I agree completly-Having over 30 years experience in the HVAC industry in the southeast .If there is a problem with an air distibution system, such as mold or mildew, then this problem needs to be resolved,then the ducts need to be cleaned or replaced. A system that is operating normally rarely needs duct cleaning.



This whole series of podcasts seems to be little more than superficial promotional material for the companies that are advertising services to Angie's list members. In this case, air duct cleaning has become a popular, high-profit-generating business opportunity for companies that also do carpet cleaning or HVAC work. They're selling to the classic American fears about cleanliness. I had my air duct system cleaned one time, 10 years after the house was built, when my HVAC system was being replaced. The cleaner, who was recommended by my HVAC company, did a great job, but was honest about telling me that the ducts were not very dirty, and I certainly don't need to have it done every few years. As long as you have good quality filtration on your HVAC system, regularly replace filters, and vacuum out your registers periodically, professional duct cleaning is a waste of money
