HVAC Service Fights Fall Allergens

By: Homesense  |  September 17, 2018

There’s so much to love about fall – the colorful leaves, the pumpkin spice everything and how HVAC service fights our fall allergens. Truthfully, if you’re one of the many Indianapolis residents living with allergies, asthma, COPD or other respiratory conditions, HVAC service can improve your indoor air quality. How does regular heating and air maintenance help? Let’s review.

HVAC Service Cleans Your Heating and Air System

When you call a trusted local provider like Homesense to perform HVAC service, a licensed and industry-certified professional visits your home. He is prepared to service any system because of Homesense investment in ongoing training.

Once the technician thoroughly inspects your HVAC equipment, he or she cleans any dirt, dust or debris from the components. He tests all relevant parts. It’s important to remove dirt and other contaminants from your HVAC system because it hinders air flow. It also finds its way into the mechanical components, shortening their lifespan.

Good air flow is key to comfortable and efficient heating and cooling. Your system performs many duties, depending on the need, such as heat or moisture extraction from the air. If there is dust or debris in the ductwork and components, the system has to push it from room to room too.

Your air filter is the first line of defense for dust, pet dander, pollen and other pollutants. These can clog quickly, depending on household and environment factors. For example, at Homesense, we advise homeowners to check the air filter monthly.

Most people find filters last two to three months. Your system may use a disposable or permanent one. If you have multiple pets or live with allergies, you’ll need to change or clean your filter every one to two months.

When the filter is clogged, it requires more effort from the heating and cooling equipment to function. This strain can, over time, shorten the lifespan of your heating and air system.

HVAC Service Improves Indoor Air Quality

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Indianapolis has improved its standing in the organization’s list of The 100 Most Challenging Places to Live with Allergies. While that’s good news, the Indianapolis area still has many airborne allergens and air pollution. Plus, 90 percent of our lives are spent indoors and indoor air is 3-5 times more polluted than outdoor air.

This fall, Indianapolis fell 22 places down the list from 2016, based on categories such as pollen score, medicine use per patient and board-certified allergists per patient. When you have a professional clean your heating and cooling system during routine HVAC service, he or she removes many of the contaminants in your system.

This HVAC service means fewer pollutants circulate throughout your home. If you or a family member live with allergies, asthma or another respiratory or immune-compromised condition, consider whole-home filtration.

Some products significantly decrease the volume of airborne pollutants, such as mold spores, dust mites, bacteria, viruses and other respiratory-triggers.

At Homesense for example, we offer several indoor air quality products, such as air purifiers, humidifiers and dehumidifiers and duct cleaning. In fact, if you join our HVAC service club, you’ll receive a discount on indoor air quality equipment.
