Guard Against Allergies By Keeping Your HVAC Equipment Serviced
Everyone sneezes from time to time. If you’re sneezing a lot, plus suffering from watery air, a runny nose, and a cough, the problem could be allergies. Thankfully, you don’t need to combat allergies alone! You can contact the HVAC professionals at JD Mohler for help. Ensure a healthy, enjoyable indoor environment with the help of your heating and air conditioning system. A great ally in the fight against indoor allergens and lung-irritating pollutants, your HVAC does more than keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It has a big effect on indoor air quality as well.
Your HVAC system, and the rest of your home, can harbor and spread allergens like pet dander, dust mites, mold, mildew, and pollen. Your HVAC system’s air filters are intended to trap the bulk of these allergens when they become airborne. In order to fight off allergies, you’ll want to follow these pieces of expert advice:
#1 Change your filter. Your air filters are the first line of defense against any pollen from outside. Keep your air filter clean by changing it every one to three months, or more often if you have kids and pets. Filthy filters force your system to work harder to distribute air and spread more allergens and contaminants throughout your home. You may want to consider upgrading your standard filter to HEPA-rated air filters for your home air conditioner. Standard filters are constructed to keep your system clean, not the air in your home. True HEPA filters with a MERV rating of 10 or higher can remove more allergy-inducing particles from the air, including smaller particles standard filters miss. That is exactly what you want!
#2 Keep an eye on the humidity levels in your home. Humidity is another key factor in the fight against allergies. Humidity is more than just bad for your hair. Humid air can lead to the proliferation of mold and mildew, which can produce spores that worsen allergy and asthma symptoms. Air should neither be too dry nor too humid. Relative humidity levels around 40% are best. Running your air conditioner on cool will help remove excess humidity from the air.
#3 Have your HVAC regularly serviced. Your system is only keeping your air clean if it is working to the best of its ability. It needs to be serviced regularly, at least once a year. If it is not, it will begin to break down from typical wear and tear. Before you know it, your air will be filled with dust and allergens.
