My AC unit that's on my roof is making a funny noise (Rattling) I'm not sure if it's been serviced in the past we just bought this house in Nov. Of 2015 We were told it was a new unit

I am looking for a rough estimate on how much it would cost to clean the ducts and vents in my home, as well as my heating and A/C unit tuned up and serviced. My home is approximately 820 sq. feet. I have one return duct, 1 in each of the rooms(2), (1) in the restroom, (1) in the kitchen, and (1) in the living room. So (1) return and (5) vents total. I also have round plastic ducts, not the metal kind. Please email me with any information. I am looking to get this done once I have the money. I know that I am in need of duct cleaning because it's been 6 years since I've moved in, and it smells like dust coming out of the vents when I turn on the A/C and heater in the rooms.
