Best Indoor Air Quality Products - Get Rid Of Spring Allergies

Spring allergies can make it difficult to enjoy the beauty of the season. While there are many remedies available, indoor air quality products can make a significant difference in reducing allergy symptoms. Merts Heating & Air Conditioning has been helping Steger, Illinois residents breathe easier since 1952. We can help you, too!

Here are some of the best indoor air quality products recommended by Merts to help alleviate your spring allergy symptoms:

  • Air purifiers can filter out airborne allergens such as pollen, dust and pet dander. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters can trap particles as small as 0.3 microns, making them the best choice for allergy sufferers.
  • High humidity levels can lead to mold growth, which can trigger or magnify the effects of allergies. Installing a dehumidifier can reduce humidity levels in the air, making it difficult for mold to grow.
  • By regularly changing the HVAC filter, you can improve indoor air quality. HEPA filters are recommended for allergy sufferers, but they may not be compatible with all HVAC systems. A MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating of 11 or higher is also recommended to get the best reduction in allergens, overall.
  • Ultraviolet (UV) air purifiers can kill bacteria and viruses that may cause allergies. They work by emitting UV-C light, which damages the DNA of microorganisms, rendering them harmless.
  • Air quality monitors can measure indoor air quality, including temperature, humidity and pollutant levels and can help allergy sufferers understand when they need to take action to improve indoor air quality.
  • Air ducts can harbor dust, mold and other harmful allergens. Having your ducts professionally cleaned can improve indoor air quality and reduce allergy symptoms.

Here’s a fun fact: Certain plants, such as spider plants, aloe vera and snake plants, can even purify the air by removing harmful pollutants. This is an easy solution that may help those suffering with spring allergy symptoms.

In conclusion, there are many indoor air quality products available that can be beneficial for those suffering from spring allergies.
