April showers may bring May flowers, but in Pooler, Richmond Hill, Savannah, and other surrounding areas in Georgia, homeowners know that April showers bring spring pollen and allergies. Did you know that your HVAC system plays a crucial role in your indoor air quality and can help relieve allergies? Before loading up on allergy medicine and eye drops, prioritize the ace up your sleeve- your HVAC system. Here are some ways a well-maintained and functioning HVAC system can benefit you and your family and aid in relieving allergies:
1. Reduces Common Allergens in the Air
One of the most significant benefits of having a well-maintained HVAC system is that it helps to reduce allergens in the air. Indoor air pollution comes from various sources- pet dander, mold, dust mites, pollen, etc. Your HVAC system’s air filter is designed to trap these allergens and other airborne particles that can trigger allergies. Over time, these filters can become clogged, reducing their effectiveness, and can cause you to experience allergic reactions. Regular maintenance of your HVAC system, including changing your air filter regularly when needed, can help keep your air clean and free of allergens.
2. Controls Humidity and Purifies Air
Another way your HVAC system can help relieve allergies is by controlling humidity levels in your home. High humidity, which is common in Georgia, can lead to the growth of mold and dust mites, both of which can trigger allergies. Your HVAC system can regulate the humidity levels in your home, helping to prevent the growth of these allergens. In addition to humidity control, adding an air purifier is the best way to trap the allergens your HVAC can’t handle alone. REME HALO® Purifiers are great for anyone suffering severe allergies, because it can improve the entire home’s air quality, helping everyone in the family breathe easier and cleaner.
3. Prevents Airborne Irritants
Your HVAC system also plays a role in preventing airborne irritants from entering your home. If your system is functioning properly and the air ducts are clean, it can help prevent outdoor pollutants like smoke, dust, and other irritants from entering your home. This is especially important if you or someone in your family suffers from respiratory issues like asthma or allergies. When air circulates throughout the ducts, it can pick up pollutants and contaminate the air, causing discomfort for all family members. By keeping your system clean, you can maintain pure air quality in your home.
4. Improves Air Circulation
Lastly, a well-maintained HVAC system helps improve air circulation throughout your home. Proper air circulation helps to prevent allergens from settling in one place, which can reduce the likelihood of an allergy flare-up. It also helps to distribute clean air throughout your home, ensuring that every room has fresh, clean air. Indoor Climate Experts can take it a step further with the latest technology to your unit. By adding a GPS ionization device, smaller particulates in the air will stick together forming larger particles that the air filter can easily remove thus purifying your home’s air. This latest technology is used today in medical offices and hospitals, and is now available for your home and office.
In conclusion, it is important to have a well and properly-maintained HVAC system in order to help relieve allergies. By reducing airborne allergens, controlling humidity levels, preventing airborne irritants, and improving air circulation, your HVAC system can make a significant difference in the indoor air quality of your home.
