If your family members have seasonal allergies or struggle with asthma attacks, improving your Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, home’s indoor air quality can help alleviate symptoms. From eliminating airborne allergens to reducing humidity levels, find out how the right air conditioner can improve the air quality in your home.
Eliminate Airborne Allergens
When you need powerful protection against airborne allergens, the Air Doctor Services team typically recommends investing in an air conditioner that works seamlessly with a whole-home air purifier. Choosing a cooling system with a Trane CleanEffects air cleaner gives your HVAC system the power to eliminate up to 99.8 percent of the airborne particles in your home. Whether dust, pet dander, pollen, fungus, or other contaminants trigger those allergy or asthma attacks, this HVAC add-on will help your family stay healthy and happy.
Reduce Humidity Levels
Our team also suggests investing in an air conditioner that can keep humidity levels in check, thereby reducing the presence of moisture-loving allergens like dust mites and biological growth. While many of the newest high-efficiency air conditioners are designed to keep humidity levels within a healthy range, you may want to consider adding on a whole-home dehumidifier for extra peace of mind. This HVAC add-on gives your air conditioner added power to reduce humidity levels, which can alleviate persistent allergy and asthma triggers.
Replace the HVAC Filter Regularly
No matter which air conditioner you choose, you’ll want to replace the HVAC filter regularly in order to improve indoor air quality. Look for a filter that’s sized accurately for your system, and ensure that it has the highest minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) rating that’s compatible with your system. Most residential air conditioners work best with filters that have MERV ratings between nine and 12, as these filters excel at removing allergens from your home’s air supply while also increasing your cooling system’s efficiency.
