Which IAQ Products Are Best for Allergy Season?
Spring allergies can be a major issue for many people in the Waterford, Michigan area. It’s good to know there are several indoor air quality (IAQ) products that are extremely helpful to alleviate symptoms. Here are some of the best indoor air quality products recommended by Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing for spring allergy sufferers:
- An air purifier is a device that removes pollutants from the air. It can be particularly useful during allergy season as it can remove allergens like pollen, dust and pet dander from the air. Look for an air purifier with a HEPA filter, as it can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns.
- Your HVAC system likely has a filter that needs to be changed regularly to ensure air flows freely and particulates can be removed. Upgrading to a high-efficiency filter can help capture more pollutants and allergens, just be sure the rating you choose is compatible with your HVAC system.
- High humidity levels can exacerbate allergies by creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew. A dehumidifier can help control humidity levels and prevent the growth of these allergens.
- On the other hand, low humidity levels can also be problematic for allergy sufferers. A humidifier can add moisture to the air and soothe dry nasal passages and throats.
- Running your air conditioner can help remove excess moisture from the air and lower humidity levels. It can also help filter out allergens like pollen.
- UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms in the air. This can be particularly helpful during allergy season as it can reduce the number of germs and allergens in the air.
- Portable air cleaners can be particularly helpful in spaces where you spend a lot of time, like your bedroom or office. Look for one with a HEPA filter and a high CADR (clean air delivery rate).
When choosing indoor air quality products for spring allergies, it’s important to consider your specific needs and budget. With the right products, you can help reduce your exposure to allergens and breathe easier during allergy season.
