For the last couple of years I found myself getting sick frequently.
When I was a younger man I would hardly even get sick once a year, now it seems to happen once a month. I started taking several different kinds of allergy meds, as well as vitamins, but nothing seems to help. Finally I spoke to a doctor about it. I know it took a while, but I don’t like doctors and haven’t been to see one in several years. The doctor told me to consult an air quality specialist or an HVAC technician and have them evaluate the air quality of my home. My sickness might be coming from germs, or it might simply be dirty air ducts and poor indoor air quality. I had no idea this was even possible, so I went online and started to research indoor air quality. I felt like such an idiot afterward! Of course dirt, grime, and pet dander inside the air ducts would have a negative impact on my health! Even worse, once the ductwork gets damp and dirty enough it becomes a breeding ground for mildew and mold, which is even worse for my breathing. I called a local HVAC tech and asked for an air quality evaluation as soon as possible. The results were pretty bad, but the HVAC tech told me it was an easy fix. The system wouldn’t need to be changed or fixed at all, I just needed a deep and thorough cleaning of all my air ducts and air vents. I look forward to breathing easier.
