3 Dangerous Problems Created by Dirty Indoor Air in Ontario, CA

It’s clear that poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can make life in your Ontario, CA, home uncomfortable. It can also have much more dire consequences. Here are three dangerous issues that might arise if you have dirty indoor air:

Health Problems

The clearest of all the negative consequences of poor IAQ is that it’ll worsen your health over time. The sheer number of adverse health effects that poor IAQ can cause is so vast that it’s impossible to discuss them all here. However, with prolonged exposure to dirty indoor air, some of these potential health problems may be irreversible.

The milder health problems related to poor IAQ include headaches, congestion, coughing, sneezing and watery eyes. More serious consequences may include respiratory diseases, heart disease, cognitive deficits and lung cancer. Cancer will be more likely if you have large quantities of volatile organic compounds at home.

HVAC Performance Issues

Maintaining efficient airflow is essential to pretty much every aspect of HVAC system functioning. If dust, pollen, pet dander, pet hair or other airborne pollutants begin infesting the air in your home, they can only have a harmful effect on that process.

For example, poor airflow might cause hot air to linger inside of your system instead of flowing into your home, causing overheating and possibly even a total system breakdown. Abrasion damage from dust circulating through your ductwork might cause your ducts to leak air. These and other things will all compromise system efficiency and force you to spend more time and money on repairs and maintenance.

Higher Energy Bills

As HVAC problems mount, your energy costs are likely to go through the roof. If your system’s components wear down, it’ll need more energy to heat or cool your home. As the system loses the ability to channel air through your home, it also won’t be able to change indoor temperatures as effectively, so it’ll use more energy.

Don’t sit around and ignore your IAQ problems. Call the pros at Metz Air Control today to request indoor air quality services in Ontario, CA, including duct cleaning.
