Summer brings many opportunities for fun to the Coastal Bend, but for some people, it also brings summer allergies. An improperly maintained HVAC system can actually make your allergies worse by bringing allergens indoors. Luckily, there are steps you can take to keep summer allergies from attacking you inside your house.
1. Keep your filters clean. A simple step you can perform yourself is changing or cleaning your HVAC filters regularly. Most experts recommend changing or cleaning filters a minimum of every three months. When summer allergies are at their worst, you may find that changing or cleaning your filters every month helps prevent allergy symptoms.
2. Schedule annual maintenance. Allergens can get into more parts of your cooling and heating system than just your filters. When you schedule annual maintenance for your system, the HVAC technician will clean your A/C coils and blower components. This helps prevent dust and pollen from entering your home. As a bonus, periodic maintenance will help extend the life of your equipment by reducing wear and tear from dirty components and catching minor problems before they become major. For busy customers who are always on the go, CCAC, Inc. in Corpus Christi offers customers Peak Efficiency Service Agreements that take the hassle out of scheduling periodic maintenance. We’ll actually call you to set up a time for your service appointment.
3. Seal your ducts. Your HVAC system’s ductwork is usually out of sight in the attic or in the walls. Ductwork can develop tears and leaks that you may not even be aware of. Each of those openings in the ducts may create a situation that causes dust and pollen that lead to summer allergies to be brought into your home. Properly sealed ductwork reduces dust and other allergens in your home. The HVAC technicians at CCAC, Inc. know how to repair and seal even the most hard-to-get-at ductwork, leaving you with cleaner air and a more efficient heating and cooling system.
