How Air Filtration can Ease Allergy Symptoms

October 13, 2015

Seasonal allergies in Voorhees are a pain to deal with. Whether it’s the heart of spring, summer, or fall, allergy sufferers know that the symptoms can easily affect the way you feel. Sure, symptoms can range from mild to severe, but there is one thing that all allergy sufferers may not know they can think about in order to help reduce their symptoms in their home – buy a whole-home air filtration system.

There are a variety of ‘over-the-counter’ ways to treat your allergy symptoms, but proper household air filtration can help you make sure one big piece of the puzzle is taken care of so that your home’s air is helping, not contributing to, your allergies.

Here are a few pointers Atmostemp Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning put together to help you breathe a little easier when your allergies would probably flare up:

1) Investigate the types of air filtration systems

Whole-home air cleaners and air filtration systems come in a number of shapes, sizes and technologies. Touted as top-notch, HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Filtration systems are considered ‘hospital-grade’ air cleaners, and are the perfect choice for the most severe allergy sufferers and asthmatic residents. A HEPA filter is also a good route for elderly or infant residents with respiratory problems.

2) Improve your home’s humidity

One of the more common household microbes that inflame respiratory problems is often the result of excessive humidity and mold. If your home is too humid it can become the preferred environment for microbes to grow and thrive, likely causing a host of structural problems as well as respiratory problems. Conversely, if your home lacks adequate humidity, it can cause dryness of the skin, nose and throat, leading to other problems. Fortunately, a great solution for reducing humidity can be treated with a household dehumidifier. To increase humidity for dry areas, a humidifier is the right solution.

There are a host of humidification options from Atmostemp Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning that are already designed to operate best with your current heating and cooling system, making it easy to receive the benefits that proper air filtration can provide.

3) Keep pollen outside of your home

Sure, it seems like common sense, but there are a couple ways you can easily keep pollen from finding its way in without you thinking twice about it.

  • Shoes – make a habit of taking off your shoes when you first enter your home so you aren’t tracking pollen throughout the house.
  • Clothes – if you’ve been mowing the lawn or taking part in any outdoor activities, it’s possible that you have pollen on them. If you plan on being indoors for a while, consider changing your clothes.
  • Shower – if you’ve been outside for an extended period of time, consider showering once you come inside. Pollen can be left on your clothing and get in your hair and on any exposed skin.

Seasonal allergies in Voorhees can bring some unpleasant symptoms with them, but they aren’t anything that a great air filtration system can’t take on. Best of all, estimates for the installation of a new air filtration don’t cost you anything.
