HVAC Tips for Allergy Sufferers

Springtime is known for allergies. As the weather gets warmer, the allergies get worse! Dust mites and mold are some of the biggest allergens that seem to increase during the spring. Here are some HVAC maintenance tips to help cut down on the task of dusting and decrease your sneezing!

1) Dirty Filters: If you haven’t cleaned your filters this month, now is the time to do it. You should be checking your air filters monthly as debris or dirt stuck in your filter can cause harmful air in your home. Filters can last up to three months (depending on the type) but only if you take care of them!

2) Take a walk outside and clean the dirt that is on and around your AC unit. Even if you have covered it for the past season – leaves and dirt (and even critters!) could still be in there. If you have an indoor AC unit, be sure to check on that as well.

3) Give us a call! Spring is a great time for an HVAC tune-up and checks since summer is when a lot of people tend to run into problems with their HVAC unit. We want to make sure we find any issues before they become even bigger problems.
