How Your AC Can Help Relieve Your Allergies

April 7, 2021 | Blog

We all know that Texas allergies can be persistent and make our lives miserable for several months out of the year. Staying inside isn’t always an easy option, and it can become increasingly difficult to stay comfortable in your own home as allergens invade your space. Luckily, Air Clinic has the answers and solutions to your indoor air quality needs so that you can breathe easier.

What Allergens Are In Your Air?

Air is a natural highway for all kinds of pollutants, but most homeowners don’t realize that the walls of your home trap these contaminants and allow them to circulate in the breathable air. Here are some of the most common contaminants that may be causing allergic reactions in your home:

  • Dirt
  • Dust
  • Pollen spores
  • Pet dander
  • Candle soot
  • Viruses
  • Mold
  • Bacteria
  • Living microorganisms

How Can Your AC Reduce Allergies?

Your AC system is designed to do more than heat and cool your air. Air ‘conditioning’ refers to the unit’s ability to remove contaminants from your air before recycling it back into your home. There are a few specific things that AC systems can do that significantly affect the number of allergens in your air.


One of the main processes your air goes through to return to your home cooled is dehumidifying. Your unit absorbs and removes the moisture from your air in the process of cooling it. This helps in a number of ways, but the main purpose is to make sure your home isn’t humid and feeling the effects of moisture altering the perceived temperature.

Another great effect is that allergens in the air often attach themselves to water. By removing the moisture from the air, many of the allergens causing you problems are also removed from circulation.

Air Filtration

Every AC system filters some level of debris from the air. This is the dust and dirt you see when you change your air filters every few months. However, when there are more intense amounts of allergens in your air, or you are highly sensitive to them, it can seem like your AC barely contributes to your indoor air quality.

The key is to upgrade your air filters. With the technology and advancements these days there are a number of materials and sizes of air filters that are specially designed to filter all different types and sizes of air pollutants. An HVAC specialist would be happy to assess your indoor air and offer you the best air filtration and purification systems for your home.
