As we welcome back summer to Girard we also have to welcome back something a lot less pleasant: allergies. While your home is intended to be an escape from the various discomforts of nature, allergies are often an uncomfortable exception. However, routine air conditioner service can help ease those annoyances and make a noticeable improvement in your comfort.
While most spring and summer allergies are due to the activities of trees, flowers, and grasses, almost all indoor allergies are mostly due to conditions already in your home. A troubling array of dust can collect in your home’s air ducts which then get sent throughout your home every time your air conditioner runs. Beyond dust knocked loose from the walls of your duct work, your air conditioner, air handler or furnace blower motor can also contain microbes, pet dander, dead insect matter, and sometimes.
In fact, Indoor air pollution levels can be two to five times higher than outdoors. 1
If your air conditioning system is adding contaminants to your air, your kids will probably be the ones to suffer first2. That’s because their lungs are less developed and will become irritated quicker in the presence of contaminated air.
The first thing to think about if you think your air conditioner may be contributing to your allergies is upgrading your air filter to one with more protection against allergens. High efficiency air filters have a MERV rating greater than 14. Service Experts can provide a free estimate and install a high-efficiency filter system for you.
