Is Your Air Conditioning Causing Seasonal Allergies?

Your HVAC and seasonal allergies

Spring is finally upon us and warmer weather is on its way. Yet, if you suffer from allergies, Spring isn’t as appealing. It is a horrible feeling to deal with moderate to severe allergies continuously throughout the day. You can control the outdoor environment but you can improve the air quality inside your home. Let’s take a look at how your HVAC system can bring you relief from your allergies while you’re at home.

Good maintenance = good air quality

A well maintained HVAC system can do wonders for reducing allergies. Instead of popping open windows to let air come in, use your air conditioning to filter out allergens. In order for your A/C to accomplish this it must be kept clean. Regularly change the air filters that capture airborne allergens that deposit themselves in rugs, carpet, and upholstery. You can do this yourself or if you suffer severely from allergies you may want to have a professional change filters.


If you are in a home with centralized air systems, you should have the ducts cleaned regularly. Duct work can be a haven for dust and mold if it is not consistently cleaned. Third Generation can help you get your duct work in top shape so that your allergies do not flare up. When we arrive to do air conditioning repairs or other AC service we can take out time to have your ducts cleaned as well.

A clean HVAC system can help you feel better while you’re at home and even improve the quality of your sleep. You can also make use of humidifiers and air purifiers to relieve other symptoms. We hope you have a healthy Spring!
