Spring is allergy season, the time of the year when the air is filled with pollen, grass and many other allergens. These airborne contaminants are not only an issue for people who suffer from allergies; they can also cause allergy symptoms in others.
There are many ways to help you get through the allergy season. We’d like to suggest one that you might not expect: installing a ductless air conditioning system for your home. These systems, as the name indicates, do not use a set of ducts to distribute cool air around a home. They offer a number of excellent benefits for household, including an increase in the quality of indoor that will help decrease allergies.
How does ductless air conditioning lower allergy problems?
First, we have to explain how a ductless AC operates. Like standard air conditioners, ductless systems have both indoor and outdoor units, with the indoor unit absorbing heat from the air and then using a fan to send the cooled-down air into the living spaces (the heat is released through the outdoor unit). But a standard air conditioner’s indoor unit is hooked to a ventilation network to distribute the air. In a ductless system, there are multiple indoor air handler units, each connected separately to the outdoor unit. These air handlers are mounted on room walls and send cool air directly into the rooms without needing any ducts.
This is an advantage when it comes to allergies (as well as asthma) because ducts are a prime gathering location of dust, pollen and other allergens. These pollutants can’t be removed from your home through standard cleaning methods, and when the AC comes on, the fan blasts them out into the air in high concentrations. Because a ductless air conditioner has no ducts that can get dirty, they eliminate a major source of indoor air pollution.
