Spring and Indoor Air Quality: Pollen Hits Before Heat. Are You Ready?

Everyone knows that the coming of spring brings along with it more than just warmer weather. Spring is pollen season, after all, which means those who suffer allergies on a regular basis often experience flare-ups starting in April. A lot of people think that the best way to avoid pollen is to stay inside when they’re experiencing issues, but this is actually not always a solution. Pollen can easily affect indoor air quality, and the culprit is often your Air conditioning system.

Pollen and your AC Unit

Your AC unit may seem like a unitasker, but it actually serves a number of different functions. Perhaps most importantly, your air conditioning system acts as a filter, ensuring that the air quality within your home is second to none. As one might expect, issues can arise when the filtration abilities of your air conditioner aren’t working up to speed. Pollen can easily invade your living space, resulting in a number of health issues that can get in the way for you and your family.

As your AC unit begins to see more and more use, problems related to pollen can can get worse with each passing day. This doesn’t even take into consideration the fact that dust and mold may be infiltrating your living space, both of which can cause health problems such as sinus issues, headaches and fatigue. Focusing on improving your home’s indoor air quality, then, is an essential need that cannot be overlooked.

The Solution — Cleaning Your AC Unit

If you or members of your family suffer from pollen allergies, there’s no better time than now to start thinking about getting your AC unit cleaned. Remember that pollen hits well before the hot weather comes through, and the sooner you can work towards ensuring that it doesn’t become a problem, the less likely it is that you’ll experience indoor air quality issues this year.

Air conditioning maintenance doesn’t have to be costly, and you can expect the following benefits —

  • Lower Energy Bills
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality
  • Increased Comfort Levels
  • Better AC Performance

So don’t wait around any longer — contact us today to set up an appointment to have your AC unit cleaned.
