Relieving Asthma Symptoms Through HVAC Maintenance
If you or someone else in your household suffers from asthma, HVAC maintenance should be taken seriously to create a home environment that prevents asthma attacks.
Though asthma has no cure, it can be made manageable by taking the right measures to remove allergens. Here are a few ways asthma can be made manageable through proper duct cleaning and HVAC maintenance:
Changing HVAC system’s air filter
If you’re experiencing asthma attacks in your home and don’t know the reason, it is likely due to airborne contaminants within your home’s duct system. Mold and dust are allergens that are often found in ductwork. Your HVAC system’s air filter should be changed regularly to ensure that your ducts are kept clean.
If you notice that there are signs of contaminants in your ductwork, they should be removed as soon as possible. Call a trained ductwork professional to clean your ducts and remove the contaminants.
Even after cleaning your ducts, mold can still be around. Installing UV lights through your HVAC system will disinfect the air and kill mold spores, as well as germs, viruses, and bacteria. Several factors will contribute to the effectiveness of UV lamps installed in your HVAC system, such as their intensity, number, direction and placement. When properly integrated into your home, UV lamps can make it unnecessary to have any other air-purifying appliances.
Installing new ducts
If the problem in your home is mold growth in the duct system, then a simple duct cleaning will not be enough to eliminate the problem. If there is mold growth then replacing the duct system entirely is the best solution for good indoor air quality. Duct replacement is more expensive than cleaning, but provides guaranteed cleanliness and removal of allergens.
