HVAC Ducts Making You Sick?

I am not a good patient.

  • In fact, I am a giant wuss when it comes to being sick.

Whether it is a cold, flu or something else, I am such a baby that I even annoy myself. This is straight truth and I’m not so proud of it. I whine, complain and make a general nuisance of myself. So, it is in everyone’s best interest to keep me healthy. A few years back, I found myself picking up every little cold. It seemed like I simply could not stay healthy. The doctors were stumped as well. They suggested that my immune system was depleted through stress or lack of nutrition. So, I got after both of those elements but still kept getting sick. A neighbor of mine made an observation that ended up making all the difference. He was in my house one day helping me get a trunk down from the attic. That’s when he asked me about my HVAC ductwork. My neighbor just off handedly asked me when the last time I had my air ducts cleaned. Well, never was my unfortunate answer. Then it dawned on my that perhaps that was what was causing such a negative impact on my immune system. I called my HVAC people to see what they could do to help me out. Turns out, they have a sister company who does nothing but ductwork cleaning. I booked an appointment right then. The duct cleaning team showed up days later and I could not believe the results. The amount of junk they sucked out of those HVAC ducts was frightening. However, my health improved immediately!
