Are you unsure of how much time you need to plan for your appointment to clean your air ducts? Businesses with low prices promise a quick turnaround. But this often means that your HVAC system was not properly cleaned. Proper air duct cleaning will improve the quality of the air inside your home and reduce your electricity costs.

According to our expert air duct cleaning technicians, cleaning your air duct system completely takes two to four hours. This holds for all primary and return vents in addition to the furnace itself. The actual amount of time needed to clean your air ducts will depend on the size of your HVAC system.

Depending on the size of the HVAC system, it will take two to four hours for our knowledgeable air duct cleaning specialists to complete a comprehensive cleaning. In a small residence, we may complete the air duct cleaning process in around three hours. A thorough air duct cleaning service is needed for larger homes, typically those over 3,000 square feet, and it takes closer to five hours.

Many inexpensive companies claim to be able to clean your air duct system in one hour. Your air ducts weren’t sufficiently cleaned, though. Since they don’t put up an appropriate negative air system to sweep and have every line and trunk line treated, cheap air duct cleaners never completely clean your HVAC system.
