If you don’t clean your air ducts for a long time, they may cause sinus problems due to bad air quality. Pet dander, debris and dirt get into your family’s nasal passages, resulting in inflammation that later turns into sinus problems.
Each year, 35 million Americans receive a diagnosis for sinus problems. If you or a family member has a sinus problem, professional HVAC service techs may help you clean your air ducts to improve your indoor air quality.
Worsen or Cause Asthma and Allergies
When dirty particles get trapped in your air ducts, they impact the quality of air flowing in every room of your house. When you and your family breathe this air, it may cause severe health conditions like chronic respiratory diseases. Poor air quality is dangerous to people living with this illness, so if you wondered why those allergies persist, your dirty air ducts might be the reason.
Poor air quality circulating in your house may lead to fatigue and discomfort. Inhaling excess bacteria, dust and pollen could be a major contributor to drowsiness and fatigue.
Higher Energy Consumption
The presence of dirt in your air conditioning ducts will impact the system’s effectiveness over time. The system works harder than initially designed, causing it to use more power to run. Therefore, the system will increase energy consumption, especially in severe cold and hot temperatures.
