To many people, the fall season is one of the best times of the year, marked by vibrant hues and frosty weather. To others, it just means another bout of seasonal allergies. Much like spring, the fall season triggers certain plants and trees to bloom and release pollen into the air, which in turn triggers an allergic response in some people. Luckily, your heating and air conditioning system can help minimize the effects of fall allergy symptoms.
Let our HVAC experts at M&M Heating & Air Conditioning give you some pointers on how to shore up your home against fall allergens so you can enjoy this beautiful season in comfort.
Schedule a routine heater inspection and tune-up in the late summer or early fall. This will not only get your heating system prepared for the coming months of continued use, it will also remove any potential allergy-causing particles from air circulation. Mold and mildew, dust, pet dander and pet fur all accumulate on your HVAC filters over time, which is why seasonal cleaning and regular filter changes can aid greatly in eliminating this common source of fall allergies.
While your heating system is great at maintaining a toasty temperature inside your home, the air it circulates can get a little dry. Dry air doesn’t trigger allergies, but it can worsen the symptoms you experience. Consider installing a humidifier to resolve this common problem. If possible, choose a whole-home humidifier system, which can provide many other benefits to your health.
Duct Cleaning Services
The ducts that transport air from your air cooler and heater units throughout your home are prone to all sorts of contaminants that lower your indoor air quality. Be sure to make use of a professional duct cleaning service at least once every few years to get rid of any possible allergens lurking in your vents.
