If you suffer from allergies, being outside in the summer can be miserable. The hot stuffy air plus all the allergens can make it difficult to breathe. Not only should your home offer relief from the humid air that is hard to breathe, but also from allergens. Your home is a place you will spend a majority of the time, so you will want the air to be in the best condition possible. If there are any issues with it, or the HVAC system, always make sure to contact us as soon as possible. That way we can inspect the air quality in the home.
Allergies and changing the Filter
There are several things to do in order to help keep the air in the best condition possible. One of the most important things is to check the air filter. The filter is designed to capture the dirt, dust, and allergens in the home. This reduces the chance of it being blown around your home again. Never run the air conditioner without a filter. If there is not a filter, then the dirt and dust keeps being circulated back into the air of your home again. This causes issues with not only breathing, but may make your eyes itch, or cause a scratchy throat. Over time it can also lead to dust building up on furniture or appliances in the home.
Also invest in an air purifier for the whole home. This will also help to remove the allergens that agitate your breathing. When recommended, the purifier should also be cleaned out. It also will serve as a second line of defense at removing these particles, which will help make the air clean again. If you have pets or anyone smokes in the home, having an air purifier will help remove unwanted odors as well. Contact us and we can advise you on the right model for your home and household.
