Trying to Run From Your Allergies This Season?
If you are allergic to airborne pollutants like dust and pollen, you may find that as spring approaches, your symptoms occur more frequently. You may even be experiencing allergy symptoms every day. Why does this happen? Well, during the spring, with the snow melting and the flowers pollinating, there is more dust present in the air.
That dust gets into your respiratory system and irritates it, causing your allergies. While there are medications to treat your allergy symptoms, wouldn’t you like to avoid experiencing them altogether with good air quality? Let’s take a look at how that may be possible.
Do You Have a Cold or Are Those Allergy Symptoms?
To begin with, do you have allergies? You may be experiencing similar symptoms to allergy sufferers, such as sneezing, sniffling, coughing, wheezing, itchy and watery eyes, and headaches, but do you see how those can also be symptoms of a common cold?
During the spring you are also more likely to experience cold symptoms since the rapid change in temperatures can catch your immune system off guard. So how can you tell if you’re suffering from seasonal allergies or just a common cold?
If your symptoms last more than a few days and don’t go away after taking cold medicine, you likely have allergies. You can also call a trusted physician and ask about allergy testing and bloodwork to find out more about your allergies (or lack thereof).
When Was The Last Time You Had a Duct Cleaning?
Now, if it turns out that you do have allergies, it’s not the end of the world. There are precautions that can be taken to ensure that your spring allergies don’t hold you back all season long.
The first is to change your air filter once a month for the next three months, and then every sixty days for the rest of the year. The next step, of course, is to clean your ducts and vents.
If your HVAC unit is blowing clean air into dusty ducts and out through dusty vents, you may as well not be using a filter at all.
How Can Professional Services Help With Allergies?
Professional HVAC services are crucial during this time of the year because dust in the air isn’t just a mild annoyance. Sure, for some, spring allergy symptoms are not life-threatening, but for people with asthma, too much dust in the air could mean a severe asthma attack that could send them to the hospital.
