If you’ve lived in NC for a while, you’re uncomfortably familiar with the yellow cloud of pollen that hangs over the state every spring. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, then you are especially familiar with this pollen. There’s nothing worse than spending the beautiful springtime sneezing and blowing your nose. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take to help lessen your allergy symptoms, and some of those solutions involve your HVAC system.

Typically, you should change your air filter every 30-60 days. If you have pets in your home or you suffer from allergies, you’ll want to stick closer to the 30 day range. This is especially important during the spring and/or fall when you may suffer from seasonal allergies. In between changing your air filters, you can dust them off from time to time to clean any pollen, etc that may have collected on them.

It can also be helpful to purchase special HEPA filters during the times of year when your allergies flare up. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air, and HEPA filters are made of an ultra-fine mesh that will trap and collect tiny particles that traditional filters might miss, such as pollen, that could be causing your allergy symptoms to show up.
