It’s Fall, y’all! Take time to walk outside, open the windows and enjoy the Autumn air!
…Except if you have seasonal allergies. If you have allergies, your Fall escapades can come with a side of sneezing and gobs of tissue. If you suffer from those pesky seasonal Atlanta allergies, you’re not alone.
According to Atlanta Allergy and Asthma, the main culprit this time of year is Ragweed, and it’s hard to avoid. It grows nearly everywhere in the Midwest and along the East Coast. Ragweed pollen is very light and can easily travel far by the wind. It tends to be the worst during mid-day.
Other allergen triggers besides weeds are tree pollen, mold, and yes, even Man’s BF can bring on runny noses and watery eyes. Much like Ragweed, trees release pollen into the air that travels through the wind. When the leaves begin to fall off the trees and compost, then you have to worry about mold, which releases spores into the air that can cause allergic reactions to those sensitive to it. The most common types of mold in Atlanta are Alternaria, Aspergillus, Claudosporium and Penicillium.
Those tiny pollen particles, mold spores and pet dander get sucked into your home through your heating and cooling unit. Your regular ‘ol air filter alone won’t be able to catch all of it, so installing an air purifier can help.
Air purifiers clean the air by using a filtration system that eliminates much of the allergens and bacteria from the air inside your home.
If you have allergies, asthma or any other breathing problems, an air purifier in your home can help you breathe easier all year long. Coolray offers whole-home air purification systems that can eliminate up to 96% of germs, pollen, bacteria and even cold and flu viruses.
