Prepare Your Home for Spring Allergens

With spring just around the corner, many homeowners are undoubtedly looking forward to the change of the season. What fewer are probably looking forward to, though, are the aggravated allergy symptoms that tend to come hand in hand with spring. If you are one of those people that has just always put up with this problem, why not make this the year that you finally do something about it. We may not be able to make sweeping environmental changes that will completely eliminate allergens, but we can help you to make your home a more hospitable place during the spring season. The key is to achieve and maintain great indoor air quality in Everett, WA.

Purify the Air

Airborne pollutants are among the most problematic of issues that homeowners with allergies face. The issue can be exacerbated by many different factors, including pets in your home and the surrounding environment. Using an effective air filtration system or electronic air cleaner can help you to remove these pollutants from the air, which in turn can help to greatly alleviate your allergy symptoms. Remember, the air filter in your HVAC system is there to protect that system, not the quality of the air throughout your home.

Seal the Ductwork

If the ductwork that you use to distribute conditioned air throughout your home is not properly sealed, you are right to worry about energy efficiency. Wasted energy is not the only problem, though. That ductwork can also pull in pollutants from the air, and then distribute them throughout your entire house. This can really drag down your indoor air quality, so it is wise to have your ductwork professionally sealed.

Eliminate Excess Humidity

Spring can be a pretty wet time of the year. With temperatures warming up, humidity can get a bit out of hand. Having too much humidity in your home can promote the proliferation of biological pollutants there, and moist air can hold pollutants better than dry air. Using a whole-house dehumidifier can help to reduce your allergy symptoms.
