Things to install to help with allergy symptoms

Things to install to help with allergy symptoms – Warm weather is never good for people with allergies. There are a lot of sneezing and sniffing going around especially when the weather goes between warm and cold.

Indoor air quality is something that everyone should watch out for if someone in the house has allergies. This will make a difference with some of the below suggestions that we have for you!

 

A quality air conditioner

To help with the flow of particles in the house, you must control the air flow. A good air con unit will do that for you if it is of the right size and placed in a right position with filters changed every few months.

The air condition that is not the right size might end up not pulling enough air in for the use.

And that means you’re not getting the level of filtration your home needs.

Make sure your system is properly installed by calling in trained professionals only, and ask about installing a filter with a high MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) so that you start getting cleaner air right away.

Dehumidifier

Most air conditioners are dehumidifiers, to an extent, but they cannot do the job as smoothly as a dehumidifier. This installation is available as a portable unit, but we recommend keeping one within your air conditioning system. A whole-house dehumidifier works along with your cooling equipment to remove moisture from the air.

How can this help to relieve your allergy symptoms? Less moisture in the air means fewer mold spores. Your air conditioning system is likely to develop mold and mildew over time, moving pollutants straight into your living space, so it’s a good investment to make in such a humid climate.

UV light air cleaning

A UV light air cleaning system is fairly simple: it’s a bulb of ultraviolet light that cleans the air naturally. Ultraviolet light is able to kill off and sterilize germs like bacteria and viruses. When germs are unable to reproduce, they are safe to breathe in. As air moves through your HVAC system and past the UV light, it is sterilized, like the air in hospitals and research laboratories.

Air filtration systems and air purifiers

An air filtration system is separate from your air filter. You’ll still need to change your filter regularly and replace the filtration media from time to time. But it has a larger surface area to catch more of the particulate that you’d like out of your airflow.

Alternatively, an electronic air cleaner could offer the purification you need. This system is innovative in that it poses no risk of blocking air from moving into your home. Rather, it uses ionization to give particles a charge. Then, they can cling to a surface with the opposite charge. Ask your technician which system is right for your home!
