Spring Allergies and the Importance of Indoor Air Quality

Spring is upon us and as we open up our windows to allow in the refreshing spring air, we are also giving entrance to all of the pollen and allergens that come with it.

Springtime can be a nightmare for those who struggle to fight off spring allergies. But, closing up our homes is not the answer. There are several options available to help clean the air you are breathing in your home of spring allergens and other unwanted contaminants. Here are 3 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality.

According to AAFA.org, allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nose) affects up to 30% of the population. The most common allergy triggers include tree, grass and weed pollen, mold spores, and dust mites.

Suffer from a runny nose and scratchy eyes? You are not alone! The FDA estimates that there are approximately 36 million people in the US who suffer from seasonal allergies.

The pollen that you are cursing every spring is not the real cause of your discomfort. Your body believes the pollen in the air is actually nasty mold or dust mites. It release histamine to fight off those air contaminants. Histamine is a natural chemical that your body’s immune system uses to fight off mold and dust mites with. The histamine causes the inflammation that is making you sneeze, sniffle, and feel all around poorly.

What Type of Air Quality System is Right for You?

Our Breathe Easy System features a high-performance return grille media air filter designed to fit in the same space as a standard 1″ return grille. It provides filtration up to 15 times more effective than a standard 1″ fiberglass furnace filter* and traps.

How do I choose an indoor air quality product?

Everyone’s household is different. When you’re trying to determine the best indoor air quality product for your home, there are a lot of factors to consider. For instance, do you or does someone in your family have a low tolerance for pet dander and other allergens?

We can do an air quality test & inspection, during which the Baggett team will thoroughly inspect your home for specific pollutant sources, provide an affordable way to measure chemical levels, and present you with an effective action plan.
