As we head deeper into the spring season and the weather continues to warm up, you may notice some changes in your indoor air quality. This includes pollen collecting on your furniture, pet hair polluting your home, or other allergens in the air that you can’t even see! If you want better indoor air quality during allergy season, follow these tips.
Did you know harmful allergens and other contaminants are brought into your home every time you enter the house? Pollen, dirt, debris, and dander enter your house through your clothes, shoes, skin, and in your hair. Keeping these allergens to a minimum is an absolute must, and a good rule of thumb for doing so is “if it takes less than 5 minutes, just do it”. Simply keep a cleaner home by cleaning! Dusting, vacuuming, changing your air filters, wiping down surfaces, and clearing clutter can go a long way in keeping your home (and the air you breathe) clean at all times!
When was the last time you changed your air filters in your HVAC system? If it’s been a while, your filters may be full of allergens that have been caught and built up over time. Allergens quickly build up in our air filters and flow through your HVAC system and back into your home. A dirty air filter makes your system work harder to push air through causing you to experience rising energy bills.
As a general rule of thumb, change your filter every 1-3 months, or monthly if you have pets or people who suffer from severe allergies in your home. Replacing your filters is one step towards breathing fresh, clean air to keep you and your family safe and healthy.
Alright, you don’t necessarily have to go overboard with pampering your fur babies, but keeping them groomed is a MUST. All pets with fur shed dander throughout your home and bring in other allergens like pollen, dirt, debris, and even bugs from outdoors. That’s not to say having a pet is a bad thing! They’re actually extremely helpful in building up your immune system, and of course making your home a happier place. However, it’s never a bad idea to try and keep your home as clean as possible, and keeping your pets groomed is a step in the right direction!
Did you know preventative maintenance can help keep the inside of your home cleaner? Your HVAC system needs regular maintenance to ensure that it operates properly and efficiently. Maintenance checks are a great way to ensure your system is running its best and filtering its best as well!

Our maintenance plans reduce your risk of costly emergency repairs and premature system breakdown. If needed, we can also help change your air filter as well!
