Summer can bring on the heat and humidity in Orlando, making air conditioning a necessity. The climate control in your home can soothe the intense Florida temperatures, but it also circulates whatever may be hiding in your air ducts. Before your AC is on high for the months to come, you should make sure your home in Orlando is ready for summer with a thorough duct cleaning.
Dangers of Dirty Ducts During Summertime
The mild winters of Florida can help contribute to unhealthy debris collecting in your air ducts. Most Floridians use their HVAC system less during the winter and spring, which can cause some serious concerns in your ducts. Mold, dust, pests and other types of debris can collect in your air ducts, just waiting for summer to be released within your home.
The many allergens and contaminants that can hide in your air ducts may be released into the air once you are running your AC unit all day and all night. If it has been a few years since your last duct cleaning, you could be exposing you and your family to harmful elements. Mold, dust and other debris can contribute to irritating and serious health conditions, including:
- Respiratory illnesses – emphysema, COPD, COVID, bronchitis and more
- Sinus infections
Air quality is vital for good health. Even if you or your family do not have any of these conditions, poor air quality can impact your overall wellness. Individuals exposed to ongoing poor air quality may be at higher risk of obtaining respiratory conditions and serious health issues like cardiovascular disease and cancer.
