One of the most common scams among unscrupulous cleaners is to get their foot in the door with a $139 cleaning price in a coupon or mailer, then they pile on many extra charges or upsell services.
Once they start talking about “extra returns”, “main lines,” and “parts of the furnace” you can end up paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars in unexpected fees for the “$139” cleaning. A good air duct cleaning, properly done by a certified contractor, is going to cost at least a few hundred dollars. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Many of these ads list a limit in the fine print, such as 10 vents and one main trunk line, but most homes have more than 10 vents and at least two to three main trunks. Companies usually add extra charges for all these other lines. Furnaces are intricate with many parts, and they will try to sell you different parts to clean at $50-$100 each upping the bill. And even if you get them to do the work for the advertised price, a lot of these “blow and go” contractors just stick a vacuum over the vents and call it a day. A true air duct cleaning includes much more than that.
At Aero we clean your whole ducting system including the furnace for one price. No upsells. And you can bundle the furnace and duct cleaning with a chimney sweeping and dryer vent cleaning to save even more and get them all done in one visit!
