Spring is a glorious time of year! The weather is pleasant and many are ready to seize the day and start doing more outdoor activities. Unfortunately, springtime also brings about the dreaded allergy season. The reality is, allergy flare ups cause some individuals to spend more time inside then out.

The even crazier thing is, your indoor air quality could actually be as bad as if you were outside.

Your home’s indoor air could be filled with allergens if you are not maintaining your HVAC unit and filters properly. Allergens are very sneaky and typically have no issues entering into an indoor area. Allergens can find their way in your humble abode thanks to your clothing and shoes, pets, open doors or windows, and your ventilation system.

The good news is that the answer to your question of whether or not your AC unit can help with allergies is… yes!

If you properly maintain your air conditioner you can help alleviate your allergy symptoms. So, what can you do to safeguard your home from allergens?

Here few things you can do to help control potential allergens that might be aggravating to indoor allergies:

  • Control humidity levels with a dehumidifier in damp areas to help reduce mold spores. Did you know pollutants and allergens are water soluble? Your air conditioner actually removes water from the atmosphere which removes pollutants, pollen and other allergy causing debris. Upgrading to a new high efficiency air conditioner can help control these levels as well.
  • Dust and other debris dragging in from feet or paws can be controlled by vacuuming often, especially in high traffic areas.
  • Replace your indoor air filters monthly or as recommended. Air that flows through your AC must be filtered first, or else dust and other particles could damage and back up your system. Keeping up with this task will make a huge impact on your indoor air quality. Set a reminder to visually inspect all your AC air filters throughout your home monthly and replace accordingly.
  • If you or a loved one suffers from severe allergies it is recommended to look into HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters. These filters will make your air conditioner even more effective at protecting you against allergens and other pollutants.

Your home should be a safe retreat away from allergens. The best and easiest way to fight back indoors against seasonal allergies is to work with an air conditioning specialist who can offer you a custom solution for your needs.
