How Can Your AC System Lessen Allergy Symptoms?
Allergy symptoms can interfere with your indoor comfort and even your sleep. Contaminants circulating in your indoor air trigger allergy symptoms. Discover how to use your AC system in Nokomis, FL, to combat allergens.
Change Your Air Filter Regularly
An air filter is the AC system’s component responsible for keeping your indoor air clean. Air that enters your air conditioner for cooling must first pass through the filter. The filter traps many of the pollutants in this air so the air recirculating in your house after cooling has fewer pollutants.
As the air filter traps more pollutants, they accumulate on and clog it. Consequently, the filter cannot catch more pollutants efficiently.
Also, the blocked filter doesn’t allow air to pass through easily. For this reason, your AC system struggles to draw in air for cooling. This results in accelerated wear and tear.
Change your air filter regularly to improve its ability to capture pollutants. Remember to check minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) ratings when ordering a new air filter. The higher the rating, the greater the efficiency.
Schedule Expert AC Maintenance
Your AC system eliminates excessive humidity from your indoor air during summer. The evaporator coil is the part of the AC system that absorbs excess moisture. The moisture then flows into the drain pan and out of the house.
Dirt may accumulate on the evaporator coil, inhibiting its ability to absorb moisture. Dirt and debris may also clog the condensate line, reducing its ability to drain water.
Stagnant water promotes the growth of biological contaminants that worsen indoor air quality. Schedule regular AC maintenance services to unclog and clean all the parts.
Don’t Forget Duct Cleaning Services
Your ductwork may develop tiny openings that allow dirt and debris to enter. These pollutants then enter your indoor air and trigger allergy symptoms. Duct cleaning services help to eliminate pollutants in the ductwork.
