Zoning allows heating or cooling of different rooms/places at different temperatures even though using the central heating/cooling system i.e Ductwork.

Are Humidifiers effective in combating Pollen Allergy?

Pollen Allergy, how that occurs? Well, if you're aware of nature's wonderful system of reproduction for plants, you already know what Pollens and Pollen allergy is but in case you don't, no worries, we're just about to explain;  

Do you feel ''Love is in the air'' actually happening in Spring? You must because whether or not love is in the air in mid-February, it surely is in the mid-March as the Spring takes the first refreshing yawn. The flowers of Plants and trees release a powdery substance in Winters for the purpose of fertilisation. That powdery substance is called Pollen. The pollen grains are carried to other plants and trees through air or through insects that feed on flower nectar, for example, the honey bee. Pollens that are carried through insects do not cause any allergies, however, the pollens that are carried through air cause allergies like sneezing, running nose, fever etc. Although it seems ordinary, the allergy can go severe for some p…

Black Furnace Filters - Is that a problem?

The function of Furnace Filters It's a cycle that goes on and on and on. The hot air from the Furnace get blown up to the rooms and the cooler air comes back through return air duct back to the Furnace to treatment. This process continues and per day the air circulates through the ductwork approximately 5-7 times in Winters. But as it passes through the Ducts it also has to pass through the Filters that are placed at the supply ducts and sometimes at the return ducts too. The purpose of Furnace Filters is to trap the air pollutants, that includes dust and debris, pet dander, skin scratch and airborne particles. So the Ductwork basically does not only provide treated air for indoor comfort but also makes the provision of healthier air possible by trapping the unhealthy particulates and Filters help in that process.
