Can my HVAC system really lesson the effects of my allergies?


There are nearly as many myths floating around regarding the hazards of HVAC systems on allergy sufferers, as there are allergens in the air. We are paying far more attention to indoor air quality than ever before, so now is as good a time as any to dispel the myths associated with the HVAC in your home and how it affects your allergies. The fact remains that your properly maintained HVAC system can help lessen the effects the "sneezing season" has on your allergies.

Prevent allergens from cycling in your home by doing the following:

  • Use high quality filters with a MERV 8 rating as a first line of defense in the protection of your indoor air quality.
  • Check for mold in the drains, ducts, and drip pans every few weeks to get ahead of a molds spore infestation that can lead to serious health considerations.
  • Clean the area around the outside of your unit of dust and debris before it can be sucked into the unit.
  • Regularly scheduled HVAC maintenance will ensure that your A/C unit is operating as efficiently as possible.

You and your family can breathe easy knowing that your HVAC system helps lessen the effects of allergens on overloaded nasal passages. For more information on indoor allergens, contact Morelli Heating and Air Conditioning today!
