If you experience increased allergy problems or trouble breathing when the heat is put on, you may need to get your air ducts cleaned. Removing or reducing the accumulation of pollutants in your house before sealing it up for the winter is an important step in preventing the negative health impacts caused by continuous exposure to poor indoor air quality. Cleaning and maintaining your home’s ventilation system can keep it clear of debris, dust, and other particles that might clog filters and reduce airflow. Anyone suffering from poor indoor air quality may instead focus on fighting off the flu or common cold, which usually dampens festivities, with a clean heating and cooling system.
Maintaining your home’s interior air quality and keeping you and your family healthy all season long requires checking your furnace filter and air ducts.
