What diseases can you get from air conditioning?
Contaminants that get into your air conditioner can quickly spread in the air throughout the space (via your ductwork/air vents). Air conditioners themselves can be places for bacteria to proliferate if they are not properly maintained. It leads to Legionnaire’s Disease, or Pontiac Fever. You can contract it by inhaling a water organism often found in air conditioners. The center for disease control say it impacts your respiratory system. But, there are a few steps you can do to protect yourself:
- Step one: Change the filters
- Step two: Don’t overwork the system
- Step three: Schedule cleaning appointment
