How Can Your Air Conditioning System Affect Your Allergies

Posted on July 14th, 2016 by Jupiter Tequesta

ac repair jupiter fl | ac repair tequesta fl | Jupiter-Tequesta PlumbingOn hot summer days, we keep our windows and doors shut tight. Although this is a great way to keep our homes cool and our energy bills low, it also means that we are breathing in indoor allergens that can leave us with itchy, watery eyes and a stuffy nose. So what can you do to prevent allergy symptoms at home?  Here are a few tips that will help keep you healthy all summer long.

How to Prevent Summer Allergies:

Change Your Air Filters - Your HVAC air filter is designed to catch dirt, dust, and other particles as the air moves through your vents and ducts. Be sure to swap out your air filters for new ones when they become dirty and clogged. You don’t want those allergy triggers in your home — and a dirty filter will also keep air from moving efficiently throughout your home.

Schedule Regular HVAC Maintenance - It’s important to have your air conditioning system tuned-up each year. This will help prevent future problems with your system and will catch any current problems before they start to affect your home’s air quality.

Install a Dehumidifier - Humid days in Jupiter. FL can make the weather feel even warmer than it really is.  Don’t turn down the thermostat — instead, opt for a dehumidifier. This will help remove the humidity in your home, leaving you with a lower energy bill and a more comfortable home. A dehumidifier also helps discourage the growth of mold and mildew (which thrive in humid environments).
