Preparing Your HVAC for Seasonal Allergies
With spring just around the corner, those who suffer from allergies are likely ensuring they are taking preventative measures to minimize the affects they endure once allergy seasons hits. And a big preventative measure, that not a lot of people think of, is their HVAC system – which is something Boilers & Beyond can help you with!
Allergies Due to Air Quality in Your Home
We often consider our homes to be a safe space, as they should be. But when it comes to allergies and air quality, this isn’t always the case.
Allergens can lurk in many places – including your carpets, bedding and your HVAC system, and can include such things as: dust, dander, mold, and various chemicals that could be coming through your duct system.
Exposure to such things don’t only cause immediate irritating allergies, but could also have concerning long-term affects. Which is why having your HVAC system regularly checked and maintained, plays an important role in minimizing these concerns.
Other Ways to Minimize Indoor Allergens
Other ways to help minimize your indoor allergens, along with having your HVAC system checked and maintained annually in the Lower Mainland, include:
Professional Carpet & Tile Cleaning – having your carpets and tiles professionally cleaned can also help to reduce or temporarily eliminate dust, dander and chemicals from your home.
Investing in a HEPA Filter – HEPA filter stands for ‘high-efficiency particulate air’, and is a type of mechanical air filter that works by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps harmful particles such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and tobacco smoke. If you are interested in a HEPA filter, this is something we can discuss when maintaining your HVAC system in the Fraser Valley.
Duct Cleaning – maintaining your ducts is another way to clean dust out of your internal systems at home. Ducts can hold a lot of dust and pollutants, so if you or your family has allergies – it’s a wise idea to have your ducts cleaned annually or even bi-annually.
