Preventing allergy symptoms starts at home with your heating and air conditioning system.
Did you know that it’s possible to prevent many of your allergy problems by making a few adjustments to your heating and air conditioning system? Whether you suffer from seasonal or year-round allergies, the last place you want to have an attack is at home. Your HVAC system could be the culprit if you regularly find your allergies get worse indoors. Tweaking your system with these easy tips is the best way to reduce your allergies at home.
Upgrade to a Better Air Filter
Your HVAC unit uses a filter to keep the air clean. Its job is to remove pollen, pet dander, dust, and pollutants out of the air. If your filter gets too dirty, it can no longer do its job. That’s why it is so important to change it frequently. Even better, try upgrading to a higher quality filter. You should see a significant difference in your allergies once you upgrade.
Use a Dehumidifier
Humid air is more prone to mold and mildew. This impacts the air quality in your home. What does this mean for you? You’ll most likely experience more allergy problems and asthma attacks. Using a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture from the air is the best option. Once the air is drier, you’ll notice fewer respiratory and allergy problems.
Clean Around the Air Vents
When you deep clean your home, do you make sure to dust and clean the air vents? Many people overlook their air vents when cleaning. Using a soft cloth or dusting wand to remove excess dirt and dust will help reduce your allergy issues. It will also prevent this dirt from invading your HVAC system.
