The fall is upon us, bringing with it beautiful foliage, cooler temperatures, and pumpkin flavored food and beverages. However, also coming in with the new season are a variety of allergens unique to autumn.And while you can combat the runny nose and watery, itchy eyes of fall allergens with allergy medications, wouldn’t it be easier to protect yourself from seasonal allergens by bettering your indoor air quality?
How to Know You’re Having Indoor Air Quality Problems>>
Follow these tips to better your indoor air quality this fall and to keep your allergies at bay.
Tip #1: Clean Your Home Regularly
Let’s face it, who really likes cleaning? BUT, by vacuuming and dusting your home once a week, you can dramatically reduce the dust and allergens that rest in your home.
And when you clean, be sure to clean thoroughly. Vacuum your couch, wash your bedding, remove items from the bookshelf to catch all the dust, and dust the tops of your fans. If you have pets in your home, it might be a good idea to plan a spot-clean throughout the week, as well.
Tip #2: Change Your Air Filter Regularly
Your air filter is what catches dust, dander and other particles before they enter your house. If your air filter is not changed regularly, it gets full and is unable to catch particles before they enter your home.
These particles can then cause allergies and even asthma.

Tip #3: Install an Air Knight Purification System
If you’re changing your air filters regularly and cleaning often, and you are still experiencing indoor air quality problems, it might be time to invest in an air purification system.
An Air Knight Air Purification System combats toxins in your home and destroys any chemical vapors and odors as well. They also prevent the growth of mold and mildew by stopping moisture build-up, and this keeps your air fresh.
Currently, MTB Mechanical is running a special on Air Knight Purification Systems and you can take $100 off when you get an Air Knight installed on your HVAC unit.
