If you aren’t sure if such a high-performing air filtration system is a perfect product for your home, there are a multitude of options to choose from when it comes to bettering your indoor air quality. Below are different air filters and cleaners that you can choose for your home’s air quality. Germicidal UV Light Systems Germicidal UV Light System is just a long, convoluted way to say germ destroyer. These systems help eliminate germs and bacteria that can cause allergies and can exacerbate the symptoms of asthma. According to a review, 1 out of 5 people who experienced allergies was also exposed to fungi and bacteria in their ventilation systems. Purchasing a UV light system helps to kill off these allergens and keep your home healthy. Humidify or Dehumidify Dry air can irritate your nasal passages and take your mild allergies to a full-blown sinus infection in a matter of days. Furthermore, too much humidity can foster the growth of dust mites and microbes, worsening your allergy symptoms. Help better the quality of your home’s air with Hammond Plumbing & Heating.
