Depending on how big your HVAC system is, it ranges from $200 to north of a thousand dollars in total. The price changes since it depend on how many returns you have, how many supplies, do your dampers or registers, where the HVAC or furnace is located, and of course - How long are your air ducts. Size does matter in this case.
Air duct cleaning takes anywhere between an hour and a full day (or more, in commercial HVAC systems cleaning). A standard air duct cleaning would be two to three hours and would cover the HVAC unit, the main return, the vents in the rooms and the air ducts themselves. If the air ducts spread on more than one floor, they'd require more time to be properly cleaned.
Air duct cleaning needs to take place every three to five years. However, if you have reasons to get the HVAC system cleaned more often, like a pet with lots of hair or a recent renovation, maybe it's time to do it now and not wait more. Moreover, if you are moving to a new house, air duct cleaning is a must.
There are several reasons to have your air ducts cleaned.

However, a certified NADCA technician with good knowledge and experience will be able to provide the service to any commercial property.
