With the beauty of spring flowers and Texas, showers come seasonal allergies. The allergy season in North Texas lasts for 10 months in a year.
From February to April, it is tree-pollen season. April, May, and June bring out the grass pollen. Labor day to Halloween is weed pollen time.
And then it is mountain cedar in the winter. The only break experts say is from July Fourth to Labor Day, kind of those 100-degree days. And while over-the-counter medicines may help, there are other ways to aid in air quality.
Indoor air quality is important for comfort and health reasons. Living with very dry air can irritate asthma and allergy symptoms and lead to dry noses, sore throats, and other health concerns.
Often staying indoors is worse for your allergies than the great outdoors. Your home is filled with items that can elevate symptoms – like fabric-covered furniture and pillows, carpet, tightly-sealed windows, and warm, damp spaces. Indoor pollution can be much greater than outdoor pollution, especially if you have family members who smoke or have pets. And because most of us spend a lot of time inside, it’s essential to take inventory to determine where allergens are building up.
What Can People Do to Help Combat Seasonal Allergies?
You can replace the moisture in the air and improve the quality of air in your home by adding a whole-house humidifier to your home and checking furnace filters more often. Investing in an air-purification system – The PureAir™ S air purification system, part of Healthy Climate Solutions™, removes over 99% of the virus that causes COVID-19* from the air**, as well as even smaller viruses, bacteria, and fungal spores. And unlike other air purification products on the market, the PureAir S system doesn’t produce ozone as a by-product and even works actively to reduce this known lung irritant in your home’s air***. This system is easy to install and will likely cost less than $100 a year on your energy bill. Denali is offering a FREE Healthy Home Assessment so give us a call today to schedule yours.
