What Causes Unhealthy Air?
Indoor air pollution takes many forms and stems from a variety of sources. Microscopic particulates (human dander, pollen, dust mites) hang in the air. Gases (ammonia, formaldehyde, chloroform) can come from cleaning and hygiene products, furniture and carpet, cooking, and even garbage. Microbials (fungi and spores) are almost invisible but can find their way inside via pets or on our shoes and clothing.
Research shows that indoor air frequently is far more polluted than outdoor air. Short-term exposure to unhealthy air triggers allergy and asthma attacks, sneezing, runny noses, headaches, and fatigue. Long-term exposure can potentially be serious, leading to an increased risk of cancer, heart problems, and kidney or liver damage. Although it’s impossible to eliminate pollutants 100%, you can take measures to reduce the number and source.
What Role Does My HVAC System Play?
Over time, ductwork develops cracks, holes, and loose connections. When your AC unit or furnace kicks on, these leaks create a pathway for contaminants to be sucked into your living area from your attic or crawl space. These unhealthy pollutants can seriously compromise air quality and the health of your family.
As pollutants recirculate throughout your home, they can build up in your air ducts. This buildup creates an environment in which dust mites, bacteria, and other germs thrive. Replacing ductwork every ten years or so can help improve your indoor air quality.
