If you or any of your family members are suffering from allergies in Fayetteville, North Carolina, your home’s HVAC system could be partially to blame. Replacing a traditional heating and cooling system with ductless mini-splits can reduce symptoms and improve your indoor air quality.
Improve Air Quality
When you think of air pollution, your mind probably conjures up images of smog and smoke in big cities. However, the air you breathe indoors is often substantially more polluted than anything you’d breathe outside. The air in your home recirculates multiple times throughout the day when the HVAC system is running, which means any dirt, pollen, pet hair, dander, and other debris in the air will be pulled into the system and pushed back through the vents.
A traditional cooling and heating system uses ducts to move air, which can attract these contaminants and allow them to build up. With a ductless system, you don’t have to worry about pollutants building up in your home and being recirculated in the air you breathe.
Many of the modern ductless mini-split systems also have continuous air movement that improves ventilation. When the air in your home sits for too long without moving, it often becomes stale and stagnant, which can aggravate your allergies. If you have a ductless system, a fan can keep the air flowing for a cleaner atmosphere, along with a fresher smell.
When the air gets too cold or too warm at night, you may wake up feeling congested. Inflammation of the nasal passages can also contribute to other unpleasant health issues, which can occur when you’re exposed to cold or hot air as you sleep. With a ductless system, you have more control over specific zones, so you can keep your bedroom at a specific temperature that will help you sleep more comfortably and reduce symptoms.
