If spring finds you plagued by allergies or asthma, being outside can be a miserable experience. To make matters worse, the air quality in your home can be two times more polluted than the air outside according to experts. To improve the quality of the air in your home and protect your family's health there are many options available. If you need reliable Wake Forest air conditioning service please call Choice HVAC.
Mold spores trigger many allergy sufferers. Reduce the presence of these spores and the moisture they need to grow by installing a whole home dehumidifier. Eliminating the moisture from your home also inhibits the growth of dust mites, another common allergen. Ask your Choice Heating and Air Conditioning technician about adding a whole-home dehumidifier to your existing HVAC system or including one on the install of your new air conditioner.
Remove Your Shoes
It may sound silly, but removing your shoes when you come into your home will reduce the amount of dust, dirt, pollen, and other air contaminants that are introduced into your space. Keep shoes in an area away from the main rooms in your home and away from air returns for your HVAC system.
Knick-knacks, clutter, and throw pillows collect and trap dust and other allergens in your home. Eliminate places for these particles to collect by decluttering your house. Remove excess papers, throw pillows, blankets, and other clutter to make your home easier to clean and give annoying allergens fewer places to live.
Invest in Microfiber
These cloths trap and hold dust as you wipe down furniture and other items in your home. Best of all they can be reused over and over again and are machine washable. Choose to invest in a microfiber mop head for your hard surface cleaning and further reduce allergens.
Change Your Air Filter
HVAC experts recommend that you change your home's air filter every four to six weeks depending upon the air quality in your home. A clogged or dirty air filter can keep circulating allergy-inducing particles through your system and will make your HVAC system work harder. A dirty air filter can raise your utility bill and cause damage to critical components in your HVAC system.
Ultraviolet lights can help eliminate the micro-organisms that pollute your indoor air supply. Did you know that these lights can be installed on your HVAC system to help rid the air in your home of contaminants? Ask your Choice Heating and Air Conditioning technician about this add on for your new air conditioning system.
