indoor allergies

Florida may escape some of the harshest winter weather conditions found in other parts of the country, like snow and ice, but that doesn’t mean that the climate never wreaks havoc. Autumn marks the later part of the tropical season in northeast Florida, and for many people, the tropical season equals allergy symptoms. Here are some ways that you can look to your HVAC system to offer some relief from your allergies.

Keep Indoor Humidity Low

It may seem that when the weather starts to cool down after the long Florida summer, it’s a great idea to open the windows and turn down the air conditioning. But during the humid tropical season, opening windows or setting the indoor temperature too warm will cause allergy-producing factors to grow. To keep allergies at a minimum, keep the AC running and the indoor temperature set between 70 and 75 degrees F, with the relative humidity at or below 50 percent. Running the AC will improve your indoor air circulation as well as making the temperature more comfortable.

Symptoms of Indoor Allergies

You may have felt like you’re coming down with a cold. You may have sinus congestion, headaches, or just feel more tired and rundown. If your symptoms last more than a couple weeks, it’s more likely that what you have is allergies related to the tropical season. Your HVAC system may be one way to battle the discomfort.

Other Sources of Indoor Allergens

While your HVAC system is the first and best line of defense in defeating indoor allergies, it isn’t the only action you can take. Your HVAC system works well to remove allergens from the air. But allergens can also become trapped in carpets, furniture, bedding and pillows. Reduce the number of allergens present throughout the rest of your home by attacking them at the source.

Wash bedding and pillows in hot water to kill some of the allergens. Put a plastic, allergy-proof cover on your mattresses to keep out dust mites. Regularly vacuum your carpets and rugs with a vacuum that uses a HEPA filter, or switch to tile, hardwood or laminate flooring. Most importantly, this is a case where general tidiness makes a big difference. Put out roach traps throughout your home and garage to keep pests at bay, and be sure to keep clutter to a minimum.

Get Maintenance Checkups of Your HVAC System

Your HVAC system is easy to take for granted, but its responsibility for heating and cooling your home makes it one of your home’s most important features. Regular maintenance is important to make sure it is running properly and keeping your indoor air safe and clean. In addition to getting it serviced at least once or twice a year, make sure you also regularly change out your furnace filters and rinse out dirt and debris from air conditioning units outdoors. If you’re having any major issues, or just need the expertise of qualified professionals, contact Snyder. We have the experience necessary to make sure you and your family stay comfortable this season.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
