Here we are, deep into spring, and the pollen is still blowing like a Georgia snow. If you have allergies or asthma, you're feeling it in your sinuses and lungs. And even if you don't, you can see it coating your car, feel it irritating your eyes, maybe notice it dusting up the furniture in your home.
Pollen levels will fall soon, along with the azalea blossoms, right around the time the temperatures climb into the 90s and the humidity turns the whole state into a steam room.
Summer is coming. Are you ready?
A well-maintained HVAC system can do a lot to ease the hard parts of Georgia springs and summers while helping you enjoy the rest. And it's not just about keeping things cooler.
Air filtration and purification systems reduce pollen, pollutants, and other irritants in your indoor air. They may help you breathe easier while keeping your furniture cleaner too.
And a well-calibrated system can balance cooling with dehumidification. It can keep your family comfortable while potentially lowering your energy bills too.
An inspection may also reveal problems before they become critical. It can prevent an untimely breakdown during the brutal days of summer. And it may extend the life of your system.
