Springtime in Ohio is incredibly beautiful, with its temperate weather encouraging long walks, backyard picnics and other fun outdoor activities. However, it’s also the key season for colds and allergies, which are something you can easily avoid by taking the appropriate precautions. Here Bill Reynolds Heating & Air Conditioning, a premier heating and cooling service provider in the area, shares some of the ways you can beat seasonal colds and allergies.
Change the air filters. Seasonal allergies have many triggers, the most common of which is dust. Even if you make it a point to rarely go outside, indoor air can still expose you to it. For this reason, you should check your air filters regularly for dust and dirt buildup. Clogged filters not only hamper the flow of air through your HVAC system, they also contribute to poor indoor air quality by allowing dust to circulate throughout your house. You can avoid exposure to it – and prevent allergy triggers – by changing your air filters at least once a month.
Deal with dry indoor air. Your home needs to have the right level of humidity to prevent dry air, a common cause for sore throat and dry, irritated nasal passages. Continuous exposure to dry indoor air can actually make you sick, or if you already have a cold, make it even worse. You can mitigate this by turning to a trusted HVAC company like Bill Reynolds Heating & Air Conditioning. We’re not just an air conditioning repair expert – we’re also your go-to company for exceptional indoor air quality products. Check out our line of high-quality humidifiers from Carrier®, which gets rid of dry air, makes breathing easier and more comfortable and helps eliminate the potential for seasonal colds.
Have an air purification system installed. Did you know that indoor air has twice the amount of contaminants as outdoor air? From pet dander, dirt and pollen to mold spores, fumes and bacteria – all of these can cause poor air quality inside your home. You don’t want to be vulnerable to these pollutants, so you should consider investing in Carrier air purification systems from Bill Reynolds Heating & Air Conditioning. Our superior options use Captures & Kills® technology to eliminate up to 99% of select airborne pathogens captured by a MERV 15 filter.
