Having allergies is easy, but preventing it seems impossible. Taking antihistamine medication is a temporary solution to a long-term problem, too. One of the most effective options is to contact an air conditioning company that specializes in removing the problem of allergies.
Replace Air Conditioner Filters
Air conditioning units contain filters that block the entry of dirt, dust, mold spores and debris. Most nets are designed to collect dust, pollen and other known allergens. Bacteria are microscopic, but filters are also effective at blocking the entry of some microorganisms.
To work properly, air conditioners must have the filters replaced regularly. On most machines, the filter should be replaced once a year, but for A/C units that run year round, it may be twice a year. Without a new, clean filter, the air conditioner becomes less effective as more particles build up.
Install Air Purifiers
An air conditioning technician can install a new air conditioner, heater or humidifier. An A/C cools the air, and a dehumidifier reduces the moisture content. To clear out unhealthy particles in the air, an air purifier is needed. Common air pollutants are removed, such as dust, pollen, smoke and toxic gases.
Like with A/C units, a professional can help you to choose the right air purifier to use based on your budget and usage needs. Purifiers are made in different sizes with some being small and portable, while others are large and installed as part of your HVAC system. A professional helps to choose among different technologies that vary from air filters to ultraviolet lamps.
Recommended Other Products
An air conditioning company has access to a wide range of products. Consumers may already know about air sanitizers, air ionisers or ozone generators. Although the levels of efficiency vary, consumers are free to buy a device and test it out at home. An air sanitizer works as a permanent disinfection of viruses, fungi and bacteria. An ioniser generates negative ions in the air, and an ozone generator creates ozone based on the room temperature.
Nearly everyone has minor to severe allergic reactions to substances in the environment. In the air, allergens are common and can appear anywhere from parks to homes. When people think of solutions, they rarely think of getting help from an air conditioning technician. They assume that A/C experts only specialize in heating and cooling.
