Is Your Air Conditioner Making You Sick?

No one wants so to be sick, that’s why we strive to keep our homes and our working spaces as clean as possible. But no matter how much cleaning we do, there are still a lot of lurking microscopic toxins that can harm our health. Unfortunately, we don’t see these toxins with our naked eye but you’ll know they are there once we begin to feel the manifesting symptoms associated with those bugs.

Examples of such symptoms include wheezing, frequent colds, ear infections, stomach pains, sneezing, asthma, coughing, skin care problems, water eyes/dry eyes, sore nasal passages, irritated throat, frequent headaches, allergic reactions, skin care problems and hypersensitivity among others.

If you are experiencing at least one or two of these symptoms then it’s highly likely toxic pollutants are present in your home. But if you suffer from a combination of these symptoms then there’s a very big chance that it’s linked to your air conditioner.

So what could be making you sick?

Sickness associated with your air conditioner units is owed to the presence of mold.

Molds are tiny fungi that belong to the same family as yeasts and mushrooms. Molds reproduce and grow quickly and they are also highly adaptive which makes them even more difficult to stop. Molds thrive in damp organic environment that’s why you commonly see mold in wet windowsills, on papers stored in damp places, spoiled food and on decayed wood.

Although these are toxic, the most dangerous of all molds are the ones that we can’t see. Air conditioner units are unfortunately one of the places molds love to invade. Undetected mold can spread rapidly in your home and if you don’t do anything about it, it could hamper your health as well as your family’s health. If you think your AC has slight to moderate levels of mold you can have it removed by cleaning, proper ventilation or by exposure to sunlight. But since you can never be sure, the best way to remove mold from your air conditioner is to have a professional do the job for you.
