5 CRITICAL QUESTIONS... you should ask your Furnace and Air Duct Cleaning Technician before allowing them into your home.
Q. How often should I have my furnace and ductwork cleaned and inspected?
A. While it is true the EPA doesn’t have any recomendations on how often you should have your ductwork cleaned, they also don’t have guidelines as to when you should clean your carpet or windows. Many Furnace and Air Duct Cleaning Companies will tell you that you should have it done annually. In the Furnace and Air Duct Cleaning industry, a reputable company will help you decide how often, based on your families health concerns, environment, pet dander, remodeling projects and personal preference. Hire a company that doesn’t try to mislead you or use other "scare tactics" but prefers to establish a long term, trusting relationship with you, regardless of what your needs may be.
Q. Will you have the equipment needed to properly clean my system when you arrive?
A. Hire a company with a fleet of service vehicles, each supplied with truck mounted equipment and enough hoses and lines to be able to thoroughly clean all your ductwork. Avoid hiring a company that uses inexpensive, portable equipment and is unable to reach all the components of your heating and cooling system.
Q. Will I have to wait around all day for you to show up?
A. Most companies overbook their technicians, causing frustrating delays that inconvenience you and your family. An efficient Heating and Cooling Company runs enough dependable vehicles and employs enough quality technicians to stay on schedule. Make sure you hire a company that is able to offer you a 2 or 3 hour arrival time window.
Q. Do your technicians have training or schooling?
A. Many companies in the industry employ untrained, inexperienced technicians and office personnel. Well trained technicians and experienced management prove competency, quality, and reliability. Hire a qualified company that is experienced and well trained when working on the most important appliance in your family’s home.
Q. Will there be any hidden costs?
A. It is very important that you are aware of all of the costs involved in an installation or a repair before you begin the job. Dollar amounts should always be quoted to the penny before work has begun. Before you hire a company to repair or install any equipment for you, make sure they quote you the exact price of the work to be performed.
