Are your springtime allergies acting up? With things in full bloom, it’s common to experience increased allergy symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, or itchy eyes – not just outside, but inside, too! Fortunately, you can reduce those symptoms by focusing on your indoor air quality. Here are some ways to do that.

Clean or replace your air filters.
We recommend cleaning or changing your HVAC system’s air filters bi-monthly. If you own a pet or smoke indoors, it’s best to change them monthly. Why? Your air filter captures airborne particles that make their way into the air and reduce the air quality. In other words, if your air filter is dirty, the air you breathe is likely dirty, too. This is an easy home maintenance task but has a big impact on your inside air – and your HVAC system. Clogged, dirty air filters also use more energy than required, which can put strain on the machine and cause your utility bills to skyrocket.

Install an air purification system.
Purified air in your home is a little piece of heaven. Air purifiers work alongside your existing HVAC system and provide clean air for years to come. We proudly carry and install the Reme Halo. This product is an award-winning whole home in-duct air purifier that purifies the circulated air in your home.  This process uses molecules of oxygen and hydrogen that travel through the unit, freshening and cleaning the air molecules that enter. In only 30 minutes, the machine can eliminate 99% of airborne contaminants, including bacteria, mold, allergens, indoor pollutants, and more.

Clean your ductwork.
Your ducts might not be seen, but they have a huge impact on seasonal allergies and your indoor air quality. Our duct cleaning experts provide thorough duct cleaning that will make a big difference. Our service includes a duct inspection, HEPA filtration equipment usage, dryer vent cleaning, and nylon or steel brush cleaning. This helps remove air contaminants, and reduce mold, dust, and other allergen particles from the ducts. The result: improved allergy symptoms at the peak of allergy season.

So, don’t expose yourself to dirty, contaminated indoor air any longer! You can breathe easier with these solutions from Specialty Heating and Cooling. Call us today to learn more.
