Have you ever noticed that, when you turn on your air conditioning and heating systems, your allergy symptoms tend to get worse? Many people have, and even if this isn’t a regular occurrence for you, you should know that an HVAC system might be responsible for worsening recurrent allergies.
Your air conditioning system doesn’t just produce cool air. It pulls air in from around your home and then cools it by removing heat. When it pulls in air through the register in the ceiling or on the wall, it can pull in a number of contaminants as well.
But I Can Change the Filter Myself
Somewhere behind the return grille is a filter that traps particles in the air. This helps to improve your air quality and protect your AC system from damage. Changing it is necessary for the efficiency of your AC system and may help to improve the air quality in your home.
However, the filter might not do a sufficient enough job of trapping particles and making your air cleaner. Often, the smallest of the particles are the most harmful to your health, and your filter may only be able to trap only those slightly larger than bacteria, viruses, and other harmful contaminants. You’ll need another system for that.
How Can an Additional System Help
Adding on another system to your home may help alleviate allergies. An air filtration system in addition to your air filter may be able to catch many more of the particles in the air of your home so that you can breathe a little easier.
We recommend whole-home air purifiers that give particles an electrical charge, allowing them to cling to a surface of the opposite charge, and this is often more effective than a standard media filter. Bryant is our preferred air purifier, a precision air quality system that is highly effective at getting rid of the majority of the contaminants in your air.
