Did you know that by having a well-running and efficient air conditioning system, asthma symptoms can be dramatically reduced? Adding high-quality filters and specialty air cleaners can help improve your home’s indoor air quality even further. Invest in your family’s health and comfort by making sure your HVAC system is running smoothly.

What Triggers Asthma in Your Home?

Asthma can be a serious illness, and an asthma attack can be terrifying for someone to experience or witness. Asthma causes constriction of the airway passages, and symptoms range from wheezing and coughing to difficulty breathing. Asthma attacks are often triggered by allergic reactions to things such as particulates from air pollution, pollen, animal dander, and even dust mites. If you have windows that are open in the house, you are allowing outside allergens to enter your home. By running a quality air conditioning system in your home, you can restrict outside airflow and reduce those nasty allergens.

Add Extra Indoor Air Quality Products to Your Home

HVAC systems that are well-maintained can relieve some asthma symptoms by helping to remove particles from the indoor air. When you add special indoor air quality products to your home, you can help to reduce allergens even more. Make sure you have high-quality, fine-meshed filters installed to capture small particles. Reusable air cleaners can eliminate almost all of the allergens that trigger asthma symptoms.

Humidity levels are equally important for the comfort of your Eastern Kentucky home. Humidifiers can help to control and maintain the proper amount of moisture in the home, bringing relief to those who suffer from asthma.
