How To Reduce Allergens In Your Home

Posted on June 5, 2023 by admin

Looking for ways to reduce allergens in your home? Check out these HVAC tips from Lancaster Brothers Heating and Cooling to keep your indoor air quality clean and healthy.

If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies, you know how important it is to keep your indoor air quality clean and healthy. While there are many ways to reduce allergens in your home, your heating and cooling system is one of the most effective tools at your disposal. Here are some HVAC tips to help you reduce allergens in your home:

Change Your Air Filters Regularly

One of the easiest ways to keep your indoor air quality clean is to change your air filters regularly. A dirty air filter can’t trap allergens effectively, which means they circulate throughout your home. Be sure to check your air filters at least once a month and change them as needed.

Clean Your Air Ducts

Your air ducts are a prime location for allergens to accumulate. Over time, dust, pollen, and other particles can build up inside your ducts, reducing your indoor air quality. Consider having your air ducts cleaned by a professional HVAC technician to remove allergens and improve your air quality.

Regular Cleaning

Another way to reduce allergens in your home is to stay on top of your cleaning. Vacuum and dust regularly, and consider using a HEPA filter vacuum cleaner, which can trap even the smallest allergen particles. Wash bedding, curtains, and other fabrics frequently, and use a dehumidifier if needed to keep your indoor humidity accurate. If you have pets you can check out these extra steps for reducing allergens and maintenance in our blog article “HVAC Maintenance Tips For Pet Owners”. 

Install a Whole-Home Air Purifier

A whole-home air purifier can remove allergens and other particles from your indoor air, improving your indoor air quality. These devices are installed in your HVAC system and can capture even the smallest allergen particles. Talk to your HVAC technician about installing a whole-home air purifier to keep your indoor air clean. Check out the EPA’s “Guide to Air Cleaners in the Home” to learn more! 

Schedule Regular HVAC Maintenance

Regular HVAC maintenance can help keep your system running smoothly, which can reduce the amount of allergens in your home. A professional HVAC technician can inspect your system, clean it, and make any necessary repairs to ensure that it’s working as efficiently as possible.
