How HVAC maintenance can help your spring allergies

Posted on: May 16, 2016

The sun is out and the flowers are in full bloom, which means allergy season is upon us. Are you escaping the pollen and other allergens by taking refuge in your home? Unfortunately, your cooling system is affected by the weather, too. With build-up of dust pollen, mold, and other indoor allergens, your unit may have a negative effect on your health. So how can you make sure you stay healthy during the spring and early summer? HVAC maintenance is a great place to start.

Do you live in the Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC area and need a tune-up for your HVAC system? Call 240-399-5051 to speak with the cooling experts at James A. Wheat & Sons today!

Our spring HVAC Maintenance tips

Did you know that getting routine inspections for your HVAC system not only improves its performance, but also helps create a healthier indoor environment for you and your family. Are you wondering what you can do to keep your unit running smoothly and efficiently while keeping you healthy and happy? Make sure you:

  • Check the air filter in your HVAC system. Because your system is catching dust, pollen, and a variety of other pollutants in the air, your air filter should be cleaned out every 30 to 60 days!
  • Inspect your ducts for mold. As dust, dirt, and mold accumulate in your system, it’s a good idea to have your ducts checked and cleaned professionally every so often.
  • Thoroughly clean around your indoor unit. This will help keep dust out and prevent clogs in the condensate drain.
  • Consider adding a whole-house humidifier to your home. This can help prevent mold growth while reducing the population of dust mites in your space.
