If you or a member of your family suffers from asthma or a similar condition, you know just how scary it can be. Asthma strikes at your ability to take in air, and an attack can make you feel like you’re suffocating. Nothing beats quality medical care and reliable medication, but you can take some big steps to alleviate things with the judicious installation of an indoor air quality product in your home. A trained technician can assess your needs and recommend a system to help your Boston, MA household breathe a little easier (literally).
Every heating and air conditioning system comes with an air filter, designed to screen out hair and other contaminants. But for a more comprehensive type of filtration, look into an electronic air purifier. It works in conjunction with your heating and air conditioning system, ionizing particles and contaminants as they pass through your ducts and causing them stick to the walls of a collection chamber. As the system runs, your air is gradually scrubbed clean, improving the indoor air quality in the process.
Energy Recovery Ventilators
An energy recovery ventilator is placed in your attic, and funnels stale air out of your house and fresh air in, all without changing the temperature your heater and air conditioner work so hard to generate. In addition to helping your home be more energy efficient, it keeps the air from stagnating and removes contaminants without forcing you to open your doors or windows: no small consideration in the midst of our freezing New England winters.
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
The high moisture content or our summers and low moisture content of our winters can both make life miserable for asthma suffers. Humidifiers add moisture to dry air, while dehumidifiers remove it from excessively moist air: both of which will help you breathe easier and reduce the risk of asthma attacks.
