According to the medical experts at MedlinePlus, indoor allergies can result from exposure to dust mites, pollen, mold or pet dander. These allergens can sometimes trigger asthma attacks and other respiratory problems for vulnerable individuals. Here are three proven strategies to help you allergy-proof and improve the air quality inside your Savannah, Georgia, home.
Invest in an Air Purifier
Air purifiers can provide added help in removing allergens from indoor air. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency offers information on three basic types of air purifiers:
- Particle removal systems include filters and electrostatic systems that attract and trap particulate matter before it can cause problems inside your home.
- Gas-phase pollutant control systems use absorbent materials to soak up gases that could affect indoor air quality.
- Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation cleaners use the power of UV light to destroy biological and gaseous pollutants. These air cleaners should be used in conjunction with filtration systems for the best results.
Working with a qualified air conditioning contractor can ensure that you receive the best and most practical solutions for improving the quality of your indoor air.
Upgrade Your Air Filters
The right air filters can make a real impact on your indoor air quality. Working with a reputable company to maintain your HVAC system can also provide you with expert guidance on the right air filters. In some cases, an advanced filtration system may provide added comfort and reduced pollutants and particulate matter for your home and your family.
Increasing the amount of fresh air in your home by installing an advanced ventilation system can help to disperse unwanted chemicals and pollutants inside your home. Modern home ventilators work with filtration and purification systems to ensure the best and healthiest environment for you and your family.
