Home Air Duct Cleaning NJ

Having a thorough cleaning of your entire duct system can ensure you breathe cleaner air, reduce the costs associated with heating and cooling your home, and help increase the life of your heating and cooling equipment.

If you haven't had experience with hiring a company to clean your ductwork, you may have no idea how to tell if someone has the knowledge and equipment necessary to properly clean your complete heating and cooling system. You may have doubts when they tell you "we can do it right-it's not a problem".

At No.1 cleaners we do something very unique for our industry. We believe it's our responsibility to explain to you how to get the most value for your money. we alert you about the scams people can get caught in and how to avoid them.


We all get them - those INCREDIBLY LOW coupon offers to clean your air ducts for $19.00 to $99.00 whole house cleaning with unlimited vents!!! Does this sound too good to be true? If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Many customers have called us while some of these "bait-and-switch" companies were still in their homes asking us if we would be able to offer a second opinion. These customers had succumbed to an enticing offer like, "Whole House Package-$19.00 to $99.00, Unlimited Vents up to a single furnace."

Several scenarios are repeated over and over. One that we often hear is that these whole house packages actually only pertains to vent or register cleaning with absolutely NO air duct cleaning involved. Some of those ads include only supply vents, what about the return vents? , main ducts? , air handler unit? - The coupon misleads you. When the tech is in the home though, he will offer, "But for a nominal additional charge of $1900.00, we can clean all the air ducts too."

Some of these companies claim to have found MOLD, which will then cost an additional $2400 to clean, and yet if you say "No", they will offer to do it for only $1500, or only $700 after you refuse once again. Does that sound like the kind of sales tactic a reputable company uses? Is that the kind of company you would like to do business with?

Some of these companies have been issued "Cease & Desist" orders by the State of Florida, some of these companies have had memberships revoked with the Better Business Bureau, some of these companies have frequently changed their names to stay one step ahead of whatever, and the Attorney General's office is currently conducting investigations.

So, what about that INCREDIBLY LOW coupon offers? Do not fall prey to their scams. We recommend that you research any company that you decide to invite into your home. Check credentials, see how long the company has been in business, check the company's history with the BBB, inquire whether the company uses employees or subcontractors, find out if the company carries the proper insurances in case a technician steps through your ceiling, and ask if the company warrantees their work.

You should also login to www.bbb.com and www.ripoffreport.com to check about any fraudulent company.

Choosing the proper company to perform air duct cleaning in your home is essential since you usually will not be able to inspect most of the work upon completion. Do not become a victim! Hire credentialed, reputable companies!

When shopping for an air duct cleaner , the first and the most important step you should do, is find out if they are a member in good standing with the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA).

Number 1 cleaners is nadca approved

Every duct cleaner should be a certified member on NADCA. You can verity that a company is a NADCA member on the web: www.nadca.com

As a homeowner or business owner, rest assured that when you choose No.1 Cleaners as your HVAC Cleaning Professional, you are getting the best!


What makes your service different than these cheap coupons/ads I see?

Almost all our competitors charge less than we do.

This is because almost none of them do what we do. The others do not have the equipment we have, the technician team we have assembled and trained and had certified by NADCA, and the "Source Removal" procedures that we use on every single job we do. It would be very rare for any of our competitors to spend as much time on a job as our technicians are expected to. We typically take between two and three hours to complete an air duct cleaning, even with no extras. Four to six hours on larger homes. All of our technicians know that they have unqualified support from management to take as much time as it takes to deliver an absolutely thorough and complete cleaning at every job. If our people fall short of that ideal, for any reason, we make it right with the customer. We accept nothing less than a complete and thorough job for every customer. Period.

Admittedly, a few local providers have one or two of the characteristics mentioned in the previous paragraph. But nobody has the whole package like we do.

We actually charge as little as we can and still do the job we do. If it turns out that you do hire us to do your home, if you're like most of our customers, you'll come back to us again and again as the years go by, because then you will have that first-hand confidence of getting a job well done when it is No.1 Cleaners doing the work.


What is the different between power vac equipment to portable one ?


Air Duct Cleaning comparision in NJ
Using a 38HP gas engine with a massive power of suction, up to 10,000 c.f.m. (cubic feet of air per minute)
Works like a shop vac machine using 110 volt electric power, with only 700-900 c.f.m.
Clean the entire system, we can fit through any size ductwork and every turn of the system (using one inch or less of air washing tools).
Most of the job is done around the opening and a few feet inside the duct, you can not take a 90 degree turn and can not clean the ductwork that are less than 5" in diamter. They use a vacuum hose that has a 3" diameter while most ductwork are about 4" in diamter or less.
Clean job, vacuum unit is outside the house and all the debris is pushed down the duct through the main trunk (not inside the house)
Can be a very messy job, using low power vacuum machine inside the house at time of cleaning is done, when only some of the debris is inside the machine, while the rest of it is left inside the duct system, and will be blown into the house when the unit is turned on.



Will HVAC system cleaning reduce our home energy bills?
Research by the U.S. EPA has demonstrated that HVAC system cleaning may allow systems to run more efficiently by removing debris from sensitive mechanical components. Clean, efficient systems are less likely to break down, have a longer life span, and generally operate more effectively than dirty systems.

How should a residential HVAC system be cleaned?
The most effective way to clean air ducts and ventilation systems is to employ Source Removal methods of cleaning. This requires a contractor to place the system under negative pressure, through the use of a specialized, powerful vacuum. While the vacuum draws air through the system, devices are inserted into the ducts to dislodge any debris that might be stuck to interior surfaces. The debris can then travel down the ducts to the vacuum, which removes it from the system and the home.

How often should residential HVAC systems be cleaned?
Frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the home owner. Some of the things that may lead a home owner to consider more frequent cleaning include:

  • Smokers in the household
  • Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander
  • Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system
  • Residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollutants in the home's HVAC system.

What criteria should I use in selecting an HVAC system cleaner?
Interview as many local contractors as you can. Ask them to provide a written estimate for the total cost of the job, To narrow down your pool of potential contractors, use the following pre-qualifications:

Make sure the company is a member in good standing of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA).

See if the company has been in business long enough to have adequate experience.

Inquire whether the company is in good standing with your local Better Business Bureau.

Get proof that the company is properly licensed and adequately insured.

Verify that the company is certified by NADCA to perform HVAC system cleaning.

Make sure that the company is going to clean and visually inspect all of the air ducts and related system components.

Avoid advertisements for "$49-$99 whole house specials" and other sales gimmicks.

Ask if the company has the right equipment to effectively perform cleaning, and if the company has done work in homes similar to yours. Get references if possible.

How long should it take to clean a typical residential HVAC system?
There are a variety of factors that could affect the time needed to clean a residential HVAC system, including the type of home, accessibility of the ductwork, and the number of workers on the project. A typical three or four bedroom home will require 1.5 to 3 hours for cleaning using Power Vac state-of-the-art source removal techniques.

Are there any health benefits that come from HVAC system cleaning?
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have been shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of duct and debris. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.
