HVAC Cleaning Services Market Outlook (2022-2032)

The global HVAC cleaning services market exhibited a growth rate of 3.5% during the historical period of 2017-2021 and reached a market valuation of US$ 11.4 billion in 2022. During the forecast period 2022-2032, the market is predicted to expand at a CAGR of 4.3% and reach US$ 17.4 billion by the end of 2032.

HVAC cleaning services accounted for around 10% share of total enterprise spending on maintenance and cleaning services, which, over the coming years, is likely to experience a momentary transition. HVAC companies are providing cleaning and maintenance services as a bundled package, and as a result, separate spending by enterprises is shrinking.

Cleaned and properly maintained HVAC systems lead to lower carbon emissions into the environment and can conserve energy more efficiently, thereby creating lucrative opportunities for HVAC cleaning service providers. As HVAC systems account for 40% of all carbon emissions, timely cleaning will limit carbon emissions across the world.

Additionally, regular cleaning of HVAC systems reduces the risk of transmitted diseases that can occur from waste-generated pests, rodents, and others that makes a home in the ducts. Also, ducts full of dust and dander can result in respiratory illnesses and allergic reactions in infants, elders, and those already suffering from breathing issues.

In the short term, the market is expected to expand significantly with the utility of antimicrobial chemicals that ensure sanitization and disinfection processes in the cleaning of HVAC systems.

Continuous growth in population and rising urbanization are resulting in significant development of infrastructure and buildings with installed HVACs. This factor is expected to stimulate the need for HVAC cleaning services. Strict regulations regarding the reduction of carbon emissions and energy conservation, along with growing awareness regarding the utility of HVAC cleaning services to avoid allergies, respiratory diseases, and others, are expected to drive market growth in the long run.

What are the Key factors Ensuring the Growth of HVAC Cleaning Services?

“Increasing Installation of HVAC Systems”

HVAC systems have commendable utility in the residential and commercial sectors as they help in maintaining good indoor air quality through appropriate ventilation and filtration and offer greater thermal comfort.

  • According to the Energy Information Association, around 87% of U.S. homes have air conditioning, with 75% installed with central AC units.

With the increasing installation of HVAC systems worldwide, demand for HVAC cleaning services is expected to rise at a significant rate. HVAC cleaning service providers ensure improved air quality, air free from airborne particles, and increased energy & power efficiency.

Residential & building owners are highly benefited from HVAC cleaning services; they avoid the excessive cost incurred in the repair & maintenance of HVAC systems, which prominently ensures the longer lifecycle of HVAC systems.

“Technological Innovation in HVAC Cleaning Services”

HVAC cleaning services have gained immense popularity to ensure the good health of these systems as well as their users. A plethora of mechanisms are been utilized these days to keep HVAC systems healthy.

The utility of UV light is one of the trending processes of microbial control to deal with mold spores or bacteria that accumulate in HVAC ducts, ventilation, and other internal components. Also, robotics cleaning solutions are being opted for in place of traditional pressurized air solutions to clean the ducts. Robots are equipped with cameras, lights, bristles, and brushes placed inside the complex ducts, which then perform far more comprehensive hygienic cleaning than pressurized air.  

Additionally, the global spread of COVID-19 impacted the utility of antimicrobial chemicals that ensure sanitization, deodorization, and disinfection altogether in the cleaning of HVAC systems, avoiding microbial contamination.

How is Demand for HVAC Cleaning Services Being Adversely Affected?

“Lack of Skilled Professionals & High Cost of HVAC Cleaning Services”

Old buildings & infrastructures with complex HVAC designs are expected to restrict the demand for HVAC cleaning services as inappropriate ducting & ventilation makes it difficult for a cleaner to clean the space.

Lack of skilled professionals for HVAC cleaning services may hamper market growth as well. Unskilled professionals with lower training can damage the duct and other essential components of HVAC systems. Moreover, cleaning large & complex HVAC systems installed in the industrial & commercial sectors require industrial-grade specialized equipment, which results in the high cost of HVAC cleaning services for customers.
