What’s the best way to reduce indoor allergies at home?

Spring is a busy time for HVAC companies and allergists alike, so it makes sense that paying special attention to your indoor air quality is a good idea. As we inch our way toward allergy season, our technicians are busy advising our clients on the best ways to reduce indoor allergies at home.

Here are our best tips for improving air quality and combating indoor allergies this spring:

  • First and foremost, change your air filters regularly. Choose high-quality filters that offer the best allergen reduction. Look for filters with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) label to eliminate as many airborne allergens as possible.
  • Invest in a vacuum that also has a HEPA filter, and use it frequently to keep floors, furniture and other surfaces dust-free.
  • Consider replacing carpeting with hard flooring where possible. Carpet traps dust, dander and other allergens. It’s easier to clear those substances out of your house if you have hard floors.
  • Ask your HVAC technician about cleaning your air ducts. Over the years, air ducts can become coated with static-charged allergens that cling to those airways. A quick cleaning can go a long way toward reducing indoor allergens.
  • If you haven’t already, ban indoor smoking from your home.
  • Keep your pets well-groomed to reduce shedding and dander build-up.
  • Have an air filtration system installed alongside your existing HVAC system.
