When people think about prime allergy season, their minds automatically go to springtime. However, fall allergies can be even worse, affecting close to 70% of people who suffer from allergies—the main culprit of these conditions: ragweed plants. While you fight allergy symptoms, you also have to keep in mind how your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) during fall allergy season is being affected.

Luckily, Keefe’s offers a wide range of IAQ products, including Pristine clean home air systems, that eliminate ragweed pollen. Let’s take a look at what you can expect from ragweed season and how your HVAC system can help fight off fall allergies in your home.

What Are Ragweed Allergies?

Known as one of the most common reasons for hay fever, ragweed pollen is everywhere across the United States. Unfortunately, since ragweed grains can travel up to 400 miles by the power of wind forces, there is no way to escape it. Ragweed allergies heavily affect those who have asthma, creating the worst symptoms for them.

Here are some symptoms you can expect from these fall allergies:

  • Uncontrollable sneezing
  • Itchy nose and throat
  • Headaches
  • Runny nose
  • Nasal blockage
  • Irritated eyes

How Proper IAQ Can Eliminate Ragweed Symptoms

Protecting your home’s indoor air quality during fall allergy season is a must. With the proper preventative measures, you can make your house a safe haven for allergy sufferers. Let’s take a look at the IAQ solutions that eliminate ragweed pollen and other allergy triggers.

Home Air Purifiers 

Air purifiers can refresh lasting air in your home, creating a healthier space. They help eliminate many types of indoor air pollutants by sanitizing the air. These devices can also help relieve asthma symptoms by removing pet dander, dust mites, and pollen that can cause issues for those who have difficulty breathing. 

Changing Your Air Filters

It can be easy to forget but changing your air filters is a must in improving your indoor air quality during fall allergy season. When allergen particles enter your heating and air conditioning system, the air filters trap these contaminants and block them from entering your home. 

Keefe’s offers Pristine air replacements filters to ensure your home is protected. This IAQ solution eliminates ragweed allergen pollen if done correctly and on time.

Air Cleaners

Similar to air purifiers, air cleaners help filter the air and collect dust particles. These cleaners attract bigger particles, not small ones like purifiers. Keefe’s offers Polarized Media Electronic Air Cleaners that help improve indoor air quality during fall allergy season by trapping odors and gases and removing mold’s food sources to prevent growth.
