There's Nothing More Irritating Than Irritants In Your Home. Learn How to Prevent Them.

February 25, 2020 | Blog

When pollutants are allowed to float around your home, they can cause respiratory issues and even worse ailments. It’s important to always have great indoor air quality, so let’s take a look at a few simple tricks that will allow you to prevent irritants from becoming a big problem.

Schedule Regular Tuneups

If your HVAC system suffers problems, then it won’t properly do its part to keep contaminants out of your air. Scheduling regular tuneups by a professional technician will help keep it running at maximum efficiency and effectiveness.

Clean or Replace the Filter 

It doesn’t take long before your system’s air filter gets clogged by dirt and debris, which means it can no longer stop allergens from entering the air. To prevent this problem, make sure you check the filter each month and then either clean or replace it as necessary.

Switch to a HEPA-Style Air Filter

If you’re searching for a simple way to improve your HVAC system’s ability to fight against allergens, then switching to a HEPA-style air filter will definitely do the trick. When you head out to the store to pick one up, look for one that has a MERV rating of 10. This will provide you with optimal results.

Hire a Technician to Clean Your Ducts

Since air ducts are basically the veins of your home, they can easily distribute dust and other allergens throughout the entire household, causing irritation and respiratory issues in their wake. Hiring a qualified technician to conduct a thorough cleaning will help put a stop to this.

Pick Up an Air Purifier

An air purifier will be an extra expenditure, but it will also be highly effective in reducing the number of pollutants that can cause irritation and other problems. The best air purifiers, in fact, will remove more than 99% of allergens.
