How Much Does Air Duct Cleaning Cost?

Examining Vent for air duct cleaning service

Make Sure Your air duct cleaning service Technician is NADCA Certified.

There are a lot of companies out there that promise a professional air duct cleaning service for a low amount of money. Chances are if it is too good to be true, it probably is. These companies are called “bait & switch” companies. They promise low prices and once they’re in your home they’ll find other problems or issues and up the price astronomically (most times without completing the job thoroughly). Also, try and stay away from companies that charge per vent. Most companies that pull these types of schemes are not certified by NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association). Even if you are hiring a company that claims to be certified by NADCA, be sure to ask whether a NADCA certified technician will be on site during the time of your service.

The fact of the matter is that the cost of an air duct cleaning depends on the home that you live in. A small home with one system will cost less than a larger home with more than one system. The least amount of money that you will pay to have your ducts cleaned properly is anywhere from $400-$500 and the most that you’ll wind up paying is around $1,000.

What’s Included With Air Duct Cleaning

THE FOLLOWING SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN A PROFESSIONAL DUCT CLEANING SERVICE:

  • Supply vents
  • Return vents
  • Trunk lines (both of them)
  • Visual inspection of major components in your furnace
  • Visual inspection of your evaporative coil
  • Wipe down the furnace cabinet and the surfaces inside

There are a few things that wouldn’t necessarily be included in a regular duct cleaning service. Sometimes the furnace will need a more in-depth cleaning than the standard wipe down that is included in a duct cleaning service. The more in-depth cleaning would entail taking out the blower from the furnace- although, some furnaces you cannot take the blower out of. Another would be an evaporative coil cleaning; this coil sits on the top of the furnace, which should be inspected at the time of your duct cleaning service.

Essentially, it’s in your best interest to find a trustworthy company that is NADCA certified. Be sure to visit the NADCA website and see the full list of certified technicians in your area. For more information about air duct cleaning service, or to schedule yours, call us today at .

Why One Size Air Duct Cleaning Pricing Does Not Fit All

Why One Size Air Duct Cleaning Pricing Does Not Fit All

Not All Air Duct Cleaning Pricing Is Created Equal.

One size fits all works great for some things, but air duct cleaning is definitely NOT one of them! Don’t be fooled into thinking you’re getting a great deal. For example, what if our property taxes were one size fits all, and you all of a sudden had to pay the same as your neighbor whose taxes are $1,000 more than yours? Would you think one size fits all is a good idea then? Would you want to trade utility bills with the guy down the street who has an entire additional floor to his home, which contains a home office, and master suite? I think not. Surely one cost fits all is a bad idea when it comes to things that have so many variables, such as our homes! That being said, the same is true for duct cleaning pricing.

A customer with a 3 bedroom ranch style home with 1,300 sq feet should not be charged the same duct cleaning pricing as the owner of a 5 bedroom 2 story colonial with 2,200 sq feet. For example, $350 may sound great to the guy in the 5 bedroom colonial – but at that rate, the owner of the ranch is getting ripped off. DRX knows that every home is different, and our customers have a variety of unique needs for their NJ air duct cleaning. That is why we offer a number of custom pricing options to fit YOUR individual needs, not the other guys. So leave the one size fits all to the novelty T- Shirts, and make sure you’re getting a FAIR price on your NJ air duct cleaning. Go with the pros at NJ’s most exclusive duct cleaning company, DRX!
