Weston Duct Cleaning Service Technician

With so many duct cleaning contractors advertising the service consumers need to be aware of the scammers in the business

Weston, FL – David Pisan, a local duct cleaning service technician, explains the true facts about residential air duct cleaning. He uncovers the scams performed by sub-standard duct cleaning contractors that use threatening slogans to get homeowners to hire them. They say things like “What contaminants are hiding in your heat ducts?” or “Do you realize what your children could be breathing?”

According to Pisan, owner of DUCTZ, this type of advertising implies that duct cleaning service is a matter of life and death. This is why he is working to uncover the unknown facts that these duct cleaning contractors do not want the public to know.

Discount duct cleaning contractors that boast low rates of $60 to $100 and say they can complete the job in an hour or two are doing more harm than good. A qualified duct cleaning service will charge between $450 and $1,000 and the job will take four to eight hours to complete.

When asked if homeowners should have annual duct cleaning service, Pisan explains that the frequency of cleaning depends upon a number of variables. The NADCA ACR 2006 does recommend that at a minimum, residential homes have a qualified HVAC specialist (http://www.fortlauderdaleductcleaning.com/) inspect their air handling unit every year and the ductwork every 2 years.

When asked about factors to consider when deciding if air duct cleaning is needed, Pisan explains that there are several reasons why homeowners need duct cleaning service. The EPA suggests having ductwork cleaned if the ducts contain excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home through heat vents. Duct cleaning service can also make a difference in HVAC system performance and energy savings.

Unfortunately, another reason a homeowner orders duct cleaning service is because a slick, fast-talking sales person came to the door and pressured them into agreeing to an inspection. Of course, the inspection revealed “dangerous microbial matter” that must be attended to immediately!

According to the EPA, having duct cleaning service performed by an unlicensed and uncertified contractor can cause more harm than good. Reputable duct cleaning technicians use specialized equipment involving HEPA filtration. When substandard duct cleaning companies use inadequate collection systems, vacuums and short-cut cleaning procedures, extremely high levels of contaminants can be released into the home. Therefore, the discounted price of $60 to $100 is a waste of money.

DUCTZ technicians encourage consumers to have a “no pressure,” free photographic inspection to learn the condition of their duct work. Duct cleaning service can improve indoor air quality and HVAC system efficiency. David Pisan serves residents in North Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Weston and neighboring cities and communities.
