Home Installations To Relieve Your Allergy Symptoms

The most frustrating time of year is allergy season. Many people know what it feels like to be bothered with itching, sniffling, watery eyes, and sneezing around the clock. Numerous allergy medications and remedies are used daily to try to alleviate these symptoms. Unfortunately, when these allergens are circulating in your home, it is very difficult to get rid of allergy symptoms.

Therefore, the quality of the air inside your home is of utmost importance; if allergens are circulating inside, your troublesome symptoms may not go away easily. As a matter of fact, sometimes home air quality is inferior to the quality of the outdoor air. This is why certain home installations are important to utilize in order to minimize and prevent allergy flare ups while at home. There are several options available to improve home air quality.

A Valuable Air Conditioner

In order to control particulate flow throughout your home, it is important to manage the airflow appropriately. If a quality air conditioner is installed in the correct manner and is the right dimensions, home air quality can improve dramatically. It is also important to change the filter on a regular basis.
Proper installation is important because if it is done incorrectly, the air conditioner will not be able to manage the amount of air that it is designed for. In other words, you will not get the appropriate air filtration required for clean air throughout your home. Trained professionals should be used for this job in order to ensure that your home is receiving the cleanest air possible.

Use of a Dehumidifier

Although most air conditioners are considered dehumidifiers as well, they do not provide the level of adjustment to the quality of air that dehumidifiers do. These are available as portable devices, but keeping one with the air conditioner is recommended. This is because a dehumidifier that works along with the cooling equipment will remove moisture from the air throughout the entire home.
This relieves allergy symptoms by allowing for less mold spores and particulates to be carried around in moist air. In addition, air conditioning systems typically carry mold and mildew as they age. This carries pollutants and allergens directly in your home and result in allergy symptoms among respiration.

Air Cleaning via UV light

Simply stated, these UV light air cleaning systems utilize a bulb that emits ultraviolet rays, which clean the air in a natural manner. It is known that UV light has the ability to sterilize air and destroy many germs and bacteria. This makes the air safer to breather in, as it is cleaner and void of pathogens such as bacteria. As a matter of fact, UV lights are used in hospitals and laboratories to sterilize equipment and air.

Air Purifiers or Air Filtration Systems

This may be confused with the air filter that is used in a home’s cooling system. However, this is separate. An air filtration system has a larger surface area, which allows it to capture more particulate and matter that should not belong in clean air. This makes the air more breathable and improves allergy symptoms.

Likewise, use of an air purifier may offer the proper air quality for your home. A purifier works by using ionization technology in order to give a charge to particles in the air. This allows the charged particles to cling to surfaces with the opposite charge, preventing them from being carried in the air and breathed in. Therefore, this method can also alleviate allergy symptoms.
