Does My AC Help with My Allergies?

April 9, 2021 | Blog

When it comes to the changing seasons, there are airborne allergies that come with it. In the spring especially, tree, grass and ragweed pollen is very present in the air. Ideally, your home should be a safe place away from the outdoors, but can your AC actually help? The answer is yes! Keep reading to find out how to combat some of the Pensacola allergens in your home.

What are common allergies?

In your daily life, you probably come in contact with common allergens such as dirt, pollen, dust and pet dander. These can occur anytime throughout the year.

However, different seasons bring more allergens. Spring specifically is more common to cause tree pollen and mold that is most commonly spread by the wind. This is why people’s allergies can feel worse at this time of year.

There are various precautions you can take for allergy relief such as regularly cleaning your home, washing yourself and your pets after going outside, and most importantly, having a well-functioning Air Conditioning system.


How your AC can help

A key way your AC can help with your allergies is through the filters that are installed. Air filters are key because they can trap many particles in the air, so they don’t come into your home. Filters can help catch contaminants such as dust, pet dander, and other allergens.

What you may not realize is that high humidity can raise the number of allergens in your home. Pollutants such as mold and fungus grow better in warmer conditions so if your home is humid, it could be affecting your allergies.

Luckily, an efficient AC will regulate the humidity levels in your home, keeping it at an ideal range of 30 to 50 percent to prevent mold and fungus from growing.


Professional Care

Now that you know that your AC can help with allergy relief, you should know the importance of AC maintenance. If you don’t regularly get your system inspected, it has the potential to be working at less than peak performance.

You should get on a regular schedule of changing your air filters every 90 days on your own. Along with this, your ac maintenance appointment should be scheduled at least once a year. Your technician will clean the ducts and other filters, preventing them from circulating previously trapped allergens.

Your AC technician will also check for any leaks or other issues that may cause increases in humidity or inefficiency in your system’s functioning to keep you cool.
