Consumers are becoming mindful of indoor air quality, creating demand for HVAC and air duct cleaning professionals
When it comes to the air we breathe, Americans are waking up to the link between their indoor air quality and their overall quality of life.
In fact, air pollution also happens indoors and has been linked to headaches, dizziness and fatigue, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Whether you are at home or work, the bacteria, mold and dust inside your HVAC duct work is invisible, but can contribute greatly to health issues if they aren’t cleaned regularly.
This is exactly why the HVAC restoration industry generates more than $97 billion annually, per IBIS World. Poor indoor air quality can worsen symptoms for the millions of people who suffer from respiratory diseases such as asthma, and can even lead to the development of respiratory issues in young children who are exposed to polluted air at home or school.
Ultimately, the business opportunity is unlimited as every home and place of business relies on clean air to breathe easily. For far too long, consumers have only thought of indoor air quality when their HVAC system isn’t producing enough heat or cold air. As more and more consumers focus on improving their overall health, as well as their home environments, indoor air quality will become paramount.
What Makes DUCTZ the HVAC Cleaning Business to Invest In?
As the nation’s leading air duct and HVAC cleaning franchise, DUCTZ specializes in helping home and property owners improve their indoor air quality. Our menu of services includes air duct cleaning, exhaust cleaning, dryer vent cleaning, duct sealing and more. With a commitment to expert work and putting our customers’ needs first, our HVAC cleaning business has not only grown to more than 100 locations across the country, but has also earned a reputation for providing an unmatched value and service to our clients.
At DUCTZ, our franchise owners are trained to meet the highest standards in the booming $97 billion HVAC restoration industry. Even better, we pride ourselves on working to meet the individual needs of each and every client. This is why we utilize industry-leading methods and cutting-edge technology.
“The industry of clean air is really evolving right now,” says Jessica Wicks, Franchise Business Consultant with DUCTZ. “There is a heightened awareness of the air that we breathe and people are more tuned-in to what is going on within their heating and cooling systems, as well as what’s in their air handlers and duct work. So when you’re in a space that is not clean and conditioned, the consequences to your health and sense of well-being can be alarming. DUCTZ exists to solve these problems for property owners.”
How Does DUCTZ Compare to the Competition?
Our fast-growing HVAC cleaning franchise is expanding across the country because we not only provide indoor air solutions that home and property owners rely on to remain healthy, but also because our highly trained teams outshine the competition with our professionalism and exceptional service.
In an industry rife with unreliable independent operators, our thriving air duct and HVAC cleaning franchise prides itself on tailoring our services to the unique needs of every client. At DUCTZ, we also emphasize transparent pricing, follow all industry guidelines, and demonstrate with our before-and-after photos that our technicians are reliable and accountable. Ultimately, our franchise owners are able to cultivate and establish long-lasting relationships with clients based on trust.
“The majority of our work comes in the restoration sector,” Wicks says. “DUCTZ is a service franchise that really focuses on indoor air quality, HVAC restoration, dryer vent cleaning, condenser coil cleaning – services that restoration brands don’t specialize in. So we help to restore the HVAC system back to its natural state, so that it’s in its prime efficiency. So generally, we respond alongside restoration companies to tornadoes, floods, fires, and other disasters. We help restore a home or property and make it safe for home and property owners to live and work in their spaces again.”
