While Kansas City was spared from a harsh winter this year, we aren’t going to be so lucky during allergy season. That mild winter that we all enjoyed allowed trees to pollinate earlier than normal, which caused allergy season to begin earlier than usual. Local allergy experts say this year’s allergy season is one of the worst on record.
In addition to stocking up on allergy medications and nasal sprays, consider installing a whole home filtration system as part of your crusade against seasonal allergies. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation, EPA, and American Lung Association all recommend air filtration for people with allergies and asthma as part of a comprehensive strategy for managing allergies.
Installing a whole home air filtration system is the most efficient way to filter your household air. It drastically minimizes the allergens and irritants in the air in your home by as much as 99 percent. And, unlike a portable air cleaner, which takes up space and only cleans the air in one room, a whole home air filtration system removes polluted air throughout your entire home and there is no extra equipment sitting around. For maximum benefits, change the filter as recommended.
