Have you ever turned on your central air conditioner and suddenly found yourself coughing or sneezing? It’s not your imagination: it could be allergies, and your air conditioner could be making the situation worse.
Air conditioners don’t make allergens, but they do move air – and that air could contain contaminants that are triggering your allergies. If you consistently experience symptoms when you turn on your cooling system, allergens are more than likely the culprit.
Here are some of the allergens and other contaminants you’re likely to encounter in your indoor air, and what you can do to address them.
One of the best ways to battle allergies in your indoor air is to keep your air conditioner running at its best. A well-maintained HVAC system will improve airflow and discourage the build-up of allergens and microorganisms in your system – particularly if you install indoor air quality equipment to lend a hand.
In short: keep your air conditioner running it well and you’ll breathe easier at night – literally!
