Alleviating Allergies with Help from Your HVAC System

With maintenance, upgrades, and attention to your heating and air conditioning systems, you can use your HVAC system airflow to manage your allergies.

  1. Air filters. The MERV scale, minimum efficiency reporting value scale, rates HVAC filter weaves. It determines the ease with which particles move through the filter. A filter rated 6 to 13 will be better able to remove airborne particles than filters rated below 6. Replace your filters every 1-3 months to prevent clogging and maintain maximum benefits.
  2. Whole house air purifier. Using a whole-house air purifier is much more efficient than a traditional filter or a stand-alone air purifier. These systems can remove up to 99.98% of particles down to 0.1 microns. (Be aware that a small percentage of people may be sensitive to the ozone created by whole-house air purifiers when considering installing this system in your home.)
  3. Whole house humidifier. Low-humidity environments have fewer airborne water droplets, allowing more allergens and germs to spread through the air. In addition, you are more susceptible to illness, viruses, and bacteria when your nasal passages are dry. A whole-house humidifier works in unison with your HVAC system to create your ideal indoor humidity. Higher humidity will help reduce susceptibility to allergens and colds while helping fight cracked skin, dry nostrils, and chapped lips.
  4. Spring cleaning. A dust-free home helps reduce airborne particles. Vacuuming, dusting, and keeping your upholstery clean reduces risk of dust, dirt, and dander from circling through the air in your home. Part of spring cleaning should be dusting your vents and returns, reducing the number of allergens that circle through your HVAC system.
