People who suffer from severe indoor allergies or asthma should consider having their HVAC system cleaned on a regularly basis. HVAC systems, while not the direct cause of allergies and asthma, often provide the perfect place for allergens to hide and grow. In some cases, the HVAC systems will even spread the allergens around a house, which can trigger an allergy or asthma attack.
Types of Allergens that Can Be Found in HVAC Systems
A number of different allergens can be found inside the filters and vents of an HVAC system. The following are the most common types of allergens found in HVAC systems:
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
- Pest/insect droppings
These allergens may not be harmful when left trapped in the filters or vents, but when they become airborne they can become problematic.
