Have worked with A-1 twice: to fix a furnace and a loose dryer duct. Great experience both times: fast appointments, excellent work, clear communication. Would definitely recommend.

A1 Heating and Cooling installed a replacement two-stage, four-ton HVAC system at my home late last year, 2023. Miguel and his team did a great job. His whole team showed up and were very professional. They were quiet and they cleaned up after themselves each day. Each of Miguel's teams worked diligently the whole time they were there on all the tasked assigned to them, including upgrading my electrical disconnect near the outside condenser coils. I doubt the smaller companies would have done all this. I feel that some companies would have cut corners, but A1 didn't do this. And the price was actually lower than some of those other companies. So it was a great value. After Miguel was done, I looked upstairs in the attic at the air handler/evaporator coils area, and the final result looked like something out of a brochure. All the aluminum foil tape, etc., was applied with care, and it showed. It was not at all sloppy work like you get sometimes with contractors. Miguel even fixed something in one of my zones that was not right. He increase the size of the branch ducts to my smallest zone to a ten-inch duct to increase airflow to that small zone. And it was done at no extra charge. A couple months after all this fine work was done, I noticed a few action items that I thought might improve the job. A1 sent Francisco over to work on it, and his professionalism and attention to detail was excellent also. It turns out that the problem was my fault. I just needed to be more aggressive with swapping out the filter. He showed me this fact without trying to make me feel dumb about it. In the end, Francisco even made a modified filter for me because the original installers (not A1) did not make the intake register properly. The "box" for that register was not made square, which means that *no* off-the-shelf filters fit. I need to fix that register, but Francisco created a filter that will work until I get that fixed. All this makes me want to give that job to A1 Heating and Cooling also. Good work.

Bryce did an excellent job with the furnace tune up. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. I was looking for a company for routine HVAC maintenance. A-1's prices are competitive. Looking forward to going with this company next year.

Bryce Pierce did a great job at maintaining our furnace! He found a vent problem which could have been hazardous (CO backup) and a drain problem which could have created an expensive leak in our attic. He returned a 2nd time to replace a blown fuse at no charge. We appreciate his diligence, clear explanations and knowledge!

What Is Air Duct Cleaning?

Air duct cleaning involves the removal of dust, debris, and contaminants from the ductwork of your HVAC system. This process includes cleaning various components of your system, including the supply and return air ducts, registers, grilles, and diffusers. Utilizing specialized tools, a professional duct cleaning service will carefully vacuum out the ducts, guaranteeing that they are free from dust and debris.

This meticulous process not only helps in maintaining clean air throughout your home but also enhances the efficiency of your HVAC system. By removing the accumulated dust and debris, air can flow more freely, reducing the strain on your system and potentially lowering energy costs.

Benefits of Cleaning and Maintaining Your Ducts

Regularly cleaning your ducts have numerous benefits, both for your HVAC system and your home’s indoor air quality. First and foremost, it significantly reduces the amount of dust that would otherwise circulate throughout your living space, landing on your furniture, bedding, and flooring. This means less cleaning and a cleaner home environment.

Thorough duct cleaning can also help improve indoor air quality. Contaminants like pet dander, pollen, dust mites, and mold spores can accumulate in your ducts, affecting the air you breathe. A thorough cleaning helps make sure the air circulating through your vents is clean and healthy, reducing the potential risk of respiratory issues and allergies.

How Often Should You Have Your HVAC Ducts Cleaned?

The frequency of duct cleaning depends on several factors, including pet ownership, allergies among household members, and the overall dust and pollution levels in your area. However, it’s generally recommended to have your HVAC ducts cleaned every three to five years. If you have pets, suffer from allergies, or live in a particularly dusty area, you might consider scheduling cleanings more frequently to maintain optimal air quality and system efficiency.

Knowing When It’s Time for a Duct Cleaning Service

Knowing when it’s time to call in professional duct cleaners can be crucial for maintaining your home’s air quality and HVAC efficiency. Signs that you may need a duct cleaning service include visible dust buildup around your vent covers, unexplained increases in your energy bills, or the presence of musty odors in your home. Additionally, if you’ve recently renovated your home or moved into a new house, it’s a good idea to have your ducts cleaned to remove any construction debris or dust.
