How to Shield Your Body and Your Wallet From Seasonal Allergy Symptoms

4 minute read

Can’t catch a break from your seasonal allergy symptoms? You’re not alone. Each year, it feels as if the allergy season starts earlier, lasts longer, and impacts more than the nation’s chronic allergy and asthma sufferers. Turns out, this feeling is fact—and climate change is to blame.

The consistent rise in temperature year after year has led to longer pollen seasons and record pollen counts. In fact, a new study shows that our current pollen season starts 20 days earlier, lasts 10 days longer, and brings about 21% more pollen than in 1990! If our allergy seasons have evolved this much in the last 33 years, just imagine what the next 33 (or even fewer) years might bring about. While there isn’t much that can be done to turn back time or halt climate change’s progression, one thing still remains in our control: our homes.

Now more than ever, we rely on our homes to protect us—offering a safe haven from the outside world (be it viruses, weather events, or pollution). But with the outside world experiencing such rapid change, it’s hard not to question: Should we seek to adapt our homes in tandem to maximize our health and safety? The answer is ‘yes,’ and the solutions are simple.

Treating the Symptoms of Allergies, Not the Problem

Oftentimes, we default to treating our seasonal allergy symptoms alone in order to seek relief.

By using quick fixes, like medications, to treat symptoms, allergy sufferers only benefit from temporary relief, or risk prolonging their misery as side effects, like drowsiness or dizziness, start to set in.

Temporary relief isn’t sustainable for your body or your wallet. In fact, allergy sufferers spend up to $16,000 on treatments in their lifetime! With forecasted longer, stronger allergy seasons ahead, costly and temporary symptom relief just won’t cut it! It’s time we shift our focus and take key steps toward treating the problem, not the symptom, in the one place we can control: our safe havens. Where can you start? With Healthy Air, of course!

Treating the Problem: Key Steps to Reduce Seasonal Allergy Symptoms at Home 

Poor and unhealthy Indoor Air Quality is often the biggest problem in your safe haven. From allergies and odors to mold and viruses, the air inside your home can threaten your family’s health and safety. But, by treating the problem with AprilAire whole-house Healthy Air solutions, your family can benefit from long-term seasonal allergy symptom relief and protection against the future of climate change.

With Healthy Air, you can:

  • Create a safe indoor environment for the asthma and allergy sufferers in your life by clearing the air of seasonal allergens, like pollen, and everyday allergens, like dust or dander.
  • Experience relief without worrying about unwanted side effects! Allergy sufferers aren’t the only ones who benefit here. Breathing Healthy Air not only helps safeguard your air from pollutants, but it has a positive impact on your sleeping habits, stress levels, and cognitive function.
  • Increase the value of your home. Over time, your commitment to your home’s Indoor Air Quality and accompanying energy efficiency can positively impact the rate at which your home sells and even improve overall value.

It’s clear: Focusing your energy on treating the problem rather than the symptom is a much better investment than the quick fix allergy treatments that only offer temporary relief.
