6 Ways to Use Your HVAC Systems for Allergy Relief

It's that period of the year again... flowers start to bloom and temperatures are getting warmer. This also means that the allergy season is back. Your HVAC system can be used to fight allergy season. Here are our top six tips to reduce allergies using your HVAC system:

High-Quality Filters

Your home's air filter system is the best way of improving the air quality. The Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) of filters is used to measure particle filtration. 20 is the maximum MERV rating. During allergy season, however, a MERV rating higher than 20 will be most helpful. They work better when you are trying to trap small particles. Your air filters must be changed at least every 3 months. To ensure your filter functions efficiently, you should change them more frequently if your pet has an allergy or mold problem.

Dust your Vents

Dust, dust, and then dust some more! Most likely, you will be dusting shelves and blinds. However, don't forget those registers or vents! These are the areas most people overlook when they dust their homes. This leads to dusty registers or vents that can adversely affect the quality of the air in your house. For your family to have a better quality of air, make sure you vacuum the registers and vents.

Clean Around Your Indoor and Outdoor Unit

The HVAC system pumps the air from outside your house into your HVAC system. It then circulates the air throughout your home. The most important thing is to make sure the air being pulled into your home is clean. You need to check your outdoor unit often and remove all debris. It will run more efficiently if it is kept clean. The indoor unit can also be used for the recirculation of dust and debris. What does this all mean? Dusting and cleaning the area around any HVAC units is also a good idea.

Make sure your home has the right amount of humidity

It can be uncomfortable and aggravate allergies if the humidity level in your home is too low or high. Humidity levels that are too high can encourage mold growth. Conversely, low humidity levels can cause dry skin and blocked pores. By installing a humidifier in every room of your house, you can ensure the humidity is at its highest level.

Regularly Replace Your Filters

To alleviate allergies, it is as easy as changing your air filters. It is possible to reduce the risk of allergens from outside by replacing your air filters more often. We recommend changing your air filters approximately every three to four months. Pet owners should replace their air filters every 2 months.

Schedule an HVAC Maintenance appointment for regular maintenance

It is common for homeowners to not realize that their system requires regular maintenance visits. Regular maintenance appointments can reduce the allergens that can get into your home. Also, regular maintenance appointments can fix problems in your system before they become costly. HVAC Contractors San Diego are here to help you prevent this from happening.
