Any electrician will tell you that one way to avoid allergens is to install an air conditioner, which will filter out nearly all the allergens from outside, leaving your inside air fresh and pure. This is good news for people who are allergic and suffer from itchy, red eyes, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing or even asthmatic problems due to allergies.
External allergens include many things such as –
- Dust from soil
- Pollen from flowers
- Pollen from grasses
- Smoke and fine ash from bushfires
- Factory smoke and soot
- Pet hair and dander and more
The problem with outside allergens is that they can blow into your area from many kilometres away, so just looking around your district to see what is likely to affect you may not alert you to what is causing your allergies.
If you step outside only to find it is the pathway to an allergy attack, the best thing to do is stay inside as much as possible. Of course, it is essential to get that bit of fresh air and sunshine for optimal health. This can be done early in the morning while the morning air is moist and dew is still on the grass as that will help to reduce pollen and grass borne allergies.
