Today is the first day of spring—a beautiful time of the year, but also a time when allergies wreak havoc. More than 40 million Americans suffer from nasal allergies, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). The AAFA says that springtime allergy triggers—mainly tree pollen—cause such symptoms as itchy runny nose, nasal and sinus congestion, repeated sneezing, watery eyes, inflamed sinuses and, in extreme cases, difficulty breathing due to all these symptoms.
Many of our customers in Germantown, Gaithersburg, Potomac, Clarksburg, and throughout the Montgomery County, MD area will suffer from springtime allergies. Fortunately, scheduling air cleaner installation now (at the start of spring) can help you and your family members better cope with allergy season.

What Are Air Cleaners?
Air cleaners, or air purifiers, are designed to remove common indoor pollutants and particulates—pollen, dust, combustion gases, tobacco smoke, pesticides, and chemicals—from the air. Indoor air pollutants are unwanted, sometimes harmful materials in the air. According to the EPA, the best way to address this risk is to control or eliminate the sources of pollutant and to ventilate a home with clean outdoor air. This ventilation method may, however, be restricted by weather conditions or undesirable levels of contaminants contained in the outdoor air. As a result, an air cleaning device may be useful.
Families that install an air purifier in their homes find that it becomes easier to breathe inside. Also, the cost and size of air purifiers have dropped in recent years, so it is much easier to find one that meets your needs. A side perk of an air purifier is that it cuts down on the amount of dusting you have to do.
HEPA Air Cleaners Are Best for Allergy Sufferers
Here at Michael Bonsby Heating & Air Conditioning, we can install a High Efficiency Particulate Arrestor (HEPA) cleaner in your MD home. HEPA air purifiers effectively capture airborne particles—the percent of particles captured is the highest of any air purification technology available today. Many HEPA air cleaners have efficiency ratings of 99.7 percent and are able to trap particles as small as .3 microns! This means that HEPA air cleaners can trap anything from dust to dust mites, from smoke to pollen, from pet dander to airborne viruses—they remove just about any unwanted particle from the air. This makes HEPA air purifiers the choice for allergy sufferers in MD and others who suffer from respiratory conditions. Check out our American Standard air cleaners, which can remove 99.98 percent of allergens from the air!
It’s most effective to install just one HEPA air cleaner on your central HVAC system. One air cleaner handles your entire home and benefits you and your entire family.
