When it comes to your heating and air conditioning system, temperature control is only one aspect of the benefits. Discover how a well-maintained HVAC can help with your fall allergies too.

Heating and air conditioning services should extend beyond keeping your home at the right temperature. The right professional HVAC team will provide the system maintenance, tune-ups, and suggestions necessary to enhance comfort and health for you and your family members through improved indoor air quality. If you find yourself sneezing and scratching your eyes out when the fall season begins, it’s time to take a closer look at what you can do inside your home to get some relief.

Along with finding the best HVAC company to meet your needs, here are three indoor air quality tips you can use to keep fall allergies at bay:

1. Perform an Indoor Air Quality Check

Did you know indoor air pollution can be seven times greater than the smog you deal with outdoors? Cleaning products are major contributors to the problem. However, something as simple as the paint you used for your hallway can pump out harmful gases for years.

Of course, you also can’t forget the problem of outside allergens making their way into your home and exacerbating your allergy symptoms. Allergen and contaminant removal and air filtration devices can go a long way to clean up the air in your home. Sensitive homeowners might consider heavy-duty solutions, like the products available through the Healthy Climate® Solutions from Lennox line.

The first step is to have a professional conduct an indoor air quality audit to find out how much your air quality is suffering.

2. Use Humidity Control to Your Advantage

Residents in South Carolina are no strangers to humidity, but you may not realize how much it can impact your health. Too-moist conditions encourage mildew and mold growth. Both will be an issue for those with respiratory problems or compromised immune systems. Too-dry air is just as problematic. It leaves your sensitive membranes in the nose and throat irritated and more susceptible to infection.

3. Make Sure Your Gas Appliances Have Proper Ventilation

People forget the V in HVAC stands for “ventilation.” A trusted heating and cooling technician can check to make sure your furnace, water heater, stove, dryer and other gas appliances safely vent outdoors. Carbon dioxide leaks at home can cause similar symptoms to allergies, flus and colds, but left unchecked are serious health and safety hazards.
