Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do we offer free estimates?
Yes. Tampa Air Systems offers free, over the phone estimates for Residential Air Duct Cleaning and Residential Dryer Vent Services. Air Duct Cleaning cost is based on our flat rate pricing and the number of supply vents (vents that blow out air) and return vents (vent that take in air) that are located in the property. We charge a flat rate for Dryer Vent Cleaning for both one and two story homes. Service addresses above the 2nd floor will require an estimate.
2. Do you charge by the hour?
No. We only offer flat rate pricing. The price listed in your estimate is the Tampa Air Systems flat rate price you get, even if it takes us longer to correctly complete the job.
3. Are there other charges hidden in my estimate?
Never. Tampa Air Systems offers up front pricing. Based on the information you give us, we formulate your air duct cleaning and dryer vent service quote. The price never changes unless more or less vents are accounted for. However, Tampa Air Systems may offer other products and services that may be of benefit to your overall indoor air quality and HVAC System. There may be additional charges for any products or services you choose to add to your original estimate.
4. What is NADCA?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association is a non-profit organization committed to publishing standards for safety, evaluation, and cleaning of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning ducts. They also offer several certifications for HVAC companies and professionals, as well as maintain an anti-fraud task force.
5. Why is it important to choose a NADCA Certified Company?
When done correctly, HVAC cleaning is a very beneficial service for your home or business. NADCA’s dedication to quality assurance helps ensure and promote a higher standard of performance for all of its members. A company must meet strict requirements in order to be a member of NADCA.
The company must:
· Have at least one NADCA certified Air Systems Cleaning Specialist (ASCS) on staff.
· Maintain General Liability insurance.
· Agree to clean according to ACR, the NADCA Standards.
· Comply with NADCA's Code of Ethics.
· If a company is not going to clean according to NADCA's standards, this must be communicated to the buyer at the time of sale.
These requirements were established to provide a higher level of assurance to consumers.
