Cleaner Indoor Air, Better Health
Battling spring allergy season with a whole house air cleaning system
The spring allergy season (*sniffle*) is upon us.
That means it’s time to stock up on tissues, nasal spray and anything else you need to cope with what folks at the Weather Channel are calling a “pollen vortex” in the Northeast (basically a mild winter + El Niño = one whopper of an allergy season).
To add to the problem, allergens usually get worse – sometimes much worse – when you go inside: the EPA estimates that indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air.
The consequence? Rapidly rising rates of illness, asthma, and worse: according to the American College of Allergists, up to half of all illnesses are either caused by or aggravated by indoor air pollution.
That’s a pretty bad consequence.
Fortunately, Bolkema has a solution to indoor air quality problems (and for your itchy, watery eyes) – a whole house air-cleaning system from Carrier or Aprilaire.
A whole-house air cleaning system, or ionizer, works with your heating and cooling system to remove air pollutants as small as 1.0 microns from your home, including pollen, dust, and dander.
That’s kind of important considering that you inhale about 15,000 quarts of air per day (compared to, say, 2 quarts of water…and we bet you filter that).
