There are many things to love about the month of April. The warmer weather, the budding trees, and the colorful blooms all really showcase New Jersey’s beauty in the springtime. But there is another reason to enjoy this spring month, too—especially if you’re a pet lover. Because…
It’s National Hug Your Dog Day on April 10!
And our team of dog enthusiasts can never pass up the opportunity to give our furry friends some extra snuggles on this special day.
Of course, along with dogs—and spring—comes something else we don’t enjoy quite as much—allergies! And if you’re an allergy sufferer, you know that itchy eyes and constant sneezing are no joke. So, with spring allergies on the horizon, we thought now is the perfect time to offer solutions to help prevent allergy flare-ups. Ready or not, here we go!
Is Your Indoor Air Compromised?
First, let’s talk about your indoor air. To understand if your indoor air is compromised, start by asking your family members how they’re feeling. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, if you experience any of the following symptoms, your indoor air could be to blame.
- Dry itchy, skin and throat
- Itchy eyes and nose
- Breathing issues
Are you nodding yes to more than a few of these symptoms? If so, it’s time to take charge of your indoor air today.
Tackle Those Allergy Triggers with Better Air
In addition to allergy medications, there are additional ways to help cut back on icky allergies—especially inside the home. And these include indoor air quality filtrations systems.
Some of the leading culprits of that can cause poor indoor air quality include:
- Cleaning chemicals and supplies
- Pet dander
- Pollen, dust mites, and dirt
- Bacteria and viruses
- Mold and mildew
Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Elite Air offers a variety of indoor air quality systems that crack down on the contaminants that can enter your HVAC system and often trigger allergy symptoms.
These systems work by removing nasty airborne particles in your air—things such as pollen, dust, pet dander, and bacteria.
Too much moisture in your house can cause mold, musty smells, water stains, and even respiratory issues. Dehumidifiers remove excessive moisture from your home and balance your indoor air so you can breathe easier.
If your family suffers from dry skin and itchy throats or you’ve noticed that your hardwood floors or wood furniture have started to crack, you could have very dry indoor air. A whole-home humidifier adds this moisture back into your home, so your humidity levels are balanced just right.
UV (ultraviolet) systems use ultraviolet light technology to zap airborne pathogens such as mold, pollen, bacteria, dust mites, and viruses.
