Efficient Home Solutions may be the HVAC and AC repair experts in Dallas, Plano, Richardson and all over North Texas, but there’s one thing even the EHS Comfort Specialists can’t get comfortable with – and that’s the seasonal allergies here in the Dallas area. Experts believe that more than 40 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies, with the primary triggers being tree, grass and weed pollen, along with mold spores, dust mites and pet dander. (AAFA) More bad news for us seasonal allergy sufferers living in Dallas, Plano, Richardson and all over North Texas – according to a recent report from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), Dallas is No. 19 on the 2013 Fall Allergy Capitals list. The AAFA 2013 Fall Allergy Capitals report ranks the most challenging places to live with allergies this fall in the United States. The rankings are based on pollen levels, use of over-the-counter and prescription allergy medication and the number of Board Certified allergists in each city. Though you can’t do much to curb the pollen count outside, you can certainly take proactive measures to limit the allergens inside your home. This includes taking simple actions like just changing your HVAC system’s air filter. In their extensive review of home remedies for seasonal allergy sufferers (read here), Mayo Clinic recommends you use an air filter with a small-particle or high-efficiency particulate air filter. Is changing your air filter at the beginning of the fall or spring season enough to spot your allergen houseguests? It depends on how bad your allergies are. In the event that you’re overly sensitive to allergens like pollen, ragweed and even pet dander, you should change your filter at least once a month. But even beyond your run-of-the-mill AC filter change, a full AC system cleaning and inspection may be just what you need. Your heating and cooling system can be considered the heart and lungs of your home, taking in air and breathing it out. Generally, the cleaner the lungs, the cleaner the air in your home – and the fewer allergy triggers circulating in the air. While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions or some environmental allergies. That’s why it’s important to get a quality HVAC cleaning done on a regular basis. – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
