How to Relieve Fall Allergy Symptoms with Your HVAC System
While spring gets all the notoriety and bad rep when it comes to causing allergy flare-ups, people with allergies should also be wary of allergens that are present during the fall season.
This autumn, you can count on your home’s HVAC system to help keep those allergy symptoms at bay. This article from air conditioner replacement company Ainsworth & Co. Air Conditioning – Heating shows you how.
Special Air Filters
High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) filters are designed to effectively block fine particles like dust and ragweed pollen. If you have seasonal fall allergies, using a HEPA filter instead of or in addition to standard air filters can help prevent these allergens from entering your home and aggravating your allergy symptoms. Just remember to clean or replace your filters every three months, or more often if needed.
In addition to air filters, you can also use air purification systems to make your indoor air cleaner and safer to breathe. Consult your HVAC repair company for the type of air purifying unit that will work best for your home.
You might notice that your allergy symptoms seem to worsen as the leaves begin to fall and temperatures start to drop. While cold temperatures don’t necessarily foster mold growth, the sudden increase in usage of indoor heating creates moisture, which in turn increases the risk of mold growth. As people with allergies might be aware, mold is a notorious allergen, not to mention a health hazard. Regulating your home’s indoor temperature reduces the chances of mold growth. Program your smart thermostat to provide optimal temperatures all throughout the house.
Don’t let allergies stop you from enjoying a cozy fall season. Contact your preferred HVAC company today to make the most of of your heating and cooling systems.
