4 Comfort Products That Can Help Alleviate Allergies
Allergies always strike just as the weather starts to warm up. The sad reality is that when the mold and pollen counts are high, they can blow into your home and cause issues such as nasal stuffiness and throat irritation. In fact, our energy-efficient homes can create air pollution levels that are two to five times higher than outdoors.
The Four Ways Your HVAC System Fights Allergies
Fortunately, at Gross Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a solution. These HVAC products can help improve the air quality in your home and alleviate allergies and other respiratory illness symptoms:
- Air Purifiers—a Carrier® system with Captures & Kills™ technology removes up to 99 percent of all airborne impurities. Working in conjunction with your furnace and air conditioning system, whole-home air purifiers circulate and clean the air in your house up to eight times an hour.
- Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers—the ideal amount of humidity in your home is 35-50 percent. At less than 35 percent, nose bleeds, a dry cough, and frequent colds won’t help your allergies. However, when the humidity swings above 50 percent, mold and mildew will send your allergies skyrocketing. Our whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers will ensure your home stays in the sweet spot to help alleviate allergies and keep you healthier.
- UV Lights—used in hospitals, ultra-violet (UV) lights—the lights between x-rays and infrared on the light spectrum—emit a charge that targets the source of microbial growth within your HVAC system. They prevent the spread of contaminants and fight buildup of mold and bacteria. For people who are sensitive to mold, these lights can help prevent serious infections.
- Programmable Thermostats—new smart thermostats can tell you when to change your air filter or call for maintenance. Both options will ensure your HVAC system is fighting allergens with everything it’s got.
