Spring allergy season has arrived in Fayetteville, North Carolina, but that doesn’t mean you have to sniffle and sneeze until the season passes. Routine HVAC maintenance can go a long way toward keeping your home’s air clean and allergen-free. From changing the air filter to scheduling HVAC maintenance, find out how to spring into clean air this allergy season.
Change the Air Filter
One of the most important things you can do to ensure clean air is to change the HVAC filter regularly. After all, the air filter is responsible for removing dust mites, pet danger, and even pollen from your home’s air supply. If any of these allergens make you sneeze, you’ll want to replace the old filter with a fresh one on the first of every month throughout spring and summer.
Sticking to this routine will help maintain clean air during allergy season. Once the season passes and you aren’t relying on your air conditioner for around-the-clock comfort, you can replace the HVAC filter every 60 to 90 days.
Clean the Registers
Another easy yet effective way to clear the air is to clean the registers around your home. Registers can accumulate an alarming amount of dust, and because all of the air that your HVAC system generates moves through them, they can impact your indoor air quality in a big way. Dust or vacuum around each register once a week. Every month, remove the register and vacuum around the edge of the vent for even more dust removal.
Schedule Professional HVAC Maintenance
While routine cleaning and maintenance help clear the air, you’ll need a professional HVAC tuneup to take your indoor air quality to the next level.
