When your allergies flare up this spring and summer, you’ll likely head indoors to take refuge from the pollen and other allergens that make the outdoors unbearable. But did you know that your home’s air could actually be more polluted than the air outside? Don’t worry- with a few maintenance tips, you can use your HVAC system to prevent spring allergies.
Dust A/C vents in Asheville
Dust is one of the leading causes of indoor allergies in spring, and you can see just how much of a problem it is by checking the A/C vent grills. A grill covered in dust is an indicator of low air quality in your home. Dust and wipe down your supply and return vents with a damp rag.
Check for mold in ductwork
Mold is another common allergy culprit that can actually lead to severe health problems. Check your ductwork for mold or mildew growth. If you see a problem, it’s time to call Sheer Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning.

When it comes to fighting allergies, the HVAC system air filter is your best friend. However, once it’s clogged and dirty, it will allow allergens to circulate through your home. Change your air filter at least once monthly to reduce spring and summer allergies.
