Breathe easier with better air quality

Breathe easier with better air quality

People with allergies and asthma know the importance of avoiding things that trigger your symptoms. But what if one of those triggers is your home environment? Choosing the right heat pump can remove common allergens and purify the air.

How it works

The magic is in the cleverly designed air filters and temperature controls that remove airborne allergens such as pollen, fine dust particles and dust mites, as well as reducing humidity that causes mould. These filters are effective at trapping most microscopic airborne particles and absorbing and deodorising household smells and pet odours. Resulting in improved air quality and leaving your home feeling fresh and clean. 

Regulating the temperature of your home 

Reducing humidity in your home will combat mould, a common allergen for people with respiratory conditions. A heat pump enables you to regulate your air temperature all year round and generate good air flow around your home. Giving you cleaner air to breathe and keeping mould growth at bay. 

How do you know which products are allergy and asthma friendly?

Identifying which products are ideal for asthma and allergy suffers is easy with the Sensitive Choice blue butterfly badge.  The blue butterfly is a badge given to products that have been independently tested and approved by the Sensitive Choice New Zealand Programme. The badge shows allergy and asthma suffers that these products could be beneficial and enable them to live better with reduced allergen triggers.

There are three main heat pump brands in New Zealand with the Sensitive Choice approval – Fujitsu, Daikin and Panasonic. Here at Degree we are proud to supply and install these three brands.
