The beautiful sights of spring are all around us, but unfortunately, that means that so is the pollen. When you go outside, your allergies can really act up in response, but when you don’t have a quality system in place for indoor air quality control, the inside of your home may be just as prone to contaminants, if not more so. Try these tips to reduce allergens indoors and make it a little bit easier for those with asthma and other respiratory conditions.
Change Your Filter
The air filter was originally designed to keep debris from damaging the indoor portion of your air conditioner or your heating system. But today, filters do far more to control the air quality within your home, but only if you keep your filter clean. Change or replace the filter regularly according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and consider choosing a filter with a higher MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value), which can eliminate even more particles from the air.
Try Additional Air Cleaners
If you want to make sure that even more harmful contaminants are eliminated from the air, you can call a technician to install a whole-home air cleaner which works with your HVAC system to get rid of smaller particles from the air. Choose from an electronic air purifier or a UV air purifier, which specifically targets living microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses.
Schedule Duct Cleaning
Duct cleaning involves the use of professional-grade vacuums and other tools which help to eliminate the particles which build up in the ducts over the years. This is quite an involved process, and not something for an amateur to take on. But once completed, you can rest easy knowing that the air your family breathes as you run your heating and air conditioning system is safe from issues such as bacteria, viruses, mold, pollen, and pet dander.
