This time of year not only brings big changes in the weather, but it also brings dreaded seasonal allergies. No matter the season, allergies can greatly impact your comfort and health. Symptoms always range from mild to severe but no matter how strong your allergies hit this year, allergy sufferers aren’t always aware of an easy way to alleviate their symptoms in their home – investing in a whole-home air filtration system.

Proper household air filtration is essential to cleaning your indoor air and helping alleviate your allergies. You can try allergy medicine and other ‘over-the-counter’ treatments, but why not attack the root of the problem? Here are some in-home tips from Andrew DiPietro’s Climate Zone that will help you breathe easier as the seasons change:

  1. Increase your home’s humidity
    Mold is one of the most common household microbes that contribute to allergies and other respiratory problems. If your home is too humid, it provides the perfect environment for mold to fester and grow and may even cause some structural problems to your home. Too little humidity can also be harmful because it can cause skin, throat and nose dryness and lead to other health issues. Proper humidification is essential to keeping your home at the ideal humidity level and the best way to do that is through a household humidifier. They can be set up with Climate Zone right with your current heating and cooling system, easy to implement and extremely beneficial to filtering air in your home.
  2. Keep pollen out of your home
    No one ever blatantly tries to bring pollen into their homes, but there are some sneaky ways that allergens can enter your home that you may not know about:

    • Make sure to remove your shoes before you come into your home, especially during this time of changing seasons, to ensure that you don’t track pollen into your house.
    • If you’ve been outside for a while, mowing the lawn or doing other outdoor activities, consider changing your clothes when you go back inside and wash your clothes that are likely to have pollen on them.
    • In addition to changing clothes after extended periods of time outdoors, a shower could be another great way to get the pollen off your hair and exposed skin.
  3. Invest in an air filtration system
    Whole-home air filtration systems are really the best way to not only reduce the allergens in your home, but keep your air clean all year-long. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Filtration systems are the best solution for the most severe allergy sufferers and residents with already existing respiratory problems, but there are plenty of different systems in a variety of shapes, sizes and technologies. Our experts at Climate Zone can help you find the perfect system for your needs.

You shouldn’t have to suffer, especially in the comfort of your own home. Taking a look at your indoor air quality could ease a lot of your seasonal suffering and let you fully enjoy an otherwise beautiful time of year. The home comfort professionals at Climate Zone are ready to help you keep those itchy eyes and sneezes at bay with an air filtration system.

When homeowners think of air filtration they’re usually thinking about the filter they are changing in their HVAC system. Of course, traditional air filters are an important piece of the healthy air puzzle. It’s smart to get into the habit of checking your filter every month, typically changing it out every two months. There are quite a few different filters available. We recommend high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters because they utilize hospital-grade technology to clean your air to the highest levels possible.

Giving your home the best indoor air quality starts with traditional filters, but it doesn’t end there. Lennox® has the industry’s most effective air purifiers and their PureAirTM air purification system is the only system to combat all three classes of contaminants. These contaminants are: particles (dust, pet dander), biological (mold, pollen, dust mites) and gas phase (cleaning supplies, air fresheners and pesticides).

Your forced air heating and cooling system moves air throughout your entire house, this is the ideal place to combat air containments and that’s exactly how our air purification systems work. Our air filtration systems can be incorporated into almost any HVAC system. Along with helping your allergies and keeping you healthier, it will also keep your home smelling fresh. So that fish you fried last night isn’t lingering around the next day. Our systems purify your air without producing ozone, which is a lung irritant.
