How Your HVAC System Can Help You Control Your Allergies
If you suffer from allergies, then it’s important to know that your symptoms may be triggered by indoor air pollution. Studies have shown that indoor air can be anywhere from two to five times more polluted than the air outdoors! Fortunately, your HVAC system can help you keep your allergies under control. Below is a list of ways that your HVAC system can help reduce allergy symptoms.
Keep Mold Growth at Bay
When properly maintained, your HVAC system can help control moisture. Excessive moisture can lead to mold growth, which can be a major trigger for allergy symptoms. It is also important for you to have the air ducts cleaned on a regular basis, which will assist in preventing mold from developing. Mold can not only trigger allergies, but it can even cause a very unpleasant odor to develop in your home and cause other serious health issues to develop.
Stop Allergens From Circulating
Pet dander, cockroach droppings, dust mites and pollen are just a few of the many allergens that may be circulating throughout your home. Breathing in those allergies can cause you to experience an allergic reaction. Your HVAC system’s filter can trap those allergens and prevent them from circulating throughout your home. For the best allergy-fighting results, make sure that your air conditioner’s filter is changed on a regular basis.
HVAC technology has come a long way. Today, UV lights can even be installed within the air handler of your system, which will help fight germs. In fact, UV light technology can zap up to 99 percent of germs with the air handler before they can be dispersed throughout your home.
