Springtime Indoor Air Quality Issues in Cincinnati

Properly Maintain Clean Air Within Your Home | Nelson Comfort

Springtime is a known allergy season, and many Cincinnati residents suffer indoors as well as outside this time of year. Inside your home or workplace, poor indoor air quality can worsen the allergy symptoms you feel, causing physical issues and even lost productivity. Improving air quality within presents a great payoff for all allergy sufferers indoors – here are some reliable solutions we recommend.

Air Cleaners & Ultraviolet Lights

High-efficiency whole-home air cleaners are one useful solution for households and businesses with allergy sufferers. These devices work with HVAC systems, pulling allergens from the indoor air supply as air circulates. Air cleaners are up to 99.97 percent effective in removing microscopic allergen particles, as well as other matter such as viruses and bacteria.

Ultraviolet light air purifiers are a type of air purification system which utilizes ultraviolet energy to neutralize airborne contaminants. Their UV energy scrambles microorganism DNA, which also prevents reproduction. UV light air purifiers are installed to work within a home or business’s HVAC systems, treating air as it circulates. This type of air purification system is completely safe for use in homes with humans and pets. Nelson Comfort offers PCO Clean Air ultraviolet light air purifiers, which are ideal for residential and light commercial use.

Upgrading Air Filters

Many Cincinnati homes and businesses are equipped with air filters that aren’t effective for allergen removal. Standard disposable filters rated below MERV 5 just aren’t able to capture the microscopic allergen particles which cause allergy symptoms, such as mold spores and smaller dust and pollen particles.

Upgrading to an air filter rated MERV 8 to MERV 13 will provide better control over allergens in your home. These filters are 20+ times more efficient than typical fiberglass filters, and create a healthier indoor environment for allergy sufferers.

If springtime allergens are making you miserable indoors, contact Nelson Comfort for relief. Our indoor air quality specialists will match you with the right solutions to rid your home or workplace of the allergens detracting from your health and wellbeing.
