We hired Jose to clean our dryer vents. His service was extremely impressive. Not only did he clean the vents,he replaced parts and even fixed a loose latch on the gate in our yard. He was professional, on time, and communicated throughout the whole process. I would HIGHLY recommend him!

Edward did a great job from start to finish. First, he came after work hour to fit my schedule for a free estimate. Then, he shared good information while he fixing my problem. My problem is different rooms in the house being a completely different temperature. Some of those radiator is warm when other is too hot. Edward replace radiator vents, clean my boiler and change some breaking parts. Now I can control the temperature in each room with the new radiator vents, and my boiler run more efficiency! Work well done.

Brian at Net Zero was responsive, easy to work with, and very knowledgable. We needed a little additional duct work, a new furnace, and ideas for heating our extension and lower level. We had in person quotes from 5 companies, and while Brian's was not the lowest, we liked his attention to detail, his style of communication, and overall thought he was the best value.

Extremely pleased with the work Jason and Mike did for our home. They cleaned the vents, more thoroughly than I imagined, as well as replaced our bathroom vent ducts that ran through the attic. A mouse had eaten his way into one of the fan vent ducts and set up winter quarters. Jason also thoroughly cleaned the clothes dryer vent much more thoroughly than had been done by another individual just two years prior. They were very careful about not banging walls and wore slippers when in the house. My wife and are recommend them unconditionally. (P.S. we had not realized that the original building construction crew had used the heating/AC ducts as convenient trash receptacles.)

Justin was great to work with. He responded very quickly to my post, coming out that same day to look at the gas fired hot water heater that needed to be replaced. He walked me through various pricing and install options, with the pros and cons of each (price, warranty, location of units, etc). He came out for the initial consult, worked on various options over the course of a few days, and was the one to install, so there isn't a pushy sales person to deal with; which is refreshing. We ended up getting a wall mounted on demand unit for the ability to direct vent it and it has a 12 year warranty. Justin built a solid wall platform for it to be attached to (since the foundation is brick and rock, there isn't a level place to be found), and he even painted it black to give the finished setup a bit more of a polished look. At the same time we did this one, we had the same setup installed in the tenants apartment. Justin did a great job of notifying us in advance of work days (which were all consecutive, so that was very helpful), so we could work with the tenant for access and installed everything in a very timely manner. When I gave Justin the initial deposit, he returned about an hour later with all the materials, and started work the following Monday. The install looks beautiful, Justin was very easy to work with and talk to and I would highly recommend Justin for any other work. I'll be calling him when its time to replace our old oil furnace. They should really be called Above Average Guys.

Aspen Air Duct Cleaning

Cleaned the ductwork and vents in our house. About 20 of them. Also did an anti-microbial fog in the ductwork. Aspen was the only duct cleaning service that our HVAC provider, Main Stream Mechanical in Amesbury Suggested. I can see why, they were excellent. We recently bought our house and replaced the forced hot air furnace. The house was built in 1988 and I am pretty sure that the vents had never been cleaned. Aspen came and did a very thorough job. Our house smells better and it could be the placebo effect, but I swear my allergies seem better already. They said they took about 3 garbage bags of "stuff" out of our vents. Since Aspen is a certified mold removal company that knows how to do this stuff, I know for a fact that they're using the right equipment (Beater brushes, compressed air, HEPA vac) it is worth the price to know that it was done right and they stand by their work.

Paul came out to my house to look at putting some additional vents in my floor to allow heat to come up from the basement. He evaluated the situation and gave us honest advice and we ended up not installing the floor vents. He could have easily just done the work and charged us, but instead gave us honest feedback and solutions. He also advised us on the mini split system we already had installed and gave us tips on how to get the most from the existing system. I would highly recommend Horizon HVAC and would not hesitate to use them in the future.

Curt and his team were nothing short of amazing. They installed a brand new 3 zone heating and cooling system - including all the duct work, equipment, and removal of 100+ year old cast iron radiators + pipes - in just 2 weeks. The type of system he recommended is fairly unique (forced air over hot water coil) and I was not familiar with it. The quality of the conditioned air is way beyond expectations. They started early in the morning and worked tirelessly all day. Curt also did some quick plumbing repairs at my other property and did a terrific job. I have had several contractors in the house since the system was installed and they all want his contact info so they can partner with him in the future. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Prestige Heating and Cooling!!!

When I called New England Remediation, I talked to a very knowledgeable woman. When she came out to my house, she was very personable. When the workers came out to do the mold job in question. They were very cautious of my floors where they were walking and they contained the room that they had to work from so nothing got out into the air and spread through out the house. They cleaned everywhere they had been when the job was complete. I can’t say enough for this company. I will use them again!!!!!

Peter from Belmont Plumbing was great! I contacted him through Thumbtack for a quote and he answered back quickly. I hired him to replace a gas dryer vent to bring matters up to code. He also installed a hand held shower. Peter came to do the job the same week he quoted me for the job. He was punctual, very personable and neat! I would surely hire him for future plumbing projects. He was more reasonable then two other quotes that I had received.

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 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.

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.
