There are some naysayers who say HVAC cleaning, especially the ductwork, is unnecessary because there isn’t any evidence that it makes a difference to indoor air quality. It is difficult to understand why any dust or debris in a home is not something you’d want to avoid if you could. This is particularly true if someone in your home has a respiratory condition or autoimmune disorder. You can’t have “too clean” air so taking care of HVAC cleaning regularly simply makes sense.
The reality is that as the air is circulated through your HVAC system, whatever is in the air is recirculating roughly six times, and that can lead to buildup in the ductwork and vents. HVAC cleaning resolves that so it isn’t also recirculated through your home. It is also a misconception that the filters handle it all. They don’t, especially if they are not replaced regularly. Without HVAC cleaning you’ll also be spending more time dusting each week.
Another benefit of HVAC cleaning is energy savings. When there are contaminants in the HVAC system, the equipment has to work harder to do its job. That means higher utility costs and a reduced lifespan of the HVAC unit. You can face early replacement or at least more repair costs over the years.
