The spring weather slowly approaches and soon, everything around us will start to bloom. While it’s a beautiful sight, not everyone appreciates the increase in pollen and other irritants that come along with spring’s allergy season.
Although you can’t do much about allergens outdoors, there are a few ways you can keep your home a sanctuary from itchy, watery eyes and constant sneezing.
Regularly Change Air Conditioner Filters
Air conditioner filters help keep your cooling system clean and the air in your home healthy. To keep allergens at bay inside your home, it’s extremely important to change your air filters regularly. Additionally, you must ensure that you’re using the correct filter for your cooling system and your specific needs. Use the MERV rating listed on filters to find the perfect one for your home.
Install a Whole-Home Air Purification System
Whole-home air purification systems are installed directly to your HVAC system, ensuring all the air running through your ductwork is delivered clean and healthy. Purification systems can scrub your home of microscopic dust mites, mold spores and infectious bacteria and viruses—keeping the distressing allergy season side effects out of your home. We offer a number of different systems and our experts are always available to help you find the right model for your needs.
Keep Allergens Out of Your Home
Pollen and other allergens can make their way inside your home in a variety of ways: on your clothes, the soles of your shoes or even with your pets. Establish a regular cleaning routine to help keep your home a refuge from allergy season. Launder linens regularly and make sure to clean or replace your pillows. Shake out rugs and doormats and if you have pets, make sure they get regular baths.
