This year’s winter was unfamiliar to many recent Colorado transplants, but the natives will sure remember winters like what we had this year, similar to those of yesteryear. With avalanches galore, and snow that made for perfect skiing, and rain that occurs daily. However, the days of freezing temperatures and layers of clothes are disappearing while the days of sunshine, warmer weather, and green leaves are upon us.
Whether you prefer to spend the springtime at a Rockies game or in the garden doing yard work, the large amounts of pollen circulating throughout the air can only mean one thing: its allergy season! You may think that staying inside as much as possible will limit your exposure, but have you ever thought about the countless allergens coming into your home through your air filter? Check out these 5 ways to use your HVAC unit to alleviate allergies in your household this season!
Ways To Use Your HVAC Unit to Alleviate Allergies
Dust Your Vents
If dusting shelves, cabinets, and blinds are on your spring cleaning list, don’t forget about vents and registers. These two areas are often passed over when people begin dusting their homes; however, dusty registers and vents negatively affect the quality of air in your home. Make sure to dust or vacuum vents and registers often to allow you and your family to breathe easily.
Keep the Right Level of Humidity in Your Home
When the level of humidity in your home is too high or too low, it can often cause discomfort and heighten allergies. A humidity level that is too high can cause mold to grow while a low humidity level can lead to dry skin and clogged pores. By upgrading your system or using a humidifier throughout your home, you can always be sure that the level of humidity in your home is just right!
Schedule an HVAC Maintenance Appointment
Some homeowners are unaware that their system often requires a regular maintenance visit. Maintenance appointments can often reduce the number of allergens that are allowed to enter your home. Regular maintenance appointments can also fix issues within your system before they become major problems that can be costly.
