Take Control of your allergies this Spring with help from Action Mechanical

 – By

Sneezing, congestion, itching, watering eyes, they all mean one thing: Spring is in full bloom, but so are your allergies.

The cold, dry air of winter can really do its damage on your body. The dryness can inflame and irritate the mucus membranes in your respiratory track. Not to mention this can cause your body to be more susceptible to catching colds, the flu and other infections! The cold air also helps aid in the survival of harmful viruses. Enter Spring, which also means pollen. Pollen is the villain in many allergy stories, and may be the culprit of your discomfort. If you suffer from seasonal allergies or sinus infections, you are no stranger to the negative impact the weather can have on your health. The good news? There’s a solution!

Environmental control is a great way to fight off reoccurring allergy and sinus problems as well as prevent future issues. Did you know that installing a whole-home humidifier system can help with your allergies and aid in other health benefits as well? It can help provide relief to inflammation, and allow your nasal tissues to clear irritants and allergens more easily. Your body will have an easier time purging unwanted contaminants as well.

If you are using a smaller unit, make sure to keep an eye on the humidity level in your home. While smaller amounts of humidity aid in relief of your nasal passages, if the humidity is too high it can also have a negative impact. Molds, allergens and dust mites thrive in a humid environment. Most humidifiers have a gauge which causes the unit to shut off when the desired humidity has been reached, but this is if you decide to go with a smaller, room unit. You will also have to consider routine maintenance so that you don’t foster mold and mildew growth in your machine. If not properly attended, this can cause more problems than you started out with!

Although it is doable, maintaining a constant humidity and maintenance of an individual humidifier unit can seem too involved. Action Mechanical offers a great whole-home solution where you are able to set it and forget it! They are a hands-off approach to providing comfort in your entire home. These humidifiers even connect to your central HVAC unit allowing moisture to be pushed into every room in your home. The amount of humidity is automatically adjusted, so you don’t have to worry about messing with it! Your allergies will thank you!

Don’t forget to add air to your spring-cleaning list. Another way to help your allergies subside and ensure the air in your home is free of harmful substances like viruses, mold, allergens, and bacteria is with an ionizer. These top-of-the-line air purifiers can eliminate airborne particles, chemicals and odors. They work by using electrical charges to create ions that will in turn attach themselves to pathogens, particles and gas. They will rob these molecules of hydrogen which kills them and allows particles to collect together into larger, filterable masses. Action Mechanical is a certified local provider and installer of these ionizer products, with equipment in stock and ready.
