Spring is finally taking hold in the Mid-Atlantic region, and for many residents, it signals the onset of seasonal allergy symptoms. If you haven’t already scheduled your spring HVAC maintenance, now’s the time to do it. Preventive maintenance will help reduce indoor allergens that can trigger allergy attacks, as well as lower utility bills and increase your comfort level this summer.

Professional HVAC Maintenance

Properly maintained HVAC systems last longer, experience fewer problems, and operate more efficiently to save you money and lower your carbon footprint. But if you suffer from allergies, it also can improve indoor air quality to help you breathe easier during allergy season.

Always hire a reputable contractor with skilled technicians for your tune-up. Your technician will perform a list of essential tasks, including cleaning the interior of the system to prevent dust from circulating through your home, measuring the airflow for optimum air cleaning, and flush the condensate drain to prevent mold growth and damage to the system.

DIY HVAC Maintenance

Your annual professional tune-up is only the beginning of maintaining your HVAC system for improved air quality and system efficiency. Perform these monthly tasks during the cooling season to combat indoor allergens all summer long.

  • Inspect the A/C’s air filter and swap it out for a clean one when it’s caked with dust. The air filter removes allergens from incoming air and sends the clean air back into your rooms. Choose a good-quality air filter with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, or MERV, rating of between 8 to 12 to trap the smallest and most potent allergens.
  • Vacuum and dust the area around the indoor unit to prevent dust from getting inside your system, which can decrease indoor air quality and cause the premature failure of the motor, fan and other essential components.
  • Have your ducts professionally cleaned if you notice mold growing nearby, smell a musty odor coming out of the vents, or see dust and dirt coming out of those same vents.
