Air conditioning systems that are not regularly maintained can harbor mold, mildew, and other bacteria. The majority of air conditioning flu-like symptoms are caused by sensitivity to mold and bacteria build up inside the air ducts. Having flu like symptoms is a sign that you may not be receiving fresh oxygen. All the pollutants forming in the air are being circulated and being pumped into your environment.
If you work in a environment where you may have flu like symptoms contact the person who is in charge of building maintenance and ask them to have the air conditioning system serviced and checked. The service that includes inspection of the hvac system includes the filters and having the coils in the air handler cleaned. HVAC technicians have a variety of solutions and methods that will sterilize the coils and kill any bacteria and mold growing inside the hvac systems.
Everyone has the right to have a safe working environment, and a dirty hvac system is certainly something that should be addressed.
