As we welcome back summer to Fort Worth we also have to welcome back something a lot less pleasant: allergies. While your home should be a safe haven from all the discomforts of nature, allergies are often an unfortunate exception. However, routine air conditioner service can help soothe those annoyances and make a big impact in your comfort.
While many spring and summer allergies are due to the activities of trees, flowers, and grasses, the majority of indoor allergies are actually due to conditions already in your home. Different types of dust can collect in your home’s air ducts which then get sent throughout each and every room every time your air conditioner runs. Beyond dust knocked loose from the walls of your duct work, your air conditioner, air handler or furnace blower motor can also contain microbes, pet dander, dead insect matter, and sometimes.
In fact, Indoor air pollution levels can be two to five times higher than outdoors. 1
If your air conditioning system is contributing to your family’s allergies, your kids will probably be the ones to suffer first2. That’s because their lungs are less developed and will become irritated more noticeably in the presence of contaminated air.
The first thing to consider if you think your air conditioner may be compounding you or your family’s allergies is upgrading your air filter to one with greater protection against allergens. High efficiency air filters have a MERV rating greater than 14. Calverley can provide a free estimate and install a high-efficiency filter system for you.
If a new air filter doesn’t lessen your family’s allergy problems or you want to feel certain that your air conditioner and ducts are free from dust, microbes, and other air contaminants, call the Fort Worth HVAC experts at Calverley Service Experts to schedule air conditioner service now. A licensed and experienced technician will be at your home shortly with all the tools and expertise required to make an assessment of the health of your air conditioner.
