Allergy season can be intense in Mount Pleasant, Texas. These extra airborne irritants can be extremely bothersome to residents with sensitive lungs. Keeping your indoor air quality level high during allergy season can relieve many of the associated symptoms. Here are our top two ways to improve your indoor air quality and protect your family from the worst of their allergy symptoms:
Install an Air Purifier
Compact and quiet, air purifiers are a great way to enhance your indoor air quality. You can position these pieces of technology anywhere you like in your home. They work by forcing the room’s air through extra fine filters to continuously remove any allergens or irritants from the air. Air purifiers are useful year round, especially if you have someone with asthma in your home, but they’re especially handy during allergy season.
Place the air purifiers in the rooms that you use most frequently to get the best possible results. Change the filters regularly. Besides pollen, they can also help clear the air of pet dander, dust, and other contaminants, which can all decrease your indoor air quality.
Change the Air Filter
Regularly replacing your air conditioner’s filter should be a part of your maintenance, but you should consider replacing it more regularly during allergy season. Since the amount of debris in the air increases dramatically, that means that your filter’s workload multiplies. Replacing your air filter more frequently can help keep it clear and improve your indoor air quality.
You may also want to invest in a higher end filter during allergy season. While moderately rated HEPA filters are fine for most of the year, a higher rated filter can help keep those extra irritants out of your home. There are reusable ones that you can wash, which helps cut costs.
