Spring is upon us, which means blooming flowers, greener grass and a blanket of pollen all through town. If you’re one of the many residents in Chester, Montgomery and Delaware counties who suffer from allergies, this may be a bittersweet season for you. That’s where caring for your HVAC unit comes in. Here are MoreVent’s top maintenance tips to reduce allergy symptoms.
Switch to high-quality air filters
Air filters act as the first line of defense against contaminants in your home. They trap pollen, dust, mold spores, dander and more. When looking at filters, make sure to check the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. The higher the rating, the more suitable it will be for family members who suffer from allergies. Regardless of how efficient the rating is, a neglected air filter will not meet your needs. Change your air filters every few months or more if necessary.
Keep units clean
Keeping your outdoor unit clean is just as important as making sure your indoor unit is clutter-free. Allergens have the tendency to cling to the outdoor unit’s surface. Remove any dust, debris or dirt around your unit. This ensures that what is being brought into your home is purely air.
Dust your vents
Dust mites are a top indoor allergen; reducing dust means reducing allergy symptoms. Something as simple as dusting your vents can make all the difference in your loved ones’ comfort. When cleaning, dampen a cloth to prevent dust particles from kicking back into the air.
Schedule annual cleaning
The key to keeping your air fresh and allergen-free is scheduling regular maintenance.
