Your HVAC system is vital for supplying fresh, climate-controlled air to your Aberdeen, North Carolina, home. While the rest of your home gets cleaned on a regular basis, your HVAC system actually needs to be cleaned as well to continue functioning optimally. Here are three advantages to having your HVAC system professionally cleaned.

Improved IAQ

IAQ stands for indoor air quality. Having a high IAQ is imperative for home comfort and health, especially if you have family members with sensitive lungs. Debris can build up in your HVAC system, which means it’s getting into your air supply and reducing your indoor air quality.

Unwanted contaminants that enter your HVAC system can range from irritants, such as pollen and dust, to harmful bacteria and other biological detritus. Professional cleaning can remove this and more from your system, improving your IAQ.

Less Dust

Dust is annoying, so it’s important to keep its levels under control. Dusting is a great start, but it isn’t always enough. If you have a lot of dust in your HVAC system, it’ll circulate through your house more easily. The filters in your system do a good job of keeping dust out when it’s introduced through the air. However, buildup in the system itself can still be spread throughout your home, undermining even the best dusting attempts.

A professional cleaning can reduce dust buildup in your system. It can also help target issue areas where dust may be getting into your system and bypassing the filter.

Increased Efficiency

Any sort of debris inside your HVAC system can actually affect its overall efficiency. Your HVAC system has to be able to push air through your home via the ductwork. If your ducts are clogged with debris and pollutants, it can be harder for your system to get air through. This leads to your compressor running harder and longer than it should, causing utility bills to climb. A good cleaning can help restore efficiency and get your bills back to where they should be.
