How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Allergies

While many people associate allergy symptoms with pollen, pollution and other irritants in the air outside your home, your indoor air quality can have a big impact on your symptoms. According to the EPA, “In the last several years, a increasing body of scientific evidence has specified that the air within homes and other buildings can be more dangerously polluted than the outdoor air in even the biggest and most industrialized cities. Other research shows that people fill approximately 90 percent of their time inside. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be larger due to more interaction with air pollution indoors than outdoors.”

Our West Palm Beach homes are full of outdoor allergens like pollen that find their way indoors, and by irritants like pet dander, dust mites, mold spores, chemicals from everyday household products and more. So, what can you do about it? The key is already in your home! It’s your HVAC system.

You should understand that your HVAC can be your best friend or your foe when it comes to controlling your allergies. A dirty system can collect and circulate allergens all over your home, so the solution is to keep your system operating well. Primarily, you have to keep your air filters clean. Place a reminder or set it on your calendar to inspect them monthly and exchange them out when you see that they’re becoming dirty. They’ll usually need to be replaced every two or three months, but this can vary greatly from household to house. You can buy filters that span from the most straightforward level of filtering to hospital-grade HEPA filters. The specialists at Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc can help you establish which kind of filter will keep your home nourishing and keep your HVAC functioning properly.

It’s also crucial to have your system regularly maintained by a professional to keep your interior air quality where it should be. As well as examining that all-important filter, your service specialist will clean the inner workings of your system and guarantee that everything is running as it should. You can also ask your professional if a duct cleaning would be helpful.

When it comes to your internal air quality, you can trust the experts at Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc to take good care of you. Besides helping you keep your HVAC system maintained, we can help you make sure you have the tools you need to combat poor indoor air quality and allergens—like humidifiers and whole home air purifiers.
