Spring is the ideal season for opening your windows and welcoming the fresh air. If your Lake Forest, Illinois, home struggles with seasonal air quality problems, however, the last thing you’ll want to do is let in outdoor pollutants, too. Learn the signs of common springtime air quality issues like pollen, humidity, and stale air, and learn how to eliminate them from your home.

Excess Pollen

If your family suffers from spring allergies, then even a few specks of pollen are bound to cause discomfort. You can keep pollen out of the home by encouraging family and friends to remove shoes and coats at the door, but serious allergies require an additional step.

At Carefree Comfort, Inc., we recommend installing a high-quality air cleaner that works directly with your HVAC system. The Evolution Perfect Air Purifier captures up to 95 percent of pollen and other microscopic particles in the air and can even inactivate germs, pollen, and mold.

High Humidity

Humidity can help enhance warm spring temperatures, but excess moisture in the air causes physical discomfort and a range of air quality issues. Organisms like mold and dust mites thrive in humid environments, causing more problems for allergy sufferers.

Running your air conditioner can help to keep humidity under control, but you’ll need to take an extra step to deal with humidity. A Preferred Series Whole-Home Dehumidifier pulls extra moisture out of your home’s air supply so you can stay cool and comfortable without overworking your air conditioner.

Stale Air

During the spring, musty air indoors provides a stark contrast to the fresh air outdoors. If you notice a musty, stale odor in your home, we recommend the use of energy-recovery ventilators, which keep your indoor air fresh while keeping energy consumption low.

Do any of these springtime air quality issues sound familiar? Whether you’re dealing with excess pollen or high humidity, call Carefree Comfort, Inc. for expert help at 847-388-0115.
