Whether you love the warmer weather or you dread the seasonal allergies, spring has arrived in Asheville, North Carolina. Struggling to deal with stale winter air or a springtime pollen invasion? From replacing the air filter to installing a ventilation system, try these four ways to clear the air this spring:
Replace the Air Filter
The first thing you should do this spring is replace your HVAC filter. Mark your calendar to replace the filter again at the start of summer. That way, you can look forward to cleaner indoor air and more efficient HVAC operation.
Be sure to choose a filter with a minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) rating of 10 to 12. It’ll remove as many possible pollutants from your home. As a result, you’ll breathe cleaner and fresher air all season.
Invest in an Air Purifier
If a standard HVAC filter doesn’t do enough to keep your family healthy, invest in an air purifier. Choose a whole-house unit, and connect it to your HVAC system for impressive purification in every room.
The Infinity Air Purifier GAPA eliminates up to 95 percent of pollen, mold and other particles. It even inactivates germs and bacteria, too. As a result, you prevent getting sick and not being able to enjoy the warmer weather and sunshine.
Consider a Ventilation System
If your home’s air constantly feels or smells stale, a ventilation system can help. These systems flush out old air while bringing in fresh air for your HVAC system to disperse through the house. Our team recommends a Performance Energy-Recovery Ventilator, which pre-conditions the incoming air to save energy while providing you with a continual supply of fresh air.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
We always recommend starting each spring with preventive AC maintenance. A routine tune-up gives our team a chance to make sure your air conditioner or heat pump is in good working condition. As a result, it’ll help you achieve optimal indoor air quality throughout the cooling season ahead.
