Seasonal allergy sufferers often spend all spring and summer long sneezing, coughing and wheezing at the pollen and allergens lurking outside. While heading inside for refuge might help a little bit, homeowners with traditional ducted HVAC systems could be drawing the same pollen indoors. Ductless systems are an ideal solution for seasonal allergy sufferers seeking relief.
Ductless systems use an advanced multi-stage filtration system to get allergens and debris out of the air in your home. The system is designed to remove a wide range of airborne particles and contaminants from the air including bacteria, viruses and allergens.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Did you know that the air quality inside of your home might be worse than the air quality outside? The Environmental Protection Agency lists bad indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental threats to public health. Indoor air pollutants are of greater concern because indoor levels could be 2-5 times higher than outdoor pollutant levels. Since most people spend 75-90% of the day inside, indoor pollutants can do a great deal more damage to health.
Ductless systems have pre-filters that are designed to absorb any odor-making gases. An anti-allergen filter will remove indoor allergens that can irritate seasonal allergy sufferers like dust, mites, pollen and debris. Depending on what Mitsubishi system you choose, your ductless system might also utilize a Platinum Catalyst filter to deodorize your home as it runs.
While traditional HVAC systems are not inherently bad for seasonal allergy sufferers, the regular maintenance and cleanings that are required cause air quality to degrade rapidly over time. Ductless systems have easy-to-clean filters for pristine air quality. Tidying up the filter is as easy as opening the filter access door, sliding the filter screens out, washing them, allowing them to dry and then placing them back in the ductless system. With cleaning and proper maintenance, your filters could last up to 10 years. You can perform a great deal of the regular maintenance on your own, and anything else a ductless technician can take care of for you.
