duct cleaning:  a good thing?

Most people are aware that indoor air pollution is an issue of growing concern and increased visibility. Many companies market products and services intended to improve the quality of your indoor air. You have most likely seen an advertisement, received a coupon, or been approached by a company offering to clean your air ducts as a means of improving your home's indoor air quality. These services typically range from $450 to $1,000 per heating and cooling system, depending on the services offered and the size of the system.

It is normal for the return registers to get dusty as dust-laden air is pulled through the grate. This does not indicate that your air ducts are contaminated with heavy deposits of dust or debris; the registers can be easily vacuumed or removed and cleaned.  Many people consider having their air ducts cleaned simply because it seems logical that air ducts will get dirty over time and should occasionally be cleaned.  Duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. Nor do studies conclusively demonstrate that particle (e.g., dust) levels in homes increase because of dirty air ducts or go down after cleaning. This is because much of the dirt that may accumulate inside air ducts adheres to duct surfaces and does not enter the living space.

Additionally, many service providers fail to follow proper duct cleaning procedures and can actually cause indoor air problems. For example, an inadequate vacuum collection system can release more dust, dirt, and other contaminants than if you had left the ducts alone. A careless or inadequately trained service provider can damage your ducts or heating and cooling system, possibly increasing your heating and air conditioning costs.
