The Costs of Cleaning vs. Ignoring Your HVAC Air Ducts

You may be wondering if it is really necessary to clean your HVAC air ducts. Some people don’t even consider cleaning parts of their house or business that they can’t see. Cleaning your HVAC ducts every three to five years is a lot more important than you think. 

Cleaning your HVAC ducts keeps your entire HVAC system working optimally, but it may have a big impact on your health as well. Not cleaning your ducts can lead to increased amounts of dust, mold, and bacteria on surfaces and in the air, and can also lead to costly repairs if debris buildup causes the system to malfunction. Extra particulates can wreak havoc on your respiratory system. Increased illness in the workplace can have people out of work and hinder productivity. Extra trips to the doctor for air pollution-related illness means more medical costs. People who have allergies or asthma are at an even higher risk of becoming ill due to toxins in the air or on surfaces.

Never underestimate the importance of clean air for one’s health. Air inside the office is recirculated over and over, so without clean ducts the irritants are always there waiting to attack. For all of your HVAC needs, contact MaintenX today. We are here to help.
