HVAC filter and Dehumidification
April 1, 2024

Spring is here in Douglasville and surrounding areas, which means so is Atlanta allergy season. Have you been noticing an increase in allergy symptoms in your home? While the source could very well be spring allergies, there could also be a problem with your home’s indoor air quality. 

At Anchor Heating & Air, not only can we help you determine exactly what’s causing the rise in indoor allergens, but help find reliable solutions with our comprehensive indoor air quality products, including home dehumidification, air purifiers, and more. 

Is It You or Your Home? How to Diagnose IAQ Issues

One of the most common signs of poor indoor air quality is worsened allergy and asthma symptoms, which can make it difficult for homeowners to recognize that there’s an issue at all. However, there are several other things that you can look out for that can help diagnose indoor air quality issues, such as:

  • Musty odors
  • Visible mold growth
  • Dust accumulation
  • Condensation on windows
  • Hot & cold spots in your home

Indoor Air Quality Products for a Healthier Home

Anchor Heating & Air offers several products that can boost your home’s indoor air quality and help your family breathe easier throughout spring and any time of the year.

HVAC Filters 

In general, your HVAC filter should be changed every 1-2 months, however, they may need to be changed more often if you have sensitive allergies or other IAQ problems. Air filters help to keep pollutants out of your home’s breathing air, but they also help improve the performance of your heating & cooling systems. 

At Anchor, we stock a full line of air filters that are compatible with most HVAC systems. We can also change your air filter for you during a maintenance visit!

Air Purifiers

Installing an air purification system in your home can drastically reduce the amount of contaminants in your living spaces, like dust, pet dander, and even mold spores. We carry a full selection of air purifiers from Aprilaire, REME, and Abatement Technologies that come in a wide variety of options, either connecting directly to your home’s HVAC or operating as a stand-alone system. 

A few of the features of our air purification systems include:

  • High MERV ratings (A measurement that determines the effectiveness of an air filter.)
  • HEPA filters (Which are designed to remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns or larger.)
  • Germicidal UV lamps (Which use ultraviolet light to deactivate bacteria, viruses, and more.)

Whole-Home Dehumidification Systems

It’s no secret that the Atlanta area sees its fair share of humidity, but it can cause serious IAQ issues when it makes its way into your home. The EPA recommends that indoor humidity levels stay in the 30-50% range, and dehumidifiers can help you find that balance in your living spaces.

At Anchor Heating & Air, we carry industry-leading dehumidification systems. Known for their superior quality, Aprilaire dehumidifiers are built to last with moisture control capabilities which are also ENERGY STAR rated for optimal efficiency (rated ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2024!).
