"They did a great job. Cleaned up after they were done. The dryer vent was having issues and taking longer than normal to dry clothes. After Valley, the drying cycle was back to normal.

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.

, the young man who arrived ten minutes before scheduled, was wonderful. When the doorbell went off, I was on the phone trying to arrange an emergency appointment for my father, so I opened the door and said (not very politely, for sure), "I'm on the phone" and closed the door before he had a ...More to introduce himself as the person who was there for an appointment. Since I thought it was a salesperson, I wasn't sure if he would still be there when I got off the phone but he was, of course, and in the most gentle and polite fashion said, "Hi, I'm from Chimney Doctor and we have an 11 a.m. appointment." I apologized profusely but there's no excuse for my rudeness, which he never even acknowledged. He did the work quickly, carefully (he used a special softer brush because I have flexi vent on my dryer) and was done in 10 or 15 minutes. This young man is exceptional and reflects very well on .

The service that I received on 1/20 (no charge) is the first of many annual cleaning to be provided after purchasing my initial deal/service last year. The crew (2 guys) that came was great that I will specifically request for them next time they come next year. Not sure if my emotions was being played that I end up buying another service to clean ...More my furnance for the next few years again. I wasn't sure if I would have been contacted to remind me for the annual service but remember, when buying such service/deal - you must follow-up to make an appointment.

I deals that I purchased is a deal to good to be true but it really is in my opinion....sorry not right if I provide the details. Thank you.

Great. I used their special Angie's List deal. They called me within hours of my buying the coupon to make an appointment - I didn't even need to call them!

Took about 3 hours, and I ...More can feel the difference in the air flow from the vents and ducts.

He was really good. He quoted me $100; but I got it down a little lower because he did it for the person next door. He is listed in the homeowners association. My experience with their service was great. He was available, when I called him. I had to wait for a while to get an appointment. He told me that my dryer vent is 3 inches in diameter; ...More but it should be four. I think so it was nice to know. He was informative. He showed me what he took out. I was little concerned because I had a little surgery, and I didn't want to come in. I usually clean my dryer vent from the hole. The cleaning was quick. The price was reasonable. He told me how to clean the filters, and he didn't try to push selling things to me. It was a good service. He was prompt and professional. I would hire him again.

My house inspector (for my new home) saw a build up of dryer lint on exhaust outside the house. He told me I should I have the vents cleaned so I called " ". They were prompt and courteous. When they arrived they disconnected the dryer from and hooked up a blower to ...More . They determined that the vents were not clogged and did not need cleaning. They explained the following to me: 1. I have a long-running vent that has a supplemental motorized fan to help "suck" air through the long vent. They showed me the location of the motor the garage ceiling (gray box). 2. motor is triggered by the dryer first pushing air through . 3. Build up of lint on the outside of house's exhaust is a _good_ sign. It means that lint is making it through the vents. 4. I can test the system: start the dryer to get motor to start, stop the dryer, remove the dryer's lint catcher, put my hand by the dryer's lint catch hole and feel for air being sucked into the vents by motors. So long as I feel suction the system is clear and working. They were in & out within 15 minutes. It's a bummer I had to pay the full amount since they didn't have to snake anything through to clean it (for that I gave their price a B rating). At least I learned more about my new house. And I think my house inspector is more to blame for lost money by making me paranoid that the vents needed cleaning.

showed up right on time and proceeded to get to work. He pulled out the dryer and started vacuuming and sweeping the ducting. Unfortunately, the access to the exhaust vent is right behind 2 cacti but had a board that he braced between the vent and the cacti and he was able to gain access. He checked to ...More make sure that heat was venting out of the dryer before he left. The whole job was complete in 30 minutes. I am very happy with every aspect of this job.

The two guys that came to do the work were pleasant and courteous. They were however very late, but they did call me to let me know. They were also considerate of my things and cleaned up after themselves. I don't know how much the work was, b/c my landlord paid for it. But I would hire them if I needed that work done.

Unfortunately, I forget the name of the person who came to perform the service, but I believe he was the owner. Even before he started the job, he'd given me a description of what he was going to do, and what he'd be looking for. The price was also settled upfront. He said he expected to find a blockage, and sure enough, he found it. The vent ...More is clear now, and the dryer is working well!
