Do you find yourself sneezing, coughing and having itchy, watery eyes while you’re in your home more than you do when you’re outside of your home? You may start to wonder if you’re allergic to your furnace or air conditioning unit. The short answer is no, the long answer is that you may be allergic to the allergens, dust and debris that is within your HVAC system.
If you’ve recently purchased a home or have noticed that since you’ve been at your current residence your allergies have seemed to get worse, you may want to consider a thorough cleaning of your HVAC system. Previous owners, for instance, may have had pets whose hair and dander may be stuck to components in your heating or cooling system and even in your duct work. Plus, there’s always the chance of mold and microorganism growth within your vents. All of this continually cycles throughout your home on a daily basis.
Annual cleaning and maintenance of your furnace and AC unit will help control the dust and debris that circulates through your home continually. It’s recommended that you get your duct work thoroughly cleaned after home renovations or if you suspect you have mold growth or a lot of build-up in your ducts. Getting your complete HVAC system cleaned annually and regularly changing your air filters will also lessen the dust you see accumulating around your home.
