Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

Combat Spring Allergies With a Variety of Indoor Air Quality Solutions! | PaschalCorp

If you’re one of the millions of Americans that suffer from seasonal allergies, you know the dread spring brings along with it. The warmer weather brings an assortment of outside pollens, dander and other allergy-inducing contaminants into your home. These tips can help you combat your spring allergies this season.

Clean Air Filter
Frequently changing your HVAC system’s air filter is a must throughout the year, but even more during the spring and summer months. While this helps the improve energy efficiency of your system, it also removes dust and dander from the air. If you suffer from allergies, switching to HEPA air filters could help you breathe easier. These filters are designed specifically for filtering pollen and dander out of the air. These filters collect more dander and pollen than regular filters do to help you breathe easier.

Sealing Drafts
If you have an older home, you might have small cracks around your windows and doors. These small openings allow pollen into your home. Replacing the weather stripping and caulking cracks around doors and windows will stop air leaks that let pollen in. Sealing these drafts will also improve the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling system. 

Duct Cleaning
The ducts and vents inside of your home collect dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold spores and other allergy-inducing contaminants. When left to collect within your ducts, these contaminants will continue to recirculate throughout the air in your home, especially if you have a newer home that is air tight for energy-efficiency. It’s recommended that you have your ducts cleaned every three to five years to improve the air quality within your home.
