Tips to Limit Allergic Reactions

  • Changing your air filter in the beginning of the season is a great way to keep pets and children safe from allergies. It can also increase your HVAC efficiency by nearly 35%!
  • You should also pay attention to the cleaning products that you are using. Your dog is always on or near the floor, and if you are using floor cleaning products that contain ammonia, this could be bad for your dog. All-Natural cleaners are a little more expensive, but they’re much safer for your pet.
  • If your dog isn’t the biggest eater, make sure their food is not just sitting in the bowl all day long. It will eventually start to collect dust from the air and become unhealthy for your dog to consume.
  • Watch your spray perfume and air fresheners! These products often contain allergens that can be harmful for your pet.

Air conditioning does not have to negatively affect your indoor air quality! In fact, it should do just the opposite. If you schedule a maintenance appointment with Levine & Sons, we’ll give you a FREE year of filters so you never have to worry about air quality again.
