Is your Home Sick and Making you Sick Too?

Your home may be harboring mold, mildew and bacteria without you even knowing.

What makes a home sick?

According to the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, a sick house is a house with a serious air quality problem.  A source of the problem could be your air conditioner.

Mold and spores can grow in your a/c duct.  Exposure to these spores over time can cause allergies and symptoms including headaches, skin disorders, watery eyes and fatigue.

Florida has a humid climate and if there is moisture in your a/c duct, this becomes the perfect breeding ground for mold and bacteria to grow in your a/c system.

When bacteria and mold are in your a/c duct, it spreads throughout your home via your air conditioning system and anyone in your home is exposed to these pathogens.

What can be done to make a sick home healthy?

  • Have your ductwork cleaned to remove dirt, mold and bacteria
  • Use a good a/c filter and change it regularly
  • Install an air purifier in your a/c unit to filter the air

If you or a family member is experiencing any of the above symptoms, you may want to consider having your a/c system checked out.  RDS Air Conditioning will check your a/c system and with our maintenance package, we will add safe, non-toxic anti-bacterial tablets to keep bacteria out of your a/c system.

If you want to have an air purifier installed or would like more information, contact RDS Air Conditioning.  Don’t Settle for Less, Use RDS!
