Six Ways to Use Your HVAC System To Alleviate Allergies

It's the time of year when flowers bloom again and the weather gets warmer. The allergy season is back, however. There are ways to combat allergies using your HVAC system. Here are our top 6 tips to help alleviate allergies with your HVAC system.

High-Quality filters available for purchase

Your air filters can be the best way you can improve the quality of your indoor air. Filters are measured using Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values (MERVs), which measure the degree of particle filtration. 20 is considered the highest MERV rating. A MERV rating above 20 is most useful in allergy season. However, an 8 rating will probably be more beneficial. They are more efficient when trying to trap smaller particles. Do not forget to change your filter every 3 months. Change your filters more often if you have pets or notice mold growth on them. This will ensure that your filter works efficiently.

Dust your vents

Dust, dust... and dust more! While dusting shelves, cabinets and blinds is a common spring chore, don’t forget about vents and registers. These two areas are often neglected when people dust their homes. This causes dusty vents and registers to negatively affect the quality of air in your home. Your family's ability to breathe easier will be improved if registers are regularly vacuumed and cleaned.

Clean Around Your Indoor and Outdoor Unit

Your HVAC system will draw the air from outside to your home and then circulate it throughout your home. The important thing to do is ensure that the air entering your home is as clean as it can be. You must inspect your outdoor unit frequently and remove any debris. Maintaining a clean unit will make it run more efficiently. Dust and debris can be circulated through the indoor unit to remove them from the home. What does all this mean? This means that you need to clean and dust any HVAC units inside.

You must maintain the proper level of humidity within your home

The humidity level in your house can make allergies worse and cause discomfort. An excessive humidity level can lead to the growth of mold, and a low level can cause dry skin. You can make sure your home is always at the right humidity level by installing a humidifier.

It is important to regularly replace your filters

Replace your air filters. This is a simple way to reduce allergies. This will help reduce outdoor allergens by regularly changing out your filters. Air filters should be replaced every three months. If you have pets, change them every two weeks!

Schedule an HVAC Maintenance Appointment to Receive Regular Maintenance

Many homeowners are not aware that their system needs to be maintained regularly. Regular maintenance appointments can help to reduce the number of allergens allowed into your home. It is important to schedule regular maintenance so that any problems can be addressed before they escalate into major problems that can lead to significant financial loss. HVAC Contractors, San Diego wants to make sure that this doesn't happen!
