Nip spring allergies in the bud with Whole House Indoor Air Quality Systems from Cubby Oil

allergiesThe arrival of spring means different things to different people: for snowbirds, it means a return home; for baseball fans, it means a return to the diamond. But for allergy sufferers, spring means something a little less fun: lots of sniffling, sneezing, and discomfort.

Hiding indoors doesn’t do much to ease that suffering: in fact, in many homes, the problem gets worse. That’s because the air in your home can contain three to five times more pollutants (or significantly more) than outdoor air – including trapped allergens like mold, pet dander, mildew, cigarette smoke, and other microorganisms.

So what can you do to get some relief this spring?

Apart from making better lifestyle choices, one of the best ways to keep your family healthy and breathing easily is to install one or more whole-house Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) systems to support your home HVAC system.

Some Indoor Air Quality options available for your Massachusetts home include:

  • Whole house air cleaners – High-efficiency media air cleaners remove up to 98 times more particles than a standard one-inch filter. Your air will be cleaner throughout your home and your heating AND cooling system will run more efficiently.
  • Whole house humidifiers – Overly dry winter air can cause problems ranging from breathing difficulties to furniture damage. A whole house humidifier keeps humidity at healthy levels throughout your home.
  • Ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light filter systems – UV lights can catch particles that slip right through your air cleaners, killing most airborne bacteria and as well as airborne mold spores.
  • Ventilation Systems – Today’s airtight homes are designed to keep heated or cooled air in, which is great for efficiency, but not so great for air quality: toxins from cleaners, furniture, and other household products along with pet dander and other allergens get trapped without a little help from moving air. That’s where a ventilating system – also known as an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) or Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) – comes in. Ventilators exchange stale, polluted indoor air with fresh, clean outdoor air so you’ll breathe easier all year long.

Alone or together, these IAQ solutions will help your family stay healthy and sniffle-free this spring, and for many years to come.
