Indoor Air Quality & Allergies – What to Do?!

The temperature may be below freezing with wind that takes your breath away. But believe it or not, spring is a mere 5 weeks away! So, it’s time to start preparing for the warmer weather and the potential air quality issues that can come with it. Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC Company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we have several years of experience with indoor air quality. There are a lot of ways to help keep the air clean and fresh this spring. Read on to learn some of our favorite tips! 


Spring is a beautiful time of year. Who doesn’t love the end of winter, sunny days, and blooming flowers? If you have allergies or asthma, however, spring could be a frustrating and difficult time for you. As all of those gorgeous plants and flowers are blooming, they are also releasing pollen into the air. This pollen can cause allergic reactions like itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, and headache. For some it can be so bad that they have to take medication throughout the whole season and can hardly function when exposed to too much pollen. These particles can end up inside the home by hitching a ride on clothes or blowing in through an open window.

If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms or allergic reactions inside your home, it might mean that your air filter is overdue for a replacement. Each type lasts for a different amount of time before it needs to be replaced. Once it is full, it can no longer efficiently filter the air in your home, and harmful materials and allergens circulate through the air in your home causing difficulties.


Another common allergen that could be causing issues for you and your family is dust and the resulting dust mites. Dust can be an agitator that causes inflammation in your respiratory system. This makes it more difficult to breathe clearly and freely. Your body may be trying to tell you something by sneezing more often when you are indoors, trying to remove the dust particles from your nasal passages.

Your air conditioning unit and the compressor could also be dirty and clogged, which limits the airflow indoors. With limited airflow, less fresh air is being circulated inside your home. This can cause allergens to settle and continue to give you respiratory issues.

Mold & Bacteria

Another source of respiratory concern is mold and bacteria. If these harmful materials are circulated inside your home and then breathed in by you and your family members, you could be in danger of getting sick more often. These pathogens can come from a lot of different sources: pet accidents, particles getting kicked up from the carpet, tracked-in substances from shoes, improperly cleaned portable humidifiers, and many more.

Royal Heating & Air can help remove bacteria and mold from the air inside your home by installing an HVAC UV Light System. This system uses ultraviolet light to destroy harmful materials and sterilize the air that passes through the light. Imagine how much cleaner the air in your home could be with a sanitizing UV light system in your HVAC!
