If you have allergies, spring, summer and fall are probably not your favorite seasons in New Jersey. Allergies are heightened during these months, especially with the heightened use of HVAC systems.
New Jersey residents can help reduce the severity of their allergies by maintaining their HVAC systems. Specifically, the filters and duct work. Regardless of what you use to heat or cool your home, you want to ensure that your filters are clean. This will help the HVAC system work its best and also increase the quality of air in your home.
Systems that are not properly installed, maintained, and operated, may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the home’s living space (source: epa.gov). When these contaminants enter the home through HVAC systems, New Jersey residents that suffer allergies, and even those that don’t, can experience uncomfortable side effects.
If you are going to have your HVAC system cleaned, New Jersey residents must make sure that the service provider agrees to clean all components of the system and is qualified to do so. Failure to clean a component of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits. Typically, a service provider will use specialized tools to dislodge dirt and other debris in ducts, then vacuum them out with a high-powered vacuum cleaner.
Cleaning ducts and changing filters helps your HVAC system run more efficiently and saves New Jersey residents money on their utility bill.
