Can Your HVAC Affect Your Health?

Did you know that the air quality within your home can be between 2 to 5 times worse than the air outside? A large factor that contributes to this poor indoor air quality is your HVAC unit and its various parts. It is essential to keep your HVAC unit clean and well maintained throughout the year, and especially before the changing of the seasons. This will help the unit operate more efficiently and will keep the air in your home cleaner and safer to breathe.

Some of the symptoms you could experience as a result of poor indoor air quality include:

  • Coughing, congestion, and irritation

  • Asthma

  • Allergies

  • Other respiratory issues

How do HVAC Units Work?

HVAC units typically work by pulling external air into them where that air is then heated or cooled depending on the temperature you set on your thermostat. This warm or cool air is pumped through the air ducts that you have throughout your home changing the temperature of your household.

How a Dirty HVAC Unit Affects Your Health

Most of the time, where you will find the highest accumulation of dirt, dust, and bacteria are in your air ducts. These narrow, metal tubes make the perfect breeding grounds for bacteria and sometimes even mold growth. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should have your air ducts thoroughly cleaned at least every three years.

Additionally, making sure you change your air filters every six months or every two months if you have a pet is crucial to maintaining your indoor air quality.
