3 Reasons Regular HVAC Cleaning is Important

by Niv Orlian on Dec 20, 2016

Maybe you are moving into a new home that uses an HVAC system for the first time, or perhaps you have had an HVAC system in your home for years, but are unsure what type of maintenance and cleaning is required. It's easy to understand the confusion – after all, a properly running HVAC system doesn't require much human interaction at all. Many people forget that the heat and air-conditioning in their home is coming through a complex system of vents, running all throughout their house.

Regular cleaning – meaning a thorough cleaning by a professional service every two years or so – is highly recommended so that your HVAC system can continue functioning the way it should. Here are the three main reasons this periodic maintenance is so important.

Indoor Air Quality

The air in your home can quickly become polluted with all sorts of microscopic matter. Have you ever smoked out your kitchen while seasoning a cast-iron pan? Did you use your fireplace in all this winter? Does your cat shed like crazy? Do you live in an area where there is a lot of tree or grass pollen? Smoke, dust, cat dander, pollen, and of course bacteria and viruses can remain suspended in the air in your home. Air ducts which are not properly cleaned can wind up becoming reservoirs for these unseen irritants.

If you have someone in your home who suffers from asthma or allergies, or if you have noticed that your family tends to suffer from the common cold more regularly than other families do, the problem may be the quality of the air in your home. A professional cleaning can help purify the air in your home, and keeping up a regular cleaning schedule can help keep it that way.

Energy Efficiency

Your HVAC unit is working to push air all throughout your house. Some larger houses may even have two separate HVAC units alongside their home – one to handle upstairs, and one to handle downstairs. These are very powerful machines, and they are built to keep you cool all summer, and keep you warm all winter, but the longer you go between cleanings, the harder you are making those machines work.

When dust, lint, and debris piles up along the ductwork of your home, your HVAC units have to work harder to force the same amount of air through your events. This may mean that the HVAC unit needs to run longer than it usually does, draw more electricity, or switch on more frequently than it would if it were properly maintained.

There may be a noticeable reduction in your energy costs after a thorough professional cleaning.

Extend the Life of Your HVAC System

An efficiently running system is not overworking itself, meaning that your system will have a much longer life. Not only that, but scheduling regular cleaning and maintenance means that a professional is going over your system with a fine tooth comb. If there are any small fixes, or potential problems which can be spotted before they become big problems, you will be able to keep the system you have for much longer.

Professional duct cleaning services help homeowners keep their HVAC systems in good working order, and keep the air in their homes free from pollutants and irritants. If it has been a while since you have had a professional cleaning, or if you are unsure that professional cleaning has ever taken place, begin asking around for recommendations for trusted HVAC cleaning professionals. You will never regret properly maintaining your heating and air-conditioning system.
