Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
As spring and allergy season are underway, many people in the Pittsburgh area may experience allergies not only outdoors where pollen levels are high but indoors, as well. Gillece offers air quality solutions that can help to reduce allergenic particles and triggers within a home for indoor allergy relief this season and all year round.
Gillece indoor air quality products include a variety of air cleaners that work to capture small airborne particles that are potentially the most dangerous to inhale. Particles 2.5 microns or smaller are classified as Respirable Suspended Particles and considered inhalation hazards due to their ability to avoid mucosal capture and reach the lungs. High-efficiency air cleaners provided by Gillece are generally effective at capturing 97% of particles down to .3 microns in size.
One type of air cleaner that Gillece provides is a HEPA Filtration System, which is commonly used to combat indoor allergies. A HEPA- High Efficiency Particulate Air- Filter should capture at least 99.97% of all particles .3 microns in size. A HEPA Filtration System provided by Gillece combines the use of three filters to reduce allergenic particles like dust mites, pollen, and mold spores from indoor air. The system can be installed between filters in a heating or cooling system with easy mounting ability and quiet operation.
Gillece Indoor Air Quality Services also offers whole-house filtration through devices installed within a forced-air system. One such air cleaner uses an electrostatic charge to attract submicron particles. This high-efficiency filter pad for indoor allergy control also has the ability to remove 97% of particles .3 microns, as well as 40% of Volatile Organic Compounds, which include forms of chemicals commonly found in homes, such as pesticides, paint, and cleaning products.
Dust mites, pollen, and mold spores are common allergens that may be present in a home and can become more of a problem during spring, especially when homeowners open windows. Gillece provides cooling service in addition to air quality solutions and recommends running the air conditioner instead of opening windows to keep pollen out. Pollen and other particles can linger on surfaces and bedding within a home and trigger allergy symptoms as a result. Air conditioning is another part of air quality that homeowners can control to manage indoor allergen levels this year.
