With spring comes that breath of fresh air that you’ve needed since fall. Spring is a time for relaxing, letting in the sunlight, and spending time outdoors. But some devious comfort enemies can disrupt all the benefits that spring has to offer. These enemies can take many forms — some of them unexpected — and no Woodbridge, Virginia, homeowner is immune. You can combat allergies and HVAC system inefficiencies to boost your home’s comfort this spring.
Spring allergies are a problem no matter where you live. But you shouldn’t have to worry about them unless you’re especially susceptible, right? Unfortunately, the allergens of spring could affect you in more ways than you realize.
Pollen and other irritants find an easier way into your home when you and your family are spending more time outdoors. Even if you don’t see the particles, you still may experience more frequent headaches, skin and eye irritation, a runny nose, and illness. Not only will these symptoms keep you from experiencing comfort, but they can also take more extended tolls on your health.
Tackle this spring comfort enemy by taking part in a spring cleaning campaign. Clean your home often, especially areas that may not see as much attention, such as bedsheets and curtains. Change your HVAC system air filters monthly.
HVAC System Inefficiency
Speaking of the HVAC system, if not properly cared for, your system can actually become another spring comfort enemy. Throughout the winter, your home’s HVAC system takes on a fair amount of strain, which can reduce efficiency and cause wear on the system. That inefficiency and disrepair will make your home’s HVAC system unable to maintain adequate comfort in your home.
Spring is a great time for routine HVAC system maintenance. One of our Brennan’s Heating and Air Conditioning contractors can assess the needs of your system and bring it back to proper working order if needed.
