It’s springtime! As the days are warming up and you’re turning your air conditioning on, you may begin to notice your allergies more than usual. There’s a good reason for this.
Air conditioning units typically operate in closed environments and recycle the air to keep a home cool and comfortable. However, this recirculation of air can also recirculate pollen, dust, and other air contaminants, which creates an unhealthy environment for people who suffer from allergies.
Luckily, there are some tricks homeowners can use to reduce the allergen content in their house. Follow these tips to relieve the allergy sufferers in your residence:
- Have your air ducts professionally cleaned
- Change your air filters regularly
- Keep your windows closed and fans off
- Clean your household linens regularly
These are just a few examples of what you can be doing to purify the air indoors this allergy season. For more information, check out additional allergy-proofing tips from WebMD’s Allergy Health Center.
