ALLERGIES & INDOOR AIR QUALITY

allergies and indoor air quality

There is constant chatter about outdoor air pollution and what needs to be done to combat it. But where is the conversation about indoor air quality? 

We close up our homes to keep the temperature consistent and comfortable, but it restricts air movement. The result is higher levels of contaminants inside and poor indoor air quality. 

Dust and pollen are a constant threat to your allergies, but we can provide a solution. If you want to become healthier and more comfortable in your home, you should start by improving your indoor air quality. 

With high-quality indoor air products, like air filters and air purifiers, your home can begin to have clean, fresh air. At Sheldon’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we can help improve your indoor air quality to reduce allergy symptoms.     

IMPROVING INDOOR AIR QUALITY TO REDUCE ALLERGY SYMPTOMS 

Any effort you make to improve the air quality of your home will help alleviate your allergy symptoms. All of the irritants would be removed in the perfect world, but we know that’s not possible. However, there are a few things you can do to improve the air you breathe.

Here are some practical steps you can try to eliminate the contaminants in your home:

  • Regularly clean your home, including bedding and drapes 
  • Get rid of any indoor plants 
  • Change your HVAC air filters regularly 
  • Open the windows to let fresh air in 

THESE SMALL STEPS WILL GET YOU STARTED, BUT WE PROVIDE SERVICES THAT WILL HELP EVEN MORE. 

AIR PURIFICATION FOR ALLERGIES  

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air has approximately five times more contaminants than outdoor air because of poor circulation. However, installing an air purifier in your home can freshen up the stale air and relieve your allergy symptoms.

Family members with severe allergies will significantly benefit from installing an air purification system. Air purifiers for allergies have an ionization chamber that energizes pollutant particles, making them stick to the walls of the purifier. As the air circulates, these particles are slowly removed from your home and stored in the chamber.          

Air purification systems can capture the following pollutants: 

  • Pathogens, like spores, viruses, and bacteria
  • Irritants, like dust, pollen, and pet dander 
  • Lingering smells from cooking and cleaning supplies 
  • Smoke from wood and tobacco products  

Stop the allergy flare-ups caused by these contaminants. Contact Sheldon’s Heating & Air Conditioning to improve your indoor air quality to reduce allergy symptoms.  

AIR FILTERS FOR ALLERGIES  

When an air filter is installed, you’ll start breathing fewer contaminants, which is especially nice when a family member suffers from severe allergy symptoms. Air filters for allergies will make your home feel healthier and easier to clean because fewer particles will settle around your home.  

As a bonus, your HVAC system will work better when there is no layer of dust causing friction between the parts in the system.   

Advantages of Air Filtration 

Your living space will be much more enjoyable for everyone with expert air filter installation services. A few advantages you’ll begin to enjoy include:  

  • Smaller risk for airborne illnesses 
  • Prolonged life for your HVAC system
  • Better smelling home 
  • Effective climate control 

Investing in a quality air filtration system for your home is a crucial step towards decreasing the symptoms of your allergies. You and your family will see an improvement in your overall health for many years.
