According to Allergy UK, around four in ten Brits will suffer from allergies at some point in their lives. Although many of these allergies will be to food products and materials, a lot of the time, allergens are airborne. Pollen, dust and other irritants can cause severe reactions and make sufferers’ lives miserable.
If you suffer from hay fever, or if you experience allergies to other airborne pollutants, the summer months in particular can be a challenge. Open windows mean that pollen and other irritants can easily find their way into your home. This can cause serious reactions and make life a challenge for sufferers everywhere.
Something that can help to alleviate symptoms and ease suffering is an air-conditioning system. Helping to improve the standard of air in your home and make your interior a more pleasant place to be, an air-conditioning unit could make a big difference to your quality of life.
Filtering the air you breathe
One of the main ways in which air-conditioning helps to ease allergies is by removing pollutants and allergens from the atmosphere. As air passes through an air-conditioning unit, many common irritants are removed by the unit’s filtering system. This can help to minimise the amount of pollen and other allergens finding their way into your property. If you suffer from hay fever or another type of allergy, this can dramatically reduce the degree of reaction that you suffer when you’re in your home.
When selecting an air-conditioning system, tell your supplier you want a unit that efficiently filters air before circulating it around your property. This will help to ensure you find the perfect air-conditioner for your home and your family.
Maintaining a set temperature
Although allergens are present in the atmosphere throughout the year, it’s during the summer months that the majority of pollen and other irritants are released into the atmosphere. When the weather warms up, a lot of people open their windows to cool their homes and let fresh air circulate.
However, although opening windows can help to maintain a pleasant temperature, it also lets a wide range of allergens into the home. These allergens can easily trigger attacks and reactions and make life unpleasant for allergy sufferers.
If you have an air-conditioning unit installed in your property, you won’t have to open the window to cool your home. Instead, you can simply flick the switch on your air-conditioning unit and you’ll be able to enjoy clean, cool air at any time.
If you’re allergic to airborne allergens, installing air-conditioning in your property could dramatically improve your quality of life. Find out more by getting in touch with a member of our team today.
