Springtime means the arrival of pollen. Pollen and other allergens could greatly decrease the quality of the air in your Salem, OR, home. If you’re allergic to pollen, springtime can be a miserable part of the year. Luckily, there are several steps you can take to keep the air in your home clean and free of harmful irritants.
Keep Your HVAC System Running
Your HVAC system is set up with a series of filters that will remove pollen and other particulates from the air. Keeping your system running, even if it’s just the fan, will keep air circulation levels in your home high. Pollen doesn’t do well in moving air and will be pulled into your HVAC system. This will let your HVAC system filter out as much of it as possible.
Close Windows and Doors
Keeping pollen out of your home is important. While it may be tempting to open all windows and doors on a beautiful spring day, keeping everything shut will reduce the pollen count in your home. This is especially important on windy days.
Maintain Clean Air Filters
Keeping the air filters from your HVAC system clean is an important step towards improving indoor air quality. Dirty air filters can’t move as much air through them as clean ones can and will compromise the filtration system. The HVAC maintenance services offered by Loren’s Heating will ensure that your Salem system will run as efficiently as possible. Most air filters need to be replaced every three to six months.
