It’s that time of year again  here in Houston,  fall is in the air. The crisp, cool air and changing leaves are right around the corner. But, that also means it’s about time for the respiratory illnesses to rear their ugly heads. One way to prevent the seasonal germs from getting you sick this year is to perform HVAC maintenance.

How does HVAC maintenance help protect your health? 

Protection From Mold in the Home

We have had several tropical systems and heavy rains in the past few years. That has a nasty sideeffect, mold. No one likes to think about it, but a lot of our homes are brimming with mold that’s hidden out of sight. What lurks under the surface will still make its mark on our health, though.

During the fall, do you and your family often experience the following symptoms?

  • Sore or itchy throat
  • Nasal congestion
  • Croup-like cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Respiratory illness (chronic or consistent)
  • Wheezing or trouble breathing
  • Eye redness, irritation, or dryness
  • Skin irritation
  • Lung infection
  • The development of asthma

If so, then there’s a good chance you could be breathing in tiny mold particles. To ensure better air quality, it’s advised that you reach out to an HVAC company to do an inspection. 

Dusty Air Can Cause Respiratory Issues.

When you open up the blinds in the morning, can you see a lot of dust floating around? This all-too-common problem is often the result of poor maintenance and dust buildup.

You breathe in those visible dust particles in the air, and they aren’t helping your health. In fact, dust exposure may be the direct cause of your illness.

If your lungs are busy cleaning out dust, then your immune system won’t be working at full capacity. Your body won’t be as prepared to fight off the seasonal flu, RSV, and other respiratory illnesses.

HVAC Maintenance Destroys Mold, Dust, and Other Hazards

Mold, mildew, and dust all contribute to why we are more susceptible to fall and winter diseases. So, how do you face this problem head-on?

You need to kill the root of the problem by getting routine HVAC maintenance.

In the fall, this process involves:

  • Inspection or replacement of filters, pulleys, and belts
  • Clearing and cleaning all drain pans and drain lines (prevents new mold growth)
  • Sanitizing the ducts and airways
  • Killing all mold, dust, and debris
  • Inspecting all equipment

This process ensures the air in your home is as filtered, clean, and safe as possible. Say goodbye to all the fall-time tissues because you won’t need them this year!

Routine HVAC Maintenance: Your Family’s Health Depends on it

HVAC maintenance is an afterthought for most families. It often goes unnoticed until it’s too late. Don’t wait until your entire family is struggling with the flu or RSV this year.

Instead, get some preventative care going and get your maintenance taken care of.
