Help, my allergies are killing me!

Many of us are suffering this time of year with our allergies.  Sometimes, it can seem hopeless.  But, here are a few tips to help minimize allergy symptoms:

  • Keep windows closed and run your AC.
  • Use HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters and clean them often.
  • Bathe pets often to reduce pet dander in your home.
  • Wash your bedding every week in hot water.
  • Wear a mask and gloves when your clean, vacuum or paint.
  • Vacuum once or twice a week.
  • When possible, chose hardwood or tile flooring.
  • Change your clothing and bathe, if possible, after being outdoors.

In addition, you may want to consider installing  an air cleaner in your home.  Standard air cleaners have filters that are very dense, so they stop the dust by trapping it in a slightly porous filter.  The fewer the pores, the more dust it can trap.  However, this not only stops the dust and dirt, but it also stops the air from moving as well.  So, you may not be as comfortable.  This is called "pressure drop."  The revolutionary Trane CleanEffects air cleaner has the lowest pressure drop with the highest efficiency possible.

Particles like dust, smoke and bacteria are often .3 microns or less.  At that size, allergens can get deep into your lungs because they aren't filtered well by your nose and throat.  A Trane CleanEffects can reduce the presence of potential asthma and allergy attack triggers in your home, like dust, pollen, pat hair & dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, most tobacco smoke, cooking grease and even bacteria.

The Trane CleanEffects air cleaner utilizes patented, breakthrough air cleaning technology to remove up to an astounding 99.98% of airborne allergens from the air that passes through the filter.  It catches particles as small as .1 micron, making it 8 times more effective than even the best HEPA room filters and up to 100 times more effective than a standard 1" filter.

Trane CleanEffects has been performance-tested by LMS Technologies and Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc., with the results verified by professors from the Harvard School of Public Health.

The air cleaner is installed in the return air side of your air conditioning system to clear the circulated air that comes into your home.
