Spring is a beautiful time of year, as the trees and plants start to bloom, but this also can be a dreadful time for people that suffer from allergies and asthma. Millions of pollen get released in the air from blooming flowers. Pollen and other allergens can travel miles through the air and find their way into homes through your HVAC system. You shouldn’t have to suffer through the season in your own home when you can enjoy clean breathable air. Cleaning of your HVAC system should be a part of your spring cleaning each year.
How your HVAC System Affects Allergies
Allergens like pollen, dander, dust, and mold get circulated throughout your home through the air ducts. Breathing in this contaminated air leads to symptoms such as runny nose, itchy eyes, and coughing. Your HVAC system consists of important air filters which trap harmful pollutants, but if you’re air filters and air ducts are not cleaned or replaced on a regular basis, they continue to build up the harmful allergens, which will flow with the air through your ducts. This will cause an increase in your allergies and asthma if uncleaned. Dirty air ducts and air filters will also lead to damage of your entire HVAC system and cause it to fail.
Prepare Your System Before Spring
Preparing your HVAC system before the pollen season starts, will ensure your home is ready and prevent the pollen from entering your home through the air ducts. Having a professional perform a thorough cleaning of your air ducts and replacing your air filter, will rid your home of any accumulated contaminants so it can provide clean air flow throughout your home. This is especially important if you have asthma, allergies, or other respiratory ailments, as the spring season can trigger these health issues, and is a great time to change out the filter. Keeping your air ducts clean will help alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms and prevent attacks. Protect your home before the invasion of pollen by having your HVAC system in tip-top shape.
Air duct cleaning is a preventative measure to keep your home’s air healthy and prevent allergy and asthma attacks. Since air is constantly flowing through homes and businesses it is essential to have clean quality air. Your air filter should be replaced every 3 months and your air ducts professionally cleaned every 1 to 2 years. Scheduling regular maintenance to have your HVAC system cleaned and inspected by a professional, will keep your home’s air quality safe, your system running properly, and keep your energy bill low.
