What NOT To Do With Your HVAC If You Have Allergies

When the weather changes, it is normal for homeowners to immediately turn off their air conditioner. The season change from summer into fall allows people to turn off their air conditioners for a brief amount of time before they are forced to turn on their furnaces due to cold weather.

Unfortunately, the transition into fall also brings about pesky allergens. Outdoor allergens such as pollen, grasses, dust, pet hairs, and more get released into the air during this time.

When a household’s air conditioner is still in use, people who suffer from allergies can find relief in the inside of their home. This is because a properly functioning air conditioner ensures that air is sufficiently filtered and circulated through the home, keeping allergens at bay. Turning off your AC (especially turning it off and favoring the use of open windows to cool your home) will only allow more allergens into your home without a means of filtering them out.

Instead of doing this during the season changes, try letting it run at lower levels so that you constantly have air circulation within your home. This will help in removing unwanted allergens from the home instead of allowing them to settle on your home’s surfaces.

This easy adjustment to your household seasonal changes will save you from your allergy nightmares! If your furnace or a unit needs attention or if you’re interested in an air purifier for allergen reduction, contact us today at 905-493-4227 or mail@tauntontrades.com.
