If you are located anywhere in Georgia, you know what our biggest springtime nuisance is: pollen. The yellow stuff coats every surface in the state for a few months each spring, and besides being an eyesore, it can be very dangerous for those who suffer from asthma and allergies. Sickness from our springtime pollen deluge can hurt not just working families; it can also impact your business’ bottom line. So what can be done to ensure everyone stays healthy? Installing allergen filters in your HVAC system might be the way to go!
Keeping allergens out of your HVAC system
Allergy sufferers in Georgia know full well that springtime means big headaches. As the pollen descends from the trees and flowers to everyone’s yards, windows and black cars, you are bound to hear lots of sneezing (full disclosure: I’m actually sneezing while writing this up!). In fact, 2017 was predicted to be one of the worst pollen seasons on record due to a late freeze in March. So what can you do to make sure your HVAC system is filtering out these allergens, rather than blowing them in everyone’s faces?
The first and most important step is actually regular maintenance. Keeping your system up to date on its service calls and scheduled maintenance is the best way to prevent your HVAC system from becoming a pollen dispersal system. Next is making sure you have clean, working filters in your system, and you may even consider upping the strength of your filter to a HEPA filter with a higher MERV rating. MERV ratings go from 1 to 12, with the higher number indicating the ability to pull smaller and smaller allergens and particulates from the air being pumped through the system. Finally, if you still feel like you are not quite covered; a thorough inspection and cleaning of your ductwork could eliminate any allergens existing inside your system already.
