Allergy Season? We Can Help!


Spring officially begins at the end of March. While most people will welcome the warmer weather, there are many who will start to experience the aggravation of allergy symptoms. Yes, spring is allergy season, and there are probably people in your household (maybe you!) who have to deal with the irritation of allergies and asthma during this time of year.

There are medical methods to deal with allergies. Obviously, we can’t give you any professional advice regarding medicine—check in with your doctor. But we can give you assistance with your home’s HVAC system that can make a significant difference in how allergy season affects your household. For example, the installation of air filtration systems and air purifiers in Eden Prairie, MN. We’ll look a bit closer into allergy season and the ways our HVAC team can help. 

Explaining Allergy Season

Why does “allergy season” occur? As the weather starts to warm up during the spring, various plants begin to send common allergens such as pollen, mold, and dust into the air. These outdoor irritants will easily find their way into your home, lowering your indoor air quality and triggering and worsening allergy symptoms. For example, pollen can hitch a ride on clothing or pets and infiltrate your home. Ragweed pollen is one of the worst of these allergens that make this time of the year difficult for many.

An HVAC Solution? Yes!

Because your HVAC system circulates air throughout your home, it’s a key place where you can combat the allergens that can make this time of the year difficult. Our technicians have methods to help.

Air Filters: Your First Line of Defense

One of the primary ways we help alleviate allergy symptoms is through high-quality, whole-house air filters. These filters trap and remove allergens, preventing them from circulating in your home. We offer a range of filter options of different strengths. Our experts can guide you in choosing the most suitable filter for your HVAC system and recommend replacement schedules to ensure optimal performance.

Air Purifiers: An Additional Layer of Defense

In addition to air filters, we recommend installing air purifiers into your HVAC system. Air purifiers work to further cleanse the air by targeting and eliminating microscopic particles, bacteria, and viruses. Our team can help you select the right type of air purifier based on your specific needs, whether it’s a UV air purifier, ionizer, or a combination of technologies.

Identifying and Repairing Damaged Ducts

Damaged ducts can contribute to indoor air quality issues. Leaks and tears in the ductwork allow allergens to enter your living spaces (as well as make the HVAC system’s job harder). Our skilled technicians specialize in identifying and repairing damaged ducts, ensuring that your system operates efficiently and maintains a healthy indoor environment.

You Can Help As Well

There are some simple steps you can take to complement our HVAC solutions to allergy issues. Regular cleaning and dusting routines, as well as keeping windows and doors closed during peak allergy times, will help your home stay healthier.
