Ductless on Every Job: Allergies

We’re back again to educate contractors on another situation where they could consider ductless as an answer to a sales call’s need. As part of the Ductless on Every Job campaign we launched last month, we’re focusing on why ductless is the perfect HVAC solution for families with allergies and homes with poor air quality.

October 18_Ductless on Every Job - Allergies ImageDuring the fall, homeowners keep their windows open to continue enjoying the crisp, fresh air of the outdoors. But as the cold weather draws near, windows will close and heating units will turn on. This means that everything from showering and cooking dinner to pet dander and unavoidable dust mites will have an even bigger impact on the air quality inside a home. The Environmental Protection Agency lists poor indoor air quality in the top five environmental threats to public health, which doesn’t help the estimated 40 million individuals in the U.S. who are affected by allergies. Since homeowners and their families stay inside more when the temperatures start to drop, the impact of poor air quality on their health becomes more apparent. For these types of customers – those looking for an alternative to keeping the windows open for healthy and clean air – the search is over.

Ductless systems use a sophisticated multi-part filtration system to reduce airborne contaminants such as allergens, viruses and bacteria from the air. This combination of filters traps common indoor pollutants such as dust, pollen, mold and other particles that plague allergy sufferers, providing a healthier breathing environment for the homeowners and their families.

Our ductless technology even makes it easy for homeowners to clean and maintain their HVAC system. The indoor units have hybrid catechin pre-filters that are easily accessible in the unit, allowing the maintenance process to take only a matter of minutes. Each unit has its own filter that last up to 10 years to prevent cross contamination of air from room to room, which helps your customers save money and is beneficial for the environment as well.

According to the EPA, 87 percent of American homeowners are not aware that pollution may be worse inside their homes than outdoors so let’s educate them. It’s important for your customers to know how to maintain healthy air inside their homes in order to keep allergies and health issues at bay. And that’s ductless.
