BLOG 15 Kent Hudson of Airdrie Furnace and Duct Cleaning

I met Kent this fall when he and his crew cleaned our duct work, getting ready for winter. They arrived when scheduled, were polite, professional and I paid¬† of much less than what I did the last time I got our ducts clean which was a couple years ago, based on the cost I was shy to revisit the service. I’m so glad I reached out to them, they did a fantastic job! Kent and I had a great conversation in my kitchen about the challenges of google and the hustle of local companies to show up on the first page of google searchs. SEO and P.O. boxes for companies to circumvent the actual city they are based in was just the tip of the iceberg. Naturally his participation in our directory comes from his understanding of what we are trying to accomplish for the business community. Kent is a smart business man. You can see this by the recent rebranding he did in July of 2017. Kent originally started his furnace cleaning business under Airdrie EnerClean and operated as such since 2009. This is a great collaboration story so pay attention. Both companies involved were providing such great work and service that they were referring business to each other with confidence. Based on this trusting relationship they decided to align more with name and branding. They are two seperate companies that trust each other and feel a responsibility to uphold their end of excellent service and work as its reflective of both of them. Kent had nothing but kind and glowing things to say about Jason Genovy of Airdrie Air and I admire two companies that can see their strength only grow from this collaboration.
Business is booming and Kent confirmed 500 Airdrie residential homes used their services in 2018 and are aiming for 750 next year, with that growth we see a growth in their team as well. Kent was very transparent and honest with his pricing structure. They use a flat rate based on square footage rather than by vent or such as they like streamlining the invoicing so that what they quote is exactly what you pay. He stated the only time there has ever been a variance is because the owner decided to replace a filter for furnace or a humidifier filter as well through them rather than going to purchase one themselves and install. They may have also decided to get their dryer vent done while they are there if they never have had it looked at before. My husband is a firefighter so he checks our dryer vent regularly since he is all too aware of the dangers if the vent does get blocked. PSA for you home owners, get it checked if you haven’t within the last year. Kent advised cleaning your duct work does not need to be a seasonal job, the more you avoid the busy season the greater the savings you will experience. Clean ducts in the spring and summer will be just as clean in the fall and winter when you turn furnace back on. I didn’t realize that. If you own a home and understand how duct cleanings will prolong the life of your furnace, consider Airdrie Furnace and Duct Cleaning. A little birdie may have mentioned a great sale for this service coming up real soon.¬†
