|#3. Check Your Humidity Levels|
The Mayo Clinic reports that dry air may aggravate allergy and sinus conditions. Accordingly, they recommend maintaining humidity levels at between 30% and 50%.
Not sure what your humidity levels are? Allow us to perform an assessment to see if your business might benefit from one of our commercial humidifiers.
#4. Install the Right Size System
Improperly-sized systems prevent air from circulating properly. One that’s too small may leave you with dry, stuffy air that could wreak havoc on the sinuses. A unit that’s too big isn’t necessarily better, as it leaves more room for moisture to form.
The wrong size unit is not only bad for allergy sufferers, but you might also notice larger heating and cooling bills. In many cases, a new HVAC system could pay for itself in the form of reduced absenteeism, increased production, and greater energy efficiency. We recommend having an assessment performed if your unit is at least ten years old or your employees are complaining about poor indoor air quality.
#5. Keep Your System Maintained
Regular maintenance keeps your unit in great shape, while eliminating dust particles that might otherwise pose a health hazard. During a routine maintenance appointment, our technicians will clean your condenser, coils, and address any other problem areas. In doing so, you’ll also be extending the lifespan of your equipment and preventing costly breakdowns.
