Fall allergies have arrived. If you find yourself suffering, we have a few tips to help fight your fall allergies by improving your indoor air quality. Not only is it important for the air inside your home to be a comfortable temperature, you want the quality of the air to be good as well. While some things may be out of your control, there are little things you can do around your home to improve the quality of the air that you and your family are breathing in on a daily basis. This time of year is a great time to do some indoor maintenance to your home and HVAC system to help improve your allergy symptoms. Your premier HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks have a few tips to improve your indoor air quality from Royal Heating & Air.
Check Your Filters
Fall is a great time to check your air filters. As your system runs, it will circulate the dust and dirt throughout your home causing your allergies to flare up even more. Dirty filters don't trap the dirt as efficiently as clean or new filters would. It is recommended to clean or change your air filters every couple of months. As the dust settles in your home, be sure to keep your surfaces clean and dust free. The excess dust will irritate seasonal allergies, so staying on top of your cleaning regimen will help reduce symptoms.
Keep Your Floors Clean
One of the easiest ways to keep pollutants out of the air in your home is to clean your floors regularly. Allergens easily settle and accumulate on the floors of your home. From carpet to tile or wood flooring, you want to keep them all clean. By vacuuming often, you reduce pollen, pet dander, and dust mites. Mopping the floors picks up the dust that's left after vacuuming. To keep your floors from getting too dirty in the first place, be sure to put a doormat down for people to wipe their shoes on. You can even ask people to take their shoes off at the door to cut down on the pollutants brought into your home.
Invest In a Whole-Home Humidifier
As the cooler weather approaches, we switch from air conditioning to heat. As this switch happens, the dry air from your system can cause the same symptoms as your allergies. If you are already suffering from allergies, the heat can irritate your symptoms even more. A whole-home humidifier can help relieve your symptoms by adding moisture back into the air. The whole-home humidifier covers more square feet of home, as well as, adjusts automatically to your homes humidity level. Give us a call and we can help you understand the benefits of a whole home humidifier system.
Keep Your AC Clean
Keeping your HVAC unit clean is another great way to improve your indoor air quality, and you're giving your system a longer life in the process. Make sure leaves and other outside debris is clear from your unit to help it run efficiently. Be sure to check the coils and drip pan regularly too.
