Air purifiers for seasonal allergies
Seasonal allergies affect millions. Spring makes a lot of people happy since there are blooming flowers and trees.
For someone with seasonal allergies, this can be a miserable time of the year. Sneezing, congestion, a runny nose, and other inconvenient symptoms can ruin a beautiful time of the year.
At times, you have to stay indoors or take measures like removing your clothes and showering to remove the pollen.
The good news is some specially designed air purifiers may help reduce the symptoms associated with seasonal allergies. Air purifiers use a filtering system to remove harmful particles from indoor spaces, allergens, particles, and dust for seasonal allergies.
Indoor allergies can be just as miserable as outdoor allergies. Dust mites like to populate bedding, mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets, or curtains. Pollen, dander, and smoke cling to the walls as well.
If you are dealing with indoor allergies, perhaps you might want to look into an air purifier. Air purifiers use a filtering system to remove harmful particles from indoor spaces, particularly allergens, smoke, mold particles, and dust mites.
The health benefits of allergy air purifiers include:
- Reducing the risk of infection or severity of the disease
- Lessens night-time allergies and asthma attacks
- Strengthens the immune system
- Eases coughing and sneezing
- Reduces dry mouth, snoring, and a runny nose
- Sounder sleep
High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are needed to trap large, medium, and small particles floating in the air. There is also the high-efficiency gas absorption (HEGA) filter for gaseous pollutants like cigarettes. HEGA is a carbon cloth filter.

There are other fine choices out there. Depending on your needs, the prices can run from $100 to $1,000. How to choose is based on what size room or house you are trying to purify, along with the types of pollutants you are trying to filter. Also, take into consideration the room size, noise level, and programming features.
There are portable and permanent air purifiers. The permanent units are generally a part of the HVAC and only work when the HVAC is on. Portable air filters are measured by clean air delivery rate (CADR), and the ratings are calculated by the size of the particles the unit filters and in what size room you can use it in. The larger the room, the more CADR rating that you need.
Clearing the Air
To help with your seasonal allergies and to avoid asthma triggers, here are a few tips that could help clear the air:
- Use an air purifier with carbon and Super HEPA filter to remove triggers that might be airborne
- Change the filter in your furnace regularly to reduce dust in your ducting
- Clean with a sealed vacuum that won’t redistribute dust
- Reduce your chemical use by switching to more natural cleaning products or ones you can make at home.
