Negative pressure air duct cleaning is a process in which the ducts are cleaned by hand in concert with compressed air tools to dislodge dirt and debris, which is then vacuumed up and removed. It is considered a superior cleaning method in its efficiency and in preventing dislodged debris from escaping the ducts and contaminating the air in the residence.
We don't compete with service and repair companies, we compliment their existing businesses. Jax Vents is not in the dryer repair business, we are in the vent cleaning business. Most dryer malfunction is caused by lint buildup or inadequate ventilation, and when service personnel can't find a problem with the machine, it is definitely a vent problem that we can solve. We work together with the sales, service, and repair companies to maintain customer satisfaction and everybody wins.
On the other hand there are many more air duct cleaning companies that will properly clean the air system and air ducts and use commercial negative air duct cleaning vacuums with at least 2,000 CFMs of vacuum power and utilize proper agitating tools to move the contaminates within the duct work to be captured with HEPA filters and contained by the air duct cleaning vacuum equipment.

I was lucky enough to have my AC lines clog up on a Sunday night. I called Waychoff's after hours emergency service and Erin got back to me within 5 minutes of my initial call. She was very friendly and explained different service options for my situation. Eric was my technician and was at my house within the hour. He was very knowledgeable, explained everything he was doing in detail, gave me tips and advice to help prolong the life of my unit and even let my dog crawl all over him and "help". He had me back up and running less than an hour after he arrived. If you want a company who knows what they are doing and has fast, affordable and friendly service, I would highly recommend Waychoff's!
2 major problems:They had to return 3 times to fix the installation of a new A/C and then I still had to fix another problem after they left. I also had to explain to the technician the difference between a parallel and series electrical installation when he was installing the automatic cut off switches.They also insist on you buying an annual maintenance package, that can cost up to $ 300 per year, even after they sell you a 10 year parts and labor warranty and if you don't buy it, then they put you at the back of the service list when you call for a repair.Avoid this company. There are so many to choose from that this should not even be on your list.

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.
If moisture is present in your air conditioning system, there is greater potential for growth of mold and the subsequent release of spores, which can cause allergic reactions and other symptoms. That’s why it’s so important to have your ducts cleaned properly by professionals. Overlooking a component in a contaminated system can result in recontamination and the return of air quality problems.

We bid out this job to several companies. Curtis was fantastic on the Sales and support side - he was incredibly knowledgable and was able to answer any and all pre-sales questions we had concerning work to be performed, options, estimates, etc. Completely custom-tailored to our budget, with sensible options. Honest, responsive and professional. They arranged for a two-man installation crew to perform the work, and they did a superb job! Their install was tight, clean and buttoned-up in all regards with the Carrier equipment they installed. They walked us through details of the smart thermostat controls we opted for and Curtis provided an option for our Apple Homekit�� compatible thermostat request. Air McCall followed up with an optional vent cleaning service after the install with a separate crew who also did an amazing job! Our 15- year old unit is now running with a brand new 15-SEER system with Dehumidifier that is working GREAT! We were so impressed we had them come back out and do the same for our second unit, which we had planned for the following year. All done now with TWO completely new systems working together flawlessly! Could not be happier with the work performed and the professionalism of the company - AirMcCall should be on your list for A/C - great sales, fair pricing and professional service and installation!
Make use of a business that will offer a reasonable quote, based upon the service that they will offer. Be tired of business that market one cost for an entire home. Consider it, would a painter paint any size home for one low price? Neither can a duct cleaner PROPERLY clean the entire home, no matter the number of systems or air vents remain in the house for one low price.

Under normal conditions, standard-use residential ducts (HVAC systems) should be cleaned every three to five years. Usage, system age and condition, local air quality, and number of residents and pets can affect cleaning frequency needs. Harsher conditions might require cleaning as often as every two years. Obviously, if your system is not functioning properly or the output air quality is bad, consult a professional sooner rather than later to get a proper diagnosis.

I called JEFF Williams of JAX VENTS for my annual vent cleaning. JEFF was prompt and arrived right at the scheduled time. This is our 3rd year in a row we have used JEFF at JAX VENTS. WE would not use any other dryer vent company. JEFF is honest, trustworthy, professional and dependable. He goes above and beyond to do an outstanding job. When he has completed his work he leaves the dryer area clean and ready to be used for washing and drying clothes. I've had other vent companies before BUT, FOR THE PRICE & SERVICE PROVIDED, JEFF at JAX VENTS is without a doubt THE BEST PRICE PER SERVICE. We have him scheduled to come back for the 4th Time next year !!! OUTSTANDING JOB !!!
   Over time, your dryer vent fills with lint that sneaks by your dryer vent filter. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the clothes dryer or the duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat buildup, and result in a fire in some dryers. ISOLATED INCIDENT? Not at all. In 1997 The Consumer Product Safety Commission  estimated that over 15,000  fires occur each year causing an estimated 194 Million Dollars of property loss and 130 deaths.
On the other hand there are a lot more duct cleaning business that will appropriately clean the air system and duct and make use of industrial damaging duct cleaning vacuums with a minimum of 2,000 CFMs of vacuum power and use correct agitating tools to move the contaminants within the duct to be recorded with HEPA filters and consisted of by the duct cleaning vacuum devices.
These are business who are more thinking about getting your cash, through deceptive ads or mailers than really doing the work appropriately and enhancing your indoor air. The really even worse thing you can do is to employ a business that might really develop more of an indoor air issue for you and your household due to incorrect cleaning or usage of inferior duct cleaning vacuums without any more vacuum power than a big Wet/Dry vacuum with a turning brush connected at the end of the hose, or make use of a who is not effectively accredited or accredited to clean air systems. Be specifically suspicious of business promoting the low one cost duct cleaning company, it’s like offering one cost to paint the outside of your house whether it be 1 story or numerous stories high.
To be honest, the price was much higher than I expected or planned for. But I was impressed by the thorough attention to detail, even in the inspection made before quoting a price, and the professionalism and devotion to quality service that I could see in Mr. Stewart and his team. I suspect that others may have convinced me to add services for an additional cost that were included with his service, so I decided to go for the quality he offered and we were very happy with his detailed and thorough cleaning. The tobacco odor removal in a separate residence was the only thing that didn't seem to be as effective as expected but he came back to try again so I appreciate that. Overall, we're very happy with the cleaning and highly recommend this company.

Our technique cleans your entire dryer vent system twice – once from the outside and once from the inside – so you can be sure the job has been done right.  According to dryer manufacturers, your dryer vent must be producing about 96 cubic feet of air per minute at a velocity of 1100 feet per minute in order for your dryer to be operating efficiently and safely.  We test your system using a sophisticated thermo-anemometer to be sure that you are getting the proper air velocity and volume at the vent cap.

As your dryer vent becomes clogged, drying time gradually increases. While you may not notice the extra few minutes at first, the drying cycle will continue to take longer as the vents become more clogged until you eventually have to run a second cycle in order to dry clothes completely. You can reclaim your time that would be lost to extended or repeated drying cycles by having a Dryer Vent Wizard clean your vents!
My A/C stopped working on Sunday afternoon, the repair tech was there within the hour. He was very friendly and explained the problem and the cost. I decided it was time to replace the system which was ten years old. The estimator was there in no time, looked over my home and the system and gave us several options. We decided on a system, and it was installed and working at 2:30 on Monday. Highly recommend Waychoff's!
"Our electric bill has dropped around seventy dollars a month and that is with the a/c set at 76 degrees. I know it will be lower next summer since I am now taking advantage of the energy start setting the thermostat has. Also our son's coughing at night has stopped and I think it is due in part to the clean air effects filtration system that we got when we purchased the system. We are very happy with our new A/C system. Also we got a refund from Clay electric for having a 17 SEER system and we will get to write some off on our taxed next year."

Keep in mind; consider your air system as the lungs of your house. Think about the type of business that you desire to manage your house’s lungs and your indoor air quality within your house. Have the total air system occasionally checked for polluted duct and have it correctly preserved so your Heating and Air System can offer your household with great air quality for many years to come. Certified duct cleaners will follow rigorous requirements set by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. Enabling an unqualified service provider to clean your ducts could be even worse than not having them cleaned at all. More particles could be separated and launched into your house or your HVAC system could be harmed.
This service call was excellent. I would highly recommend All Appliance Repair to anyone needing work. My dryer wasn't working and they fixed the belt and rod, and when it squealed after they left, they returned to add another part at no extra charge. They guarantee their work! In addition, they noticed the vents needed cleaning and did that while here. As well as being professional and efficient, they also cleaned up after their work. Five Star work!

If moisture is present in your air conditioning system, there is greater potential for growth of mold and the subsequent release of spores, which can cause allergic reactions and other symptoms. That’s why it’s so important to have your ducts cleaned properly by professionals. Overlooking a component in a contaminated system can result in recontamination and the return of air quality problems.

The most important reason to keep air ducts clean is your health! Particularly if you have allergies, sensitivities, or respiratory issues, it’s important to keep the air quality high--not to mention potentially dangerous molds from building up. It’s also important for the health of your HVAC system. Keeping it clean and well maintained will improve performance and the life expectancy of the HVAC unit.
Nowadays most homes have a central air system with connecting air ducting to move conditioned indoor air throughout the home. Over time, the air system and the connecting air ducting will accumulate dust and other contaminates, which can cause circulation of dirty and polluted indoor air through your home. Out-of-sight and out-of-mind health items that we don’t think much about are dirty air system and air ducts which could be the unhealthiest item in our home.
