Since the spring of 2020, we’ve all become more aware of how proper indoor air quality affects our health and safety. When the quality of your indoor air is poor, not only do you run the risk of transmitting COVID-19 and other airborne viruses; you may also find yourself breathing in dirt, debris, bacteria, skin cells, and all kinds of other things you don’t want in your body. One of the easiest ways to protect your family, friends, employees, tenants, and yourself from the dangers of unsafe indoor air is to have your HVAC system and ductwork cleaned regularly. For a thorough, expert clean, home and business owners throughout the US and Canada know to call their local DUCTZ franchise.
Who are we?
Since 1989, DUCTZ has been recognized across North America as a leader in the HVAC restoration industry. We’ve earned a sterling reputation for providing efficient HVAC cleaning, maintenance, and restoration services with professionalism and respect for each customer’s property. Thanks to our relationship with BELFOR, the most trusted name in restoration, our HVAC cleaning franchises have the ability to provide the friendly service our customers expect from a local business with the training and resources of a global leader. Independent contractors can’t match the level of service that our HVAC restoration franchises deliver to communities nationwide.
Why Choose an HVAC Franchise
When you’re choosing a franchise opportunity, it’s important to know that your business has a high likelihood of being profitable. To put it simply, home services is a recession-resistant, multimillion dollar industry that is experiencing rapid growth – and showing no signs of slowing! With more property owners focusing on their indoor air quality, our local franchises are seeing higher sales than ever. Many franchises have services booked out months in advance. Even better, opening an HVAC cleaning and restoration franchise also gives you the opportunity to make a positive impact on your community by keeping your neighbors’ indoor air quality healthy and safe.
DUCTZ also offers dryer vent cleaning services keeping customers safe from potential dryer fires. When dryer vents are clean, dryers run more efficiently, lowering utility bills and reducing the risk of damage to clothing and the machine. A clogged dryer vent not only costs home and business owners more money; it also increases the risk of a catastrophic fire. In fact, nearly 17,000 dryer fires occur each year in homes nationwide, leading to hundreds of injuries and over $236 million in property damage. The vast majority of these fires could have been avoided with regular dryer vent cleaning and maintenance.
Because of the necessity of the services we provide, opening and operating an HVAC cleaning and restoration franchise creates a source of recurring revenue for our franchise owners.
