When was your furnace last cleaned?
Complete Service: Inspection and cleaning of your HVAC system should include not only the ducts, but also the furnace. Components such as the A-Coil should be included in every cleaning – many companies do not. Therefore, you are NOT getting a full service cleaning. Cleaning the ducts and not the furnace is like having an oil change on your car, but putting the same old oil back in. If your furnace is still dirty, your ducts will be, too.
Studies show up to 15% reduction in energy costs after a complete A-Coil cleaning.
Gimmicks or Cheap Prices: Any company that claims an “all inclusive cleaning cost” for under $150 will most likely ONLY vacuum the ducts without servicing the furnace and push expensive, unnecessary upsells during their visit. High-quality air duct cleaning should cost upwards of $450 or more, involve at a minimum two Ventilation Maintenance Technicians (VMT) several hours with the use of advanced equipment and include detailed cleaning of the furnace.
Certifications: The HVAC cleaning company that you choose to service your home should be one that holds an accreditation by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), which sets the industry standards for all HVAC system cleaning.
When should I clean?
Many people do not realize the importance and significant impact having proper furnace and air duct cleaning can have on many aspects of their lives. Whether you’re trying to save money on your monthly heating or cooling bill, increase the life of your HVAC system, or improve the cleanliness of your home, there are many times you should seriously consider having your furnace and ducts professionally cleaned.
- Visible mold growth inside the ducts
- Ducts are infested with vermin (mice, bugs, etc)
- Ducts are clogged or blocked
- Visible particles released from supply registers
Furnace and ducts should be inspected every two years per NADCA standards.
The duct cleaning process refers to the many various components that make up the entire heating and air system, which includes, but not limited to, the ducts, registers, grilles, diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensation pans (drip pans), fan motors, fan housing, and air unit housing.
What can I expect from the service
All Crisis Cleaning technicians hold NADCA certifications and follow the NADCA standards to perform the high quality furnace and air duct cleaning services you deserve. Hiring only a NADCA certified company ensures the type of work being performed.
The system will be inspected either visually or by remote camera to ensure the ducts are free of any potential asbestos containing material or mold growth. We may also discover during the inspection that no cleaning is necessary.
Our technicians will cover all carpet, furniture, and other furnishings to protect them from any loose particles that may become dislodged during the cleaning service. They will also wear protective footwear and equipment to ensure cleanliness in the home while working.
Crisis Cleaning uses high-efficiency vacuum equipment to remove the particles from the entire duct system and furnace or cooling unit. This machine will have brushes and extensions to dislodge any debris that is clogged or adhered to the inside of the duct work.
How do I verify the cleaning service?
As with any service, you, as a client, have the right to see visual proof of completion of the project. We offer a post service report or onsite inspection to the client as evidence of services rendered.
After the entire HVAC system is cleaned, you should not be able to detect any debris inside the ducts or on any of the furnace components.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a Post-Cleaning Consumer Checklist available as a guideline to ensure the service provided meets industry standards. Crisis Cleaning will provide you a copy of this checklist at the end of the service and be available to answer any questions you may have.
