Allergy Air Filters

There are air filters available on the market that can help relieve your allergy symptoms. Allergy air filters help remove the particulates and fumes that trigger your allergic reactions. If your allergies are bad, allergy-free air conditioner air filters may be what you are looking for. An allergy-free furnace air filter would also be valuable for allergy and asthma sufferers.

Allergies are one of the most common reasons that people visit their physician each year. With houses being built tighter and with more offgassing by normal household items like building supplies, furniture, and cleaning supplies, is it no wonder the incidence in allergies is rising in children and adults each year? Allergies by themselves are usually just a nuisance, but the health conditions that become exacerbated by an allergy can be fatal. That is why many homeowners are installing allergy air filters to help cut down on the severity and frequency of allergy symptoms.

Some of the more common allergy triggers are dust, pollen, pet dander (especially cat), mold, and dust mites. In normal people these pollutants cause no problems, but if you are allergic to one or all of them, you may find that you spend a great deal of time with watery eyes, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, or itching. While these symptoms may be bothersome, they are not life threatening. However if you have asthma as well, these triggers could cause a severe asthma attack, which can cost you money in medical costs and could even possibly be fatal. Allergy-free air conditioner air filters can help clean the air inside of your home.

Be sure you research your allergy air filters options to make sure that you are getting one that is highly efficient at removing particulates from the air. Otherwise, you are wasting your money. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are an excellent choice for homeowners or family members who suffer from allergies. This high efficiency air filter was created to remove atomic particles from the air during the creation of the atomic bomb. They are 99.97% effective at removing particulates that come into contact with the filter, so after World War II they were declassified for business and home use. Many HEPA air filters are also used with other technology to help get your air as clean as possible. HEPA air filters are widely used in areas that must be clean like hospitals, clean rooms, and laboratories.

Allergy air filters are not going to completely cure you of your allergies, but they can go a long way to help decrease the number of allergy attacks you have. Keeping your home clean and surfaces wiped will also help your allergies. Your home is where you spend a great deal of time so it is important that you keep it as "trigger free" as possible.

Allergy-free air conditioner air filters, and furnace too, can be found in most home improvement stores and online. Use your research to determine which air filter is best for the particular needs of you and your family and your home. Analyze the particular allergy triggers that your family has to ensure that you have chosen the best allergy air filter for your particular needs. You can make a difference in how often and how severe your allergy attacks are, and breathe easier for your efforts.
