Spring Allergies are Almost Here

Spring brings flowers, pollen and allergens affecting your health on a daily basis. Your home is a refuge against allergens so you can relax without sneezing, coughing or suffering from itchy, watery eyes. What do you do when your indoor air quality is low and you can’t escape constant allergy issues?

You can take preventative measures to reduce the allergens in your home. Consider the benefits of installing a media air cleaner in your home, schedule routine HVAC maintenance and have your air ducts cleaned before your allergies flare up. You will experience reduced allergy symptoms and your cooling system will perform more efficiently as the temperatures start to rise.

Have Your Unit Cleaned

Allergens are at their worst when the weather starts to warm. Schedule maintenance on your cooling system to eliminate any dirt, dust or debris accumulated over the winter. A clean system operates more efficiently, saves you money in the long run and pumps clean air throughout your home. After a long, cold winter, your HVAC system can have dirt on the components. The dirt from the inside of your equipment will get stirred up and travel into your home via the air ducts.

Mills Heating & Air offers preventative maintenance twice a year. Once in the fall and again in the spring. Contact us to discuss the perks of our preventative maintenance program and experience cooler temperatures in your home.

Media Air Cleaners

When you install a media air cleaner in your home, you can rest easy knowing every inch of your home has healthy air and allergens are controlled. It works directly with your cooling system and traps a variety of particles affecting your health. Whether you install a media air cleaner filter-based unit or a duct-based unit, your indoor air quality will greatly improve in your home.

A high-efficiency media air cleaner can capture up to 99% of particulates in the air and lasts longer than the average air filter. They keep your heating and cooling system cleaner, which keeps your system operating more efficiently between maintenance calls. Media air cleaners can work with any forced-air system and maintain high airflow year-round.

Other Ways to Reduce Allergens in Your Home

If you want more measures to reduce allergens in your home, consider different indoor air quality products, such as:

  • Whole-home humidifiers installed with your current heating and cooling system by an HVAC technician. Dry air is common during the winter months and a humidifier will add moisture to your indoor air to reduce allergies, asthma, respiratory infections, colds, viruses and bacteria.
  • Whole-home dehumidifiers perform the opposite of a humidifier. A whole-home dehumidifier pulls moisture out of your indoor air during the summer months, providing ideal humidity levels for your home and reducing mold and mildew. It also works in tandem with your current HVAC system and requires installation by a licensed professional.
  • Ultraviolet lights installed in your ductwork and air handler. The ultraviolet bulbs kill bacteria and mold before it can be circulated through the air in your home. UV lights are great for preventing mold growth and condensation on your evaporator coils.
