Because of the respiratory problems that can result from high levels of humidity, pollen and other allergens, many people who are affected by asthma and allergies will stay indoors. The American Lung Association believes that air conditioning alone is an important way to control allergens. Air conditioning helps to reduce humidity while filtering out allergens such as pollen.
For very sensitive people, however, air-conditioned air can still be hazardous. In addition to pollen, there are many other particles that cause respiratory issues indoors. These include:
- Dust Mites
- Pet Dander
- Other Micro-Organisms
You can help to remove many of these particles by installing state-of-the-art filters to your heating and cooling system. This can help relieve and protect the symptoms of many who are extremely allergic or asthmatic.
