Why Dirty HVACs are Bad for Your Health
As the winter months begin to approach, temperatures start to drop while humidity levels begin to rise. This can introduce a significant amount of moisture into the environment, posing a serious risk for both mold and mildew. While your home may seem free of mold and invasive bacteria, few take the time to inspect their HVAC ducts to ensure that they are clean and void of harmful mildew. After all, your HVAC system is responsible for distributing the air that you breathe, so it is of utmost importance to maintain clean HVAC ducts throughout the year. However, you may not know exactly how to access or clean your ducts, leaving you wondering how to go about inspecting your HVAC unit. Luckily, the professionals at VacDaddy.com are here to help you with your HVAC cleaning needs.
According to a report published in 2014 by the Government of Canada, nearly 2.5 million people suffer from asthma in Canada alone. Cold, dry weather is a common cause of asthma, which is one of the reasons why so many individuals suffer from asthma in the winter months. Unfortunately, asthma is commonly exacerbated due to poor indoor air quality. Many fail to even think about the quality of the air they breathe inside their home, however, HVAC units can cause continuous health concerns if compromised by dust, debris, mold, mildew, or other forms of harmful bacteria.
Failing to maintain optimal indoor air quality levels can result in a wealth of undesirable side effects ranging from fatigue to dizziness, sneezing, headaches, coughing, a weakened immune system, and many other harmful symptoms that can negatively affect your health. Every time that you turn on your central air system, you leave yourself susceptible to airborne bacteria that can continuously pose health risks if not properly remediated. That’s why, at VacDaddy.com, we conduct a full inspection of your home’s air ducts to determine whether your indoor air quality is a serious risk to you or your family members.
Weakened Immune System
Maintaining a resilient immune system can help you get through the winter months without coming under the weather like so many individuals seem to do. However, if your HVAC ducts are filled with harmful bacteria, you could be exposing you and your family to harmful germs. This is one of the main reasons that those with poor indoor air quality frequently come down with a variety of illnesses like the common cold, flu, and frequent sore throats.
Many people attribute their frequent illnesses to coming in contact with sick friends or family members, however, you may be exposing yourself to a much more serious problem that you may not even be fully aware of. While hiring a professional HVAC specialist may be a small expense, it is an expense worth paying to ensure that your family is protected from harmful dust, mildew, mold, and debris.
While these are just a few of the ways that your HVAC system may be affecting your health, there could be other outside forces responsible for compromising your immune system.
