If you or someone in your home suffers from respiratory problems, you might have wondered why medicines don’t seem to be effective. As a matter of fact, nothing you try seems to provide a lasting solution. Quite often the culprit or even culprits could be lurking in your own home. Your HVAC system can often be the source of respiratory problems. There are, however, simple steps you can take to improve the indoor air quality for those with asthma and other respiratory problems.
Some of the most common asthma triggers — dander, pollen, and dust, are substances that your filter can remove from your indoor air. Filters today are excellent at removing even very tiny particles and bacteria, significantly improving air quality in your home. Your HVAC technician can help you to select the best type of filter for your home and HVAC system.
Better Humidity Control
Fayetteville can get pretty humid in the summer, and all that moisture in the air can make breathing more difficult for everyone, let alone those with asthma. Excess moisture presents the right conditions for mold to develop quickly. A dehumidifier is an additional step that is very effective in helping you to manage indoor humidity.
For a system that works on allergens, bacteria, viruses and even mold, air purifiers are an excellent choice. These systems are well worth the investment particularly if someone in the household is asthmatic.
The clue to poor air quality is sometimes a foul odor, but often air quality can be seriously compromised even with no accompanying odor. The presence of mold, dust and pollen are certainly signs, but for those you can neither see nor smell, your HVAC specialist is your best bet.
