It’s a pain dealing with asthma. Coughing. Sneezing. Tight chest. It’s the worst. There are ways to deal with it and control it. But doing that requires knowledge. Here are 3 articles we’ve written that will educate asthma sufferers on ways to reduce the amount of asthma by inducing pollutants inside their homes.

  1. Portable Air Cleaners vs. Whole-Home Air Cleaners: Which One Should I Buy? Using an air cleaner (also known as air purifier) is one of the three air improvement strategies discussed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They can filter out the smaller particles that irritate asthma symptoms. If you do want an air cleaner, you should investigate what kind you should get: an inexpensive portable unit or a super effective whole-home unit that can improve your entire home’s air. This article compares each of the important qualities like:
    • Price
    • Air cleaning coverage
    • Noise level
    • Installation difficulty
    • Level of maintenance
    • Space taken up in home.
  2. Common Spring-Cleaning Products That May Be Poisoning Your Home’s Air Many homeowners are not aware that the chemicals used in everyday cleaners and air fresheners can ruin their home’s air quality. So much so that the average homeowner’s indoor air is 2 to 5-- and sometimes up to 100 times--more polluted than outdoor air according to the EPA.

  3. What is MERV and Why Should I Care? Your air filter works hard to make sure dust and other particles don’t get into your heating and cooling system--including your air ducts. MERV is the rating that measures how effective an air filter is at filtering out smaller particles. A higher MERV rating means it can catch smaller particles, including several asthma triggers like dust mites and pet dander. This article gives you the 411 on MERV rating ranges you should be aware of. Air quality solutions for your home Want to learn more on how to improve your air quality?
