Hayward HVAC Maintenance Can Help Indoor Allergies – Here’s How

At Ortiz Heating & Air Conditioning, we know that indoor allergies are common – and that the quality of the air inside your home can make a dramatic difference. You sought the comfort of your home to find relief from outdoor allergies, but now the problem is becoming worse even indoors. If you’re sniffling, sneezing and suffering from other allergy symptoms, it could be the air inside your home.

Proper Hayward HVAC maintenance can help, here’s how:

Duct sealing. The duct work is the component of your HVAC system that transports cooled or warmed air into your home. When ducts develop cracks, holes or leaks, dust, dander and other airborne particles get inside the duct work and make their way into your home. This leads to poor indoor air quality, and increased allergy symptoms. Have the air inside your home protected by having your HVAC contractor properly seal your duct work.

Annual HVAC service. No matter what size or type of heating/air conditioning system you have, they all need regular tune-ups to ensure the highest possible efficiency, clean, comfortable air and low energy costs. Having your HVAC system tuned up on an annual basis will ensure that small problems are corrected before they become costly ones, and extend the life of your equipment.

Change your air filter. This is one that every homeowner knows about, but a task that sometimes gets overlooked. The air filter plays an important role in filtering out dirt, dust and other potential allergens. When it becomes dirty and clogged, it cannot do its job. Replace your air filter frequently and enjoy cleaner, healthier indoor air with fewer allergy symptoms.

Having your ducts cleaned can also help reduce indoor allergens, further helping to reduce or eliminate indoor allergies.
