How Does Indoor Air Quality Affect My Allergies?
Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Indoor air quality

Here’s what you can do when indoor air quality seems to decline during the spring.

You might not know it, but your indoor air quality is affecting your quality of life. Most of us assume our indoor air is cleaner than the outdoor air, but that is often far from the truth. Something you might notice, however, is that your allergies seem to get much worse in the spring, and they don’t always subside just because you’re indoors. Your allergies could be affected by your indoor air quality.

What’s Outside Must Come Inside

Even though we lock down our homes and seal them up tight to keep that nice, cool, air conditioned air in, we’re not keeping everything out. As we go about our daily lives, we track allergens inside from the outside.

Things like pollen, dust, and mold come into our homes on our shoes and clothing, and anytime we open a door or window. And because our homes are so climate controlled, it is likely those irritants will remain floating around in the indoor air, until you breathe it in. Gross, but true!

What’s Inside Stays Inside

Are you allergic to pet dander or pet hair? What about dust or cigarette smoke? Anytime these things are in your environment, they have the potential to cause you to have an allergic reaction. What’s more, as you move around your home and you move or disrupt those allergens, they become airborne again and again, making your allergies worse.

What’s This Got to Do with Indoor Air Quality?

Most allergens are airborne. It stands to reason that as the spring moves in, all of those things you’re sensitive to will start coming into your home, and this affects your indoor air quality and your quality of life.

What Do I Do?

The most effective way to improve your air quality is with an air filtration system. It can remove up to 99% of all irritants from the air in your home, making the air in your house cleaner and your allergies better.

For the top options on air filtration systems to improve the indoor air quality in your home, call All City Heat and Air at 704-545-2000.

My gas package system died on me this past February. I contacted All City Heat and Air for an estimate. The dispatcher was very nice and promptly scheduled an estimate the same day. The installation crew that came out (the next day after I had received the estimate!) was extremely polite and made sure to thoroughly clean up after they were finished.

I am glad that I stuck with this company (my friend had referred me since she had some work done by both Jeff and Ernie) because I feel that I would have been paying a lot more for a lot less with any of the other companies.

Jeff came out after the install was complete and took the time to answer my questions about operating the new thermostat and how to change my air filters, as well as giving me information on how to maintain my unit. Overall, it was an excellent experience. I would recommend to anyone!
