HVAC Components to Help Lessen Allergies in the Home

Little boy suffering from allergies

Indoor air quality is always important, but even more so when you or other residents in the home suffer from allergies. Allergies and other respiratory issues can be exacerbated by the air contaminants and pollution that tend to exist in the air inside a home. However, there are certain HVAC components you can incorporate into your current system to prevent aggravating allergies and illness.

Indoor Air Quality: What Are the Risks?

Many of our customers are surprised to learn the air inside their home is less healthy than outdoor air. Why is this? Because we tend to keep our homes closed up for climate control purposes—sealing in the cool air during the summer and warm air during the winter. As we strive to keep the house closed up tight, we also seal in various contaminants including: pollen, dust, pet hair and dander, smoke, household cleaner chemicals and emissions, and mold or mildew.

This indoor air pollution can induce allergies or make them worse, bringing on symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, runny nose, itchy eyes, wheezing, skin issues, migraines, and even chronic fatigue.

Your HVAC Can Help You Breathe Easier

While it is certainly disconcerting to realize how poor indoor air quality can impact allergies and other health issues, you don’t have to feel powerless in the situation. The right heating and cooling company can help you find HVAC components designed to improve the air quality in your home. With the right products, you and your loved ones can breathe easier and get some relief from these unpleasant symptoms.

Consider these two simple HVAC components that can make a positive difference in your indoor air quality:
High Quality Air Filters:

While the homeowner is always looking for a way to save money on HVAC costs, going cheap with the air filter when you are dealing with allergies is not a good idea. By spending more money on filters, you can get the highest quality air filter that will clean more allergy-inducing contaminants from the air.

Air Purification System:

An air purification system or add-on component to your HVAC is one way to quickly clean the air in your home. Purifiers combine a high quality air filter with powerful UV lighting to both capture and destroy those contaminants polluting your indoor air.
