April showers surely bring May flowers, but they can also bring mold and other allergens into your home. If mold isn’t bad enough, there’s also an influx of pollen – you know, that yellow stuff that covers your home and cars almost like snow, but without the benefits? For most allergy sufferers, decongestants can be a viable option to endure, but there are also ways your HVAC system can help you feel better during the dreaded pollen season!

INDOOR AIR QUALITY

If you suffer from spring or even fall allergies, investing in an indoor air quality system can help you breathe easier during peak months. An indoor air quality system can range from air filtration to air purification to whole-house dehumidifiers and air leak sealing. This type of system, along with UV lights installed at your evaporator coil, can combat mold and mildew growth in your home. Not only can these things help you live more comfortably in your home, but they can also save you money by being more energy-efficient.

And to keep all these pesky particles out of your home, our team offers another option called the G.R.E.E.N program – Greater Residential Energy Efficiency through New technologies. This process involves our skilled technicians inspecting ductwork, air sealing, insulation, radiant barriers, water heating, and the water heating and cooling system. Once the inspection is complete, you’ll receive a report with our recommendations for a healthier home environment.

HVAC MAINTENANCE TIPS

HVAC maintenance is important to keep your unit and home operating safely and efficiently. Here are three ways you can improve allergens inside your home:

Clean Your HVAC:

Hose off your outdoor HVAC unit to rid it of any dirt, debris, and pollen.

Clean Your Home:

Spring clean your home on the inside and clean up debris on the outside. Believe it or not, these small efforts can really help improve allergy symptoms.

Clean Your Ducts:

If you’ve found dust and dirt on your HVAC system and inside your home, it’s very likely it’s also in your duct system as well. Contact our team here at Thermacon, and we’ll take care of this task to ensure better indoor air quality.

Check Your HVAC Filters:

Make sure to check your HVAC filters and make sure you’re replacing them regularly for the best results.
