Clean Air During Allergy Season

Most of our customers think about Scott-Lee Heating Company as a place that can handle their home temperature needs. However, our trained technicians are experts in more than heating and cooling. They can also help you improve the quality of the air you breathe in your home.

Indoor Irritants

You have probably walked into a room when the sun was shining directly through a window. You could see the light reflected off all the dust particles floating in the air. Every time you breathe, some of those particles are going into your lungs. Of course, your body has some natural ways of filtering pollutants, but it is helpful to get them out of the air in the first place. This is especially important for people with allergies or respiratory problems. In the allergy season, the mix of dust, dander, and pollen in the air can trigger allergy symptoms. For people with asthma, this will aggravate symptoms and increase the risk of an attack.

Simple Air Quality Solutions

There are some simple things you can do to improve air quality. The main way to keep pollen and dirt particles out of the air is to keep them out of your home. Especially during allergy season, you will want to sweep, vacuum and dust more frequently. If you are able, ask your family and guests to leave their shoes at the entryway or in a mud room. This will keep them from tracking particles into your home.

Advanced Air Quality Solutions

At Scott-Lee Heating Company, we carry and install several products to improve the air quality in your home.
