Cleaned duct, vent and furnace at very reasonable price in about 4 hrs and installed humidifier as well. It would be much better if they would have shown me pics of before and after cleaning duct and vents.

Curtis and Max were the technicians that came to our house. They were polite and very thorough at their job. They showed us how much dust and build up they found in the ducts. About 5 years ago we had a well known and expensive company come out and they missed a lot. Curtis found an open duct to the basement that should have been sealed. He also opened up a small area of duct to make sure that all areas could be cleaned. They fixed an area of the dryer vent that was not correctly installed. What probably should have been a one hour job took over two because I believe the last company did a poor job. The next day my wife and I noticed the difference after our first night's sleep after the duct cleaning. No sneezing or headache! I would give them higher than 5 stars if that was possible!

My experience with Sam and Rapid Air far exceeded my expectations. He was on time for his appointment, friendly, courteous and completely professional. He did a thorough inspection of my clothes dryer and accurately identified the problem. He not only replaced the defective part, but completely cleaned the inside and outside of the dryer and all the related duct work leading to the outside of the house. He even replaced the exhaust hose in the back of the dryer as part of his service. Sam took great pains to be respectful of my house and property. Even though went outside and came back in multiple times while cleaning the duct work and had much of dryer taken apart in order to do the repair, he left my laundry room as clean or cleaner than it was before he arrived. The price he charged was very fair and the service was great. I would highly recommend Rapid Air to everyone. Thank you Sam.

We had a positive experience with the Air Duct Cleaning Group as a result of Mark's honest assessment. It turned out our initial air duct cleaning was a bigger job due to heavy mold build-up in the fan and ducts. We were breathing toxic mold and on top of that our humidifier had mold as well. The initial work became a larger cleaning project and Mark's work was excellent. The fee quote while more than the initial quote--considering the issue, the price was reasonable. Mark provided full education and preventive product information as well. The job was completed within the specified time projected by Mark. We are mold free and very pleased with the outcome.

Ken did a great job. He was running late and called to let us know. He spent several hours cleaning the basement. Unfortunately, there is still a smell in the basement, but this is due to having to close up the house without any ventilation. I am purchasing a dehumidifier for this purpose.

Anthony agreed to help me replace a flush mount light in my dining room with a pendant light. The project took longer than expected, due to the combination of a 130-year-old building and an IKEA fixture, but Anthony stuck with it until the job was done and the quality met his high standards. I was so impressed with his work ethic, craftsmanship, and warm and friendly demeanor. I highly recommend Anthony to anyone looking for help with an electrical project!

Mr Palmer did some plumbing work for us. Most reasonable price eventhough the collars for toilets were previously nailed down and broken. Professional and even better pricing. His work is the reason we tips, to insure proper service. Plan to use him for other projects as well.

Mr. Duct came to a 3 apartment building which I manage. They very concerned of the apartment. They did the duct cleaning without and mess or disruption to the renters possessions. They work in an industry infested with fly by night outfits. Basically offers to good to be true. Mr. Duct charges on flat fee and works till the ducts are cleaned. Richard M

Thomas Martinez is very professional, knowledgeable, punctual and a very nice person to do business with. He responded to my inquiry in less than 10 minutes, confirmed that he could do what I requested and had the part (an igniter) on his truck. The price was about $100.00 less than what a well known competitor company wanted. He came out the next day at the time agreed on and completed installation in about half an hour. He explained in detail what he was doing and actually showed me the replacement igniter and the old one. I am very pleased with T.M. Heating & Cooling with the work he did and will call him again with any issues pertaining to my furnace. I will recommend him to others requiring his expertise. By the way, prior contacting T.M., I left voice messages with two other ‘reputable’ heating & cooling companies. Neither has yet to return my calls. Thanks a million Thomas!

I’ve used this company for a couple different dryer vent issues. They always show up on time and do a good job. We had to replace a couple of sections of duct work for my dryer exhaust. The workers were quick and efficient. Would definitely use again for duct work jobs

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

How much does it cost to replace air ducts in a house?

If your air ducts have been damaged, you’ll need to replace them. The national average air duct replacement cost is $150-$280, which may not include materials. Factors such as duct material, labor, location of ducts and linear feet of ductwork will all affect your final costs. Labor costs will vary based on how accessible the ducts are and what material your ducts are made of. The least expensive duct material is a flexible, non-metallic ducting that costs approximately $1-$2 per linear foot. Flexible aluminum is generally more expensive and stronger than non-metallic ducting. Stainless steel ducting is the strongest, the least flexible (meaning installing it typically has higher labor rates), and usually the most expensive. An average price for air duct replacement could range between $35 and $55 per linear foot, including basic materials and labor. A typical single-family home has 6-10 duct runs; replacing or installing one duct run could average $150-$250 for labor.

How much does it cost to have your air ducts cleaned?

If you’re concerned about dust, allergens or mold, it may be time to have your air ducts cleaned. The national average cost for air duct cleaning ranges from $190 to $250. Air duct cleaning costs will vary based on a number of factors such as your location in the country, the age and condition of your air ducts, the number of linear feet to be cleaned, and any repairs your ducts may need. HVAC cleaning companies should clearly outline what is included in their services and at what rate, so always make sure you understand and have a written agreement before work begins. Here are some examples of average air duct cleaning costs:

  • Tiered pricing for different levels of service:
    • Standard cleaning: $100, which may include truck-mounted industrial vacuums, high-pressure air wands and air snakes to clean all supply and return vents, branch lines, and main trunk lines.
    • Advanced cleaning: $200, which may include standard cleaning services, plus rotobrush or viper clean sweep in the main trunk lines.
    • Ultimate cleaning: $400, which may include advanced cleaning, plus insertion of a viper microline into all vents to force debris down the branch lines and into the main trunk lines, to be handled by the viper clean sweep. Typically, all ductwork surface is contacted, before-and-after photos are provided, and the furnace is cleaned.
  • A flat rate for unlimited vents: $289.
  • Additional fees for larger houses: $20 for each additional 500 square feet over 2,500.

How long does it take to get your ducts cleaned?

The amount of time air duct cleaning takes can depend on how extensive your duct system is, how old your air ducts are, and whether they have ever been cleaned. On average, expect a standard size home (between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet) to take 2-5 hours for one to two technicians to clean. Here are the proper protocol and equipment you should expect from a professional duct cleaning service, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency:

  • All doors and access ports opened to ensure the entire duct system is inspected and cleaned.
  • Thorough system inspection prior to cleaning to identify possible asbestos-containing materials. If asbestos is present, specially trained and equipped contractors must do the removal.
  • Use of approved vacuum equipment that exhausts particles outside of your house. If the vacuum exhausts inside your home, it must be HEPA equipment.
  • Furnishings and carpet covered and protected.
  • Soft-bristled brushes only on fiberglass duct board and sheet metal ducts internally lined with fiberglass.
  • Ductwork properly protected.
  • Adherence to guidelines and practices set down by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association.
