Texas Air Quality Tips for the Spring


Ah, springtime in Texas! It just might be the most beautiful time of the year. The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are blooming, the pollen is blowing around, the allergies are starting to act up… If you’ve got concerns about your air quality, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

There are a wide variety of things you can do to ease your allergies, breathe easier, and feel healthier this year than you have during previous allergy seasons. Let us share some of our best tips for improving your indoor air quality during this Texas springtime.

Air Conditioner Maintenance

During AC maintenance, your technician will thoroughly clean all parts of the system. This improves the efficiency and effectiveness of your air conditioner and allows the technician to see all the components in detail and easily spot any problems. But it will also improve your indoor air quality!

Removing dust from your AC unit means that when you turn it on for that first hot day, you won’t be blowing all that mess—which probably includes pollen and pet dander—out your vents and into the air you breathe. Having the condensate pan and drainage lines cleaned will eliminate mildew and bacteria that could otherwise cause or worsen respiratory issues.

Duct Inspection

It’s easy to forget about your ductwork. Out of sight, out of mind! But problems with ducts can really impact your air quality. Having them inspected can help you determine whether there’s something wrong that needs to be addressed. Ducts can be cleaned if they’re dirty, or sealed if they’re cracked or torn.

Dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, and other irritants can accumulate inside ductwork. Don’t try to clean in there yourself, or you could cause damage and make things worse! It takes specific tools and specialized training to safely and effectively clean ductwork.

If ducts have been damaged, or have deteriorated over time, they could be sucking in air from the space around them. Since ducts often go through extremely dusty places like within walls or in attics and crawl spaces, this means all kinds of mess—sawdust, insulation fibers, rodent droppings, and more—could be contaminating your air. 

Air Purifier Services

A UV air purifier is the best way to dramatically improve your air quality. Using ultraviolet light, these amazing systems destroy biological pathogens. Mold spores, bacteria, viruses and many other nasty microscopic things can be sanitized from your air, leaving you breathing more freely and feeling your best. 

These systems reduce allergy symptoms and asthma attacks, improve respiratory wellness, cut down on work days lost to illness, and even reduce the likelihood of headaches. With a UV air purifier in Levelland, TX, you’ll sleep better at night and have more energy during the day, all thanks to the purifying power of light. 

If you want to have the best possible springtime, don’t forget about AC maintenance, and seriously consider having your ducts inspected. Whether you need air purifier installation, air filter replacement, or repair, we’ve got you covered.
