The most common way is by the number of vents/registers/grilles, which ever is the common terminology in your area.

Most sell add-ons ,sanitizing the ducts, better filters ,or UVC lights,so you need to decide on those before they show upand say, $X off if we do it now, not the best way to make an informed decision.

Check the EPA's website, basically states no proven value to duct cleaning. The fact is they can't remove 100% of duct etc.. I would only take action on ducts if they tested positive for Mold, and then I would replace them ,if accessable.

Sealing ducts is a much better value, see for more info..

Regarding duct cleaning cost, keep in mind they are only air ducts. You don’t eat or sleep on them and you never see them. Cleaning them to near-new condition might be excessive unless you have a mold problem or a medical reason for doing so. If you are like most people, you simply want the dust and dirt out of your air duct system. On the other hand, if you do require a more thorough cleaning, can your air duct cleaner provide that and what does their best type of air duct cleaning cost?

If you have done your homework, and their references have checked out, you should be able to pay $99 or thereabouts, to have ALL the air ducts in your home cleaned. If you decide to go with a rotary brush expect to pay a little more.
