When symptoms of asthma or allergies flare up, they can leave you feeling helpless. But there are steps you can take to eliminate reactions and lessen the intensity of the symptoms. Installing air filters in your heating and air conditioning units will remove the harmful irritating particles that cause asthmatic and allergic reactions.
If you suffer from asthma or severe allergies, the best action you can take against is cleaning the air you breathe. At any given moment, the air in your home can be contaminated with several airborne allergens and irritants.
Pollen allergens are launched into the air by trees, flowers, and plants. Also lingering indoors are dust mites, which are microscopic bugs that live in carpet, upholstered furniture, and linens. Mold and mildew caused by ambient humidity also can be present.
All of these particles will exacerbate allergic and asthmatic symptoms. More frightening is that these airborne toxins and particles have a cumulative effect on your health. The more one is exposed to them, the greater effect they will have. So, the more you allow yourself to breathe polluted air, allergic and asthmatic symptoms will be more intense and more frequent.
It is nearly impossible to eliminate the sources of pollen allergens and dust mites, so your best course of action in eliminating the threat of these airborne particles is to install efficient air filters in your home's heating and air conditioning units. An efficient filter will remove over 90 percent of harmful airborne particles.
The installation of air filters is a quick and inexpensive way to improve the quality of the air you breathe. By removing harmful allergens and particles from the air, the filters will help eliminate the painful and irritating symptoms of asthma and allergies. You will benefit in the short term by breathing more easily. In the long term, you will benefit from no longer being bombarded with allergens and irritants.
