Are you aware of the fact that dirty air ducts can cause allergies? If you didn’t know this it might be surprising to tell you that your indoor heating and air conditioning system can be a direct cause of your house.
Yes, it is true that your HVAC system that is meant to keep you cold when it’s hot out and warm when it’s cold out can’t also be the cause of your allergies.
So how can this be? Well it is actually really simple if you have a heating and AC system that doesn’t run very efficiently, or is very old, or not very clean, these can all be contributing factors that can cause allergies. This is because a heating and air conditioning system that doesn’t run very efficiently isn’t going to do a very good job of filtering out all kinds of things that get into your indoor air. Things like dirt, debris, and bacteria. If your heating and cooling system is old it’s more likely to have issues running efficiently, and if your heating and AC system isn’t cleaned very often, well you could very well be breathing in that same dirt that’s coming from your dirty air ducts. I would suggest that you get a ductwork cleaning. I would also recommend that you change your air filters frequently, you would be amazed at how much of a difference changing your air filters can make. Keeping your air filters clean further helps to keep your HVAC system as a whole clean, and this can prevent you from having bad indoor air quality which can be the direct cause that can lead to allergies.
