Air Duct Cleaning

Sears Air Duct Cleaning
Concealed behind your walls and mostly ignored, your air ducts serve as vital pathways that deliver warm and cool air throughout your home during the year. While they may be unseen, your air ducts are working nearly year round, whenever you have your air conditioner or heater running. Attached to your HVAC system, air ducts transfer the air from these systems throughout your home. What many homeowners don’t realize, though, is that your air ducts, in nearly constant use, continually accumulate dust, grime, debris, pet dander and allergens throughout the year. In fact, according to National Air Duct Cleaners Association the average American home produces 40 pounds of dust per year! 1

Air Duct Cleaning and Indoor Air Quality

While vacuuming and dusting may be a part of your weekly cleaning routine, these basic methods invariably leave dust and dirt behind, and no amount of regular cleaning can capture every dust mite your home produces. As such, much of that dust and dirt ends up in your air ducts. What’s worse is that this same dust continues to recirculate over and over again, with the dust continuing to accumulate inside your ducts even while it’s redistributed throughout your home.

This constant cycle of dust accumulation and redistribution can have serious effects on your home’s cleanliness and your family’s health. Constantly re-circulated allergens will irritate allergy sufferers throughout the year, even when their allergies are not in season (like pollen and weed allergies). Additionally, people with compromised respiratory systems may experience difficulty breathing in homes with high dust quantities. With Sears Air Duct Cleaning, you can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your air ducts, which can lead to a better indoor air quality throughout your home.

The Air Duct Cleaning Process

Once on the scene, trained Sears professionals utilize powerful, truck-mounted equipment to clear your air ducts of dust, debris, pet dander, allergens, and grime. This powerful suction equipment essentially vacuums out years of accumulated dust from the air ducts, leaving them clean and clear. Once finished, our technicians remove all equipment and make sure that your ducts and HVAC unit are restored to their former condition.

Air Duct Cleaning & HVAC System Efficiency

Your HVAC unit and air ducts deliver heated or cooled air throughout your home year-in and year-out. The air your HVAC unit produces travels through your air ducts and heats or cools your home through the air vents in each room. The EPA defines the dust and other particles in your home’s air as particulate matter, "a complex mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets." The EPA also notes that, "Particle pollution is made up of a number of components, including acids (such as nitrates and sulfates), organic chemicals, metals, and soil or dust particle." 2 If you remove your furnace filter and hold it up to the light, you can probably see several hundred of these minuscule particles floating in the air.

While your furnace filter is designed to trap this particulate matter and prevent it from entering your air ducts, often particles still get through. The amount of particles your HVAC filter traps coincides with the quality of air in your home: the lower the quality of air, the more particles your filter will trap, and the more particles are likely to get through the filter. If these particles are allowed to build up, your HVAC system can become less efficient, having to operate longer to heat or cool your home. An inefficient HVAC system can result in inconsistent heating or cooling, higher utility costs, and expensive HVAC unit repairs (for instance, an A-coil or blower motor) if the problem is left unchecked. Air duct cleaning from Sears, which focuses on the dirt in your air ducts, can also boost the efficiency of a dirty HVAC system, cleaning out the particulate matter that can hinder HVAC effectiveness.

The technician explained to me that they would cut a hole in the sheet metal on the front of my furnace. I thought I heard him say they had a panel to match mine and would install it upon completion. Currently there is a hole taped over with duct tape. Is this correct?

I requested air duct cleaning and was told that more was needed to clean/keep my unit running properly. I am hoping the cleaning was thorough especially since I was charged much more than I was quoted/planned to spend. I was promised a free filter that I am expecting to arrive in 3 weeks that I was told would help my unit run efficiently. I would suggest that prices are discussed and held to before/when paperwork is being prepared.
February 06, 2018 5
The technicians provided amazing customer support and I would use them again for my duct cleaning needs.

The guy that came out first and did an inspection told me that I needed my furnace cleaned. I told him that is new and only 6 months old and he told me it was dirty. I inspected it myself and it was clean! He wanted to charge me 750.00 to clean it! I told him he was out of his mind! I would expect that a company like yours would employ honest people! You lost my business from now on!
October 28, 2017 5
Very nice job, the house smells better (or doesn't smell at all). And the furnace works better too.

October 14, 2015 5
Brian did a wonderful job explaining the entire process of taking his time is showing us things of interest that we might need to look out for in our home. Brian also took the time to explain the optional airfield hate that we could use an attached your furnace which we decided to purchase hopefully this will help quite a bit. He was a delight to work with and we are very thankful for all his help and great service

You could improve upon little lowering your price because there are other companies too who are charging almost the same price. Also, if you could lower price of furnace cleaning.
April 22, 2014 4.5
The duct cleaning was great. I also ordered hookups of my washer and dryer with A1 in Beaverton, OR which was to include bringing new supply lines and a drain hose for the washer. After verifying twice this would be done with A1 on their direct office line, they called the day of the install to say they didn't do hoses and didn't have them. So, I don't have a working laundry in my house until I get the hoses myself. Why did they say they could do it? What a let down.
March 21, 2014 4.8
There was some lint still visible on the outside of the duct but hopefully the entire duct was cleaned all the way to the roof rather than just down to the wall.wallet
March 07, 2014 5
I would recommend Sears duct cleaning/dryer cleaning service to anyone.
March 07, 2014 4.5
Both Dalton and James were professional and extraordinarily respectful. Dalton took the time to explain a few tips around caring for my HVAC system, which was very much appreciated. I need a little time to determine whether the cleaning meets my expectations, as I "live" with it, I will understand those results. I can't speak highly enough of Dalton and James. Thank you.
February 20, 2014 5
I will have to wait and see if the the duct cleaning does make a difference. I would also prefer if the contact person would explain in detail all the possibilities of what extra expenses or extra work might be recommended. I trusted the technicians' knoledge, but did not know if all that was recommended was truly necessary.
December 16, 2013 5
Technicians were friendly, courteous, and professional. They removed or covered shoes before entering my home, they cleaned up after the job was completed, and answered my questions concerning future duct cleaning. Thank you.
December 16, 2013 5
The mission was carried out successfully! So I would like the same guys to return and maintenance my furnace also.
November 29, 2013 4
The lead HVAC technician is great but the cleaning crew left a dense in my wall.
November 15, 2013 5

October 28, 2013 5
Servicemen were both very friendly and courteous. I have recommended Sears to others for air duct cleaning.
October 28, 2013 4
The customer service representative failed to explain/mention the disinfectant spray application available with the duct cleaning process during the phone order .
October 14, 2013 5
Would provide a demonstration via picture or hand wipe of the duct before and after cleaning.
July 11, 2013 5
Jeff and Santiago took extra effort and time to check the duct system in the attic and on the roof to determine how to handle the elbows in the duct system. If needed in the future, I would like these two to provide the service. Very courteous.
May 09, 2013 5
This was actually a follow-up to duct cleaning and booster fan installation done last fall. The fan had stopped working and I had the Bham ofc. to come out and get it back in sync.....all was done very fast and by folks that I liked meeting last fall and enjoyed seeing them again. I will have to say that calling your Atlanta call center is not what I will do in the future...I will call Jaren at the Bham ofc for good service. My experiences with the center has not been the best but the Bham folks are wonderful and that's all that counts. Thank you Sears.
April 22, 2013 5
Both technicians were very curteous and friendly. I especially liked the fact that they let me know that I would need to change the air duct soon due to age. I would definitely recommend this service to friends/family.
April 08, 2013 5
Why can't duct cleaning and carpet cleaning be done by the same crew, as it was in the past? It's inconvenient to have to book two separate appointments.
April 08, 2013 5
The two technicians were very personable and knowledge. Would recommend to anyone Sears Duct Cleaning. Thank you . I hope that this help my allergies. Thank you again
April 08, 2013 4.8
Specialist David explained and showed me exactly what he had to do. My simple cleaning got a tad complicated and I found out my dryer hose was disconnected, but it was reconnected and the duct was cleaned. I am happy to now have my dryer back to working order.
April 08, 2013 4
If the technications just make sure the furnace is turned back on before leaving. That was a cold night without no heat. Other than that good job.
March 21, 2013 5
This service set me back a few bucks but I already feel a difference with the heat flow thank you Sears crew
March 07, 2013 5
I've already recommended Sears Air Duct cleaning to my friends, this was our first time using the company and I was very happy with the service and price. Thank you!
February 20, 2013 5
Nothing. Your technician was very polite and helpful. Incidentally, I called Sears rather than one of the many duct cleaners that advertise because I felt I would have someone I could trust to be in my home.
November 29, 2012 4.8
The technicians were not able to clean our air duct system due to lack of access and size contraints. However,Chris, the technician was very helpful in informing us and making recommendations. The technicians did clean our heating unit. They were thorough, professional and friendly.
November 15, 2012 5
The fellows who did our duct cleaning were great. They did a great job and were very personable. Thanks.
September 27, 2012 3.5
We were surprised that our $99.00 air duct cleaning turned into a $350 ADDITIONAL cleaning of our system. While we understood the reasoning behind the cleaning, we do not understand why it cost so much since we watched them spray an aerosol chemical that was supposed to "melt" the dirt. We would likely look for a cheaper alternative next time, however the guys that came seemed to have done a good job.
August 26, 2012 5
Our technician was extremely kind and courteous. He explained the procedure very well and cleaned up well after he was done with his work. The furnace and air ducts looked significantly better than before and there was a noticeable difference in the performance of our HVAC system.
July 25, 2012 5
I had a very satifying experience with the technicians doing my air duct cleaning. I knew every little about the process and it was explained very well and understandable. My house was a mess because I was also getting a carpet cleaning the same day, so furniture was moved around for that, some of it was in the way for the tech's, they moved it and cleaned up after. My air works better and I sure can tell the difference in air quality.THANK YOU very much... Sear's Your air duct cleaning Technician's do a wonderful job! I will surely contact SEARS again for cleaning services...
April 22, 2012 5
Nothing to improve on, but since this was my first time for duct cleaning, the details were explained up front so I was comfortable with the process. Very well done!
February 20, 2012 4.8
The guys were very rushed at the end. Didn't fix cold air duct settings as promised - forgot to replace piano. Other than that, I was very satisfied.
January 05, 2012 5
I already recommended Sears air duct cleaning to all my friends and family. Job well done

You’d Be Surprised What’s Lurking In Your Home’s Air Duct System

According to the National Air Duct Cleaner’s Association (NADCA), a typical six-room home creates over 40 pounds of dust annually through everyday living. In addition, the typical family generates a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants such as dander, dirt and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 50 to 70 times per day on average. Over time, this re-circulation can cause a build-up of contaminants in the air duct work.
