There are several factors that we use to determine your air duct cleaning quote.
The Size of the Home
Bigger homes are likely to have more ducts and vents, so the cleaning process will take longer, which increases the cost of the job.
The Number of Furnaces in the Home
Bigger homes are also more likely to have multiple furnaces, which heat and cool the extra space in the house more efficiently. More furnaces, mean more duct work, which also means the job will take more time.
The Number of Vents or Registers
As a part of our cleaning process, our technicians seal the home's duct system, creating negative pressure which allows a deep clean. More vents lead to a longer, more tedious sealing process.
The Location of the Furnaces (crawl space/attic access)
The location of the furnace/s can affect the job's difficulty. If the furnace can only be accessed through an attic or crawl space, this adds time and complexity to the job and will affect the cost of the service.

Duct Cleaning: The Process
Take a look at the section below to learn about specialized air duct care. Whether we’re unclogging a dryer vent or cleaning the ductwork of your entire house, we’ll use the same comprehensive techniques and methods.
The first thing you should know is that there are two main steps: breaking up the debris and removing the debris.
Step One: Break Up the Debris
Cleaning out a duct system involves removing all of the debris that’s built-up in the system over the course of months, years, or even decades. Before we can take it out, we have to loosen up the debris from the various surfaces inside the ducts, furnace, and air conditioner. We use specialized equipment to loosen the debris and prepare it for removal.
Step Two: Remove the Debris
Now that the debris is agitated, we can begin removing it. Debris removal typically uses a combination of techniques and equipment. Usually, we create a vacuum with negative pressure, which allows us to remove the debris while ensuring that it doesn’t become airborne and float back into your home. This air vac duct cleaning method is effective for even the smallest, and most microscopic particles lodged deep inside your HVAC system.
The entire process can take anywhere from three to five hours. Ultimately, the length of the job depends on factors like how large your duct system is and how much debris is built-up inside of it. Sometimes jobs may take a little longer depending on how your system is set-up. Once we arrive on-site and our certified air duct cleaning specialist has had a chance to inspect your system, we’ll give you an accurate time frame for completion.
