Air Duct Cleaning in Cypress, The Woodlands, Sugar Land, Pearland, Houston, TX, and the Surrounding Areas
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, properly cleaning an entire system in an average-sized home may typically range in cost from $450 to $1,000. However, there are several factors that affect cost and time estimates:
- the type of ductwork
- system size
- system accessibility
- number of crew members required
- level of contamination
- environmental factors
A system generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of one forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.
The EPA suggests using a NADCA certified company.
While Power Vac America, NADCA certified, can’t give you an estimate online because we first need to know about your specific building and about your special needs and requirements, we can provide an estimate over the phone in most cases. We don’t use low-priced offers to get you hooked and change the price when we arrive. Power Vac America only provides the best HVAC system cleaning in accordance with the NADCA standards that includes the entire interior of your air conditioning system. Once we have discussed your specifics we can provide an estimate over the phone (residential projects only).
Residential: Your price should range between $775 and $1000 per air conditioning system.
Commercial: In most cases, a site visit is required.
Beware of advertisements that have “whole house specials” for very low prices. Many of them only include only 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.

What is NADCA
NADCA, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association was formed in 1989 to institute industry standards and credentialing programs for the HVAC industry.
Their Assessment, Cleaning & Restoration (ACR) of HVAC System 2021 Standard, is the standard that Power Vac America uses on all projects, both residential and commercial.
Their Air Systems Cleaning Specialist (ASCS) certification is the test required to recognizing a person’s knowledge and skills related to HVAC system hygiene. In most cases, one of Power Vac America’s ASCS certified technicians will be the lead on your project.
