Reduce Allergens in Your Home with HVAC Maintenance

As Calgary welcomes the vibrant colours of spring, many homeowners also brace for the onset of seasonal allergies. Pollen, dust, and other allergens can significantly compromise indoor living environments, triggering allergies and respiratory issues. Fortunately, your HVAC system is more than just a temperature regulator; it’s a vital tool in maintaining clean and healthy air inside your home. JPS Furnace & Air Conditioning, Calgary’s premier HVAC service provider, specializes in optimizing HVAC systems to combat indoor allergens effectively.

Understanding the Role of HVAC in Allergen Reduction

An HVAC system’s ability to filter out allergens is pivotal in maintaining good indoor air quality, which is crucial for minimizing allergy symptoms. These systems circulate air throughout your home, passing it through filters that catch and contain microscopic allergens.

To keep these systems functioning at their best, regular maintenance is crucial. A well-maintained HVAC system can prevent the recirculation of allergens, thereby enhancing the quality of air you breathe. Explore our specialized services that ensure your HVAC system contributes positively to your home’s air quality by visiting our indoor air quality services.

Choosing the Right Air Filters

The effectiveness of an HVAC system in allergen reduction largely depends on the quality of air filters used. JPS Furnace & Air Conditioning recommends using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters or those with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) of 13 or higher. These filters are adept at trapping fine particles such as pollen, mold spores, and pet dander, significantly reducing allergens in the air.

Regularly replacing these filters is crucial to maintaining air quality, and we provide guidance on optimal replacement schedules and filter types suitable for your specific environment. Learn more about our air filtration systems to enhance your home’s defenses against allergens.

Regular Cleaning and Maintenance

Beyond filter replacement, comprehensive cleaning and maintenance of your HVAC system are vital for allergen control. Accumulated dust and debris can lead to system inefficiencies and increased allergen circulation.

JPS offers detailed HVAC maintenance checks, including cleaning of air ducts and all mechanical components, ensuring that your system operates efficiently and effectively. Regular maintenance not only improves air quality but also extends the lifespan of your system. Book your next HVAC maintenance session with us to ensure it’s in top condition.

Enhancing Air Quality with Additional HVAC Accessories

For households particularly sensitive to allergens, JPS Furnace & Air Conditioning recommends augmenting your HVAC system with additional air quality accessories. UV lights and air purifiers can integrate seamlessly with your existing system, providing an extra layer of protection by neutralizing airborne pathogens and allergens that filters alone may not capture. These technologies are particularly effective in preventing the spread of viruses and eliminating mold spores in the air. Discover how our air purification systems can make a significant difference in your home’s air quality.

Lifestyle Tips to Complement HVAC Maintenance

Enhancing your HVAC system’s capabilities works best alongside proactive household habits:

  • Minimize Clutter: Reducing clutter decreases dust and allergen accumulation surfaces.
  • Enhanced Cleaning Routines: Using a vacuum with a HEPA filter effectively reduces particulate matter in carpets and upholstery.
  • Manage Humidity: Utilize dehumidifiers to maintain optimal humidity levels, thus inhibiting mold growth. JPS offers solutions like whole-home humidifiers that can automatically adjust to the correct humidity levels.
