Combating Allergies with HVAC Maintenance

Springtime is just around the corner, and for many that means it’s only a matter of time before dust, pollen, and other allergens fill the air. While there’s little that can be done about the outdoor air quality, the air inside your home is another story. Proper HVAC maintenance can help ensure that the air quality inside your home is healthy, clean, and optimized to help prevent you and your family from being taken down by springtime allergies.

HVAC Systems and Allergens

Regular cleaning of your HVAC system can have a major effect on your allergy systems. In addition to the typical allergens that people think of in the spring months – such as pollen – HVAC systems can be collection grounds for numerous other allergens, including everything from dust mites to pet dander. As a matter of fact, your indoor air quality can contain as many as five times the amount of allergens as would typically be found outdoors.

Allergy symptoms are only made worse when homeowners turn on their HVAC systems for the first time as the months begin to warm up, as the air conditioning blows collected allergens straight into your home, where you and your loved ones can breathe them in and experience an allergic reaction.

Dealing with these problems begins with doing your own part to improve the quality of air within your home. Using high efficiency filters in your home and replacing or cleaning them on a regular basis is your first step towards ensuring that you are protected from potentially harmful allergens within your home.

Maintaining Your Air Quality

The filter is the first and most obvious source of dust and allergen buildup when it comes to your HVAC system, but do take into account that dust and allergens can build up throughout your system. While you can clean spots such as the exposed parts of your air conditioner and heating system, other parts of the system will require professional cleaning services.

Some of these issues may have already been causing you problems over the preceding months. If you noticed issues such as a burning aroma or a lack of efficiency in your HVAC system over the winter months, it is very likely that you are experiencing dust buildup that should be taken care of right away – not only for your own health, but for the health of your HVAC system.

However, also remember that because your air conditioning system has not been used over the winter, it has had time to accumulate heavy amounts of dust and allergens. It is better to be proactive than to wait and see whether or not these problems arise.

Be proactive at the beginning of the spring season and you can ensure better air quality within your home throughout the year. Not only that, but having Consumers Energy Management perform the cleaning of your HVAC system now will also ensure that your system is running at maximum efficiency, which will prevent potential damage and lead to energy savings throughout the warmer months.
