How to Avoid Asthma Triggers in Your Home

Preventing the Problem

When a person with asthma has an attack it can be a very devastating and frightening experience.  Many asthma attacks happen while the individual is at home.  There are certain measures that can be taken to help prevent the onset of an asthma attack.  Most people are aware of the fact that the home of an asthmatic should be free of dust and powdery substances that may fill the air.  It is also important to keep the maintenance in order on heating and air conditioning units.  Proper maintenance is vital to ensure that the units operate efficiently.  Clean air is crucial for those who suffer with asthma.

Finding the Solution

Fire N Ice Heating and Cooling is a family owned, and family operated company that has provided services to the residents of Illinois since 1977.  They will inspect your home heating and a/c unit, then explain the procedure needed for making your home an asthma preventive environment.  They will schedule regular maintenance to assure you that your home is safe, and the air is clean.  You can check your filters regularly and replace them easily.  Have all of the ducts cleaned to make sure that dirt and debris will not interfere with the quality of air.  This needs to be done at the change of every season.

Checking the outside doors and windows for leaks is also a great asthma preventive measure.  If leaks will allow the cold of winter or the heat of summer to come in, it will allow dirt and dust to seep through also.  If you live in the Illinois area, keep your ducts, vents, and units maintained with the services provided by the Fire N Ice Heating and Cooling Company.  Avoid asthma attacks by having clean air flowing through the home.  Having a humidifier on hand to work along with clean air from properly maintained units will also help to avoid asthma triggers at home.
