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.

From the first phone call these guys were excellent! They were super nice, professional, and flexible. They showed up on time, did the job perfect, and left everything neat and clean. I would use them again and recommend them to friends and family.

Serviceman arrived early, examined dryer, detailed work for my approval by explaining procedure and options; performed work. He could have cleaned up lint/debris around dryer a little better.

Wonderfully! He was thorough, knowledgable and gave us lots of tips on how to take care of the vents in the house. I'm not certain about how much we paid for this service but I do know I remember thinking the price was fair and the service remarkably well done. I would certainly use him again.

I stopped using my previous heating and AC company to sign up with this company. I used them 2 different times before signing a contract with them. They are a very good and trustworthy company. They have a very reasonable price structure. The technicians are professional and good and what they do. They are very efficient workers. It is very easy to schedule a service and they have been flexible with my schedule.

Everything went really well. They were very responsive when we called, they arrived right on time, and they completed the job quickly. They didn't leave any messes either. The only reason we gave them a "B" for price was because we could have done the work ourselves, but we still feel as though the deal was worth the money.

That service turned out fine. It was a short line and one technician came out. It didn’t take him very long. He came when promised and did the work. It has been working fine ever since.

The deal was a $99 and was to include Cleaning the dryer vent end to end or top to bottom cleaning the lint catcher and cleaning the washer and dryer. Those 3 things didn't happen. There was still lent in the dryer vent screen and the washer and dryer were not cleaned at all. They did clean the hose and left a piece of duct tape that was old hanging on the vent hose -- would have been nice if they replaced it. They seemed to rush away so quickly I didn't even get a
