3 Home Upgrades to Alleviate Asthma Symptoms

While cleaning is an easy way to help reduce allergies and asthma symptoms in your Conway, Arkansas, home, sometimes the pollen, dander, and outdoor pollutants cannot be completely removed with these simple tasks. If you have an asthma sufferer in your home and are looking for ways to improve your indoor air quality — also known as IAQ — consider the home upgrades listed below.

High-Quality Air Filters and Air Purifiers

Changing and maintaining your system’s air filter is a critical component of creating the best air quality you can in your home. If you have a high amount of dust, dander, or pollen in your home, you should consider using a filter with the highest MERV rating that is allowed for your HVAC system. If your system isn’t rated for a high filter, consider installing an air purifier inline with your system.  With an air purifier, you will be able to trap many of the microscopic pollutants from circulating through the air supply in your home.

Ventilators

Asthma allergies can act up when your home is closed off or sealed up, as pollutants will become trapped in the air supply. One of the essential parts of maintaining good IAQ is having proper airflow in your home to remove the stagnant air and replace it with fresh air. A ventilator will pull fresh air from the outside, clean it from pollutants, and send it into your home.

Insulation

Poor-quality insulation may not be at the forefront of your mind when you think of asthma triggers. Wet insulation or insulation infested with rodents can produce biological growth and other toxins that can get into your home through cracks and leaks in the ductwork, creating poorer air quality. Additionally, areas, where insulation is worn away, can allow contaminants and pollutants to get into your HVAC from the outdoors and out through the vents in your home.

If you have an asthma sufferer in your home, don’t let poor air supply cause them to suffer from worsening systems. Find out which HVAC add-ons can improve the IAQ in your home and lessen your loved one’s asthma symptoms by contacting Freyaldenhoven Heating and Cooling at (501) 764-9077 today to find what solutions we have to offer.
