Allergies and You: Don’t Let Allergies Ruin Your Season

It’s that time of year when the temperature is warmer, the kids are getting out of school, and we’re out doing yard work or maybe even preparing for a vacation. But what if you have allergies like millions of other Americans? It can be a real drag. It affects your outdoor activities and can seemingly affect your entire life as well.  Oftentimes, you can feel like this time of year is no fun at all for you. But let me let you in on a secret, it doesn’t have to be that way. There are ways you can protect yourself from allergies and fight them off. But first, what exactly are allergies?

An allergy is characterized by the overreaction of the human immune system to a foreign protein substance (or allergen) that is either eaten, breathed into lungs, injected or touched. This overreaction often results in coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose and a scratchy throat. In more severe cases however, it can also result in rashes, lower blood pressure, difficulty breathing, asthma attacks and even death. While there is no cure for allergies, you can still protect yourself from it.

Austin Air-Standard-Sandstone-HM405For those with severe allergies, the search for a product that works well for you can often be difficult. For many allergy sufferers, finding the right allergy treatment is an absolute necessity. Fortunately, allergy machines are ideal for severe allergy and asthma sufferers. With allergy machines such as the Austin Air Allergy Machine, you can get better sleep, experience less coughing and sneezing through the reduction of airborne allergens.

Allergies are offset a lot by air quality. The poorer the air quality, the worse your allergies are likely to get. This is where air quality test kits such as the Bio Scan Indoor Air Quality Test Kit comes into play.  It screens for common contaminants such as pollen and mold by pin-pointing what problems you are having with your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

Electrostatic filters are very effective in trapping particles that would help to reduce or eliminate allergy and asthma symptoms. The Electrostatic Throw Away Filter is a cut-to-fit HEPA air filter that is designed to eliminate airborne pollutants and allergens.

Don’t you think you deserve to enjoy this time of year? You don’t have to suffer with allergies. You can fight them off with the tools you have available. Whether you purchase furnace filters, allergy machines or anything else, be sure to fight off your allergies this year and live happier this allergy season. Click on the image below to see more on how you can protect yourself against asthma and allergies.

Upgrade From Your Standard 1 Inch Filter

Did you know that you most likely have more airborne particulates in your air than the standard 1″ air filter can handle? It is true that air filters work wonders when it comes to capturing many of the particulates that circle in the air you breathe. It is also true that getting a filter that is more than the 1″ standard can totally protect you from the harmful particulates in your home or office. Filtersfast.com offers Return Grille Air Filters just for this purpose. These Return Grille Air Filters are 5″ making for an even more efficient filter when it comes to protecting your health and your environment.

We especially suggest the Filters Fast MERV 13 Return Grille Air Filter. According to Cartier King, Filtersfast.com Air Filtration Specialist certified by the National Air Filtration Association (NAFA):

“MERV 13 air filters are the highest recommended air filtration level for most residential applications.”

But why is it the highest recommended air filtrartion level? Well, a lot of it has to do with efficiency. The MERV 13 is one of the highest efficiency ratings available as the U.S. Green Building Council considers a MERV 13 rating the minimum level required to meet its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification. There are five other specific things that make this filter especially useful as well:

1.) The larger surface area and deeper pleats of the 5″ filter make it 15 times more effective at capturing airborne particles than a standard 1″ filter. You most likely have more airborne particulates in your air than your standard 1″ filter is equipped to hold. This causes excess air particles to float back out into your household air and cause allergy flare-ups, sinus issues and other health problems.

2.) When you combine this larger filter with a MERV 13 rating you have one of the market’s best filters. MERV 13 filters remove at least 90 percent of all particles 1.0 – 10.0 microns. Just how big is a micron? Look at the period at the end of this sentence. That is a huge 397 microns!

3.) The life of the filters is subject to the environment it’s installed in, but typically RAG last for 2-3x’s longer than a standard 1” filter.

4.) The foam gasket header on the filters increases particle capturing efficiency, because it helps reduce the air bypass.  Typical 1” filters obviously don’t have this feature.

5.) These only need to be changed 1x per year. They fit just like a regular 1” filter.

Apart from the MERV 13 Return Grille Air Filter, we also offer another option for you to upgrade from your standard 1″ filter:

The Odor Killer Return Grille will eliminate smoke odors, cigarette odors, pet odors, gases and other contaminants from your indoor air. Since this return grille air filter is 5″ deep compared to the standard 1″ air filter, its greater surface area and deeper pleats allow it to catch far more airborne particles and be changed less frequently.

So this season, don’t just deal with the sneezing, coughing and other symptoms associated with poor air quality. Protect your health, your environment and your wallet with Filtersfast.com.
