Do You Think It Is Ok To Read About Potential Hazards01/26/2014 Back To Blog
When you go on line, or when you buy a newspaper and read articles related to HVAC systems and importance of air duct cleaning or ad for certain air duct company that is inviting you to have your air ducts inspected and cleaned do you think it is fair and justifiable those articles quite often mention various perils and hazards that may come your way as a result of neglecting your air ducts and HVAC systems? Do you think all those perils are real or they are just the way air duct cleaning industry is using to urge you into getting its products and services? Do you feel like all those are simple exaggerations or they are quite probable scenarios?
What about allergies and similar respiratory issues?
Let’s take for example the mildest forms of health perils that usually get associated with inadequately maintained air ducts and HVAC system – allergies, respiratory issues, headaches, nauseas, cough attacks and similar. Now even the governing and authoritative bodies within HVAC and air duct industries like agency EPA call for air duct cleaning in case you notice this or similar symptoms with your household members. Why this is especially particular is because EPA argues how there is no need to clean your air ducts unless you spot obvious traces of dirt within the same and unless you or your family members get sick. Now maybe it would make much more sense to clean the air ducts every now and then and to avoid health issues all together.
What about fires?
The next most frequently mentioned peril that goes hand by hand with clogged vents are frequent fires. In fact it has been recorded that on average each year in America twenty thousand fires are caused by clogged vents; a significant number which could be drastically reduced if people would only pay more attention to their HVAC systems and air ducts. Now you be the judge whether this number is worth of frequent mentioning or it is just another statistic.
