Proper HVAC Care and Your Allergies
With pollen polluting the air in the Midwest, it’s common to hear those around you complain about their allergy symptoms. However, did you know that your symptoms could be stemming from more than just the outdoors? Your heating and air conditioning filters could be playing a big role in how your allergies are making you feel.
Since we spend so much time indoors, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to know that dirty filters can make your allergies symptoms worse. Indoor air is actually four to five times more polluted than the air outside. To make things worse, dirty filters and ductwork can hold onto pollen, dust mites, animal dander, and mold, all of which can trigger allergy attacks.
Not only can your HVAC system inside of your home hold onto these allergens, but they can also spread them throughout your entire house. It’s important that you change your filters about once every two months. Mr. Duct can give you a variety of filter options to best suit your home and allergies.
If you suspect that mold may be growing in your air conditioning system, Mr.Duct can help with that as well. Our air conditioning service professionals can help to get your vents cleaned or replaced to give your allergy symptoms some relief.
