Household allergens be gone with Trane Air Conditioners! Do you suffer from allergies? My dad and I do, and today we are sharing how Trane HVAC systems not only work more efficiently and quieter to keep you comfortable all year long, but also help minimize the allergens inside your home and help keep away itchy eyes and sneezes!
If you suffer from allergies, you know the exhaustion and irritability that comes with itchy, burning eyes, relentless sneezing and the overall tired feeling that allergens can cause. I’ve had allergies most of my life. In fact, I spent 20 years getting allergy shots to help combat the dust, pollen and ragweed.
How to Manage your Indoor Air Quality During Allergy Season
If you are new to allergies or have suffered for years, you know the overall crappy feeling when the allergens are in full force. The best thing you can do is keep the inside of your home allergen-free. Today I am sharing what we do in our house as well as a few other proven tips to minimize household allergens.
Trane provides revolutionary heating and cooling systems, pushing the boundaries of performance and reliability. They build and test their equipment to last. They also provide first-to-the-market, industry-leading products, like variable speed motors and the Climatuff Compressor – that enable us to efficiently heat, cool, and clean our home’s air.
Having a quality air conditioner and filter system are key to minimizing allergens in your house.
Trane also offers the CleanEffects Whole-Home Air Cleaner for whole-home filtration, as well as disposable, pleated Trane Comfort Performance Filters. I cannot even begin to tell you how important it is to maintain and keep a clean filter in your air conditioning system. It’s amazing how much “gunk” these filters catch from airborne pollutants like dust, dander, smoke, pollen and more.
Allergy Tip: Keep Doors and Windows Closed during Allergy Season
Always keep your doors and windows closed during allergy season. Forget about letting the fresh air in! As fresh as the air may seem, it’s full of allergens that will wreak havoc in your house. If you suffer from allergies, you know exactly what I mean!
My mom and I occasionally argue about this. She loves the windows open during the summer, but unfortunately, leaving the windows open fills your house with pollen.
You know, that gross yellow-green film that covers your furniture? Yes, that gross pollen film causes allergy sufferers to feel like they have the worst cold on the planet, exhausted and not want to get out of bed in the morning.
Allergy Tip: Trane’s CleanEffects Air Cleaning System
Keeping windows and doors closed as much as possible and installing a whole-home air cleaning system, such as Trane’s CleanEffects, can provide a cleaner and healthier environment.
CleanEffects utilizes revolutionary technology which can remove up to 99.98% of all airborne particles, making it 8 times more effective than the best HEPA room filter and up to 100 times more effective than a standard 1-inch filter.
Trane CleanEffects is also certified as asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. It does not require any costly replacement filters and has filters that can be cleaned at home, as needed.
Allergy tip: Wipe off your pets after they have been outdoors
The best way to prevent the impact of pollen indoors is to remove clothes and shoes immediately and consider wiping pets down when returning from outdoors. The picture above is our two dogs playing outside (both have since crossed rainbow bridge…). During allergy season, they too would suffer from the pollen. We always wiped off their feet and coats after they were outside playing. It’s amazing the amount of green/yellow pollen that would come off of them.
Allergy tip: Wash your sheets in hot water weekly.
Wash your clothes regularly, definitely keep your bedding clean. In fact, you should consider using anti-dust mite covers on your mattresses, pillows and box springs, and wash bedding in hot water (130 degrees F) once a week.
Allergy Tip: Avoid and Minimize Dust
To lessen the amount of dust in the home, remember to change or clean your HVAC filter at least every three months. (More often if you have pets or someone who suffers from allergies.) For replacing the 1-inch filters, consider the Trane Comfort Performance Filter that traps dust, dust mites, mold spores, pollen and pet dander.
To really amp up your indoor air quality, consider contacting your Trane HVAC professional to see if the CleanEffects Whole-home Air Cleaner with reusable filters is right for your home.
CleanEffects uses revolutionary technology to remove up to 99.8 percent of airborne particles from the air. This reduces harmful bacterial and allergens from the home, like pollen, dust, pet hair, tobacco smoke, bacteria and more.
Coming from Trane, you can trust that these filters and filtration systems carry their commitment to providing consumers with the most reliable and efficient products for comfortable homes with the highest quality of indoor air possible.
I would also love to hear your allergy tips! The allergy season is here, and we are always looking for ways to keep allergens under control.
