Most people look forward to spring and summer, with the longer days, warmer temperatures, and landscapes turning green everywhere. However, blooming trees, shrubs and grasses means allergies for many people, making the warmer months absolutely miserable with runny noses, itchy eyes, and constant sneezing.
Fortunately for allergy sufferers, air purification can help. In tandem with effective central air conditioning, air purification systems relieve allergy symptoms by clearing irritants out of the air.
Allergens and Other Irritants
There are several types of air pollutants that make their way into your home on a daily basis, whether from outside or from indoor substances. Common allergens that you’ll find in your home are:
- Pollen (a big one during spring and summer)
- Pet dander
- Mold spores
- Dust and dust mites
- Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) including formaldehyde
While you can prevent some of these allergens from entering your home with thorough cleaning, sealing the windows and doors, and keeping the air conditioning system in good repair, some will still likely make it into your home. This is where air purification systems can be beneficial.
Air Purifiers and Air Quality
One of the main parts of your home’s air purification system is the heating and cooling system itself. This system circulates air throughout your home, and filters are put in place to help purify the air as it’s distributed. An efficient HVAC system will generally cut down on the concentration of allergens and other pollutants in your home, so keeping it in good repair is a large part of keeping your allergy symptoms at bay.
High efficiency air purifiers can add to the effectiveness of a clean, well-maintained air conditioning system. These purifiers filter out allergens circulating through your home so you can breathe easier. The Climate Tech Air Conditioning and Heating’s air purification systems relieve allergy symptoms, allowing allergy sufferers to enjoy the warmer months symptom-free.
