Beyond regulating the temperature, your heating and cooling system breathes the air inside your home. Everyday dust and dirt will eventually build up in your HVAC units. This dust and dirt acts like topsoil for contaminants, helping them grow when moisture infiltrates your HVAC system. In particular, moisture will often get in through the coil of the AC during summer.
Every HVAC system has the potential to grow contaminants. To mitigate this risk, we recommend you have your air ducts thoroughly cleaned once every five years, and have a licensed HVAC company inspect your AC coil annually. Changing your HVAC filters, vacuuming, and washing carpets and hardwood floors regularly will also help keep your air ducts and heating and cooling system clean and working efficiently.
