For most people, spring is the season of clear sunny days and blossoming flowers and trees. Some others, however, have to turn to our professionals at Premier Comfort AC for help keeping pollen and other spring allergens out of their home to prevent seasonal allergies. The heating and air conditioning system you have has a lot to do with the quality of your indoor air, and when you’re battling allergies all season long, you definitely want your HVAC system to be on your side.
Indoor air quality can be affected by a lot of different factors, one of which is the quality of your air conditioning system. Here our experts at Premier Comfort Heating and Air, LLC, walk you through a few tips on how to use your HVAC system to survive spring with as few sniffles as possible.
Humidity Is Your Enemy
High-moisture environments make the ideal breeding grounds for mold, mildew and other bacteria. Consider asking your contractor about retrofitting a dehumidifier in your heating and cooling system to help you regulate humidity levels. If this isn’t an option for you, simply turning on your air conditioner or blower fan can help increase air circulation and keep moisture at reasonable levels.
Regular Maintenance Is Key
Our experts advise regular filter changes at least once every 30 days. You can do this more frequently depending on how many contaminants are in your home. A good rule of thumb is to visually inspect the filter to see if it’s fully saturated with dust every one or two weeks. Additionally, you should have your whole system inspected, tuned and maintained professionally at least once a year to ensure it doesn’t affect your indoor air quality.
Upgrading to a Better System
If frequent air conditioner repair or troubleshooting is getting to be a little much, consider replacing your entire HVAC system with a newer, more efficient model. Take a look at features that focus on air quality to help alleviate common springtime allergy problems.
