We’d like to start by saying if you’re sick, you should get to a doctor first and foremost. Your HVAC system can play a big part in worsening allergies and, potentially, can spread germs in your home. But this conversation is designed to help you prevent issues—not treat them!

That means it circulates and recirculates air in your home, but it’s always the same air. Meanwhile pet dander, skin molecules, outdoor dust and pollen, and even more are all infiltrating. These allergens and germs come in, but they don’t really go out, meaning they start to collect in your HVAC system’s inner workings. This leads to massive amounts of gunk and junk in your air, which can do some fair bit of harm to your respiratory health.
