How Your HVAC System Can Help Spring Allergies in Missouri

clean vs. dirty air filterA statistic that many people don’t know is that your home’s indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. This means that your home has contaminants like pet dander, mold, pesticides, volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, and more. These can all affect your allergies in the spring, making your symptoms much worse.

There are ways to combat spring allergies — which include improving the air inside your home. The experts at Buckner’s Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing explore the ins and outs of reducing allergies through HVAC care.

The Importance of Proper Maintenance

Generally speaking, your HVAC systems should undergo inspections and maintenance at least twice a year: in spring for your AC unit and fall for your heating system. Proper maintenance can help prevent future problems and also improve your allergy symptoms.

Changing Filters

One simple task you can perform is to change your HVAC system filters. These get clogged with dust and other particulates, which can end up in your breathing air. Plus, a clogged filter makes your system work harder, causing more breakdowns. With a clean filter, you can reduce the dust getting pushed through your ducts. You can also install HEPA filters, which can remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, and bacteria from your air.

Regular Tune-Ups

Regular tune-ups can keep your HVAC system working efficiently. An HVAC tech will usually clean the system, tighten parts, change filters, and perform other tasks that will help reduce allergens in your air.

Clean Ductwork

Your ductwork gets dusty and dirty over time, so getting those cleaned every so often can help improve your indoor air quality. You can also check your vents for accumulated dust and pet fur.

4 Benefits of Whole-Home Air Filters

Adding a whole-home air filter to your HVAC system is a great way to combat allergy symptoms. Some benefits of whole-home air filters include:

  • Reduced risk of airborne illnesses: By cleaning the air before you breathe it, whole-home air filters will remove viruses and bacteria, which can make you sicker.
  • Relieve allergies: Whole-home air filters remove pollen, dust, and other allergy-causing particles from the air, so when you’re inside your home, your body has a chance to rest from fighting.
  • Ease asthma symptoms: Some people experience asthma symptoms with allergies. Cleaner air can help those with asthma breathe easier inside the home.
  • Better sleep: When you’re sick or battling allergies, your body needs time to rest. Cleaner air will give you a better night’s sleep, allowing your body to recover.
