How an Air Cleaner Installation Can Help Your Seasonal Allergies

April 5, 2013

Spring, it’s a wonderful time of the year! Flowers are blooming, temperatures are rising, and the days are longer—what’s not to love? Well, if you’re one of the 40 million Americans suffering from nasal allergies, spring (and the seasonal allergies that come with it) can be one of the most unpleasant of seasons.

The Asthma and Allergy  Foundation of America (AAFA) says that springtime allergy triggers—mainly tree pollen—cause symptoms such as itchy and runny nose, nasal and sinus congestion, repeated sneezing, watery eyes, inflamed sinuses, and, in extreme cases, difficulty breathing due to all these symptoms.

Many of our customers in the Cincinnati, Ohio area suffer from seasonal allergies, and they don’t realize there are some in-home solutions available to them! In fact, coping with seasonal allergies can be as easy as installing an air cleaner in your home at the start of spring.

Why Should You Install an Air Cleaner to Ease Your Seasonal Allergies?

Air cleaners and air purifiers are designed to remove common indoor pollutants and particulates such as pollen, dust, combustion gases, tobacco smoke, pesticides, and chemicals from the air in your home. According to the EPA, the best way to address the risk of harmful indoor air pollutants is to control or eliminate the sources and to ventilate a home with clean outdoor air. Unfortunately, ventilating your home by doing things such as opening windows can be counterproductive for those who suffer from seasonal allergies like pollen. That’s why an air cleaner installation can be so helpful!

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, a HEPA air cleaner is probably the best choice for you and your home. These air cleaners can effectively capture the highest percentage of airborne particles of any air purification technology available today.

Many HEPA air cleaners have efficiency ratings of 99.7 percent and are able to trap particles as small as 0.3 microns—meaning HEPA air cleaners can trap anything from dust to dust mites, from smoke to pollen, from pet dander to airborne viruses. They can remove just about any unwanted particle from the air.
