Pests in Your Air Ducts

It’s common to find dirt, debris, and pollutants in your ducts, but if you have a breach somewhere in your duct system, then you may find your home infested with insects or rodents. When rodents invade, dander and droppings may infiltrate your air system while they crawl around with your knowledge. Rodents can cause diseases or allergies due to what they leave behind in your ducts from the air you ingest. They may even do damage to your HVAC system by chewing through lines that lead to costly repairs. 

Other pests that can invade your HVAC system include:

  • Cockroaches - They like cool, dark places and carry diseases
  • Spiders - They present a health hazard since some have potent venom
  • Snakes - Ducts are a warm place for them to nest and can damage parts of your unit
  • Squirrels and Raccoons - Similar damage as mice

How Dirty Ducts Can Affect Your Health

Particles from pet dander, pollen, and other dust or debris can compromise the airflow in your AC system. The air you’re breathing in can cause allergies and could even lead to chronic respiratory diseases. Dirty ducts can also cause headaches, low-grade fever, difficulty breathing, heightened autoimmune disorders, and fatigue.

Other symptoms that could indicate larger health concerns include:

  • Pre-existing conditons such as asthma, allergies, or pulmonary conditions worsening
  • The development of respiratory infections
  • Catching a sinus infection or the common cold
  • The apperance of dry/itchy skin
  • Stress
