  • How Air Conditioning Can Minimize Your Exposure to Common Allergens

    December 2, 2013

    If you suffer from allergies, your air conditioner may be your best ally against the runny nose, itchy red eyes and sneezing that are some of the most common allergy symptoms. We have been providing dependable Orlando HVAC service for 27 years, so we know how difficult allergy season can be for some of our customers.. In all those years, we have been our customers’ trusted partner in maintaining a comfortable, safe and energy-efficient home.

    To help allergy sufferers relieve the annoying symptoms and discomfort of common allergens such as dust mites, pollen and mold, we suggest keeping doors and windows closed and using air conditioners to maintain an even and cool temperature in your home.

    The Benefits of Air Conditioning

    Using air conditioning greatly decreases the amount of pollen that enters your house. However, don’t forget to change or clean your unit’s filters often during allergy season to avoid particle build up in the system. When particles build up it can cause your AC unit to work harder in order to keep your house at a comfortable temperature. This uses up more energy which can lead to higher energy bills for you.

    Also, by using a humidifier along with your AC, you can reduce the amount of humidity in your house significantly. This can be an effective barrier against the formation of molds in your house. Most allergy causing molds are not toxic; but there are some varieties that can be extremely harmful to small animals and humans. If you suspect you have mold in your house, hire a professional to perform tests and put protective and preventive measures into effect.

    Lower humidity levels also prevent dust mites from proliferating and causing allergic reactions.

    Maintaining your air conditioner properly helps ensure that it can continue to help protect you against common allergens. For the most reliable air conditioning service in Orlando, call us. We have been here for you since 1986 and we’re not going anywhere.
