A DIRTY HVAC SYSTEM IS A DANGEROUS HVAC SYSTEM
A dirty HVAC system can present with a number of problems for you and your family. Since a dirty system carries a great deal of bacteria, germs and other types of pollutants, the harm it can cause to your family and air quality is endless. From causing more cold symptoms and respiratory infections to advanced asthma attacks and eye, nose and throat irritations, the complications are many.
The source of the problem stems from the air ducts in your system. When they become clogged with dirt, debris, dander, and other allergens, they become home to mold spores and bacteria. When the air ducts are clogged the blower on your HVAC system will then disburse all the mold and bacteria spores into your living space. This can cause irritation to the lungs and result in such conditions as chronic coughs, bronchitis and even pneumonia over time.
Further, dirty air ducts can lead to ongoing respiratory infections and allergies. The same microbes that cause irritation to your lungs can further irritate your nose and eyes, resulting in allergy attacks that tend to increase when your HVAC system is operating. When the HVAC system is running, the microbes are being circulated throughout the atmosphere in your home causing the ongoing allergies.
Finally, a dirty HVAC system can contribute to asthma attacks. The polluted air in your home and the many contaminants that are floating about the atmosphere as a result of dirty air ducts can make family members’ asthma a whole lot worse and, in some cases, can actually cause the asthma in the first place.
WHAT TO DO ABOUT A DIRTY HVAC SYSTEM
First and foremost, be sure to change the air filters in your system routinely. This helps to keep your HVAC system clean and help to keep it operating efficiently. Over time, this will save you money, help to enhance your home air quality and keep your family safe. You should change the air filters at least every couple of months and, if necessary, more often.
The next step in keeping your living space clean and safe is having the air ducts in your system cleaned every 2-4 years. How often you have them cleaned is dependent upon the number of persons living in your home, any pets you may have, does anyone smoke in the house, and any pollution factors. You should have your HVAC system checked every year and also have the vents inspected to ensure that they are not blocked.
