Allergies are the culprit of every season. They can stem from the smallest, most infuriating places! From puffy eyes to itchy throats, it seems like you’ll never win.
Your AC is one factor that aids in keeping the air quality of your home crisp and clean. When you ignore your HVAC system’s role in indoor air quality, you can expect your allergies to only get worse. Take some time to navigate your home with these anti-allergen tips and tricks.
Change your filters
When your filters are neglected, dust particles and other allergens build up and become trapped. Ultimately, the only place for them to go is right back into your home. Be sure to change your filters every couple of months, at least.
Control your humidity at home
Make sure your AC is doing its job! When your home is rather warm, it can become somewhat damp. This type of environment can accumulate allergens rapidly throughout your system, creating mold and nasty bacteria.
Clean around your AC system
Not only does your HVAC system have to be clean, but its surrounding area does as well. Otherwise, allergens can make their way through your system and begin to build up.
Dust can come from a variety of things: stuff animals, cluttered spaces, bed sheets or carpeting. Take time throughout the week to scope out anything that needs a good wash or two. Secondly, clean surfaces with a damp cloth. Say no to feather dusters!
