If You Have Allergies, Heat Pumps Are Not To Be Sniffed At

Spring is the season when some people take on a whole new lease on life. They feel energised, fit and frisky. On the other hand,  there are many other unfortunate people who just feel downright sniffly, sneezy and wheezy. While spring is the season of new life, it is also the season of allergies, and the yellow pollen we’re now seeing everywhere is usually to blame.

In spring, trees, grasses, and weeds release pollen grains into the air to fertilize other plants. That’s all well and good for Mother Nature, as this is an important part of the process that allows for new growth everywhere. But at the same time, it is not so good for the poor people who are allergic to pollen. When pollen enters someone’s nose, the body’s immune system mistakenly sees it as a dangerous invader and releases antibodies to attack the allergens. This leads to the release of chemicals called histamines which can cause the runny noses, watery eyes and other symptoms that we associate with spring allergies. Pharmacies will tell you they sell more anti-histamines in spring than at any other time of year, and now you know why.

So, what has all this pollen information got to do with the heat pump installation we do so well in Auckland and Wellington? Well, our modern heat pumps act as much more than just highly efficient heating and cooling appliances. They also act as very effective air cleansers, delivering a higher quality of fresh and breathable air in your home. This is all down to their advanced filtration systems which remove pollen, dust and other particles from the air before delivering clean and allergen-free air back to you. It means a far more comfortable environment in which to relax, without sneezes, wheezes and sniffles.

Spring is an excellent time therefore to get your heat pump installed in your Auckland or Wellington home. And not just because it is allergy season. It’s still a cool time of year, despite the blue skies and longer, sunnier days. Fresh winds are still blowing, and snow is still falling, which brings a certain chill to the entire country. Yes, it might be spring but it can still be cold and will be for some time yet. So for reasons of warmth and easier breathing, get in touch and ask for a quote.
