Common Signs your Air Conditioner is Making you Sick

Common Signs your Air Conditioner is Making you Sick

How’s your indoor air quality? It’s possible the air in your house isn’t the best it could be and could impact your health and well-being. Take a look at some common signs your air conditioner is making you sick.


Headaches are one of the first signs of poor indoor air quality. If you haven’t changed the air filter in your AC lately, it’s time. Your air filter helps keep airborne pollutants out of your HVAC system and out of the air in your home. Reducing the dust, pollen, dander, and other particles can help eliminate headaches caused by poor air quality.

Sore Throat

A sore throat could be a sign that your air conditioner is making you sick. It could be due to temperature inconsistencies, or it could be from lack of quality air filtration. Adding an air purification system to your HVAC system can remove the airborne contaminants that are leaving you with a sore throat.

Asthma and Allergy Symptom Flare-Ups

Poor indoor air quality can take its toll on everyone but can have the biggest impact on your family and loved ones who have asthma or allergies. In both cases, airborne allergens and pollutants can make breathing more difficult and flare-ups more common. Whether the sensitivity is to dust, pollen, dander, mold, chemicals, or a combination, if your AC is circulating any of these throughout your home, it could be making you or a family member sick.
