Spring is usually the worst time for allergy sufferers – whether it’s pollen, dust, pet dander, mold or anything else – air purifiers and air filters can make all of the difference in the world for those affected. There are many different options for improving the quality of air in your home and combating allergies, including home HEPA air purifiers, HEPA filters, whole home air filters, and air ionizers.
Air cleaners can be very effective in removing allergy irritants that are as small as .01 microns from your home’s air. To put the size into perspective, that’s 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin! Air cleaners are rated based on Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) – the high the number, the more efficient the air cleaner is at removing pollutants like bacteria, mold, and pet dander. Our Air cleaners range from MERV 10 to MERV 15. However, if your family has relatively severe allergies or asthma, your best bet is likely our Whole House High Efficiency Particulate Arresting (HEPA) filtration systems.
Air pollution isn’t just exhaust or smoke from factories. Pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and dust mites can cause serious problems if you, your family, or friends have allergies. HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting) air purifiers can help trap these pollutants and bring some allergy relief. We also have air ionizers. This system uses three steps that have shown a 99% germicidal effectiveness (inactivation) within 24 hours for viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Continue reading
Anyone who suffers from asthma or allergies knows: the air we breathe is a precious commodity. If you’ve experienced tightness in your lungs, coughing, sneezing or any other respiratory issues, you’ve no doubt considered purchasing an air purifier to help combat – or at least alleviate – these symptoms. Today, we’re going to look at a few key facts that may convince you to invest in an air purifying system.
- Reduce the amount of allergens in your home
With fall and spring being the major seasons for allergies, it’s important to have a system in place to manage the amount of pollen, dust and dirt particles in your home. Placing an air purifier near your home’s frequently used entry points can essentially trap them, preventing them from spreading throughout your house and stop them from wreaking havoc on your eyes, throat and lungs.
- Stop pet dander in its tracks
We all adore our pets, however, these lovable companions carry dander that can cause a whole host of issues. A pet’s urine, saliva and skin cells all contain pet dander, a leading cause of allergies among the U.S. population. By using a HEPA air purifier, not only will you cut down on the amount of pet dander in the air, you’ll reduce the odors caused by your furry friend.
- Put an end to annoying food odors
Whether you’re a health-conscious fan of pan-cooked fish or a lover of deep fried comfort foods, you know that long after dinner is done, food odors can linger. And linger. And linger. To combat this, a highly-rated MERV air cleaner will help to purifier your home’s air, leaving your home feeling cleaner, fresher and more comfortable.
At Metzger’s Heating & Cooling of Kalmazoo, we feel like that’s the bottom line. A home is designed to be a relaxing place. If you’ve got invisible, airborne particles threatening your comfort, you should consider the advantages of a HEPA air purifier. We can help you reduce the impact of your allergies, lessen the effects of the symptoms of asthma, decrease the annoyances of household odors and, perhaps most importantly… we can help to make your home more comfortable.
