POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric, a BBB A+ accredited business and recipient of more than 1,000 5-star consumer reviews, is offering advice to homeowners as warmer weather arrives in the Hudson Valley, and with it pollen and other air quality issues.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies, creating an $18 billion industry each year. Common allergens include mold spores, dust mites, cat/dog dander and pollen. However, there are ways to lessen the effects of these irritants, at least indoors.
"There are a lot of steps homeowners can take to improve their indoor air quality, but one of the biggest — and best — options is scheduling a tune-up to their heating and cooling system," said Tommy Webber, owner of T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric. "A home's HVAC system is responsible for circulating air through your home, and its maintenance has to be a priority. A neglected system can develop moisture and mold, which release harmful spores into the air you're breathing."
Webber said regular tune-ups will also help homeowners keep monthly energy costs low and lengthen the life of the HVAC system. Many homeowners might not be aware that skipping annual maintenance can often void a manufacturer's warranty.
There are a number of other options that can also improve air quality, including:
- Checking air filters and replacing, if necessary
- Scheduling a duct cleaning
- Installing a whole house humidifier
- Cleaning regularly, weekly if possible
- Buying an indoor plant, which can help filter out volatile organic compounds
- Installing an air sanitizing system, which uses UV lamps to destroy bacteria and prevent mold from cycling through the HVAC unit
"When cold weather comes in, homeowners will start prepping their homes with insulation and other efficiency upgrades, because they want their home to be comfortable and cost-effective," Webber said. "The same logic should apply to warm weather. Your home has been shut up for months, and it's time to get it ready for spring and summer. By improving your home's air quality, you're creating a better environment for you and your family."
