Regular furnace and duct cleaning is a key step in your HVAC maintenance schedule. However, not all companies offer the same quality of service. To make sure you get thorough, proper furnace and duct cleaning, you should carefully research the companies you’re considering. Here are six factors to investigate before hiring a furnace and duct cleaner:
1. Google and Facebook Reviews
Google and Facebook are good sources of unbiased, unfiltered reviews. Check out the customer testimonials on both platforms to see what others are saying about the company. Consider both the quality of the cleaning and the customer service experience when you read reviews.
2. Years of Experience
Professionals with a long history in the industry often offer high-quality furnace and duct cleaning as they’re more experienced. However, newer professionals can also do a great job as long as they have the right training and certifications. Keep this in mind as you read reviews. A new business may not have as many reviews as one that’s been around for years, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re not qualified.
3. Education and Certifications
There are certain professional standards that any reputable duct cleaning company should meet. The business you hire should be certified by NADCA, or the National Air Duct Cleaning Association. NADCA has strict standards set by the EPA, and companies must update their certifications every year. Liability insurance is also essential for furnace and duct cleaning companies.
4. Transparent Quotes
Some companies mislead customers with their pricing. They may quote you a low price that leaves out fees, taxes, or other expenses. Then, when you see your final bill, you’ll be shocked by the total. To avoid any surprises, look for companies that are completely transparent and up-front with their quotes. Your cleaner should quote you a final total for the job that leaves nothing out.
5. Before and After Pictures
Most furnace and duct cleaners take before and after photos, which is a great way for them to prove that their work is thorough and diligent. Technicians can’t always take photos of every component of the furnace and ductwork, but they should at least be able to show you photos of the fan and vents. Ask for before and after photos from their other duct cleaning jobs to evaluate the quality of their work.
6. Satisfaction Guarantee
Even with the best cleaning companies, mistakes can happen. A reputable duct cleaner should offer a satisfaction guarantee, which ensures that they’ll correct mistakes, repair broken pieces, or fix anything else that may have gone wrong during the duct cleaning.
