Whether it’s the time of year or the pet hair floating around your home, allergens throughout the air can cause allergy flair-ups to everyone living in your home. If you’re striving for a cleaner home that’s healthy and free of allergens and pollutants, you’ve come to the right place! Our team of HVAC technicians at Beach Air HVAC in Myrtle Beach has come up with the top four ways to reduce allergens in your home.
There are many different types of filters that you can choose from and that’s where it makes all the difference. We suggest using HEPA filters, or high-efficiency particulate air filters because they are effective at blocking up to 99% of contaminants in the air. If home allergens are your biggest concern, then investing in a good air filter will help.
If you’re a pet owner or attract a lot of dust into your home then changing out your air filter regularly. While it’s recommended to change your air filter every one to three months, keeping an eye on it and changing it sooner will also help reduce allergens.
Along with keeping your filter clean and regularly changed, cleaning air ducts and ceiling fans will stop the allergens that are present from circulating throughout the air. Keeping surfaces around your home clean will also help keep the air clean.
Many times if the humidity in your home is over 40%, that can cause mold and mildew to start growing which can lead to worsening allergy symptoms. If your home has too little moisture, allergens can stay airborne. To ensure your HVAC system is doing its job, it’s essential to keep up with regular preventative maintenance.
Overall, these are just some of the main ways you can help reduce allergens throughout your home. If have any questions or want to learn more about the services we provide to homeowners throughout the Grand Strand, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
