Routine maintenance on your heating and air system is the first step towards fighting allergens in your home. A preventative maintenance plan with KS Services provides you with choices to fit your budget while keeping your unit healthy and clean year-round.
Common Allergens Floating Throughout Your Home
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Pest droppings
Your heating and air system has a filter designed to trap a majority of these contaminants when they are floating through the air. However, these allergens can still affect you and cause allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and respiratory issues.
Mold, mildew, and dust mites can develop inside your heating and air unit and circulate throughout your ductworks.
This is why maintenance is essential to your health and indoor air quality in your home. Our NATE-certified technicians will check your filter, replacing it when necessary, and inspect your heating and air unit for traces of mold and other contaminants.
We will ensure your heating and cooling system is clean during a maintenance call so you can breathe easier throughout the day.
Take Control with IAQ Products
Aside from keeping your heating and air unit clean, there are indoor air quality products to reduce the number of allergens entering your home. If you are ready to obliterate ragweed, dust and other particulates in your home, consider installing:
- Media Air Cleaners: Help your heating and air system fight against allergens by installing a media air cleaner. This high-efficiency cleaner provides your HVAC unit with a second layer of filtration before the air is circulated throughout your home.
It requires minimal maintenance and traps mold spores, pet dander, and more. It lasts longer than your standard filter in your heating and air unit and works in almost any system.
The filter boasts high MERV ratings and only needs replaced once every 6 to 12 months, depending on the number of allergens in your home. If your pet lives indoors or you are a smoker, you will need to change the filter sooner than 12 months.
- Ultraviolet Air Purifiers: The latest advancement in indoor air quality products, UV air purifiers remove microorganisms by killing them with harmful ultraviolet light.
As allergens pass through the UV air purifier, the rays incinerate them. Because there is no filter, you don’t have to worry about particulates clogging it and affecting its performance. An ultraviolet air purifier is effective against dust, mold, pet dander, pollen and other allergens seeping into your air.
