Allergies: The great irritants. The bane of spring and summer. The destroyers of good days. No one wants a summer ruined by allergies, but sometimes they just seem unavoidable. And once allergies attack, say goodbye to any relaxing comfort you were hoping to enjoy. But don’t lose hope! As seemingly unbeatable as allergies may be, you can take steps inside your home to keep allergies at bay. Here’s how you can survive a summer in Savannah, Georgia, without being miserable.
Indoor Air Quality
The first step in battling allergies is to take advantage of the resources you already have. The HVAC system in your home already likely has a filter made to catch many irritants, but it isn’t perfect. Filters need to be checked (and usually replaced) about once a month, or they can reduce your indoor air quality, making your allergies even worse and reducing your HVAC efficiency.
A step up from air filters, whole-home air purifiers are the big guns in combatting allergies. Air purifiers are much more efficient than standard filters in keeping irritants out of your home. Not only do they need to be replaced less often, but they often actually kill the allergen particles rather than just trapping them. Air purifiers can be installed into any regular HVAC system.
Cleanliness Is Key
When you see dust particles floating in beams of sunlight, you may wonder, “Am I breathing that in?” The answer is yes. Dust is everywhere, a natural consequence of human existence. Dust is more than just dirt; it may also contain bug pieces, mold spores, and other nasty stuff. You can minimize dust collection by keeping your home clean and opening the windows to let that fresh air push out some of the dust.
