What Are My Startup Costs & Fees?

DUCTZ is an affordable franchise opportunity in a fast-growing industry

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, and it’s no secret that poor indoor air quality can result in adverse health effects and aggravate existing respiratory issues. As more and more Americans become aware of the link between indoor air quality and well-being, having their HVAC and air ducts routinely cleaned becomes a necessary part of life, which is why the HVAC industry generates more than $97 billion annually, according to IBIS World.

This is why DUCTZ, the nation’s leading air duct and HVAC cleaning franchise, is such a compelling opportunity. Our franchisees and their teams are some of the most highly trained, competent and professional individuals – and in a service that requires technicians to visit places where people live and work, a level of professionalism really matters. DUCTZ also offers a comprehensive menu of services that help home and property owners improve indoor air quality and prevent fires, resulting in multiple recurring revenue streams that offer the potential for long-term growth.

“We wrote the standards that are utilized nationwide for the proper way to do air duct cleaning – we patented the process” says Ken Osness, Vice President of Franchise Development with BELFOR Franchise Group. “Everyday people are dealing with indoor air quality issues. When a disaster occurs, such as a fire or a flood, there’s a lot of opportunities for entrepreneurs to do well with a brand that leads the rest of the industry.”

As part of BELFOR Franchise Group, one of the leading franchises in the restoration and cleaning segments, DUCTZ benefits from a turn-key business model and the full support of industry experts who want to help you thrive in business. Because of that commitment, we have kept the initial and ongoing costs of ownership low. The total investment for owning a DUCTZ franchise ranges from $169,637-$235,872, which makes us one of the most affordable opportunities in the fast-growing home services industry.

Financing is a great way to make franchising affordable. BELFOR Franchise Group has relationships with third-party lenders to help make owning a business affordable. Being a part of BELFOR Franchise Group also has the added advantage of making lenders feel comfortable and loaning money to a brand with a track record of success.
