Summer is here! This means blooming flowers, BBQs, fresh-cut grass and a blanket of pollen all through the town. If you’re one of the many people who suffer from hay fever, itchy eyes or other seasonal allergies, this may be a bittersweet season for you. 

Below are some of our top tips to ensure your air conditioning system helps you breathe easier and reduces these uncomfortable symptoms:

  • Invest in high-quality air filters
  • Keep your air conditioning units clean
  • Dust your vents and ducts. Dirty air ducts can also become a haven for contaminants such as mould, mildew, and pollen
  • Schedule annual maintenance and cleaning – Safeguard your home by staying up to date on routine maintenance.

Ensuring you do the above, will prevent allergies from putting a damper on even the most beautiful days.

Here at Woodhouse Environmental, we advise that running your air conditioner will not only keep you cool and comfortable from the summer heat but also extracts excess humidity. This is what causes bacteria and mould to grow in your home, creating an unhealthy environment, which is especially troublesome for those already struggling. 

Furthermore, prolonged exposure to dangerous allergens can cause damage to your AC system and will reduce your indoor air quality (IAQ). Prevent these problems early on by taking proactive steps, both as you do your spring cleaning and throughout the year.
