Expert advice to allay winter allergies

Many people may already be aware that indoor allergy symptoms peak during the winter season, but not everyone is always informed on what they can do to minimize the effects.

The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) told HealthDay News that keeping humidity below 55 percent can significantly help alleviate dust mite issues, as too much moisture in the air is conducive to their growth. In addition, the ACAAI recommends changing furnace filters every three months and keeping pets out of bedrooms. Open windows or turn on a fan when showering, and make sure to clean and dust frequently.

Another way to tackle all these issues at once is to invest in an air purifying system for your home.

AllerAir air purifiers contain activated carbon in addition to HEPA filters to effectively remove a full range of airborne contaminants, including dust, mold, pet dander, gas, smoke, pollen and chemicals. Activated carbon is the most effective method for removing chemicals, gases and odors, and it's trusted by hospitals. Meanwhile, HEPA filters are equipped to filter 99.97 percent of all airborne particles.
