How Can You Reduce Home Allergens?
Updated: Jul 7
Each season can bring an onslaught of allergies. If you are affected by allergies, you may be surprised to learn your HVAC system could help alleviate some of your allergens inside your home. Find some TIPS below to help increase your Indoor Air Quality and alleviate allergies.
Change your 1” filters every 1-3 Months. This simple task will allow increased air flow and allow your filter to do its job better - trap particles before entering your system and air!
Upgrade to a Media Filter. A media filter is made of a deeply pleated, paper-like material designed to improve indoor air quality. Media Filters are given a “MERV” rating which determines how effective they are and which will work best with your system.
Install a Whole Home Air Purifier. Whole-house air purifiers work to remove harmful particulates from your home’s air such as mold, pet dander, airborne viruses, pollen, odors, and more. Some use Media Filters to get the job done like the AprilAire Home Purifiers. Others use new technology such as ionization like the iWave Home Purifier.
Get Your Ducts Cleaned. Your duct work can be home to dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, and even insects and rodents. If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies, asthma or other breathing issues, these contaminants can exacerbate their symptoms. Hire a professional to clean your ducts, then install your new filter or media filter!
