Does My Home Make Spring Allergies Worse?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), your indoor air can actually be two to five times more polluted than outside air. And in the spring, with flowers and plants blooming, nature’s allergy triggers can get inside and potentially make things worse. Fortunately, systems like air ventilators and purifiers can help get rid of those pollutants and more, including dust and dirt stuck in your carpets or vents. How? Read on to find out.
How Do Air Ventilators Work?
Air ventilators take your stale, recirculated indoor air and replace it with fresh air from outside. And the best part—it does so while filtering out airborne contaminants and allergens. The key lies in the system’s filter, which traps dust, dirt, pollen, mold, and other irritants before they can affect whoever is inside. The higher the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values), the better the filtration.
Are There Any Other Benefits of Ventilators?
On top of delivering health benefits, air ventilators simply make your home’s air fresher. If you do a lot of cooking or have pets, you won’t have to worry about poor indoor air quality. Plus, these systems are quiet, energy-efficient, and can even help lower your home’s humidity levels when the weather turns warm.
Air ventilators aren’t a total replacement for helping with spring allergies, but when used along with regular vacuuming and cleaning, they are great in spring and year-round.
