Over the course of the year, a normal household generates 40 pounds of dust. Some of this will settle into the ductwork. However, every home or business is unique, so many other factors contribute to clogged ductwork. The presence of furry pets, high pollen counts, renovation projects, smoking, the use of chemicals, and water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system are a few examples of dust or debris-generating situations that all affect ductwork over time. They are all justifications as to why air ducts should be cleaned.

Research by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has demonstrated that HVAC system cleaning may allow systems to run more efficiently by removing debris from sensitive mechanical components, including compressors and coils. Clean, efficient systems are less likely to break down, have a longer life span, and generally operate more effectively than dirty systems.

Frequency of cleaning for both commercial and residential HVAC systems depends upon multiple factors. The following situations may require more frequent cleanings.

  • Smoking in the building.
  • Water contamination or damage to the building or HVAC system.
  • Family or employees with allergies or asthma.
  • Recent renovation or remodeling.
  • Upcoming move into a new home or building.
  • Preference of the owner.
  • Presence of furry animals.
