Making sure your air ducts are clean can save you a lot of money when it comes to your energy bills. However, with so many companies offering HVAC services online, choosing the right company can get difficult. Read on to learn what to look for and what questions to ask when picking a company to clean your property’s air ducts.

1. Read Some Reviews

Your first stop is probably going to be Google. Look for testimonials from other customers and see what they have to say about a company’s services and technicians. Reviews that state that customers are returning to the same company repeatedly is usually a good sign.  If you’re still unsure, many companies are happy to provide references if necessary.

2. Pricing

Another big factor to consider is how much a company charges. Different air duct cleaning companies have different pricing structures. Some charge by the number of air vents you have, others charge according to the area of the house, while still others may have fixed pricing for a certain number of air ducts with a surcharge for additional ones. 

A well-established air duct cleaning company will be upfront about their charges and may even be able to give you an estimate over the phone.

3. Credentials

A company that has been around for a while must be doing something right. Dun-Rite Vac was established way back in 1998 and has several returning clients. It’s also important that a company has the right certifications, memberships, and insurance. Dun-Rite Vac is qualified to handle the job.

4. Liability Insurance

Air duct cleaning requires specialized knowledge and training. Any reputed air duct cleaning company will have liability insurance in case of any injury to an air duct cleaning specialist or accidental damage to your home.

You can always ask to see proof of insurance before hiring a company.

5. Checking HVAC Systems

A good question to ask companies is if their air cleaning specialists are also qualified to check other components of your HVAC system. It’s a good idea to have this done while your air ducts are being cleaned so that any problems in the larger system are flagged and can be repaired if necessary. Most technicians are happy to give components like your furnace and A-coil a quick once over.

6. Procedures

A technician from a reputable company will also be able to describe exactly what they will be doing during the air duct cleaning process, along with the equipment they will be using and how long the process might take. They will typically also explain how they ensure that the systems have been properly cleaned and will be able to show you evidence of the same.
