Living in Northwest Indiana, the seasons change quickly and that change starts to affect our immune systems. From stuffy to runny noses, we become victim to “allergies,” colds, and all of the annoying aches and pains that come with it. While it may not be completely avoidable, there are some things you could do in regards to your heating and air conditioning that might make the seasonal change a little easier on your breathing.
Invest in a high-quality air filter. Believe us, this is worth it! A higher quality filter means that it will collect more dust and pollen from the air which will bode well with you in the long run even with the extra money spent.
Quickly and easily, clean the vents in your home. Getting rid of the dust that settles helps to minimalize the amount of dust floating in the air. Along with this, you can get your outdoor unit cleaned and unplugged by a professional which will help eliminate the pollens in the air.
Our final tip is to use your HVAC unit often, even when it may seem better to turn it off and open your windows. This goes for fans as well, while fans stir up the dust and pet dander, an AC unit removes it. This also means that you should get your HVAC unit serviced regularly.
Please do not hesitate to call if this is something we can help you with or with any other question you might have with your HVAC!
