Allergens are carried into your home through the air, settle on the surfaces of your home, and make you and your family uncomfortable. Airborne particles like pet dander, dust mites, and mold make the air in your home harder to breathe and cause coughing and sneezing, red eyes, itchy throats, and runny noses.

The solution: HVAC maintenance Proper HVAC maintenance, especially in the spring, removes allergens that may already be in your air and helps keep new allergens from entering the air you breathe. Try these five spring HVAC maintenance tips to get rid of the pesky allergens in your home:

  1. Purchase high quality furnace filters
  2. Get rid of debris around the outdoor unit…and the indoor one.
  3. Check for mold.
  4. Dust registers and return vents first, then everything else.
  5. Schedule an HVAC maintenance appointment. Spring — or allergy season, as a lot of people call it — is a great time to schedule an HVAC maintenance appointment.
