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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
