Allergic reactions from pesky pollen are one thing, but did you know that it can also affect your air conditioner? Sneaky particles drift in through cracks and crevices as well as the outdoor condenser unit, causing a buildup of debris inside. Make sure to keep these openings sealed for optimal HVAC operation!
Keeping your indoor air quality pristine and your allergies at bay can be a challenge, especially when pollen is running rampant. Try out the suggestions below to maintain clean air in your home without letting any pesky pollutants come inside!
Close your windows
Living with allergies can present many unwanted challenges. Though mild weather might invite us to open our windows and bring in the fresh air, new research shows that leaving your windows open could let harmful particulates and microbes inside – polluting the very air you’re trying to breathe. Investing in a clean-air filter for indoors offers protection from these allergens so you can finally get some relief!
Keep the surroundings of the outdoor HVAC unit clean
Make sure to keep your HVAC in North Myrtle Beach free of pollen and other potential pollutants by removing any vegetation growing nearby. An easy, effective way to accomplish this is using gravel or paver bricks which will ensure nothing can take root near the outdoor condenser unit.
Change air filters
Improve indoor air quality by regularly changing your heating and air conditioning system filters! Unfiltered pollen, dust, pet hair, and other debris is continuously pulled through the filter up to six times each hour. When left unchanged for too long these contaminants can accumulate in your HVAC system causing it to fail prematurely – resulting in costly repairs down the road.
Clean the ducts
Keep the air in your home clean and safe by getting duct cleaning. Pollen spores, mold, viruses, and other contaminants can settle into the ductwork of your HVAC system – making these invisible pollutants present even with an air filter’s protection. A professional duct maintenance service ensures that all deposits are cleared away so you can breathe peacefully again!
Clean the air conditioner
Pollen can be an unwelcome nuisance, but the good news is that it won’t clog your outdoor unit. If you see some settling on its surface though, we recommend washing it off with a garden hose.
