Hay fever is a condition that most people suffer from at some point in their life. If you are reading this, chances are you have had it or know someone who has been afflicted by the condition. One of the worst parts about hay fever is how difficult it can be to breathe when pollen counts are high and allergy sufferers come into contact with these allergens. The symptoms include coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes and nose, as well as difficulty breathing due to congestion of airways. But did you know that there are ways to help hay fever sufferers?
We aren’t talking about the usual remedies of medication, showers and eating honey. We are talking about Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV)
Why should you choose a heat recovery ventilation system?
A heat recovery ventilation system uses a fan and ducting to draw in the fresh air from outside, before filtering it and blowing it back into your home. This makes for cleaner, healthier indoor air whilst also saving you energy.
By using ventilation within your house, you can reduce the number of allergens that are present in your home. This will help allergy sufferers breathe better and be able to function more normally.
HRV systems also help inhibit the growth of mould, bacteria and other allergens. This will help keep you and your family healthy and reduce allergy symptoms during those high pollen, summer months.
How difficult is it to install?
Heat recovery ventilation systems are easy to install with minimal disruption when planned correctly. Systems come in a variety of sizes and fittings that allow them to be installed in even the smallest of spaces.
When it comes to installation, you have two choices: DIY or professional installation. Each comes with its own benefits and drawbacks, however, if you are a competent DIYer, then installing a system shouldn’t be too much of an issue for you.
