Prevent Spring Allergies With HVAC Maintenance

You can always tell that it’s finally spring by the blooming flowers, new warmth in the air… and the sudden allergies. If you’re tired of dealing with itchy eyes and a runny nose, you might be happy to learn that you can reduce allergy symptoms while indoors by taking care of your HVAC system.

Here’s how your poorly maintained HVAC system is causing allergies and how you can improve your indoor air quality.

Is Your AC Causing Allergies?

Do you feel like your allergy symptoms never let up, even when you’re inside your home? Your HVAC system could be contributing to your discomfort. Here are some ways your AC unit is causing allergy symptoms:

  • Dirty air filters that need to be changed: If your air filters haven’t been replaced in the last three to six months, they won’t be able to remove allergens from your air effectively. Invest in high-quality air filters and ask your HVAC contractor to replace them according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Clogged air ducts that have never been cleaned: Your air ducts can accumulate a lot of dust, dirt, pollen, and pet dander over time. If they aren’t cleaned now and then, these allergens will circulate throughout your home.
  • Lack of regular HVAC maintenance: Your HVAC system needs routine maintenance to stay in good condition and reduce allergens effectively. Scheduling maintenance in the spring will ensure you have clean air ducts, new air filters, and AC equipment that works efficiently.
  • Excess humidity in your air ducts: If your indoor humidity levels are high, mold and mildew can grow in your air ducts. You may need to schedule air duct cleaning or install a dehumidifier to combat mold and mildew problems.

If you suspect that your air conditioning system is triggering your allergies, don’t wait to get help. A local HVAC contractor can inspect your AC and provide effective indoor air quality solutions.

Improve Indoor Air Quality With HVAC Tune-Ups

Your indoor air quality is extremely important to your health and can affect your allergy symptoms. If you want to improve your indoor air quality, it’s a good idea to schedule an HVAC tune-up. Your HVAC contractor will inspect your air ducts, air filters, and every other part of your air conditioner.

We recommend taking these steps to improve your indoor air quality:

  • Schedule HVAC maintenance in the spring and fall, right before the hottest and coldest times of the year.
  • Install a HEPA filter or UV air cleaner to reduce pollutants, pet dander, and allergens in your home’s air.
  • Invest in a dehumidifier or humidifier if your indoor humidity is too high or low.
