When your allergies are bothering you, your first thought is usually to stay inside and avoid going outside unless absolutely necessary. That may not be the case. Your HVAC system could actually be the culprit.
The air quality in your home is an important factor to make sure you are protected from irritants that could be aggravating your allergies. It is important that you have your HVAC system cleaned regularly to reduce the harmful components that can build up in your system over time.
Another way to keep the air in your home clean is by regular duct cleaning by your local HVAC contractor. If you decide that you need to have your HVAC system cleaned, it is important that the HVAC technician cleans all components of the system. This will ensure that the dust that has accumulated is eliminated and that the air in your home is clean and dust free.
HVAC air filters can also help reduce the pollutants in the air. It is important to make sure you change the air filter on a regular basis. Usually it is ideal to change them every two months. If you happen to notice mold on your air filter when you change it, it is important that you call your HVAC technician as soon as possible so they can check for leaks.
For those who suffer from allergies, you may consider a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) air filter for your home. HEPA filters provide a higher level of filtration efficiency. They work by forcing air through the filter and catching the harmful elements before pushing the clean air through your HVAC system.
If your allergies have been irritation you, it may be time to call your local HVAC contractor to have a look at your HVAC system. Eliminate those pesky allergy systems and breathe in clean air all day, every day.
