Cleaning Your HVAC Is About More Than Comfort

Ever walk into a home that hasn’t been cleaned in a long time and breathe in a full plume of dust? Yuck! While dust can seem relatively harmless, breathing in dust can irritate your repository system, and this problem only worsens if your HVAC system is dirty. Without proper cleaning, you can have an HVAC system that can lead to breathing problems over time. Here are just some reasons why you want to stay on top of cleaning your HVAC system this season.

Stopping Mold

I think we can all agree that being around a doctor’s office any time of the year is a little stressful, so mix in the past year, and you have yourself quite the tense environment. The biggest concern for cleaning your HVAC is stopping potential mold growth.

Mold growth is quite concerning in your HVAC system because mold spores can spread quickly. Not all mold can be fatal, as the infamous black mold, but common strains such as Alternaria can aggravate or even cause asthma symptoms after prolonged exposure. Leaving mold to grow in your home can cause scarring in your lungs over time, fatigue, and eventually death in some cases.

Getting Your Best Sleep

We recommend cleaning your HVAC system for those with sleep apnea or other breathing-related issues that make it hard for them to sleep. Not only can you run the risk of aggravating your lungs in your sleep, waking up gasping for air is not fun in the slightest.

Even amongst healthy individuals, poor air quality can ruin your sleep over time. Losing sleep is no minor inconvenience, as poor sleep can be dangerous and make your overall health, as well as work performance, suffer.

Filters And Fatigue

Flu and allergy symptoms can put quite the damper on your day-to-day life, but fatigue can be the most annoying aspect of poor air quality. Dirty air filters can collect a large amount of dust, dander, and other allergens that can cause you to feel fatigued after prolonged exposure.

Why make yourself more tired than you need to be? Avoid being haggard all day by regularly cleaning your HVAC filters and ducts every two to three months. Regular cleaning can save you money on your energy bills as well!
