It’s Allergy Season! How Can Air Filtration Systems Help?

For allergy sufferers, air filtration is more than just a luxury. As beautiful as North Carolina’s scenery is, all those blooming flowers can create an extremely high pollen count, as does less beautiful plant life like ragweed. Allergens in the air can make life miserable for those who suffer from seasonal allergies, especially during the spring and early summer. A proper air filtration system can mark the first line of defense against those troublesome allergens.

Most air conditioning units use air filters to keep dust and debris from damaging the system. Those filters may keep the A/C running, but they don’t work to improve the indoor air quality in your home. For that, you need a more formal air filtration system, one specifically designed to remove airborne allergens. Mechanical and electronic filters screen out allergens, mites, pet dander and other unwanted particles, keeping your home clean and your allergies under control.

Air filtration systems possess a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR), which tells you how well they filter pollutants and allergens from the air. When shopping for a system, look for one with a high CADR rating; they process the air more quickly than those with a lower rating, keeping allergens out of your home. In addition, high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters remove at least 90% of all particles of a certain size from the air. You can compare the air filter’s efficiency rating to the HEPA standard to determine how well it does its job.

Regardless of the type of air filtration system you choose, you need one that addresses your particular type of allergy, and which makes indoor air quality as high as possible.
