Are you sneezing, dealing with a runny nose, and experiencing itchy eyes? Springtime has sprung in the Florida Keys and brought seasonal allergies with it. Florida experiences some of the most beautiful weather during this time of year – along with pollen and other particles in the air, which could affect your air conditioner and your allergies in ways you might not expect. Our dedicated team at All Brands Corp. AC Inc. is here to share a few ways to reduce allergies with your air conditioner.
The Role of Air Conditioners and Allergies
During this time of year, the Sunshine State faces even higher levels of pollen than usual. If you can’t breathe well outside due to seasonal allergies, then you must rely heavily on a properly maintained air conditioner. However, if you notice that you are experiencing heightened allergies indoors, it could have something to do with your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, also known as HVAC. Maintaining your HVAC system is crucial to remove dust, debris, and filter out the air. When you choose the correct filter, you are improving your indoor air quality by filtering out foreign objects that can trigger your allergies like pet dander or dust mites. When you improve your indoor air quality, you are reducing humidity levels. High levels of indoor humidity can cause mildew and mold to sprout, which can lead to even more allergens.
How to Reduce Allergies With Your Air Conditioner
- Regularly clean and maintain your air conditioner
- Consistently change your air filters
- Don’t skimp out on air filters, choose a good one to fight against allergens
- Tidy your home to reduce levels of dust
- Don’t run your air conditioner when windows are open
- Inspect your HVAC for leaks, corrosion and mold
- Keep humidity levels low
- Add an air purifier for even cleaner air
- Consider replacing your system if it is over 10 years old
