The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and people are starting to sneeze. Allergies are already on the rise, and it is time to get rid of allergens inside the house. The house should be the one place where allergens can’t affect those who are allergy-prone, and HVAC maintenance can help.
- High Quality Filters
Remember to change the furnace filter out consistently, and also look for higher quality filters that are capable of filtering out more allergens. If a filter isn’t enough, talk to Diamond Heating and Cooling about the Micro Power Guard Air Cleaner.
- Clean Both Units
Clean off the outside AC unit to prevent as much debris from coming into the home as possible. Keep dirt, grass, leaves and other debris away from it. Also clean around the indoor unit to reduce allergens from circulating inside the house.
- Check for Mold
During furnace and AC maintenance Diamond Heating and Cooling can check the system for mold. Mold loves humid, moist places such as the furnace ducts, condensate drip pan, and evaporator coils. Also keep an eye out for mold around the house in places like the attic or basement where water damage may occur. Some types of mold not only cause allergies, but serious illness as well.
- Dust Regularly
When dusting, most people hit visible surfaces like the mantle above the fireplace, side tables, etc. However, the heating and cooling registers and return vents should be dusted just as frequently. These vents circulate air and when dusty, could circulate dust around the house.
