Welcome back to our continuing series on fall allergies and how to combat them in your home. In our previous post, we looked at where the allergens in your home come from. Chemicals in your home, pet hair, dirt, pollen, and mold all contribute to the polluted air that exists in your home. One common misconception is that your HVAC unit filters your air or brings in large amounts of air from the outside of your house to the inside.

For many people, fall allergies are worse than spring. Maintaining good air quality in your home is the secret to surviving the season without having to load up on allergy medication. One of the best ways to combat poor air quality in your home is through the installation of a HEPA air filter. Constructed with thousands of glass fibers instead of paper-like traditional filters, HEPA filters can trap up to 99% of allergens that are in the air in your home.
Having your furnace cleaned and serviced before you need to turn it on can help reduce the amount of dirt and dust in the air. A clean furnace puts out better airflow and it works better. This means your allergy symptoms and your energy bill will decrease. If your allergies are severe, you may want to consider having your ductwork professionally cleaned. Rodents, mold, dirt, and bugs can hide in your ductwork and aggravate allergies.
Resist the urge to open the windows in your home. Letting in the unfiltered air increases the demand on your HVAC unit and introduces allergens into your home. Keeping windows and doors closed allows your HEPA filter to clean the air in your home more thoroughly as it cycles. When new pollutants have been introduced the workload on your HVAC system increases and your filters will clog faster.
Humidifiers, duct sealing, and other services can help reduce the allergens in your home even further. Want to know more? Let the HVAC professionals at Choice Heating and Air Conditioning help you improve the air quality in your home with a dehumidifier. Installing a dehumidifier can help reduce the growth of mold in your home and prevent the creation of hospitable environments for dust mites.
It is estimated that most people spend 90% of their time indoors. Make sure that the air you breathe is clean and comfortable.
