Spring  is almost here, and for most people this means flowers, festivals and pleasant weather. For others, however, it also means nasal congestion, runny noses and allergies. Thankfully, your HVAC system can help alleviate some of these symptoms. Air purifiers are a great addition that can help you better enjoy the wonders of spring and ensure your allergies aren’t triggered by some of the things this season is known for.


The idea behind air purifiers is actually fairly straightforward. The air purifier can be a standalone unit or retrofitted into your existing heating and cooling system. They often have fans to help circulate air and filters that catch contaminants as they pass through the purifier. Our experts at AC & Refrigeration Works recommend using air purifiers, and here are the top reasons why:

Asthma and allergies. Spring is a wonderful season, but the dust and pollen it brings can put your indoor air quality out of whack. Air purifiers are effective at lessening these particles inside your home, allowing you to breathe a little bit easier as you enjoy the warmer weather.

A healthier home. In addition to eliminating common triggers for asthma and allergies, air purifiers are also helpful in keeping your home and everyone in it healthier. Its air filtration can help alleviate common symptoms caused by poor air quality, such as headaches, itchiness, fatigue, sneezing and coughing, and even nausea. It should be noted that if these symptoms persist even after you leave your house, it’s best to consult with a medical professional.

A nice-smelling house. Talk to your air conditioning repair and installation company about installing air purifiers with activated carbon filters. These are especially helpful when it comes to eliminating bad odors caused by cooking food, cigarette smoke or any other activity. HEPA filters are also 99.7% effective at removing particulate contaminants from your home.
