Fight Fall Allergies With Your HVAC

Posted On: September 26, 2019

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. Aprilaire Air Purifier can do the following:

  • Trap 98% of pollen and mold spores
  • Permanently capture at least 97% of bacteria and fungi
  • Trap 96% of pet dander and respirable dust
  • Trap <75% of tobacco smoke and smog
  • Provide more than 10 times the filtering media used in standard 1″ furnace filters

You can also install a UV light inside your HVAC to boost indoor air quality by preventing the growth of mold or bacteria in your system.


JM Mechanical is here to ensure you and your family will breathe easy all year long. Give us a call today to find out how we can help you improve your Indoor Air Quality.

Fantastic service! From the staff I spoke with the two service and installation technicians, all were very informative and professional. I highly recommend JM Mechanical Heating and Cooling. I plan to utilize their services in the future for my semi- annual HVAC check-up!

I was impressed by their level of customer service, and they really care about customer satisfaction. The office staff are very friendly, and they follow-up to be sure everything went as expected, and really want to help if there were any issues. Brandon is exceptional, takes the time to explain what is going on and really seems to care about his customers. A+ experience.


The woman who answered the phone was very helpful and professional and she immediately gave me available times and fortunately Jason was able to come on site today, detect the problem and I ended up needing a brand new water heater after mine had been over 12 years old. Jason was incredibly professional, courteous, fast, and respectful of my home. I highly recommend JM to anyone and if I ever have trouble again they will be my FIRST call! Thank you for the exceptional service!!

Excellent service from administration to service. JM Mechanical conducts business in an honest and ethical manner at an affordable price. Service is also extremely timely. James H. has installed both a water heater and furnace at my home in the last 6 weeks. James is knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and a pleasure to do business with; I am very pleased with both jobs. Thank you JM Mechanical; I greatly appreciate your reliability, quality and integrity.

James H. and Jeff F. were prompt as per usual this morning and gave prior notification via text messaging that they were on their way. We have nothing but nice things to say about this company. They are always clear and concise on the course of action necessary to fix the problem. Every time we have used J.M. Mechanical we have been treated with the utmost respect and have never talked down to us like some other companies have done. They installed a new heat pump for us today and we couldn’t be happier with the results. They were fast and efficient in every way and we will continue to use them on any of our future needs.

Dennis M.

Always great customer service and incredibly fast service from JM Mechanical! Plus, their repairs and replacements for our apartment rentals have always been top notch. Myself and my family would gladly recommend them to anybody!
