One of the most annoying parts of spring can be dealing with itchy noses, sore throats and watery eyes. Whether you’re not affected by allergies or struggle with them daily, air quality has a significant impact on your well-being. The air that we breathe every day matters, whether we want it to or not! Instead of putting up with unwanted allergens in your home, investing in a solution can improve your health long term.
Here at Air Tech of Pasadena, we understand the struggles of HVAC appliances in spring weather. The presence of allergens and dust decreases air quality, leading to allergy symptoms. To avoid worse air quality in the spring, invest in tests and filters to remove harmful allergens.
Avoiding Allergy Symptoms In Pasadena
There are many different allergens that can become very prevalent during the spring here in Texas. The most common of these are ragweed, grass pollen and tree pollen. While they may not seem harmful on their own, allergens can be a painful experience. The best ways to avoid allergies are by taking good care of your HVAC system, such as:
Cleaning And HVAC Maintenance
Cleaning out your AC and heating systems serves a very important role in your fight against allergies, which is preventing buildup of irritants. Preventing buildup of dust, debris and allergens allows for indoor air quality to remain cleaner when your HVAC system runs for long periods of time so that you inhale less irritating allergens.
This is also a reason that HVAC systems need regular maintenance. Filters shield against allergens, but buildup can significantly decrease the efficiency of even the best filters. Making sure to replace your filters every 3 to 6 months can prevent buildup and keep allergens out of your home.
Invest In HEPA Filters
One of the best ways to combat allergens in your house is to look into filters specialized against allergens. HEPA filters, or high-efficiency particulate air filters, take out over 99.7% of bacteria, dust, mold and different allergens.
Specialization of air filters and finding out what works best for your unit is an effective way to address spring allergies while remaining in your budget for maintenance and upkeep.
