I have dealt with horrible allergies ever since I was a kid.
A few weeks ago I could barely keep my eyes open, and I finally had my problem figured out.
Whenever I was in my house, my allergies would be 10 times worse because of my old HVAC system. The way I figured this out was by turning of my AC one day and realizing that my allergies weren’t quite as bad. I thought it was kind of crazy that just turning of my AC made such a difference, and then I realized that it was because of the ductwork. I have never had the ductwork in my house professionally cleaned and I knew I had to call an HVAC technician to help me out. When I first talked to the HVAC technician he was really helpful and he told me how much ductwork would help my home. I had him come out the next day to look at my AC unit and everything was so dusty! He told me that my HVAC system looked very outdated, and that he was sure he was going to find mold in my ductwork. I didn’t like the idea that I had been breathing in mold for so long through my AC unit, and I knew that he was probably correct. I called my allergist to ask him about mold and AC units and if he commonly gets complaints about the two. My allergist never called back, but as soon as my HVAC technician left I was feeling so much better! If you have really bad allergies, you should really check into calling an HVAC technician to clean your ductwork.
