How Can My HVAC Help With My Allergies?

Allergy Season

As we move into the spring season, we’re met with blooming flowers, warmer temperatures, and, unfortunately, allergies. With pollen, dust, and other allergens in the air, breathing easily can be difficult, leading to worsening allergies. The good news is that your HVAC system can help alleviate your allergy symptoms, and here's how.

1. Filter the Air

One of the primary functions of your HVAC system is to filter the air in your home, removing dust, dirt, and other allergens. By keeping your air filters clean and changing them regularly, your HVAC system can prevent allergens from circulating through your home. Look for air filters with a higher MERV rating, which can trap smaller particles.

2. Regulate Humidity

Another way your HVAC system can help with allergies is by regulating the humidity levels in your home. Too much or too little humidity can cause discomfort, worsen allergies, and negatively impact your health. Consider investing in a humidifier or dehumidifier to add or remove moisture in the air.

3. Prevent Mold Growth

Mold can grow in damp environments, such as a bathroom or basement, and can trigger severe allergies in sensitive individuals. Your HVAC system can help prevent mold growth by removing excess moisture and keeping the air flowing. Regularly maintaining your system will help prevent build-ups of any moisture or condensation.

4. Utilize UV Lights

Another way to combat allergens is by installing UV lights in your HVAC system. UV lights eliminate bacteria and viruses, which can disable mold and other allergens, corals, bacteria, and viruses. The UV rays will target the DNA of any allergens in your air filter or airflow.

5. Get Regular Maintenance

Finally, one of the easiest ways to ensure your HVAC system is working efficiently is by getting routine maintenance. Regular cleaning and inspections of your HVAC system will ensure that it’s running correctly and effectively and that there are no lingering allergens in the air. An HVAC specialist will be able to clean the system to eliminate any allergens and relieve any allergies.
