Five Questions to Ask when Choosing an Air Duct Cleaning Service

When dust, debris, and pet hair accumulates in ductwork and on your system, your heat pump or furnace has to work harder, leading to reduced efficiency and higher energy costs. But, with an investment in HVAC cleaning and duct cleaning, you can often see immediate savings on household utilities, and ultimately, a longer lifespan for your furnace or heat pump.

DASH Heating and Cooling is always a phone call away when you have any questions about air duct cleaning or household comfort systems. We’ve been serving central Arkansas since 1939, and we’re ready to make you our next satisfied customer! Here are a few things to keep in mind as you shop around for duct cleaning services:

  1. Are they experienced? Older companies are easier to research, but there are also many young contractors who have completed the same licensure requirements. The important question is their experience working on air conditioning systems similar to those in your home.
  2. What do their references say? Contractors are glad to provide references, and you can assume that they are satisfied customers. But be sure to make the call, and ask specific questions. Find out how long ago that the service was performed, and how well that their heating and air are working now.
  3. What information can you find online? Always look for reports on file with your local Better Business Bureau, and on social media sites such as Angie’s List.
  4. Does the estimate make sense? Get multiple estimates, and question bids that are substantially lower than the others. Some companies advertise rock-bottom prices, then surprise customers with add-on costs. Proper duct cleaning services should include a thorough cleaning of ducts, and the furnace or heat pump intakes and exhausts. If the estimate includes any services that you don’t understand, get the contractor to explain it in layman’s terms.
