When they function properly, air-conditioning and HVAC systems can make life easy and enjoyable in every season. But comfort doesn’t always come easy.

If you ignore system maintenance, you and your family can suffer uncomfortable side effects, such as allergies and air quality problems. Even if you don’t live in heart of Beijing – where clouds have gotten so dark due to smog that government officials have taken to broadcasting the sunrise and sunset on an enormous flat screen TV in a public square, so residents can at least glimpse “the sun,” if only virtually – you need to be vigilant and care for your HVAC system. Otherwise, bugs, mold, dust, and other nastiness can filter through your ductwork into your home and contaminate the air you breathe.

Too much humidity causes many allergy problems. Ideally, you want the humidity level to be around 40 percent. If it gets more intense, bugs like dust mites as well as molds can multiply. If humidity is too low, the dry air can put pressure on your respiratory system and potentially make you more susceptible to certain types of allergy triggers.

Prevent the growth of mold in your HVAC ducts, by cleaning and maintaining your filters. And even once you’ve put up a guard against indoor allergens — such as pollen, pet dander and dust — you still need to watch out for outdoor triggers – such as tree pollen that enters your air ducts.
