Fight Fall Allergies With Your HVAC
It’s official, fall is finally here and so are the allergens. Seasonal allergies affect many people here in the tri-state area. From sneezing, coughing, runny noses and itchy and watery eyes, allergy sufferers are well aware of how quickly the change of the seasons can affect day to day life. Ragweed is the biggest cause when it comes to fall allergies. Mold also increases as the temperatures start to cool off. Fortunately, there are simple solutions to keep you from suffering from allergy symptoms this fall.
Adjusting Your HVAC For Fall Allergies
It’s no secret that a well-maintained system is important for not only the longevity of the equipment but for the air you breathe in your home. If you or members of your family suffer from allergies, it is a good idea to consider replacing your air filter with hypoallergenic filters. They are specially designed to trap allergens and improve the air quality in your home. If your filter isn’t trapping the particles, they are circulating your home and the air you breathe. It is also a good idea to make sure you change your filter every month to ensure it is doing the best possible job.
For serious allergy sufferers, consider making the investment to install a whole home air purifier. Here at JM Mechanical we use Aprilaire Air Purifiers. Air cleaner installation can control airborne contaminants, including the bacteria and viruses that can pose a risk to your health, regardless of how strong or vulnerable your immune system is.
