When most people think of seasonal allergies, they think of springtime. Unfortunately, millions of Canadians also suffer from allergies in the summer. Ragweed, pollen, and grass are all outdoor allergens that can affect you both outside and in the house, which is why it’s important to do everything you can to keep your home a space free of allergens. Here are some really simple ways you can diminish your summer allergies this year.
Change Your Air Filter Regularly
Whether you use central or ductless air conditioning, your system has an air filter that catches dust, hair, dirt, fur, and other allergens so they don’t end up in the air you breathe. The most effective air filter is a clean air filter, so in order to diminish summer allergies, we recommend that you change your air filter at least once every 90 days and check periodically to see if it needs to be changed sooner.
Invest In A Purification System
A great investment for those of us with summer allergies is an air purification system that works alongside your air conditioner and furnace to eradicate tiny particles of allergens, viruses, and other harmful airborne bacteria that may be too small to be caught by your furnace filter. Air purification systems use UV lights that are harmless to humans to destroy harmful allergens in the air, helping to alleviate your allergies all year long.
Keep Indoor And Outdoor Air Registers Free Of Debris
Both your air conditioner’s outdoor and indoor units are susceptible to becoming clogged with debris that may worsen your summer allergies. Outside, your air conditioner could become clogged with leaves, grass, and other plants, and inside, your air registers could become clogged with dust and fur. A great way to ensure your allergies don’t become out of hand is to take the time once in a while to ensure that both your indoor and outdoor units are clean and free of any debris.
Call For Annual Preventative Maintenance
The best way to ensure that your HVAC system is working for you, rather than against you when it comes to summer allergies is to schedule preventive maintenance once every year. During these maintenance appointments, expert HVAC technicians have the chance to clean and inspect your HVAC system to ensure that it’s running cleanly and efficiently, providing you with cool, clean air all summer long.
