Breathing Easy: 5 Ways Your HVAC System Can Combat Seasonal Allergies

Allergy Season

Ah, springtime—the season of blooming flowers, chirping birds, and... sneeze-inducing pollen. If you find yourself reaching for the tissue box more often than not, you're not alone. But fear not! Your trusty HVAC system can be your secret weapon in the battle against seasonal allergies.

Here are five ways your HVAC system can help you reclaim your nasal sanity:

1. High-Quality Air Filtration: Think of air filters as tiny superheroes, swooping in to capture those pesky allergens before they have a chance to wreak havoc on your sinuses. With top-of-the-line filters, you can say goodbye to pollen, dust mites, and pet dander faster than you can say "gesundheit!"


Merv 13 Filter

  • Genuine Aprilaire filters are effective for 6-12 months compared to the traditional 1-3 month filter, saving you time and money. The 4-inch filters provide more filter area for harmful particles to be captured compared to the traditional 1-inch filters.

  • Create a Healthier Home by preventing airborne allergens from circulating through the air in your home by trapping common airborne allergens as they pass through the filter

  • Create Healthier Air by capturing 93% of airborne viruses that pass through the filtering system

  • Better Performance thanks to the patented Aprilaire Self-Seal Technology which minimizes the amount of air bypassing the filter

  • Easy As 1 2 3 to Install in the unique Aprilaire Interlock Rail System. Unpack. Slide in. Close the door. Done.

2. Regular Maintenance: Let's face it—your HVAC system works hard, and it deserves a little TLC every now and then. Regular maintenance ensures your system is running smoothly and efficiently, so you can focus on more important things, like enjoying the great indoors allergy-free.

3. Humidity Control: Too much moisture in the air can turn your home into a breeding ground for mold and mildew. With humidity control systems, you can keep these unwelcome visitors at bay and maintain a comfortable, allergen-free environment.

Humidity Dial
  • Set the Fan to AUTO - As the refrigerant coils in your air conditioner absorb heat and moisture, cold air is blown in. The moisture stays behind and collects on the coils. If you keep the fan set to ON, the moisture will continue to be blown back inside. Setting it to AUTO allows the AC to shut off between cooling cycles. The condensation on the coils can then drain properly, rather than contribute to the humidity level inside your home.

  • Adjust Fan Speed - An AC doesn’t remove moisture as effectively at higher fan settings. Cooler air moves into your home more quickly, but this doesn’t allow humidity to be removed effectively. At lower speeds, a lower rate of airflow results in a colder indoor coil, which removes more moisture and maintains temperature settings more effectively.

  • Change the Filter Regularly - A clogged filter not only increases the risk of exposure to dust and debris. It can also trap moisture and cause it to collect in the ducts. The result can be increased indoor humidity and the growth of mold and airborne bacteria that can be harmful to your health.

  • Clean the Coils - A dirty coil is less capable of removing heat and humidity. As a result, your home won’t get as cool and moisture may build up indoors. Dirty coils can be the result of a clogged filter, in which case the blower fan draws particulates into the system. To prevent this, call Ryf Heating @ 920-582-4451 to schedule your AC cleaning.

What's in your air?

  1. The EPA Ranks Indoor Air Pollution as a Top 5 Environmental Danger. The most commonly discovered sources of indoor air pollution include combustion sources, building materials, chemical products, organic matter and outdoor air pollution which makes its way indoors.

  2. Hundreds of Harmful Chemicals are Released Every day. Small things most people do on a daily basis can quickly lead to a dramatic deterioration of indoor air quality. Hundreds of potentially harmful chemicals are emitted or released by household cleaning agents, personal care products, paint, and solvents used on a regular basis.

  3. The Quality of Indoor Air Can Be More Polluted Than Outside Air. One of the most surprising statistics reported by the EPA is that the level of indoor air pollution can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the worst outside air.

  4. Pediatric Asthma Rates Have Jumped 72%. Numerous indoor air pollutants have been directly tied to causing or increasing the risk of asthma developing in children. By purifying the air you breath in your home, you will be crating a more favorable environment for your kids and your health.
