Spring has sprung! After another New England winter, Massachusetts residents are more than for ready all the things spring brings: warmer weather, blooming flowers, plenty of sunshine, and of course, allergies. We bet you’ve stocked up for the season at the drugstore, but have you prepped your home?

Keep Your Cooling System in Tip-Top Shape

When properly maintained, high-efficiency cooling systems significantly improve indoor air quality. Use these tips to keep your air conditioning unit happy and healthy and your family will stay that way too.

Annual Tune-Up
Have you scheduled your annual A/C tune-up? Yearly maintenance from a certified technician ensures that your system will keep allergens and pollutants outside where they belong.

DIY Maintenance
Keep an eye on your HVAC system air filters. Replacing your system’s filter every four to six weeks allows clean air to flow through.

Consider an Upgrade
If your current cooling system is 10 years old or older, it could be time to replace it with a new high-efficiency model with greater filtration capacity.

Other Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Keep your home clean. Regular vacuuming and dusting reduces dust, mold, pollen, dander, and other common allergens.

Use a dehumidifier in high humidity. Keep humidity levels in the 30%-50% range to limit the growth of mold and other allergens.

Add air-filtering plants. English Ivy, Peace Lilies, and Chrysanthemums all help to filter out toxins in the air.
