Spring weather brings with it allergy season. Sneezing, coughing, itching eyes, and other irritating symptoms. Many people ask whether air conditioning can help with allergies. Air conditioners can help control humidity in the home and filter air. Your HVAC system can help with allergies if it is properly serviced and maintained. That is why Cascade Energy Services provides air conditioning maintenance, service, repair, and installation in Snohomish County.
How Air Conditioners Help with Allergies
Things like dust or pet dander are present in your home year-round. An HVAC system with the proper filters can greatly improve your indoor air quality. The filters filter out things like:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Other irritant air particles
When these things are filtered out, they do not get to your lungs. Humidity control is also important to indoor air quality, and an air conditioner helps with that. When there are high moisture levels in the air, mildew, bacteria, and mold can grow. All of which can cause health problems and, for some people, can be deadly. The key to avoiding these problems is the correct humidity ratio.
When Your HVAC System Doesn’t Help
If your air conditioner isn’t properly maintained, the air quality in your home can actually be impacted negatively. This is means your allergies will get worse. If you do not change the filters, often the trapped particles will build up. When that happens, the only place they have to go is right back into your home.
