How to Minimize Fall Allergies

Written by: Metro Air

Fall season is officially here.  And unfortunately, allergy season isn’t quite over. But, there is good news. You can help minimize fall allergy symptoms with some of these helpful tips.

#1: Schedule your preventative maintenance appointment.
Your furnace will accumulate dust, dirt, and other allergens over time. These contaminants can make their way in from the equipment to the air you breathe. Scheduling a regular fall tune-up will help improve your system’s performance and energy efficiency rating. And because our team at Metro Air Heating and Cooling will also clean the system inside, you can rest assured knowing that excess debris or other matter has been removed. This not only helps your allergies, but it also helps prolong the life of your system.

#2: Clean or replace your air filters.
Your filters should be cleaned or replaced every other month. If you own multiple pets, smoke, or live in an area with higher rates of pollution, the filter should be changed every month. Air filters capture airborne contaminants that cycles air into your home. And, dirty air filters will contribute to dirty air and that translates to more allergy symptoms.

#3: Consider an air purification system.
Customers that use air purifiers often note that their allergy symptoms are dramatically better. Some of our most popular air purification systems that we install are:
