Air ducts are like your home’s lungs. They take in the air around them and circulate that same air back into your home. As dust, dirt, mold, vermin, microbes, and other harmful substances accumulate in ducts of air conditioning systems, it can have a worse impact than the outdoor air.
Health Issues Caused by Dirty Air Ducts
Following are a few health problems that can occur due to a dirty AC duct:
Asthma and Other Pulmonary Health Conditions
During bad-air days, asthmatics are encouraged to stay inside. However, with poorly maintained air ducts, staying inside is no better than being outside. Allergens circulating throughout the indoor air can trigger increased and longer attacks.
If you’re waking up with coughing, sneezing, sore throats, runny noses, nasal congestion, poor air quality could be part of the problem.
Sinus Infection & Nasal Problems
As bacteria and viruses circulate throughout your indoor air, they could be working their way into your family’s sinuses, which can lead to infection.
Bacteria can cause the common cold.
Dry or Itchy Skin
Mold and mildew can lead to skin issues such as eczema, rashes, and hives.
Constant and chronic fatigue is a symptom of an unhealthy environment.
Dirty air ducts not only cause stress due to the bad air quality but also because cleaning them yourself can be tedious and ineffective – adding to your frustration.
If you are regularly waking up with a sore throat, headaches, itchy eyes, and low-grade fevers your HVAC system could be contributing to the itch and irritation.
The “Sick Building Syndrome”
The allergens accumulate over time and are distributed throughout the building. This may not affect some people immediately but in the long run, it may cause other severe respiratory diseases.
Rodents and Insects Related Diseases
Unwanted rodents and insects are not only a nuisance but a serious health threat. They enter your ductwork and leave behind droppings and other debris, which circulates through your home.
Persistent Smell Induced Headaches
Moist and dirty air ducts spread musty odor in your home. It becomes less noticeable to residents once exposed to it for an extended period. However, it can cause severe headaches and it will be noticeable to any guests you invite to your home.
Poor air quality alone can cause drowsiness. Breathing in an excess of pollen, bacteria, and dander contributes to your daily fatigue.
Heightened Autoimmune Disorders
Sensitive people should make sure their body is exposed to as few toxins as possible by ensuring your air system isn’t recirculating contaminants.
Mold and Mildew Cause Serious Health Issues
If moisture gets into your air ducts, mold spores could cling to the side of your ducts and grow into a serious problem. Some molds come with major health issues.
