How to get your indoor air quality to work for you, instead of against you.
If your indoor air quality is suffering, chances are, so are you. What can you do? You can take a look at your HVAC system, for a start. Here’s how your heating and cooling system could be the reason for your lingering allergies.
Your HVAC System and Your Indoor Air
The air in your home is completely affected by your heating and air conditioning system. It doesn’t just circulate through without any impact on the quality. If you’re an allergy sufferer, this is important information for you to know. Everything from maintenance to your air filter could be making your allergies worse.
What’s in Your Air?
Your indoor air can often be more polluted than the air outside. It can be chock full of pollen, pet hair and pet dander, dust, dust mites, mold, mildew, and fumes from household cleaners and chemicals. If you neglect your HVAC system, your allergies don’t stand a chance against those airborne pollutants.
How to Make a Change
There are three important things you can do to improve your indoor air quality:
- Change your air filter: this is the gateway to your HVAC system. The filter will trap most of the allergens before they can get into your heating and cooling system and then blown around your home.
- Have your HVAC system regularly serviced: regular service will keep your system running the way it should while helping to keep your air clean.
- Invest in an air filtration system: a good air filtration system can catch up to 99% of all airborne contaminants, which makes it a perfect pairing for your current heating and cooling system.
