An HVAC unit plays a key role in keeping your home’s temperature feeling comfortable. Keeping your unit well-maintained by keeping it clean can help you avoid issues and even improve the efficiency of your system. Typically, it’s a good idea to clean your HVAC unit at least once a year, whether it’s during the fall or spring season. However, you may need to clean your unit more often due to several factors.
Here are a few of the biggest factors impacting how often you will need to clean your HVAC unit.
Size of the Unit
Larger HVAC units in commercial buildings need to be cleaned more often than residential units due to their size and frequency of use. Generally, it’s recommended to schedule cleanings twice a year for commercial units. On the other hand, it’s usually fine to only clean your residential HVAC unit once per year.
The environment also makes influences how often you will need to clean your unit. For example, an HVAC unit in an area with an excessive amount of dust or any other pollutants will need to be cleaned more often. It’s also a good idea to clean your unit more often if the area has high humidity to help prevent mold or mildew.
Indoor Air Quality
The quality of your indoor air can be negatively impacted if you don’t clean your HVAC unit on a yearly basis. Poor indoor air quality is especially problematic if you suffer from allergies or if you or someone in your household has asthma. Staying proactive by cleaning your HVAC unit each year can help you avoid these issues.
