3 Ways Your HVAC System Can Reduce Allergens
Allergy suffers can agree that poor air quality in the home is a nightmare. Although it might be possible to avoid all indoor allergens, there are some very simple was to reduce the allergens in your home. And as the title suggests, they are with the help of your HVAC system.
Choose a High Quality HVAC Filter
Not every filter is made equally. That’s why choosing the right HVAC filter is essential for quality indoor air quality. For the best air quality, choose a filter with a MERV 10 rating or higher. These filters help trap more microscopic particles which means that fewer particles are released into the air.
