Summer in Oregon is one of the best times of the year. Unfortunately for those living with allergies, it can be miserable dealing with the high pollen count. When you come back from your outdoor adventures, it’s important to have an inside space that boasts great air quality, so you can breathe easily. Here are some tips to improve indoor air quality and minimize those annoying summer allergies.

#1: Stay on top of air filter changes.

This is one of the easiest home maintenance items to take care of, but unfortunately, it’s easily neglected. If you forget about regular air filter cleaning or changes, dirt and debris can build up on the filter and make their way into the inside air. We recommend cleaning or changing filters every 1 to 2 months, especially during the summer. This will keep air flowing smoothly, bolster energy efficiency, and help contribute to cleaner air.

#2: Make an appointment for a professional tune-up.

It’s imperative that you perform annual tune-ups on your air conditioning system. With annual maintenance by experienced HVAC professionals from Specialty Heating and Cooling, you can relax knowing your machine is running properly and efficiently, and that there are no potential problem spots that could cause a breakdown or expensive repair later.

#3: Consider installing an air purification system.

Air purifiers are an ideal to keep air clean inside. They help remove bacteria, allergens, and other molecules that cause poor indoor air quality. At Specialty Heating and Cooling, we can help you determine which air purifier is right for your home. These systems work alongside most existing heating and cooling systems, so you can benefit from clean air all year long.

Summer allergies or asthma can turn a beautiful and sunny summer into something gloomy. That’s why it’s important to take steps to breathe clean air. After all, clean air contributes to a healthier, more active lifestyle! At Specialty Heating and Cooling, we are dedicated to providing solutions that contribute to better indoor air quality, that’s rid of allergens or harmful pollutants.

Or, if it’s time to replace your air conditioning system with one that is new and more energy efficient, we’d love to hep with that, too! We look forward to talking with you.
