While a thorough air duct cleaning process must be done by professionally qualified service companies, there are a few steps you can take to help maintain the cleanliness of your heating and air conditioning system. One is to change your air filters regularly and make sure you have the right filters for your home and HVAC system. You should also have your system professionally inspected every one to two years to have a technician determine if your air ducts need to be cleaned. In between scheduled maintenance or inspections, you can do a visual check yourself by removing a wall or floor register and shining a flashlight inside the duct. If you can see debris, dirt or dust, it’s time to have your ducts cleaned by a licensed, insured HVAC professional.
From our salesmen Scott to our installers Eric, Johnny and Tim, we couldn't have asked for a more professional, knowledgeable team to do our AC replacement. From the beginning, Scott the made the whole experience easy with his knowledge and understanding of our needs and concerns. I would definitely recommend Waychoff's, Scott and our installers to anyone that is in need of either a service, maintenance or like us, a replacement of a aging and failing ac system in their home. Couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience and quality of equipment. Do yourself a favor, don't call anyone else but Waychoff's for and AC service needs.
The amount of time air duct cleaning takes can depend on how extensive your duct system is, how old your air ducts are, and whether they have ever been cleaned. On average, expect a standard size home (between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet) to take 2-5 hours for one to two technicians to clean. Here are the proper protocol and equipment you should expect from a professional duct cleaning service, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency:
We had an appointment with a 2-hour window that Griffen Services made; No one came or called. We had to call their phone service to find out what was going on.I was told installers should be there. At the end of our conversation, the installers pulled up.We called Griffen Services 3 times throughout the day leaving messages with their phone service, We also called our sales person twice and left messages with no return calls. We decided not to use their services based on their customer care or lack of it. I would not refer anyone that values their time to Griffen Services.
Over time, lint and debris accumulate in dryer vents and cause clogs that can lead to a number of dryer vent problems including decreased efficiency. When airflow in a dryer vent is restricted due to clogs, there is an increased risk of fire, carbon monoxide poisoning, wasted energy and time, and excessive wear to clothing, among other negative effects. There are over 15,500 dryer fires each year, and many could have been easily prevented by professional dryer vent cleaning. Dryer Vent Wizard of St. Augustine’s skilled and experienced technicians provide thorough dryer vent cleaning to combat lint accumulation and hazardous clogs.
"So My A.C. suddenly went belly up and I needed a total brand new unit inside and out. So a little background on myself. I'm an engineer, so I know a little bit about A.C. and how they work. I'm by no means an expert, but it does allow me to detect if the A.C. guy knows his stuff, especially if they don't know what I do. 😉 And I'm happy to say, these guys do. One of the things that helped me chose them is that they brought up the importance of controlling humidity. None of the other contractors I spoke to, mentioned that. I also appreciate the fact that he didn't try to "up sell" me and get me to buy things I didn't need. He was on time, honest and forth coming about what I needed and what I didn't. When the workers came, they were on time, very professional and very CLEAN. After they left, I couldn't tell they had been there. Highly recommended this service."
