How Does Air Conditioning Help Allergies?


For people that suffer from seasonal allergies, the next few months can be brutal with pollen and other irritants in the air. An air-conditioned home can provide relief from outdoor allergens—if it’s properly maintained.

Check and Change Air Filters
Filters can catch allergens that have made their way into the home and prevent them from circulating. To help keep the air in your home fresh and clean, you should be checking filters monthly and replacing as needed. Running an air conditioner with a clogged filter can damage the system and spread irritants back into the house—aggravating allergies.

Dust Regularly
Air vents and registers are a common place for dust to accumulate. When the air conditioning turns on, this dust can be blown into the air and cause breathing problems for those with allergies. As part of your regular cleaning routine, make sure to vacuum in and around air vents and registers to keep clean air flowing through your home.

Schedule Annual AC Maintenance
Yearly air conditioner maintenance has a number of benefits. Not only will it improve efficiency and help extend the unit’s lifespan—regular tune-ups can help keep the air in your home clean. Many air conditioners collect dust and debris throughout the year and during annual maintenance, a certified technician performs a thorough inspection and cleans key components—helping everyone in the home breathe easier.

Team Harding is now scheduling AC maintenance appointments.
