    I called very early when we had no heat and someone answered the phone. She got a technician out to my house within 3 hours of my call. I'm very glad I called Excellent Air. I was looking for someone new for heat/AC repairs. The bigger competitors just want to sell service plans.

  3. #3 Craftsman Custom Design

    Two points: First, air duct cleaning is a real need. Second, I highly recommend Craftsman Custom Design (Phil Zona) for doing excellent air duct cleaning at a reasonable price. Air duct cleaning is a real need: I'm the first homeowner for my 17-year-old house. Gradually, my wife and I experienced increasing symptoms of dust, such as "post-nasal drip" and sneezing. Other family members are even more sensitive, and when they visit, always experienced watery eyes & sneezing. I began to think it might be dust when I looked at the air in sunlight and saw lots of particles. But I was unsure, after all we keep a clean house, we have the house regularly cleaned and dusted, and I change my furnace air filters every 3 months, using the best filter I can find. Nevertheless, I became more convinced of dust in the ducts when I started sneezing next to a return vent recently. Then I searched the Internet; I discovered that many people say that air duct cleaning is a scam & unnecessary, especially in a house as young as mine. I was genuinely confused by these ideas that seemed to contradict my sneezing. So I decided to perform a simple test: I removed the air ducts in the basement and carefully put my hand into the main supply ducts and slid my fingers around the bottoms. I was immediately convinced of the need for cleaning: a thick coating of very fine gray dust coated my fingers. Performing the same sort of test upstairs with the cold air returns on the floor, I saw even worse dust in these areas, and while sticking my head near these returns, I started sneezing repeatedly. I'm not sure why there is such divided opinion on the Internet, but I am convinced that dust in air ducts is real & needs cleaning. At that point I decided to get several estimates. I contacted 5 contractors. The main question they asked was "how many total ducts, supply and return, do you have?" I have 27 ducts. Three contractors gave me an estimate over the phone, and 2 came to my house (Phil and his dad were one of the 2). The estimates were: $1015, $905, $780, $700, and $550. Phil's estimate was right in the middle: $780; the other contractor who came to the house was $1015. This was remarkable: 5 estimates that ranged by almost $500. What about competence? I asked each contractor how they did their cleaning. The other 4 gave me very incomplete answers ("they stick a rotor brush up there") with little explanation, or did not seem to respond well to my questions (e.g., "what kind of brush?" "how do they get to the corners?" "how often do I need to clean my ducts?"). Phil spent the time to give me an Master's degree in air duct cleaning. He first drilled a hole in my return duct in my basement, stuck an optic fiber up there, and showed me the even heavier coating of dust, this time of a coarser variety than in the supply duct (returns are always dirtier than supply, because dust comes into them from the house and is filtered by the filter, but very fine dust still passes through). Phil gave me information to check on the Internet, and answered all my questions thoroughly. I learned there are 2 methods: rotor brush and "abatement technologies". One uses much more expensive equipment and does an excellent job; the other is less effective. He clearly knew his business and what he was talking about. None of the other contractors, sad to say, inspired this sense of confidence in me (a person who asks lots of questions and wants to understand). After thinking about it a day, I called Phil. He came by and gave me a written estimate. We all had a friendly chat--these Zona's are a happy, friendly sort. I instinctively trusted them. Today, they came and cleaned the ducts. The process lasted about as long as they estimated, & they cleaned up everything afterwards. The ducts look great. My wife and I are sitting here & we notice the improvement in air quality. And not sneezing.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Martinsky Electric

There were several things that inspired me to start our business, the most prominent being I wanted to be able to provide for my family without the worry of an employer kicking me out.

Nick Martin of Martinsky Electric has been catering to clients such as ordinary people who specialize in certain things, but just need help in the area that Nick specializes in. His greatest challenges are yet to come, but so far doing things in the midst of people (not clients of course) who say that he can't do it is his biggest challenge. He always keeps in mind what his friend once told him, "nothing ventured, nothing gained."

I believe that being a man of your word is very important, especially when it comes to keeping appointments and honoring proposals that are given.

For your residential, commercial or industrial projects, Martinsky Electric by Nick Martin is the one you can count on. They work hard to please you.
