The return of spring brings warmer weather, daffodils, and newborn animals but it also brings a lot of pollen and allergens. For many people this causes the dreaded hay fever with affects such as such as sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes.
Pollen particles are very small and can enter your home through open windows and doors which can make it difficult for some people to escape hay fever. This is one of the reasons why Heat Pumps are a great option too cool your home during spring and summer.
Heat Pumps are all fitted with air filters which remove dirt, dust, and particles from the air. There are a range of Heat Pump brands, such as Mitsubishi and Daikin who have developed advanced filtration technology that not only removes dirt and dust but can also kill airborne bacteria and contaminants.
Mitsubishi have developed their Plasma Quad Plus Advanced Filtration Technology, which has been designed for asthma and allergy sufferers. This system uses two-stage plasma technology which works like an electrical curtain to remove smells, dust, pollen, and other allergens. This electrical curtain is so efficient that it can even capture PM2.5 particles – which are up to 30 times smaller than the width of human hair.
Daikin have also developed technology that is specially designed to help with allergies and remove dust and particles from the air. Daikin Split Heat Pumps carry the blue butterfly symbol which indicates that this product has been verified as an asthma and allergy friendly product. Many of Daikin’s later models are also fitted with a Titanium Air-Purifying filter. These filters trap microscopic particles and decompose odors as well as absorb and deactivate bacteria.
