Your commercial AC may be working like a dynamo, especially if it’s getting regular maintenance. However, unsuspected ductwork issues can cause serious problems for Denver, NC business owners. Ducts should be inspected regularly to prevent these situations from developing:
Poor Indoor Air Quality
Viruses and bacteria are disease-causing microbes that commonly invade Denver ducts. These pathogens can make your employees and your customers feel sick. Symptoms of poor indoor air quality include coughing, headache, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and inability to focus. There might also be eye, nose, and throat irritations, skin rashes, sinus problems, colds, and flu. Dander, dust, organic growth, and pollen can trigger allergic reactions, cause respiratory infections, and aggravate breathing disorders like COPD.
Microbes in your ducts can reproduce rapidly and make your indoor air smell foul. Organic growth can smell musty or like sweaty socks. If your air smells like rotten eggs, a dead animal in the ducts is probably to blame. The last thing you need is a smelly commercial space, but regular duct cleaning will prevent that from happening.
Ducts can get clogged with dust, dirt, dander, insect droppings, and other debris. These contaminants can increase to the point where they impair airflow. Poor airflow reduces cooling output and creates hot and cold spots. Indoor air can seem stuffy and stale. If ducts are also leaking, the loss of cool air diminishes airflow even more. Leaks and obstructions in ducts make air conditioners overwork. The additional wear and tear can increase AC repairs and can lead to a premature AC replacement.
