During the summer, flowers are blooming, the temperatures are warmer, and allergens abound in the air. Your home is meant to be a haven from the elements, including airborne allergens, but it can’t do that if you have poor air quality control. If your home’s air quality is not properly regulated, summer can be especially difficult if you suffer from allergies to mold, pollen, dust, and other substances.
Types of Allergens
Poor-quality air contains various pollutants, including dust. Any dust you find in your home is likely composed of numerous substances. A single flake can include dust mites, mold spores, bits of dead bugs, flecks of dander, and a number of other ingredients that are best left unmentioned. Most of these contribute toward allergic reactions in people sensitive to them. A few of the allergens you may find in your home are described below:
If someone in your home has allergies, the presence of allergens will generally lead to irritated nasal passages and eyes, runny nose, congestion, coughing, and wheezing.
Air Quality Control
Your home’s HVAC system is the key to controlling air quality and eliminating allergens. When it is functioning properly, it filters allergens out of the air and reduces allergic reactions. On the other hand, if the system is malfunctioning or the filters are clogged, airborne allergens abound.
