Are there any health benefits that come from HVAC system cleaning? Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have been shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust and debris. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and work place should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve air quality.
Will HVAC system cleaning reduce our office and home energy bills? Research by the U.S. EPA has demonstrated that HVAC system cleaning may allow system to run more efficiently by removing debris from sensitive mechanical components. Clean, efficient systems are less likely to break down, have a longer life span, and generally operate more effectively than dirty system.
How often should HVAC system be cleaned?
Frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the customer. Some of the things that may lead a customer to consider more frequent cleaning include:
Smokers in the office and household
Water contamination of damage to the home or HVAC system
Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander
Residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollution in the office and home’s HVAC system
