Reduce Allergy Symptoms with HVAC Upgrades

Published: May 14, 2021

Your home’s HVAC system affects the air you breathe and therefore your health. There is no debating the connection between your home’s HVAC system and allergy season symptom intensity and frequency.

Not all systems are equipped to handle allergy season, but with the right upgrades, you can reduce allergy symptoms and breathe easier.

HEPA Filters

Regular filters have a limited ability to remove smaller particles. For families without allergy issues, this is sufficient. However, if you have allergies, you will benefit from installing a filter, such as a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Absorbing) filter. These filters, also used in hospitals, can remove smaller allergens from the air you breathe and lessen allergy symptoms.

Energy Recovery Ventilators

Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) remove allergen-laden air and replace it with fresh, filtered air. Sufficient ventilation reduces carbon dioxide buildup, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as well as those pesky allergens.

UV light Air Purifier

Air Purifiers

Another way to remove allergens from your home is by using an air purifier system that integrates into your home’s HVAC system. Options for purifiers include combinations of filtration and UV light to kill germs, boosting your overall health while keeping your air fresh.

If installing a permanent air purifier is not feasible, you can still benefit from smaller, portable air purifiers placed throughout your home.

Humidity control

High humidity encourages the growth of dust mites and other allergens that can trigger symptoms. A dehumidifier in a moisture-prone area of your house, such as the basement, will reduce your exposure to allergens and your home will also benefit overall. Low humidity dries mucus membranes, leaving you more susceptible to allergens while worsening symptoms. Adding a humidifier to your home’s HVAC system addresses this issue.

In both situations, proper control is critical so be sure and discuss this with a professional to get the right system (or systems) installed.

"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
