Ways Your HVAC System Can Affect Your Health

We know you love your HVAC system, and we do too, but without proper maintenance, it can malfunction in ways that affect your health. When it comes to HVAC systems, they’re not all fun and games. Your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system can sometimes be the culprit behind various health issues.

If you’ve ever wondered why you feel trapped in a never-ending cycle of sniffles and sneezes, your HVAC system might be to blame. Read on to find out more. 

Common Side Effects of Broken HVAC Systems

We’ve put together a list of things you should know about. All of these problems could easily be fixed by constant HVAC repair. 

1. Airborne Allergens

In case it wasn’t obvious, your HVAC system circulates air throughout your home. It can become a breeding ground for airborne allergens if it’s not properly maintained. Think of it like a giant dish for dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and mold spores.

These little troublemakers can trigger allergies and exacerbate respiratory conditions, leaving you feeling like you’re in a never-ending battle with the sneeze monster.

2. Hot and Cold

Have you ever gone to sleep freezing only to wake up in the heat of an oven? Sounds uncomfortable, right? That’s what it can feel like if your HVAC system is not working properly. 

Temperature swings can stress your body and immune system, making you more likely to catch a cold. This is just one of the reasons it is important to keep your HVAC system maintained. 

3. Carbon Monoxide

This may seem like an extreme, worst-case scenario, but we would rather you be safe than sorry. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas that is odorless. That means it could be present in your home and you wouldn’t even know. 

This can come from faulty heating systems and can cause headaches, dizziness, or even death. Regular maintenance of your system can catch this silent killer.
