If you have ever been driving and seen the dirty brown cloud of pollution hovering over the horizons in Southern California, you probably are thankful that such a toxic atmosphere only exists outside. What most homeowners do not know, however, is that these exact same particulates — which have caused the Greater Los Angeles Area to receive an F grade for its horrible air quality from the American Lung Association — are the very same particles gathering inside your house.
Because homes are more insulated than ever, these microscopic contaminants have nowhere to go except into your ducts. Your ductwork then blows these hazardous pollutants into your lungs, irritating and inflaming them with all kinds of allergies and diseases. To protect your household from these problems, reach out to Air Care Heating & Air for essential duct services.

You may be wondering just how important it is to get duct services on a regular basis. While we often remember to have our plumbing or electrical systems checked, it is easy to forget about our ductwork, buried deep within the walls and foundations of our homes. The problem is that if your ducts are leaky or disconnected, or if the air filters have become clogged with too much dust, they will dramatically affect the health of you and your family. You might not immediately notice the symptoms, but surely and steadily, the accumulation of debris and dirt is causing devastating results.
Some of the health hazards that are directly caused by the poor indoor air quality that results from unmaintained ducts include:
- Dry skin, hives, and rashes
- Itchy eyes, ears, and noses
- Breathing issues
- Bloody and stuffy noses
- Continual coughing and sneezing
- Intensified allergy symptoms
