No matter the season, airborne contaminants in your Swannanoa, North Carolina, home can compromise your health and trigger allergy attacks. Poor indoor air can also affect how efficiently your HVAC system performs. Learn more about how your family can breathe easier with these three indoor air quality treatments.
Humidification and Dehumidification
Whether your indoor air does not have enough moisture or it has far too much, humidification and dehumidification services can significantly improve your indoor air quality. In most homes, dry air can lead to respiratory issues, cause annoying and painful static electricity, and damage your wood furniture. In contrast, excessively moist air can allow bacteria, mold, and dust mites to thrive, contributing to allergy and asthma attacks. Whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers work with your existing HVAC system to establish a comfortable and healthy level of humidity throughout the home.
UV Light Air Purification
When the problem lies within the HVAC system itself, ultraviolet (UV) light air purification offers a solution. Mold and bacteria can grow on the HVAC system’s indoor coil, which causes these contaminants to feed directly into your home’s air supply. UV lamps target mold and bacteria growth before they have the opportunity to circulate through the air or trigger allergy attacks. These devices can also work to keep your HVAC system running efficiently.
Ducts make up a large part of your HVAC system, so it’s no surprise that they can be the biggest contributors to unhealthy air. Even with frequent air filter changes, your home’s ducts can accumulate dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold, and mildew. If you or your family members suffer from allergies or asthma, dirty ducts are bad news. Duct cleaning attacks the problem at the source, eliminating dirt, pollen, mold, and dust mites. With clean ducts, your family can breathe easier, experience fewer allergy attacks, and enjoy fresh air with each HVAC cycle.
