February is here, and that means we are getting closer to that beautiful spring weather. The changes of the seasons also bring changes in pollen count. If you suffer from seasonal allergies you’re probably no stranger in dealing with the constant sneezing, watery eyes, coughing, and congestion. What’s the point of having amazing weather if your allergies have you feeling too miserable to enjoy it?
Lee’s Air has are a few tips you to prevent allergies from bringing you down and keep you enjoying your day comfortably:
Step One: Change your air filter
This is one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to deal with nasty allergy symptoms. Having a dirty air filter means that airborne allergens are free and able to enter your home. For the most effective change, choose a high-quality air filter with a MERV rating between 9-12.
Step Two: Try to keep your doors and windows closed
In the year’s early months alder, juniper and other cedars begin pollinating heavily. All of these plants are known to cause allergenic reactions. The refreshing weather might tempt you to open up your windows across the house, but this is only going to allow all that pollen inside and flare up your allergies. Let your air filter do the work at keeping those allergens out by keeping the house closed.
Step Three: UV light installation
If you’re always suffering from constant severe allergies and nothing else seems to be working, consider installing a UV light system in your HVAC unit. These UV light systems help eliminate up to 99% of allergy causing bacteria, viruses and mold before they can enter through into your house. The technicians at Lee’s Air make installation of these UV light systems quick and easy. You’ll quickly realize that having one of these systems installed into your unit will make a world of difference! It’s an investment that will get you and your family living comfortably and allergy-free.
