3 Ways Your Maintained HVAC Unit Can Reduce Your Spring Allergies

Girl with allergies sneezes in house because HVAC needs maintenance and filter replacement.

If you have spring allergies but you don’t have an HVAC maintenance plan, it’s time to invest in one. The two might not seem related, but well-maintained heating and cooling systems can help reduce your allergy symptoms in many ways. Here are three of them.

#1: Improving Indoor Air Quality

Your indoor air quality plays a significant role in how you feel, your health, and whether your allergies act up. The common allergens that affect most people and that are often abundant in the average home include pollen, dander, dust, dust mites, pet hair, mold, and household cleaning chemicals. The air filters in your HVAC equipment work to remove those contaminants from your air. Changing the air filter is just one step on the maintenance checklist that is vital to controlling your allergy symptoms.

#2: Controlling Humidity

If the humidity in your home is too high, it could lead to mold and mildew growth that can be a significant factor in your health and your response to allergens. If the humidity is too low, it often causes dust, dust mites, dander, pollen, and other irritants to become airborne, making your symptoms worse. Regular maintenance helps ensure your system is controlling humidity as it should.

#3: Optimized Operation

A dirty and poorly functioning heating and cooling system won’t be able to keep you comfortable consistently and won’t be able to protect you from poor air quality. Regular maintenance helps ensure your HVAC unit works at peak performance.
