Spring has sprung, the grass is riz….remember that childhood poem? Spring is my fav time of the year. Everything is coming alive – fresh & new – and a needed dose of natural vitamin D!
As much as I love spring, it brings a lot of sneezin’ and wheezin’. My home, Knoxville, Tennessee, is ranked the number one most challenging city to live in if you have allergies according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation’s 2012 ranking. Red, itchy eyes are not becoming to a fashionista.
My heating and air peeps at Modern Supply have a suggestion on fighting pollen and improving overall home air quality. Changing your HVAC air filters is a must-do! They should be changed every month. A dirty filter makes your system work harder and can potentially cause system problems. Yikes, air conditioner don’t fail me now!
Here’s a shocking statistic. EPA studies show that even in the smoggiest cities, the air inside most homes is usually at least ten times more polluted than the air outside. OMG how can this be?!
Energy efficient homes today are built as air-tight as possible. Super-duper for lower energy costs but traps airborne pollutants and bad guys such viruses, dust, dust mites, mold and mildew. These nasties are killin’ me!
Time to bring in the big guns!
There’s lotsa help to clear the air! Rheem Team germ fighters offer a line of indoor air quality products. It’s a dizzying list of stuff that can be added when installing or updating a Rheem system or other brands.
So don’t let your mascara run this season. Contact a Rheem contractor to do a spring air conditioning inspection and ask how to best improve your air quality. Don’t know one? You can find one through Rheem’s dealer locator.
And tell them….Millie sent you!
