"I noticed dryer lint on the "cage" where the dryer vents to the outside. I just bought this condo and didn't know when the vent was last cleaned." Concerned about fire, I called about five places and made an appointment with
. They were prompt, courteous, clean, and replaced the existing cage with a new one. And I could see the amount of lint that came out! I had looked at Groupon deals, but their prices only covered six feet of vent, and I have 20'. My price was slightly lower than others might experience, because I have a ground floor condo and I received the senior discount.

" The repairman figured out that the heating element which prevented the water that drains into the
from freezing was broken. As a result," frost collected on and under the back panel of the refrig., so he removed the back panel, blow dried the iced over back wall, repaired the wire, so the air from the freezer could pass through to the refrig and cool it to the correct temp. Good investigating Time consuming job. Very competent.

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.

I purchased a dryer vent cleaning through the Angie's list promo they had going. I completely forgot that you don't put phone numbers in and had to contact via the email on this site. After a couple days I realized the mistake and found they had promptly emailed me regarding the service. They showed up to the wrong address the first time but once at the right house they did a good job. During the inspection they noted that there was no vent through the roof. Just to make sure the owner came out free of charge and checked himself. He found the pipe had decayed below the roof line and was ultimately roofed over. The staff was polite, professional and did not try to

Able to set up appointment right away via email.
They came early but had someone at home to let them start their work which they completed quickly. Then they waited for me to come home and explained their work and recommendation. Very pleased with their service.

guys were friendly and courteous.......but supposedly in order to do the job they had to put yet another large rectangular hole in one of our ducts. the problem being is that there was already a large hole in a duct from a previous cleaning 2 years before by another company. plus there were several small round holes (12) from previous cleaning this company said they couldn't use those holes for their service but needed to cut out more holes in different spot.
don't know why this had to occur as "air duct cleaning" is "air duct cleaning". same method/access should be used by all contractors regardless. don't think we will ever have our air ducts "cleaned" again!
the tricky thing is that nothing is mentioned about having to cut/drill holes in your air ducts by any of these companies when buying and scheduling this service. also they don't even tell you( nor ask you) they are going to do this when they start the job. It's a shocker!

I purchased the deal on 8/11/15. I was contacted the same day, I gave three dates and they agreed to 8/21/15 between 10-1. They called in the morning of 8/21/15 and said the truck broke down and they probably would not make it. I was offered the following Friday, 8/28, from 4-6. No one called or came so I sent an email. I was sent an email that a message was left and that the technician was ill and we would once again have to reschedule. I did the work myself on Saturday, 8/29/15.

They arrived, and upon completion they said everything was working properly and he was writing up the receipt. I checked to see if everything was working properly and it was not. They checked it out again and discovered the vent pipe had split. He tried to repair and was not able to repair. He was cussing and frustrated. I spoke to the owner of the company and he made the comment that the service repair man did not know what he was doing. He said he would get in touch with another company to fix the damage that was done. On a follow call the owner became angry about having to pay for the repairs and made sarcastic comments to me. He said he had contacted 2 different companies to make the repairs but no one has called me to schedule the repair yet. I am without the use of a dryer now. I do not recommend this company to anyone.

..I signed up for an Angies List special to have all my heating ducts and dryer ducts cleaned for $199.00. But it turns out the heating ducts didn't need it (the dryer ducts needed it desperately!) They reduced the price to $89 and just cleaned the dryer ducts. If they had gone ahead with an unnecessary cleaning of the heater ducts, I never would have known the difference. But their honesty -- along with their professionalism -- earned them my highest rating.

They didn't show up the day they were scheduled to be here. When the end of the time window passed, I called the company to ask if they were still coming. Turned out they had forgotten to put me on the schedule (this is the reason for my C rating on punctuality). The woman I spoke to was very apologetic and I could tell she was embarassed - she remember speaking with me and scheduling the appointment. She offered to reschedule at my next earlier convenience. We rescheduled, and they showed up on time and refunded my $55 for the inconvenience without my even asking for a financial consideration. The 2 guys who did the work were polite and they showed me a photo of the inside of my vent before and after the cleaning. Service didn't take long - but a warning: if you've never had this done before, it is NOISY. Plan accordingly.
