$50 for Duct Cleaning - Call Now!!!
by: Island A/C Team

You've seen the ads, "$50 whole house air duct cleaning, 100% satisfaction guarantee".

So let's take a look at this offer... For this example we will consider a 2 bedroom house which usually means:

  • 1 vent in kitchen
  • 1 in living/dining room
  • 1 vent in the hallway
  • 1 vent in the master bedroom
  • 1 vent in the master bathroom
  • 1 vent in the 2nd bedroom
  • 1 vent in the 2nd bathroom
  • 1 vent in hallway between bedrooms

So, someone is going to drive a truck to your home, spend gas, pay insurance on the truck, professional liability insurance, worker's compensation, pay an employee and employment taxes, remove all 8 air vents in your home, clean the duct, and replace the vents... for $50...

This is either the work of a charitable organization, someone who doesn't own a calculator, or simply bait-and-switch.

While there are many very reputable duct cleaning companies, there are still a lot of predatory advertising being made when it comes to air duct cleaning.

In many cases, your air duct may not need to be cleaned. For example, if you notice a foul smell every single time the air conditioning come on, it could simply be a dead animal inside the duct work or near by a vent (if you only notice the smell in one area of the house).

The best way to go about checking if your air duct needs cleaning or if the problem is somewhere else, is to contact a trusted air conditioning provider who will be able to make the right recommendation.
