Will an Air Purifier Help Relieve Seasonal Allergies?

What exactly are seasonal allergies? Commonly known as “hay fever” or “allergic rhinitis,” seasonal allergies result from conditions that usually occur at certain times of the year. These allergies typically occur when trees, weeds and grasses release pollen grains. Unfortunately, these pollen grains can cling to your clothes and even your hair. To help improve the quality of air indoors, most people invest in high-quality air purifiers.

What are the Symptoms Associated with Seasonal Allergies?

Before investing in air purifiers and forced air heating systems, it’s important to understand what seasonal allergies are. Here are some of the known symptoms associated with these conditions:

  • Irritation of the eyes, ears, nose and throat
  • Nasal congestion
  • Headaches
  • Loss of smell and/or taste
  • Watery and/or red eyes
  • Swelling around the eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose

Will an Air Purifier Helps Relieve Seasonal Allergies?

Let’s make one thing clear: like air conditioning units, air purifiers cannot prevent seasonal allergies, though they can help relieve the symptoms associated with such conditions providing you choose the correct type, size and placement of the machine. With the right air purifier in place, environmental allergies caused by dust and even pet allergens can also be reduced, thus providing excellent quality indoor air for you and your loved ones.
