Air Duct Cleaning: Cheaper Isn’t Always Better
With the cost of living continuously on the rise, the desire to get the best bang for your buck is stronger than ever. Some deals are simple like a BOGO coupon for your favorite product at the grocery store. Other deals promise to save you much more.
With intentions of great savings and a checkmark next to your to-do list, it’s easy to jump at these bargains. Before diving in, it’s important to take a pause and ask yourself, “Is the deal going to save me money or will it cost me more in the long run?”
Even the best bargain hunters will tell you there are some instances where you can skimp, but other times it’s worth the investment. When it comes to taking care of your home cheaper isn’t always better, especially concerning your air duct system, the lungs of your home.
It’s common to find ads from air duct cleaning companies promoting “$99 whole house specials” while flipping through your latest coupon book. Beware of these low-ball prices as this is a popular tactic used by fraudulent air duct cleaning companies to get their foot in the door. Those prices hardly cover the cost of the service, let alone the equipment used, leaving you to unexpectedly pay more while the service is in progress.
These bait-and-switch companies are also known to only clean what can be seen by the naked eye, leaving behind the main build-up of dirt and contaminants found deep within the system. Often, companies like this try to sell you on unnecessary up-charges, exceeding the price listed in the ad.
Avoid having to repeat the process and ensure the job is done right the first time by hiring a NADCA-certified Air Systems Cleaning Specialist. With advanced training and certification in HVAC system cleaning, you can be confident in knowing that you received top quality cleaning at a fair price.
