May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness month. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® has tips to help improve indoor air quality.
Sarasota, FL (May 1, 2014) – In most places the temperatures are warming, the flowers are blooming and the trees are budding. For some this also means noses are running, throats are itching and the sound of coughing and wheezing fills the air. According to the National Asthma and Allergy Foundation the month of May is peak season for asthma and allergy suffers.  We spend a lot of time indoors and your indoor air quality (IAQ) can create triggers that aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms. Technicians with One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating offer these tips to help:
Dust and clean your home frequently. Wash bed linens and clothing weekly in hot water to kill bacteria and dust mites. Use allergy proof mattress and pillow covers. Keep your pets out of bedrooms and employ ecofriendly controls against insects, pests and rodents. Complete any painting and air out your home before the peak season forces you to close the windows.
Tune Up Time
Have your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system tuned up. A trained technician can clean and inspect your unit, coils and drain pans. Replace the filters for your HVAC system monthly or as required by your system’s manufacturer. A clean filter helps trap dust and pollutants and helps your system operate more efficiently. Ask your technician if a state of the art UV Sterilization unit would be a good fit for your system.
IAQ and Ductwork
The qualified professionals at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning can upgrade your air filtration system and seal leaky duct work with improved indoor air quality and efficiency in mind. We offer many services like duct cleaning to help remove contaminants and offer duct repairs and upgrades to meet new building codes.
