The Importance of HVAC Maintenance During COVID-19

November 21, 2020

In these tumultuous times where one’s health is of the highest priority, it’s important to take all possible measures to create a healthy environment. One active step that you can immediately take is scheduling maintenance and cleaning your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. Doing this can have a dramatic positive effect in helping significantly minimize the spread of bacteria, debris, and other substances harmful to your respiratory system which is particularly relevant considering current circumstances. Here’s why maintaining your HVAC system is especially important amidst COVID-19.


If your AC is breaking down and is unable to sufficiently remove moisture from the air, you’ll likely see an increase in mold. Mold thrives in humid and moisture-heavy conditions. If left unabated, mold can prove to be hazardous to your health and your loved ones. In particular, mold can help cause allergic reactions to vulnerable groups. This can be avoided through scheduled maintenance and the cleaning of your HVAC system.


Bacteria can prove especially dangerous when coming into contact with your air conditioning unit. When bacteria contaminates your AC, it’s only a matter of time before things cascade in a negative direction. Bacteria and viruses can travel quickly especially in buildings that have a shared HVAC system and spread from individual to individual. If you’re not cleaning or maintaining your AC, you are increasing the likelihood of allergic reactions and other serious illnesses.  


Dust mites can accumulate quickly in your HVAC system especially in environments with pets and warm humid weather. This means that you’ll need to regularly allocate your time cleaning your HVAC system and its ducts to avoid dust accruing. 


If you’re in a home or office setting, you’re likely to be around objects that emit chemicals. Usually, chemicals won’t trouble you too much because they often are in low doses. However, closed inside settings with poor ventilation will help accumulate and spread chemical compounds that can prove harmful. It is important to clean your HVAC system so that you’re receiving better ventilation and indoor air quality.


Pollution isn’t just an outdoor problem. Pollutants from outside can come inside and cause trouble to your air quality all because your HVAC system isn’t clean. You’ll need to have a clean HVAC system to ensure that pollutants aren’t getting trapped in filters.
