Temperatures are on the rise in Wisconsin and that means spring allergies are right around the corner. Instead of suffering through another season with itchy eyes, a runny nose, and scratchy throat, the Seider Heating, Plumbing & Electrical pros want you to know about three air quality products that can ease your symptoms, so you can enjoy the warmer weather.
Air purifiers are popular among area homeowners because they effectively remove airborne pollutants, like dirt, dust, pet dander, bacteria, and viruses. Our top pick is the Carrier® Infinity® air purifier. It features Captures and Kills technology™ that traps up to 95 percent of pathogens down to .30 microns in size, then emits an electrical charge that inactivates or kills them right on the spot. This purifying process takes place up to eight times an hour, so the air cycling through your home is clean and fresh for better overall comfort.
Ultraviolet (UV) Lights
Believe it or not, your air conditioner could be a major contributor to your allergy symptoms. Its cool, moist coil is the ideal place for mold and bacteria growth, and is difficult to clean since it’s inside your A/C. Fortunately, UV lights can be installed to kill this mold and bacteria before it makes its way into your air. They also help eliminate odors, improve airflow, and reduce clogging in condensate drain lines by keeping your coil clean. That means healthier air for your family and a cleaner system that operates more efficiently.
Good ventilation is vital to healthy indoor air. Because homes are built to be airtight, you may need a ventilator to improve circulation and air quality. Ventilators remove stale air from inside your home and replace it with fresh outdoor air. Added benefits include properly balanced humidity levels and filters that reduce airborne pollutants. You might wonder how this will affect your heating and cooling bills, but Carrier has it covered. Their energy-efficient models are specifically designed to adjust air temperature so you don’t waste any energy.
Bonus tip—air filters can remove some airborne pollutants, but you need to replace them regularly to make a difference. If you’re not sure which filter to use or how often to replace it, just ask our pros.
