Air Duct Cleaning Costs

There are several factors that affect cost and time estimates. Following are tips to help you find a qualified duct cleaning contractor.

Factors that affect duct cleaning cost and time estimates include:

  • Type of ductwork
  • Size of the system
  • System accessibility
  • The number of crew members
  • Level of contamination
  • Environmental factors

Properly cleaning an HVAC system in an average-sized home may cost $300 – $1,000 or more.

Beware of advertisements that have “whole house specials” for very low prices. Duct cleaning scams are frequently reported to consumer protection agencies.  Many of them only include the main ducts and charge extra for the air handler, blower fans, coils, registers and cutting access. Upon arrival many of these companies then up-charge to excessive amounts. Many such “scammers” have been prosecuted for fraud across the country.
