Allergy season in Alabama can be tough for those with respiratory issues or allergies. Indoor air quality (IAQ) products can help reduce allergy symptoms by removing allergens and pollutants from the air. Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air carries a wide variety of IAQ products to keep your indoor environment as healthy and pure as possible.
Here are some of the best IAQ products for allergy season in Alabama:
- Air purifiers are effective at removing allergens from the air. Look for a purifier with a HEPA filter, which can remove particles as small as 0.3 microns, including pollen, dust mites and pet dander. Some air purifiers also come with additional features like ionizers or UV-C lights, which can help kill bacteria and viruses.
- Alabama’s high humidity levels can exacerbate allergies by creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew. A dehumidifier can help reduce humidity levels and prevent mold growth. Look for a unit with a built-in humidistat to help maintain a healthy humidity level.
- HVAC filters can help capture allergens and pollutants before they enter your home. Look for a filter with a MERV rating between 8 and 12, which can capture a wide range of particles, including pollen, dust mites and mold spores. Be sure to change your filter regularly to maintain its effectiveness.
- Proper ventilation can help reduce indoor air pollutants and improve air quality. A whole-house ventilation system can help bring in fresh air from outside while removing stale air from inside. Look for a system with heat recovery or energy recovery to help reduce energy costs.
- Air quality monitors can help you track indoor air quality and alert you to potential issues. Some monitors can detect a wide range of pollutants, including carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and radon.
Overall, investing in IAQ products can help improve your indoor air quality and reduce allergy symptoms during allergy season in Alabama.
