The reason to clean the HVAC system and air pipes is the same as why you wash your house. Think of how much grime will be in the house if it is not washed for like three or five years. Some people wash their houses, but when they clean out the HVAC, they are shocked at what they see. It doesn’t have to be an old house, because even buildings that have just been constructed tend to have debris left behind. Therefore, it is advisable to wash out the system every three to five years.
Filters, no matter how technologically advanced or expensive, cannot completely get out the pollutants that are in the ducts. Furthermore, these pollutants do not always have to go through where the filter is but can get in through other places. When air gets into the filter, it gets drawn in through the furnace and air conditioner. Therefore, each time you turn on the system, the dust that has settled gets shaken up, hence blowing it into your home. Also, when you switch on the heater or the fan, the temperature changes give mold, fungus, and bacteria perfect breeding ground.
