Your home in Glencoe, Illinois, should be a safe haven from the hazards of allergy season. But this isn’t always the case. If you’re dealing with allergens inside the home as well as out, it’s time to tackle your indoor air quality. With the right IAQ products, you can dramatically improve the comfort levels in your home so allergy sufferers can breathe with ease.

Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

Maintaining optimum humidity levels throughout the changing seasons in Illinois can be a tricky task. If your home’s humidity is too high, you’ll have a welcoming environment for microbial growth. If the humidity is too low, dust, dander, and other irritants will dry up and become airborne. As a result, it cause discomfort for allergy sufferers.

A dehumidifier can help you dry your air, while a whole-home humidifier will add moisture when needed. If you typically deal with only one of these issues, choose the best system for your needs. If your home’s humidity fluctuates often, consider installing both.


A home ventilation system will pull stale air out of the house and bring fresh, filtered air in. As a result, it’ll help you get rid of allergens that can accumulate in the air, including dust and volatile organic compounds. Energy recovery ventilators offer the added bonus of recapturing the thermal energy from outgoing air and using it to pre-condition the air entering your home for optimum efficiency.

Air Cleaners

Air cleaners enhance your HVAC filtration, capturing airborne particles that your standard system filter might miss. A system like the Infinity Air Purifier GAPA can capture up to 95 percent of particles that are 0.3 microns or larger, including smoke, bacteria, pollen and dander. It’ll help you enjoy fresh, allergen-free air in your home. As a result, you’ll be able to breathe easier, sleep better and live a healthier life.

While allergen counts are high at this time of the year, they don’t have to make you suffer. If you’re interested in a new indoor air quality system, contact Roberts Heating & Air Conditioning at 847-272-5836. We’ll help you select and install the right products for optimum comfort.
