If you or your household have respiratory sensitivities, controlling the air quality in your home can be crucial during allergen seasons.
North Carolina is a major allergen state and over the last three decades, the pollen season has lengthened by nearly a full month. With pollen season getting worse each year, having an up-to-date and efficient HVAC system is necessary for relieving your household’s allergy symptoms.
Allergies are mainly caused by pollen, pet dander, mold, and dust mites. While properly functioning HVAC systems may relieve allergies, systems that aren’t properly installed or maintained can actually make allergies worse by filtering air pollutants into your home.
A vital part of maintaining good air quality in your household is replacing the air filters in your HVAC system. As pollen and allergens get filtered through the intake vents, the airborne debris can collect and sit on the filters. Replacing your air filters regularly will allow for a higher percentage of air pollutants to be filtered more effecively. Not only will the air quality in your home improve, but new air filters will boost the efficiency of your HVAC system. This can lead to lower energy bills and ultimately save you money.
Incorporating smart technology into HVAC systems offers numerous benefits.
Having an efficient and properly maintained AC system in your home can remove gallons of water from your air every day, and the best way to combat humidity in your home is to turn up the AC!
