Spring is here in Birmingham, bringing warmer weather, blooming flowers, and for many, allergies. Luckily, with HVAC service to improve your home’s indoor air quality, there are ways to alleviate allergy symptoms and help those with respiratory illnesses in your home breathe a little easier.

At KS Services, we offer several professional HVAC services to remove allergens from your home’s air. If you or your family members are especially prone to allergy-induced itchy eyes, sneezing, and congestion, we recommend the following preventative maintenance services this spring:

Regular HVAC Tune-Up

Not only is preventive maintenance each spring the best way to keep your HVAC system in top form, it’s also most likely to improve your home’s air quality.

Dust, dirt, and other debris collect inside your air conditioner’s components all winter, reducing airflow and contributing to poor indoor air quality. At your springtime HVAC service appointment, a technician inspects, cleans, lubricates, and tunes your cooling system.

This eliminates all those potentially harmful particles and allows for a steady stream of cool air well into the summer. Not to mention, a well-maintained system also helps control your home’s humidity levels, which, if left unchecked, leave the potential for mold growth.

Air Filter Cleaning

Neglect this task and you risk blowing dusty air into your rooms and further agitating allergy symptoms. Some filters need to replaced outright at least monthly, while others are washable or reusable.

A clean air filter improves airflow, extends system life, and reduces the number of contaminants throughout your home’s air. It’s a simple enough chore, but if you’re not a do-it-yourselfer, our technicians are happy to assist you and replace air filters during your routine spring HVAC service appointment. 

Air Duct Cleaning

Your air ducts harbor all sorts of allergens ranging from pet dander to mold ready to stir up your allergies the moment you turn on the system. To keep these harmful particles from floating around in your home’s air, we recommend professional air duct cleaning in addition to general HVAC maintenance at least once a year.

This HVAC service involves commercial equipment with high-powered suction, intensive filtration, and adjusting brushes. We brush dust from your ducts and suction it through filtration equipment to remove from your home.

Ultraviolet Light Air Cleaner Installation

Another way to eliminate allergens in your home is to stop them at the source. Your air conditioner’s evaporator coil carries cold refrigerant from your unit, which often causes condensation and harbors mold growth.

Ultraviolet light air cleaners attach to the inside of your outdoor air handler. There they neutralize mold spores and other potentially harmful bacteria. This prevents them from ever entering your home’s air.

Humidification System Upgrade

Moisture control helps keep your home’s air healthy. Too much humidity creates a potential breeding ground for mold. Not enough results in dry air that triggers allergy symptoms.

Dehumidifiers work to remove extra moisture from the air, make your home feel cooler, and lower the chances of mold growth. Conversely, people who suffer from nosebleeds, dry sinuses and recurrent colds might find relief from adding moisture to their home environment with a humidifier.
