Did you know your HVAC system can play a role in reducing spring allergies? As many residents in Cincinnati know, springtime allergies are incredibly prevalent. If you’re looking for ways to reduce spring allergies, contacting your local HVAC company, like River View Heating & Cooling, is a great place to start. We take steps to make sure your HVAC system and other products in your home can help with reducing spring allergies.

Use Air Purifiers and a Humidifier or Dehumidifier

It’s crucial to breathe quality air when you’re in your home. Using an air purifier and a dehumidifier or a humidifier (depending on humidity levels in your home) can help improve indoor air quality. With an air purifier, it works to trap and remove particles from the air that can trigger allergies. Some of these particles include:

  • Dust and dust mites
  • Pet dander
  • Mold

Daikin Comfort offers air purifiers that we can install in your home.

In addition to using an air purifier, you can also benefit from a humidifier or dehumidifier. If your home is too dry, a humidifier will help introduce moisture back into your living areas. This can help make sure your allergies don’t get too out of hand. On the other hand, if your home has too much moisture, it can lead to mold growth, a common allergen. A dehumidifier will help maintain normal levels of humidity in your home.

Replace Air Filters

Replacing your air filters on a regular basis can help reduce your allergy symptoms. It’s recommended that you replace your air filters every three to six months. So, if you haven’t replaced your air filters in a while, now is the time to replace them. When it comes to maintaining your HVAC system, replacing air filters are one of the ways you can do it yourself.

Remove Dust from Vents

Just like you can replace your own air filters, you can also remove a build up of dust in your air vents on your own. This will prevent dust from moving to other areas of your home. In order to remove dust, get a damp cloth and wipe up any dust you have present. The damp cloth works best because it reduces the chance of dust spreading to other surfaces.

Update Your System

HVAC systems only last about 15 to 25 years. If your system is starting to age, you’ll want to start thinking about replacing it. At River View Heating & Cooling, we exclusively install Daikin Comfort systems. We specialize in ductless mini splits, which allows you to control the temperature in multiple areas of your home similar to how it’s done overseas.
