You spring clean your home but what about your HVAC? With blooming flowers and warmer weather comes pesky pollen and other seasonal allergens. Include maintenance of your HVAC system into your spring cleaning routine to ensure only fresh, healthy air circulates inside your home. Keep reading for tips to Improve your indoor air quality in the spring.
Replace Your Filters Birmingham
Like many parts of your HVAC system, filters are easily forgotten. Out of sight, out of mind. But changing your air filter is one of the easiest ways to improve your indoor air quality in the spring, as well as the rest of the year. Replacing your air filter this spring (and every 2-3 months) needs to be at the top of your spring cleaning list. Routine changing is especially necessary in warmer climates where you rely on the air conditioner often. Your air filter works hard to trap contaminants from entering the air in your home, but a dirty air filter has the opposite effect, and leads to a whole host of problems down the road.
Cleaner House, Cleaner Air in Alabama
We probably don’t need to remind you of the importance of a clean home. However, large accumulations of dust and pollen throughout your home can make their way into the air and cause allergies or difficulties for those with asthma. To make sure your home is super clean, you may want to consider purchasing a vacuum with an HEPA filter. These filters can remove over 99% of allergens as they clean, keeping both your space and the air clean rather than kicking dust up into the air. This is especially handy in carpeted spaces where allergens such as pet dander are harder to see.
Clear Out Those Ducts
Don’t neglect your air ducts when you begin spring cleaning.Your air ducts are the perfect place or allergens and contaminants to get trapped and settle inside your home. When you run your system, the allergens are agitated and pushed out of the ducts to circulate throughout your home. Prevent dirty ducts by having your HVAC technician clean them in the spring.
Try An Air Purifier
When placed in the bedroom, den or other commonly used areas of the house, an air purifier is a great way to add another level of protection in your home. Ionic purifiers can capture irritants that trigger asthma and other allergic reactions, and are a great investment to use throughout the year.
