California fall allergies indoor air quality
October 28, 2021

Do you have to deal with a stuffy nose every year when the seasons start to change? As the temperature cools, many homeowners experience a spike in allergy symptoms. Though uncomfortable, fall allergies are preventable!

The indoor air quality pros at Greiner are here to help you learn more about fall indoor air quality (IAQ), and teach you how you can breathe easier this season.

Possible Causes of Fall Indoor Allergies in Davis

While autumn allergies can sometimes be attributed to seasonal plant pollination, the source of allergies can also sometimes be closer to home. Homeowners tend to keep the windows closed more in fall than in the summer, shutting off your access to fresh air ventilation. This means that you’re breathing more of your own home’s air, which could be causing allergic reactions to dust, mold, or anything else impacting your IAQ. 

How to Boost Your Whole Home’s Fall IAQ

There are a few things you can do to improve your home’s indoor air quality and avoid prolonged suffering. Here are some tips that are often helpful to Vacaville homeowners!

Replace Your Filters

If you have a furnace, heat pump, or ductless mini split, you have at least one filter that needs  cleaning or replacing approximately every 4 - 8 weeks. We highly recommend frequent filter cleanings or replacements for homes with pets, allergy-sufferers, or those who are managing chronic lung conditions, like asthma. 

Plan Ahead with a Maintenance Value Plan

Greiner offers California homeowners preventative Maintenance Value Plans for air conditioning systems, heating systems, and even water heaters to help you extend the life of your systems and catch potential problems before they turn into a real (and expensive) emergency. 

Check on Your Ducts

The Greiner team can attest that poorly-functioning or dirty ductwork is not uncommon in Dixon homes. Ducts that aren’t properly sealed carrying your air are common culprits for allergy symptoms! There is some good news — a real professional team can help you do anything from making tweaks for more affordable improvements to a full system overhaul, so you can say goodbye to stubborn fall allergy symptoms.
