AIR DUCT CLEANING EQUIPMENT COSTS

If you are an air duct cleaning contractor that uses electric portable vacuum collection systems or are thinking about electric portable vacuum collection systems you should look at both parts of the cost equation.  Part 1 is the first cost or the initial purchase price with shipping.  Part 2 is the cost of operating the equipment over time.  In some cases the operating cost over a 5 or 10 year life span will be more than the purchase price so it’s important that you understand both parts of the cost equation.

The operating cost of electric portable vacuum collection systems is primarily the cost of filter replacement.  You need to look at both the cost of the filter(s) and the frequency at which they need to be replaced.  The cost of the filter(s) is easy to determine but the frequency of replacement is not easy to determine.  Frequency of replacement is dependent on hours of usage.  The more you use the equipment the more frequent you will have to change the filters.

Let’s look at an example of three units to illustrate how the filter replacement cost affects total cost.  We have assumed average usage and made sure the equipment packages offer the same items and accessories (flex hoses, power cords, etc.).
