Spring HVAC Maintenance Tips
As we know the return of warmer temperatures come with airborne particles like pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and mold making it difficult to breath for some. There's maintenance that can be done to your home HVAC system that will keep allergens from coming into your home.
- Check Your HVAC System Filters
Dirty filters cause allergy flare ups and will overwork your HVAC system leading to repairs. Filters need to be checked every month and replaced every 3 months. This will help keep allergens from spreading and your HVAC system will keep working efficiently.
- Get An Air Conditioning Tune Up
When your HVAC system’s evaporator and condenser coils are dirty, it will result in inefficiency and a struggle to remove humidity from the air. A coil cleaning and other preventative maintenance work is recommended. Having an air conditioning tune up, could help stop an air conditioner allergy problem before it starts.
- Upgrade to HEPA (High Energy Particulate Air) Filters
A HEPA filter is designed to trap smaller particles such as bacteria, mold, and pollen. They are made of layers of fiber glass that can block about 99% of particles responsible for your air conditioner allergy.
- Get a Duct Cleaning
If your air conditioning system is not operating properly or if you have an inefficient filter, different allergens including pollen, mold, and mildew can make their way to your ductwork where they accumulate and are circulated throughout your home. A duct cleaning will improve air quality and the efficiency of your air conditioning system.
- Get a Home Dehumidifier
If you have mold problems or struggle with high humidity levels indoors, a home dehumidifier can help. The dehumidifier works with your existing HVAC system keeping humidity levels in check. Dust mites and other allergens thrive in moist environments, a dehumidifier is will keep them at bay.
- Get UV Lights
UV Lights in the duct work eliminate allergens from your HVAC unit. They kill germs, dust, dust mites, mold, and mildew.
