Does Indoor Air Quality Impact Allergies?

Written by: Metro Air

Springtime brings beautiful blooms and sunnier weather. Unfortunately, people living with allergies or asthma are often miserable this time of year! Did you know that your indoor air quality can impact allergies? Here’s how your HVAC system plays a part in this and how you can make sure you can minimize your allergy symptoms.

#1: Schedule your spring tune-up.
Your heating and cooling system accumulates dirt, dust, pollen, and other allergens. These enter the equipment and are circulated through the air. Making sure you stay on top of preventative maintenance is a great way to ensure the system is cleaned and functioning at its peak. Our team at Metro Air Heating and Cooling will clean the filters as well as the outside and inside components. This will help your allergies! Not to mention, you can take a breath of relief knowing that preventative maintenance also helps prolong the life of the system.

#2: Add an air filter system.
Bacteria, pollen, allergens, mold spores, viruses, and more travel through the air. This contributes to asthma, allergies, and illness. The easiest way to combat unclean air is with a top notch air purification system. Our Bryant air purification systems can help! Here are two of the most popular.

Evolution® Perfect Air ™ Purifier:
This outstanding system cleans the air in your home in only seconds. One of the most revolutionary features is the Capture and Kills™ technology. This catches up to 99% airborne germs, viruses, bacteria and mold, then zaps them with an electrical charge to destroy them.

Bryant Preferred™ Series Air Purifier:
This system also uses the Capture and Kills™ technology and traps up to 96% of airborne germs and pathogens that cause the flu, common cold, and strep. This purifier is great for smaller spaces.

#3: Don’t neglect changing your air filters.
Filters in your system should be checked regularly and cleaned or replaced often. This is especially true if you own pets or if you suffer from seasonal allergies! We recommend changing your one-inch filters every 1-2 months. If you have four-inch media filters, we recommend changing them every 3-6 months.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to those pesky allergy symptoms? Contact our experts at Metro Air Heating & Cooling for details on air purification systems or to schedule your maintenance appointment. We service all brands! Or we’re glad to help provide options for a new, reliable heating or cooling system installation so you and your family can stay comfortable all year long.

Home Improvements You Can Make with Your Tax Return

Written by: Metro Air

Many homeowners will be getting a tax return this year. Maybe that money will go into a savings account or toward a vacation, but what about using it to improve your home? Certain home improvements will even add value to your home, so when it comes time to sell the house, you’ll be able to ask for more. There are a variety of home improvement options that will not just give you an updated space, but one that’s more comfortable, too.

#1: Insulation.
Insulation is often unseen, but it makes a huge difference in how comfortable your home is. Not enough insulation causes heat to escape through your home’s structure. Adding insulation is an affordable way to ensure your home retains heat in the winter and cool air in the summer. The most critical places to have insulation are your crawlspace, basement, walls, or attic.

#2: New heating and cooling system.
How old is your home’s heating and cooling system? If it’s 15 to 20 years old, you’ll need to consider replacing it soon. Using your tax return money can help pay for a new, energy efficient system that will last for years. A heat pump could be a great option for both heating and cooling in one system. Or perhaps you don’t need a new furnace, but a new air conditioner for later in the year would be wise. Whatever your home needs, our experienced team at Metro Air Heating and Cooling will provide options that fit withing your budget.

#3: Preventative maintenance.
Preventative maintenance on your home heating and cooling system is one of the best ways to maintain its lifespan. Professional tune-ups also help keep your utility bills reasonably priced! In fact, our experienced team at Metro Air Heating and Cooling will check over 30 different items during your preventative maintenance appointment, including:

  • Clean flame sensor
  • Clean condensate line and trap
  • Check/adjust gas pressure
  • Check blower motor current draw
  • Check inducer motor amp draw
  • Measure temperature rise across furnace
  • Perform combustion analysis to verify Carbon Monoxide level

#4: Customer Care Club.
Did you know that we have a Customer Care Club that provides huge savings all year long? For only $15 a month, plus $90 for an initial tune-up of your system (and NO contract), you can get the following benefits:

  • $58 discount on initial tune-ups
