It’s allergy season again.
Here is some useful information about some common indoor allergens, as well as some ways to help control them.
Do you have pets? Pet dander is something you may have to contend with. When your pet sheds hair, dead skin flakes are also produced. These flakes, along with your pet’s urine and saliva, can cause allergies.
To minimize pet dander, brush and bathe your pet regularly.
Be sure to vacuum at least once a week, focusing on high traffic areas. The vacuum should have a HEPA filter to keep the dander from flowing through the air as you clean.
A HEPA-filtered air purifier can also help, especially in locations where the pets are active.
Dust mites are the bane of asthmatic and allergic people. They love areas such as bedding and rugs.
Controlling dust mites can be a challenge due to their small size.
Just like with pet dander, you’ll want to vacuum at least once a week. Again, the vacuum should be equipped with a HEPA filter.
Wash bedding and upholstery once a week in hot water (130 degrees Fahrenheit). If you have delicate materials, you can try placing in a vacuum sealed bag for 2-3 days. You can buy special covers for your pillows and mattress to help control dust mites.
To help keep the dust mites from multiplying, you can try running a dehemidifer.
Have you had an HVAC system checkup lately? Condensation and leaks can lead to indoor mold. Spores from molds are extremely hazardous.
Contact Service Tech today for your next HVAC tune-up. Be sure to ask about our money-saving Preferred Customer Club.
Speaking of mold… Molds grow in damp places, including bathrooms and kitchens as well as out-of-the-way locations like basements and attics.
Mold should be dealt with, as it can cause potentially lethal issues. Look out for leaking pipes and damp areas. As with dust mites, you can use a dehumidifier to help control the mold.
Mold can be cleaned from non-porous, hard surfaces with bleach and water.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Service Tech for recommendations.
Does your A/C keep tripping your circuit breaker?
If your circuit breaker is constantly tripping, and you’ve determined the culprit is your air conditioner, you need to find out what’s going on.
The circuit breaker defends your equipment from overcurrents and prevents fires. Don’t keep resetting the breaker and walking away.
Here are some common causes for your AC unit tripping the breaker.
- The motor is having an issue. The motor in your air conditioner unit can really work overtime in the brutal Alabama summers. The motor shorting out can definitely cause a breaker trip.
- The compressor is having an issue. The compressor is the heart of your AC system. If it’s having an issue, you’ll need to get it looked at as soon as possible. It might be having trouble getting started or it might be grounded.
- Dirty air filter or outside unit. Have you had a maintenance check or cleaning lately? Also, are you keeping up with your air filter? Be sure to check it regularly. Check out Service Tech’s tips on maintaining your air filters below.
If you have questions about your AC unit, contact your friends at Service Tech today. We’d be happy to help.
“When should I change my air filter?”
Good question. Everyone is aware of the necessity to change out the air filters in their home.
But, how often does one need to?
There are several factors involved in determining the optimal time, including the following:
- Are there any smokers in the house?
- Do you have cats, dogs, or other pets?
- What is the air quality in your city?
- The type and quality of your filter
- Does anyone in the house suffer from allergies?
If your household consists of pets and/or smoker, and if your area has lots of dust and allergens, we recommend replacing your filters every 30 days.
The longest interval recommended would be 90 days for those with regular filters. Please note: specialty filters may have their own specific guidelines. Please follow those.
