For many people, the arrival of spring is an event to celebrate.
And then there are those who suffer from spring allergies and asthma. For these folks, winter often represents a blessed reprieve from the onslaught of pollen and other allergens during the warmer, more humid seasons of the year.
Thankfully, modern technology has invented ways to purify and clean your indoor air to keep allergens to a minimum even during peak allergy seasons.
Often manufacturers will only offer discounts on this technology during the off-season, when sales are slower. But here at Clean Air Solutions, we like to give our biggest discounts now, when you need what we offer the most!
In this post, find out how to save $100 on services and products that will keep your air clean, pure, and allergen-free all year long.
Whole Home HEPA System
“HEPA” is an acronym that means high efficiency particulate air. This is a mouthful, but it really just means “the best air filter out there.”
A HEPA filter can filter out 99.97 percent of all airborne allergens, pollutants and toxins, even those as small as 0.3 microns. How small is 0.3 microns? Take a look at a single strand of your own hair. Now imagine that that single hair is 300 times smaller than it is.
With this level of efficiency, it is little wonder that people who install HEPA-rated filters report fewer allergies and better overall health all year long.
There are several different ways to use HEPA filters in your home. One is in your vacuum cleaner. Another way is to use HEPA filtration units in rooms where allergens are more commonly found (like the bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen).
But the hands-down best way to use a HEPA filter is to install a whole-home HEPA system to purify the air throughout your home.

Whole Home UV Filter
Ultraviolet is a type of light ray that is most commonly positioned as something that can cause skin cancer if you stay out in the sun too long.
But UV light rays also have potent healing and purification powers when used in other ways. Today’s UV filtration systems can destroy germs, viruses, bacteria, fungi, allergens, pollen, VOCs, and other airborne toxins. These UV-based systems can be used alone or in combination with other filtration and purification systems.

Whole Home Humidifier
The Ontario Lung Association (OLA) currently recommends aiming for indoor air humidity levels to stay below 50 percent.
Too little humidity can cause an increase in illness because respiratory passages become too dry to fend off allergens and germs when they are inhaled. Too much humidity can also cause illness, exacerbating bacteria and fungi growth.
A humidifier is one tool to help keep the humidity levels inside your home at optimal levels all year long, regardless of what is going on in the air outside.
There are many ways to use a humidifier. If you have a family member who is especially prone to allergies or asthma, you may have a portable humidifier that you turn on at night in their room so they stay hydrated while they sleep.
But one of the best ways to ensure a proper balance of indoor air humidity is to install a whole home humidification system that works with your air conditioner and furnace to regulate humidity levels inside your home all year long.

Professional Air Duct Cleaning
If you could pick just one area of your home to have professionally cleaned, which area would you pick? If you are like most homeowners today, you probably just thought “the kitchen!” or “the garage!” and you didn’t even give a thought to your indoor air duct system.
This is because you can’t see your indoor air ducts without making a supreme effort to do so, since they are hidden behind your drywall.
Because of this, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that most Canadian homeowners have never had their air duct system cleaned out.
But not cleaning your indoor air duct system is essentially like using your vacuum cleaner all day, every day, and never changing the bag or the filter. Over time, the dust, debris, allergens, germs, and toxins build up to the point where running the vacuum simply disperses these trapped toxins rather than sucking up any additional debris.
If you have never had your indoor air ducts cleaned—or you simply don’t have any record of whether the previous homeowner had this service performed before you bought the home—spring is the perfect time to schedule an indoor air duct cleaning.
