With allergy season fast approaching, everyone is taking precautions to keep their noses dry and ready to endure the pollen and other allergens of spring. Nasal sprays and antihistamines are great ways to combat a runny nose, but there is one simple precaution many homeowners might be overlooking: the dirty air vents and filters inside their homes. We are going to share with you some of the ways dirty vents may worsen your spring allergies. If you live in the DFW Metroplex, H&H Heating and Air can help you get those vents in shape for the impending spring.
Dirty buildup on vents prevents new air from circulating into them. The new, clean air is held back by a buildup of dust, dirt, bacteria and allergens. In areas with greater moisture, vents can even have a buildup of mold spores! Instead of your vents pushing the clean air out, it is continuously pushing out the same dirty air, causing a loop of pollution flowing through your house. This can severely lower the air quality inside of your home. Breathing this in can increase your chances of getting and staying sick, as well as increase your susceptibility to having reactions to common allergens, such as pollen or mold.
Houses with dirty, clogged air vents can acquire a foul smell over time, and for those who are sensitive to smell, this can be bad news for their noses! The smell that occurs comes from the dispersal of dirty substances that are polluting your ventilation system. Whether it is dust, pet dander or mold spores, anything that is sitting for too long can cause an unpleasant smell. Regular cleaning of your vents can eliminate this odor, creating a more pleasant atmosphere and healthier environment in your home. H&H Heating and Air offers cleaning services to improve the air circulation and fragrance of your residence. &H &77HIUEHF
Might Lead to Something Worse
Poor circulation and dirty ventilation can seriously intensify the symptoms of allergies and asthma. Watery eyes, coughing and a runny nose are just the beginning of what dirty vents can do to your health. In some cases, dirty vents can cause someone to develop a sinus or respiratory infection – bad news for susceptible populations like young children, the elderly, or anyone with cardiovascular issues. Even pets can be affected by poor indoor air quality.
A study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has shown that people who suffer from respiratory illnesses and allergies saw improved health after having their home’s vents and duct systems cleaned. Ask H&H how they can make your ventilation system more sanitary by calling (972) 404-6822.
