Are you experiencing a stuffy or irritable nose lately? Are you having breathing difficulties? There are many allergens that can cause health problems. You could have serious health problems if they aren’t removed from the air. Can your heating and cooling system prevent the spread of allergens? The short answer to this question is yes. To prevent the spread of allergens, however, it is important to maintain your system on a regular basis.
Here are the steps to ensure that your heating and cooling systems eliminate allergens from the air.
Heating and Cooling Tips
Regular vacuuming and dusting are important
A great way to get rid of allergens is to clean your home. Make sure to vacuum your home regularly. If you have children or pets, you should vacuum your home more often. Dead skin and fur from pets can be left on surfaces. For some, allergies can be caused by the dirt they produce. Regular cleaning is recommended for pets living in homes.
Regularly wash soft surfaces
Make sure you clean all bedding and blankets that come in contact with your pets. Even if your pets are not at home, there could still be contaminants in these areas that can cause irritation.
Keep the windows shut
If you suffer from allergies, it is important to keep your windows shut. Pollen could still be present in your home. This pollen can enter your home through windows and cause allergic reactions. The heating and cooling in North Myrtle Beach SC systems move air through filters. However, in some cases, the filters may not be effective in cleaning dirt out of the air, such as when they haven’t been changed in a while.
Use an air purifier
An air purifier is another option. Call your HVAC contractor to have your air purifier connected to your existing ductwork. Before purchasing an air purifier, make sure you consult your HVAC technician. They will be able to advise you on the right type of purifier for your house.
Regularly replace your air filters
You should also change or clean your air filters regularly. You must do this regularly to ensure efficient airflow throughout your home. To ensure that the airflow through your home is efficient, you must clean the registers and vents. North Myrtle Beach Heating & Air can help with any type of HVAC maintenance or repair.
