Believe it or not, there are health dangers of dirty AC ducts. Whether you are trying to get ahead of the problem, or are noticing something wrong with the air quality in your home, these are some of the most common things to look out for in your dirty AC ducts.
Allergies, sore throats, colds, and coughing can all be caused by dirty AC ducts. Dirty AC ducts degrade the quality of air in your home, allowing allergens, irritants, pollutants, and pathogens (bacterial and viruses) to circulate. Additionally, if you don’t make sure to regularly clean your dirty AC ducts, then you run the risk of “sickness building syndrome.” This is when the build-up of allergens in your AC ducts can actually cause some people to develop allergies to things like pet dander, dust, etc.
