Are Your Dirty Air Ducts Making You Sick?
The air you breathe has a substantial effect on your family’s health. It may sound surprising, but your house can actually be making you sick.
Are you or any member of the family experiencing nasal congestion, sneezing or wheezing? Most people associate these symptoms with a cold or flu, but the truth is your dirt ducts might be causing this problem.
Dirty ducts within your home can mean dirty air in all of your living spaces. Your duct system functions as the respiratory system of your home. It accumulates a mass of contaminants, including dirt, dust, animal dander, pollen with normal use. Each time you turn on the air conditioner or the furnace, these contaminants are spewed out and circulated throughout your home. What’s alarming is that the EPA has found that the indoor air is 70 times more polluted than outdoor air.
Avoid air duct dangers
Some people are more sensitive to these contaminants than others. Children and elderly are more vulnerable to polluted air. Complaints are especially common during the winter months, where widows are often sealed shut and fresh air is scarce.
To avoid health hazards and lower your home’s levels of airborne allergens, consider having your air ducts cleaned and inspected by a professional every 2 years. This will not only improve indoor air quality and prevent health problems; it can also improve the efficiency of your system.
Keeping your air ducts clean should be a part of regular home maintenance. Make sure the air in your home is not causing harm to your family. The $300 to $600 is actually a small price to pay to ensure the health of your family.
