As the temperatures start to drop this fall, you’ll need to make sure that your indoor air is clean and safe to breathe. If you or a family member suffers from allergies, then you should know that an HVAC installation is your best defense against mold and other unwanted allergens, odors and pollutants. However, if it’s not properly maintained, you can experience poor indoor air quality and increased allergy symptoms during the fall season. To help you out, A/C and Refrigeration shares a few tips you need to consider below:
Check Your Air Filters
Before the treated air circulates throughout your home’s interiors, it goes through your HVAC’s filters first. They should always be clean to ensure your air stays healthy and safe to breathe. They get dirty after a few months, sometimes even less depending on your usage. If you don’t replace your dirty filters immediately, they won’t effectively keep out the dirt, allergens, and other contaminants.
Dirty filters also clog the air circulation, forcing your HVAC to work harder than necessary. This consumes more energy and leads to premature breakdowns. You’ll also end up with higher utility bills! To avoid unnecessary HVAC repair and relieve your allergy problems, make it a habit to change your filters regularly, or clean them if you have a permanent filter.
Install an Air Purification System
You should also consider investing in an air purification system this fall season. Indoor air quality systems from Reme Halo effectively catch the unwanted pollutants and particles in the air. These systems are perfect for those who suffer from severe allergies and asthma. Air cleaning systems such as the Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner are also effective in keeping your indoor air free of allergies. They’re capable of removing up to 99.98 percent of airborne particles and other pollutants!
