Allergy season usually starts in early April, just as spring is getting underway. When the temperature rises above 60°F and stays that way for three to four days, plants start to release more pollen into the air. And that’s when your allergy problems will start..
There’s not much you can do about the pollen count and other allergens in the air when you’re outside, aside from take special medications. However, you can help make your home a sanctuary against allergy problems thanks to a number of indoor air quality improvements. Our technicians are glad to help you out with this. Here are a few of the installations that we offer which can make your home as allergen-free as possible this spring—and many springs to come.
Air Filtration Systems
Mechanical air filters are one of the most affordable ways to lower the amount of pollutants moving through your home’s HVAC system. The standard filter that’s already on the system isn’t there to clean the air, but IAQ professionals can install a set of filters that will effectively trap particles down to 0.3 microns. This will get rid of the majority of allergy-causing contaminants: dust, pollen, dander, etc.
Sometimes mechanical air filters are insufficient to deal with air pollutants. Since more powerful air filters can potentially damage the effectiveness of the HVAC system because they cut off air flow, installing an electronic air filter can solve the problem. These devices target smaller pollutants, and they do not place any resistance against air flow. IAQ experts can find out the right combination of filters and purifiers to provide you with the best protection against allergens.
UV Air Purifiers
These ultraviolet lights integrated into your HVAC system will guard against the development of mold during the spring. Mold spores are among the most harmful air contaminants that can get into your home, but UV purifiers thoroughly—and safely—destroy them.
