Florida continues to see record-breaking allergy seasons in both severity and length. Allergy season in Florida is unique compared to the rest of the United States because instead of experiencing higher allergy rates in the spring and fall, allergies are present throughout the year, making it a perennial allergy state. One of the best ways to prevent being affected by allergies is to improve your indoor air quality.
To best handle your allergies, it is essential to understand that different seasons will make different allergens more prominent, with February, March, and April being especially rough due to pollinating trees. For the most part, allergies will consist of:
Depending on how intensely allergies affect you, you may need to visit a doctor for prescription medication or over-the-counter recommendations. Other steps to keep in mind are:
Allergies affect people differently considering their allergen levels and exposure, but some common symptoms of allergies include:
One of the most effective ways to help combat pollen and allergies is by improving your indoor air quality. At Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric we are dedicated to helping you find the solution that works best for you and your family.
Often, we overlook our ducts without realizing that even if they are functioning correctly, they may be trapping in allergens. This means that they will continue to build up along the duct work and blow into the home, causing prolonged exposure. Contacting Art Plumbing, AC & Electric for duct cleaning will not only improve your air quality but also diagnose any possible leaks in your ducts.
While taking precautions like keeping windows and doors closed as often as possible will help keep many allergens out, pollen and other allergens attach to our bodies and clothes. Even in the short time we enter and exit our homes, it’s enough time for pollen to come in.
Indoor air quality systems can help to remove the pollutants that come into your home and improve your overall air quality. One of the most popular options is to install HEPA filters that can remove up to 99.97% of particles that go through the filters. Our qualified technicians can easily install HEPA filters into the ductwork of your home.
Another option would be air purifiers. By pulling the air in your home through a series of fans, the purifiers trap pollutants and allergens then circulate the clean air back into your home. Purifiers are great for collecting larger allergen particles but are less beneficial when it comes to smaller particles that attach themselves to objects in your home.
Allergy seasons are not any fun, but by taking proper precautions and calling Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric, you can find the best solution to improve your indoor air quality before it starts.
