American Fresh Ducts / Waste of time and money
I responded to American Fresh Ducts ad in a mailer for a $75 "Duct Package." They "open, agitate & vacuum the entire duct work under negative pressure." Consisted of 1 man who looked at the job while man #2 did all they work. They hooked up a large vacuum to one duct in kitchen, while using a small canister vacuum to do the rest of the registers. I do that every time I vacuum a room! The main man's job seemed to be to talk me into additional work.
They turned on the heater (it was in July and heater hadn't been on for months). He asked if I smelled anything and I said no. He explained it was very bad-the smell of burnt dust. He came in the room to show me dust on his finger and said the furnace desperately needed cleaning, which would be an additional $500. When I said no, he then said I should have an electrostatic filter for $95 or all of the work would be in vain. He was extremely pushy. He also tried to talk me into having a cleaner applied to ducts for another $100 or so.
I feel like such an idiot for falling for this scam.
