Looking for an Allergy-free Season?! 

These are some of the things that you need to consider:

Clean up the area surrounding the HVAC units both outdoors and indoors.

Through your HVAC system, your outdoor air conditioning unit draws outside air inside your home. The accumulation of dust and debris surrounding the indoor units will spread throughout your house.

Purchase High-Quality Filters

A filthy filter won’t be able to catch dirt. Your units will become less effective as a result. Less expensive filters are designed to protect the machinery; they are not very effective at capturing the small particles that trigger allergy season sneezing and wheezing.

Maintain the cleanliness of your registers and return vents.
Use a moist or treated rag to wipe these down to avoid kicking the dust back up.
Adjust your indoor humidity levels

If mold or spores trigger your allergies, reduce the indoor humidity to under 60%. 

Replace old equipment

Newer systems tend to offer the best protection against indoor allergens. It might be preferable to completely replace your heating and cooling system if you’ve had it for a decade or if it’s broken. To make the most of your system’s capacity to combat allergies, make sure you have routine maintenance.

Add an Air Purifier

When you learn about the typical air contaminants in your house, you might grimace. Microplastics, mold, pet dander, home cleansers, pollen, and worse could be inhaled by you. While unwinding at home, the air pollutants that you breathe in can actually cause a number of allergic reactions.

A whole-house air purifier might be a good addition to your system. It’s advised that this is one of the best things you can do to enhance the quality of the air within your home. You can lessen your exposure to common allergies by using an air purifier. As a result, after adding the purifier, you can feel a noticeable improvement and begin to feel better.
