Angieslist we called
to take a look. We called on Wednesday and set up an appointment for Friday.
showed up and started the clean out process and discovered that the original ducting was installed improperly so that even after cleaning it out would clog up quickly again. Keep in mind that this was no ordinary duct work, our washer and dryer are located in an interior laundry room so the duct went through the floor into the crawl space, took a hard left and ran about 8 feet along the joist, then took a right and traveled another 9 feet to the exterior vent. Due to that I wanted to make sure we didn't cut any corners that would just cause other problems a year or so down the road. He suggested that we replace the duct work and gave us a quote on the spot. I decided to go for a permanent fix and authorized him to perform the replacement. He had another appointment to go to but stated that he would return later in the afternoon to do the job. Sure enough he showed right on time, got right to it and had us up and running in no time. Our dryer is back to it's old efficient self. He even mentioned that since there was a one year warranty on the work that I should call back in 11 months or so and let them do a re-inspection to make sure everything was still working properly.

"They came, diagnosed the problem, tools me what my options were and finished the work in a professional and timely matter. They brought in their own mat to wipe" their feet on before they even came in. Listened to my description of the problem and what's been done so far by other companies. Quickly found the source of the problem(s) which was frozen pipes that burst. I was given a choice of replacing the burst pipes or bypassing that loop. I chose to bypass that section since it would have been the quickest, easiest and most important, cheapest route. They broke a small hole to access the pipes quickly bypassed the broken pipes and cleaned up everything afterwards. They even patched up the unsightly hole with cardboard, until I can have it permanently repaired. Most importantly they did not leave until they knew everything was working properly, unlike the other guys that came before them. I am looking to have my boiler replaced some time in the near future with a newer and more efficient model some time in the near future and will definitely call on
to have that work done.

Air Duct Cleaning & Air Quality

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.

Is Air Duct Cleaning Worth it?

Although there's no scientific evidence proving that air duct cleaning improves air quality, experts agree that there is value in the service.

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.

Air Duct Cleaning reviews in Santa Maria


I purchased a deal of the day. I was contacted within 24 hours and was able to schedule the service for Saturday morning. They arrived, looked at my gas fireplace which had not been burning right. They cleaned the vents and dried condensation in the gas lines. Everything is now working perfectly.

came and cleaned the dryer vent which obviously hadn't been done in a while. He then went and looked behind the dryer and discovered the accordion-like ducting was broken. He went into the crawlspace to check on the line and noticed it had hills and valleys and was completely this type of ducting. I asked him if he could install a new system with solid ductwork and he quoted me a price of $150.00. I mentioned that we also needed the piece that extends outside the house because the inspector had noticed that the flap wasn't closing. He said he would bring the parts the next day. He came the next day and installed. The dryer is working much better now and we no longer smell the dryer in the house. While he was in the crawlspace he noticed that my son-in-law had the heat up to around 70 degrees.

turned it down for me. Very nice guy and very good work. Very reasonable cost.
- Melanie W.

I received professional and courteous help when I called to inquire about service and cost. I was impressed that I was able to get an estimate over the phone. On the day of service, the gentlemen arrived before the scheduled time, which really impressed me.

immediately introduced themselves to me and got right to work. I appreciated them sweeping up some of the mess too even though it was obvious there was saw dust on some of the floors from other projects. After the cleaning, there was a problem with the damper on the furnace, and

promptly scheduled someone to take a look, and the damper was adjusted so it works properly again. Overall a really good experience.
- Cindy I.

The individual was quick to respond. He got us scheduled and even though there was a mistake in scheduling he came out and cleaned our dryer vent for free. We appreciated the service and our house no longer smells like dust!
- Christine A.

I wasn't very pleased with them. They initially tried to charge me double the deal cost, but I managed to pay a bit less. Furthermore, I don't know if they ever sanitized the ducts on my second floor, since I never saw anyone go up there. I was kind of annoyed.

The people that did the job,

were excellent. I couldn't ask for more hardwworking people.They showed up when they said they would.
Terrific to work with and didn't ask for a dime until the job was done. The downstairs wasnt warm enough so called and came back to fix the issue.
- ILA A.

It turned out fine and I did not have any problems. They also gave me an estimate to replace the ducts and the unit and I thought the estimate was expensive. They got the inspection done in about 30 minutes. I had no problems with the scheduling.
- Mary R.

Nice job. One time, polite and professional. Offered a couple of other options they perform as I am sure they are instructed to do but when I told him I would take care of those items and he did not push me to purchase the additional services at the discounted price when he was there.
- Joshua J.
