How Seasonal Allergies Can Affect Your Health

November 20, 2023 | Blog

Improving Meridian Indoor Air Quality

The Mississippi air plays a vital role in your health and well-being. It’s never a good idea to neglect your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ), especially for people prone to seasonal allergies. Air pollutants are waiting to get inside and attack your sinuses, so you don’t want to be left defenseless.

Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning understands that your indoor air quality is a prime concern. That’s why we offer our professional air quality testing and AC services. Seasonal allergies are more than just a nuisance, so let’s examine what they mean for you and how to better protect yourself against them.

The Importance Of Clean Air Quality

What could be more important than the oxygen you breathe? Since your indoor air will be moving through your lungs day and night, it’s crucial that it is clean and safe. For this reason, good IAQ isn’t just a luxury — it’s a deciding factor for your health.

There are various ways poor IAQ can negatively affect your health. It can trigger or intensify respiratory problems like asthma and bronchitis. Airborne infections are known to thrive in places with improper air filtration. The pollutants can even contribute to heart problems.

Investing in this service will help you in more ways than you might think. Healthy oxygen helps improve sleep quality and productivity. Pollutants and impurities won’t be able to reach you as easily. Your comfortability and mood can both benefit from proper IAQ, making it a literal breath of fresh air!

How Seasonal Allergies Affect IAQ

When left unchecked, seasonal allergens can do a lot of harm to your house’s IAQ. Incessant sneezing and sniffling aren’t the only side effects you might experience. There are plenty of impacts that one can easily miss. Seasonal allergens could affect your oxygen in the following ways:

  • Allergens can freely enter and remain in your house without proper filtration.
  • Dust mites thrive during the humid and warmer seasons.
  • Improperly maintained AC systems can circulate allergens indoors.

When the necessary steps aren’t taken to protect yourself from these impurities, your oxygen quality will suffer. That’s why Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning offers expert services for your household comfort. Here in Meridian, seasonal allergies don’t need to be a losing battle.

IAQ Solutions To Help With Seasonal Allergies

There are plenty of ways you can combat air pollutants at home. By staying on top of your IAQ, you can make life more comfortable while also investing in your long-term health.

Regular HVAC Maintenance

Your HVAC system as a whole can help out a lot more with proper maintenance. Make sure to clean or replace your AC filters every one to three months. During peak allergy seasons, doing this regularly will keep your air as clean as possible. You can also periodically check your house for leaks, mold or dust buildup that might interfere with your system.

A professional tune-up is the best way to ensure your HVAC setup is working as intended. You can call Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule one today!

Control Your Humidity

Mold and dust mites can accumulate in your home when humidity levels are too high. A humidity level between 30% and 50% is the best condition for your household. A dehumidifier can help to lower humidity, especially in damp areas like basements.

Use HEPA Filters

High-efficiency particulate Air (HEPA) filters are good for capturing tiny allergens like pollen, dust mites and pet dander. By installing one, you can improve your home’s air filtration and your own well-being. Like other HVAC systems, HEPA filters will need to be regularly maintained and replaced as needed.

Professional Duct Cleaning

A proper duct cleaning can get rid of any accumulated dust, pollen and other debris from your house’s ductwork. Regular cleaning every few years will help keep your average IAQ high. This kind of task is suited to professionals, so don’t hesitate to reach out to Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning for assistance.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Highly Recommend Using Heblon

My AC wouldn’t turn on so I called Heblon . It was a Sunday and from calling the office to the engineer arriving took about 45 minutes. The engineer was professional and gave me excellent feedback on the issue. Repaired within 45 minutes and couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend using Heblon, and will definitely be using them from now on.

I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Heblon. My family is grateful for them.
