About Us



Better Air Quality is licensed and insured and are the leading Air Duct Cleaning Service for residents and commercial businesses on Long Island, New York. Better Air Quality is in compliance with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standards for safety and is a member of the NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association). We use only the best EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered products to protect human health and the environment. With Better Air Quality we understand quality matters and we are fully certified duct cleaning company that has been serving the areas of the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, New York City and Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk Counties).

That was the beginning of Better Air Quality. The Founder spent months researching the country for equipment (no Internet then) and researching techniques that others had come up with for cleaning air ducts. The Founder settled on a vacuum truck built in Pennsylvania for cleaning furnaces. He then modified the truck for cleaning air ducts and then had to go about teaching himself how to clean air ducts.

In 1999 Better Air Quality Inc. of NY was formed and opened up for business in NY. For our first 3 years in business we were the only company in NY cleaning air ducts. At the time, homeowners and commercial buildings just didn’t get their air ducts cleaned. They had never done it before, why do it now? Virtually every call we received was from a customer asking us “Why should I clean my air ducts?”

We stuck with it, educated the public on the need to clean their air ducts and now almost everyone understands the importance of having a clean air duct system delivering air into their home or commercial building.

Over the years Better Air Quality has continued to innovate and advance the industry. Our techniques and skills developed over the course of performing thousands of jobs. We have always put a tremendous amount of our resources into building bigger and better equipment, new tools and developing new techniques to improve our services.

The way we clean air ducts and HVAC systems now doesn’t even resemble the way we cleaned systems in our early years.

Better Air Quality is still a local family owned NY company. We have been in the business of cleaning air ducts and HVAC systems for over 30 years now. We are a heating and air conditioning contractor that specializes in cleaning air ducts, air handlers, furnaces, air conditioners and coils in homes, commercial buildings, schools, health care facilities and more. Over the last 30 years Better Air Quality has cleaned the air ducts and air handlers in over 100,000 buildings.

The name Better Air Quality comes from our powerful Better Air Quality Trucks that we custom build to meet our stringent specifications. We have always believed that the key to professionally cleaning heating and air conditioning systems is to have tremendous suction power. No other air duct cleaning vacuum trucks or portable equipment even comes close to generating the type of suction power the Better Air Quality Truck will produce.

There simply is no substitute for experience. There is a lot more to performing a professional air duct cleaning than most people know. Better Air Quality has been cleaning commercial and residential air duct systems for over 30 years. In that time we have cleaned the air ducts in over 100,000 buildings. Through those years of experience we have learned how to successfully clean the heating and air conditioning systems in any size or configuration of building. It takes many years to gain the knowledge to perfect the air duct cleaning process. Most of our competitors are cleaning systems the way we did 30 years ago!

Training and Certifications

Our technicians undergo extensive training. Many of our competitors train their employees for 1 or 2 days and then send them out to clean air ducts in homes and buildings. At Better Air Quality, our employees work as an apprentice assisting one of our technicians for an average of 1 year before they are even ready to go through our Technician Training Program. We make sure that our technicians understand every facet of our service before we ever send them to your home or building. What makes our technicians unique and more qualified than those at other companies is that ours are trained on how to be heating and air conditioning service professionals who know how to clean systems. Other companies only train their technicians using a very limited process that falls well short of our thorough training . It has always been our belief at Better Air Quality that in order to thoroughly clean an HVAC system you need to fully disassemble a system, and that takes skills that a typical air duct cleaning technician doesn’t have. Our technicians are trained on furnaces and air conditioners, how they function, how to troubleshoot them, how to repair them and how to insure they are running safely.

Complete System Cleaning

When you hire Better Air Quality to clean your heating and air conditioning systems, we clean the entire system. Our standard service includes cleaning the full length of the supply air ducts, the full length of the return air ducts and we also clean the entire furnace and air handler. Our furnace cleaning includes cleaning the blower, heat exchanger, burners and all the surfaces that the air passes over. We even clean the evaporator coil. This is something that other companies don’t include. For instance, in order to clean a blower it is necessary that the technician removes the blower from the furnace cabinet. This requires skills that most duct cleaning technicians don’t have. Our technicians are HVAC techs and they have the necessary skills to remove a blower from a furnace. When we clean the air ducts we clean the duct from the point the air enters your building, all the way back to the origin of the air duct, at the air handler.

Iron Clad Guaranty

People want to know that when a contractor performs work for them, they will stand behind their work. Better Air Quality excels at that. We give 100% attention to any complaints or questions that arise from our service. We go out of our way to make sure our customers are satisfied with our work. We never take money from customers who aren’t completely satisfied with our service. If anyone ever has an issue with Better Air Quality, they can be totally confident that we will make it right. That is how we have always conducted business and always will.
