Watch the Humidity

Allergens love a humid environment. Excess moisture in your home will allow allergens (and bacteria!) to thrive. Ideal humidity levels for indoor environments indoor humidity levels range from 40 to 50 percent. Any wetter, and you are simply providing a breeding ground for mold, dust mites, and creepy crawlies. The good news is that your HVAC system is one of the most effective ways to reduce excess humidity in your home.

Clean Your Filters

In addition to heating and cooling your house throughout the year, your HVAC system helps to filter your house’s air of pollen, dust, pet dander and other allergens. The best thing you can do to help your HVAC system do its job is regularly clean and replace your HVAC’s filters. You should change or clean your air filter at least once every 6 months to ensure that it’s working properly

The more often you change your air filter, the less pollutants will be coming through it, and the less you will suffer from your fall allergies. There are many options for air filters that are actually designed to catch allergens and improve the air quality in your home.

Clean Your Ducts

Sometimes, you need to go right to the source. Your air ducts are responsible for distributing heated and cooled air throughout the house. Their cleanliness is directly related to the quality of air that comes out of them and this can be very problematic for people who suffer from fall allergies. Air ducts maintenance can require specialized equipment, so be sure call a professional to lend a hand.
