Tired of suffering from year-round allergies and colds? If so, the problem
may not be with your immune system but your home’s air-filtration
system. In fact, old or dirty air filters can lead to a number of health
issues and exacerbate pre-existing conditions like asthma, allergies and
respiratory diseases. Here are a couple steps homeowners should take to
keep family members healthy and utility bills on the down low from our
Tampa air conditioning experts:

Replace Filters Regularly

Looking for relief from annoying allergy symptoms? You may need to replace
your air filters more frequently. Air filters work by trapping particles
and pollutants while allowing clean air to pass through. From dust mites
to animal dander, there are many contaminants in the air that can be damaging
to one’s health. A good air filter keeps these substances out of
the air, so your family is breathing while improving the overall effectiveness
of your HVAC system.

Remember to change your filter when the electric bill comes in the mail
or inbox. New filters save you energy and provide better air quality.

Dirty filters not only increase the number of allergens flowing through
the air but they also result in higher utility bills as the system must
work harder to cool your home. A leader in HVAC services, Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning will wash and change your air filter as part of our preventative maintenance. Our monthly maintenance package
offers you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your system will
continue to function at top capacity throughout the year.

Opt for High MERVs

Quality of your indoor air still lagging? If you’ve already cleaned
or replaced your current filter, the problem may be that the MERV rating
is too low. Standing for minimum efficiency recording value, MERV ranges
from 1-20, with 20 providing the best degree of filtration. If your air
seems less than clean, consider purchasing a small-particle or HEPA filter.
You can also adjust your air filter, so clean air hits your face while
you sleep.
