How Does the Indoor Air Quality in My Home Affect My Allergies?

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states unequivocally that indoor air can be many times more polluted than outdoor air. Because Yuma’s energy-efficient homes are virtually leak-proof and lack ventilation, allergy-activating particles like pollen can be trapped inside in high concentrations. That makes allergies worse indoors than outdoors. When pollen counts are incredibly high, opening a window for ventilation only makes your indoor air quality and allergies worse.

Improve Air Quality and Reduce Symptoms by Reducing Pollen

You can reduce the quantity of pollen in your home by implementing these practices:

  • Dust and vacuum frequently
  • Remove clothing in the garage or laundry room after spending time outside
  • Rinse off porches and vehicles with a hose
  • Brush off pets before bringing them inside
  • Shower before going to bed

Improve Air Quality and Eliminate Symptoms by Removing Allergens

Although you can reduce indoor pollen, you can’t remove all of it. Also, many allergy-sufferers are allergic to pet dander, dust, cockroach droppings and mites in addition to pollen. Air cleaners are an effective way to improve indoor air quality. The Trane CleanEffects™ system has been shown by industry studies to be the most effective product on the market. Research by scientists at Environment Health & Engineering, Inc., and the Harvard School of Public Health found that Trane CleanEffects™ removes up to 99.98 percent of indoor allergens, including:

  • Pet dander
  • Dust and mites
  • Pollen
  • Insect droppings
  • Viruses and bacteria
  • Mildew
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Chemicals
  • Gasses
  • Soil and ash

As an air purification expert and a Trane Comfort Specialist, Quick Refrigeration can add Trane CleanEffects™ to any central HVAC system. To learn more about having an allergy-free Yuma home, please contact us.
