Are allergies affected by our indoor air quality?

While many people associate allergy symptoms with pollen, pollution and other irritants outside your home, your indoor air quality can have a big impact on your symptoms.

Our New England homes are contaminated with outdoor allergens like pollen that make their way in out homes, and by irritants like pet dander, dust mites, mold spores, chemicals from everyday household cleansers and more. So, what can you do about it? The key is in your AC system!

A dirty AC system can foster and distribute allergens throughout your home, so the solution is to keep your system functioning properly and keep your air filters clean. Establish a reminder or indicate it on your calendar to look at them monthly and exchange them out when you see that they’re getting dirty. You can get filters that range from the most basic level of filtering to hospital-grade HEPA filters. The experts at Evolved Mechanical can help you establish which kind of filter will keep your home nourishing and keep your air conditioner functioning properly
It’s also crucial to have your system routinely serviced by an expert to keep your interior air quality where it should be. On top of examining that essential filter, your service specialist will clean the inner workings of your system and make sure that everything is running as it should. You can also ask your specialist if a duct cleaning would be helpful
