Heat Exchanger fouling in my HVAC system

One cleaning option was to mechanically repair the fouling of the heat exchanger tubes and the other was to chemically clean the heat exchanger tubes

As a single mother it can be hard at times. My husband and I split just a few years ago so trying to do things around the house that I have never done before is hard. Luckily I have a great support system when it comes to doing repairs around my house. My brother is an electrician, my cousin is a plumber and my uncle is an HVAC technician. It is a great thing that I have my uncle to come and check out my HVAC system a lot. My uncle is practically a saint because he has saved me from being stranded in a snowstorm and on a very humid day due to my air conditioning and furnace breaking on me. I have never been so happy for someone to come and repair my HVAC system. Just recently my heat exchanger began to fail. There has been a buildup of deposits in the tube handle that has been making it not work properly. This causes more workload and wasted energy for my HVAC system. This has even made my heat exchanger run poorly and not as efficient as it should be. My HVAC technician has given me multiple options that he could do to fix it. He said that he could either replace the whole heat exchanger or clean it. One cleaning option was to mechanically repair the fouling of the heat exchanger tubes and the other was to chemically clean the heat exchanger tubes. I told him to do what he thought would be the best route to go.
