Is My Air Conditioner Making Me Sick?

Although your air conditioner can be a source of great comfort in your home, it can also contribute to poor indoor air quality if not properly maintained. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, your indoor air quality can be significantly worse than the outdoor air. That’s because all of the allergens and pollutants brought into your house can easily get trapped inside—and without the proper filtration system, there’s no way to eliminate those pollutants when the AC is running. So what can you do?

We offer:

What Are Your Symptoms?

There are a couple common symptoms people exhibit when they are suffering from poor indoor air quality:

  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sore, dry, or itchy throat
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Coughing
  • Skin issues
  • Other respiratory issues

If you are experiencing heightened symptoms at home, then it’s likely that you indoor air quality is the reason—and your air conditioner could be playing a big part in your poor air quality!

How Can You Fix Your Air Quality?

One of the first things you should do when it comes to improving your indoor air quality is replacing your air filters. This can have a huge impact on the air you’re breathing in your home. You can also check all of your ductwork for leaks or gaps. This is important because if there are holes in your ductwork, it can suck in unfiltered air and distribute it throughout the house—not something you want! Those two simple steps can help reduce the chances of your air conditioner making you sick.

You should also schedule routine air conditioner maintenance at least once a year. This maintenance will ensure that your system is working properly—including swapping out filters and dealing with air quality related issues. The professional technicians at Arctic Air Conditioning can visit your central New Jersey home and inspect your system inside and out to make sure it’s efficient and safe. If our experts determine replacement is necessary, we will let you know. Do you need a new AC system?

Another option you may want to consider in the summer is installing a dehumidifier. If your AC isn’t up to the challenge of dehumidifying your home, then you may need to install a little backup. A whole-house dehumidifier can help reduce the moisture in the air, which can be a breeding ground for mold spores and other airborne pollutants.
