3 Upgrades to Your HVAC System that Can Reduce Asthma Symptoms

September 22, 2017

You clean like crazy and work hard to keep pollen and germs outside where they belong, but sometimes your loved ones still have asthma flare-ups. The right HVAC upgrades, like UV lamps and HEPA filters, can reduce airborne asthma-triggers in your Pinehurst, NC home.

HEPA Air Filters

If you’re not changing your HVAC system’s air filters once every month, particulates can build up in the filters and spread throughout the house. Even if you do change them regularly, the filters you’re using might not be rated high enough on the MERV scale to capture everything that triggers asthma.

Ask your HVAC technician during your next maintenance appointment about the highest MERV rating your system can handle. If you think you need HEPA filters, your technician will be able to recommend system upgrades to accommodate these special filters.

Ventilators

If you have an asthma sufferer living in your home, you’ve probably got your house sealed up pretty tight against outdoor debris. But without proper ventilation, a sealed home can be an asthma problem; once particulates do end up inside, they can’t escape again and the air gets stale.

A ventilator like the energy recovery ventilators we offer, pulls air from the outdoors, cleans it, and sends it into your home. You get fresh air without letting in any pollen or other allergens.

UV Lamps

Mold and other debris can build up in the coils of your HVAC system; when this detritus gets dislodged, it makes its way through your vents and into your home. A UV lamp shines directly on the coils, killing the mold and bacteria that tries to grow there. Our UV lamps are “germicidal,” which should give you a great idea of what they do. Combined with regular HVAC maintenance, a UV lamp is a smart solution to improving your IAQ.

We have the solutions to your IAQ problems. Call us today to find out more about our IAQ products or to schedule HVAC maintenance.
