Call Your Indianapolis Heating and Cooling Experts to Beat Spring Allergies

By: Homesense  |  March 13, 2019

All around Indy, flowers, trees, and even weeds are about to bloom. While a nice change from bleak winter weather, the downside is rising pollen counts that trigger allergies. One way to control allergy symptoms in your home begins with a clean Indianapolis heating and cooling system.

Reduce Allergens Indoors

Unfortunately, Indianapolis ranks poorly for air quality. Our city ranks 13th for the highest level of particle pollution throughout the year, compared to other major cities throughout the country.

In fact, Marion county has an F rating from the American Lung Association for both high particle pollution and high ozone days. Indiana ranked 44th out of all U.S. states for air quality as of 2017.

Environmental allergens like pollen and mold aren’t only a problem outdoors. They also make their way into your home. Through opened windows, tracked in on clothing and shoes – it’s unavoidable. Given our area’s high pollution levels, it’s of the utmost importance homeowners take measures to gain cleaner indoor air.

Once these allergens are in your home, they spread. How? Through your Indianapolis heating and cooling system. Air circulates throughout your living areas while the HVAC system runs. Circulating air moves allergens into all areas, where they affect family members sensitive to them.

The average American spends 90 percent of their time indoors, and according to the EPA, indoor air is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. If you suffer from spring allergies, take steps to remove allergens from your home.

Those with respiratory or cardiac conditions also find allergens and poor air quality aggravates their situation. Air quality improvements make it easier to be comfortable and healthy.

How? Keep Your Indianapolis Heating and Cooling System Clean

Homesense Heating and Cooling helps homeowners limit allergen exposure indoors with a few key Indianapolis heating and cooling services.

Indianapolis Heating and Cooling Maintenance

Keep your Indianapolis heating and cooling system cleaner with preventative maintenance. As allergens circulate through your system, they settle within HVAC system chambers and ducts. As air continues to flow, allergens are picked back up and redistributed.

Remove accumulation of allergens, dust, dirt, and other particulates from your Indianapolis heating and cooling equipment during a preventative maintenance tune-up.

When removed from the system, these allergens are no longer able to move back into your living spaces and affect your family. If you’ve never had duct cleaning in your home, we can help there too!

We recommend duct cleaning, especially if you’ve recently completed a home construction project or moved into a new home. Duct cleaning helps your indoor air quality as well as reduces the debris your HVAC system must push through the furnace and evaporator coil.

Whole-Home Air Purifiers

Whole-home air purifiers provide excellent defense against indoor allergens when used with your Indianapolis heating and cooling system. Our media air cleaners are up to 99 percent effective for the removal of allergens and other contaminants as small as 0.3 microns.

A whole-home air purifier removes allergens with the added benefit of a cleaner Indianapolis heating and cooling system. With more allergens removed, there are less moving through your equipment.

This results in fewer accumulations on components, so your heating and cooling equipment is cleaner. Your indoor living areas stay cleaner, too!

Reme Halo Air Purifier

The Reme Halo is one of the Homesense team’s favorite air purifiers to recommend to beat spring allergens. The award-winning air purifier is installed in-duct, usually above your evaporator coil, so it can treat air after it’s been conditioned by the furnace or air conditioner.

The Reme Halo kills up to 99 percent of bacteria, mold and viruses. It also helps almost eliminate common household odors. Coupled with an HVAC maintenance and duct cleaning, the Reme Halo will almost assure your home becomes an oasis from spring allergens.
