Allergens to Watch Out for Near Georgetown
It’s all about the pollen when it comes to spring allergy misery in Georgetown, TX. Nature springs to life in a big way as the temperatures begin to rise, releasing pollen trees and plants need to reproduce and bloom. While you may enjoy the energy, vitality, and beauty of the season, it can pose serious health issues for those with allergies. In fact, two Texas cities made the top 20 list of the nation’s Allergy Capitals, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
Here are the most common allergies in our area:
- Tree pollen: Tree pollen is released from various types of trees such as birch, oak, maple, cedar, and elm. Symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. Additionally, some allergy sufferers may contract cedar fever, a severe allergy to cedar pollen that causes fevers and painful headaches.
- Ragweed pollen: Ragweed pollen can travel long distances and cause allergy symptoms to flare. If you find yourself sneezing and coughing, this could be the culprit.
- Cedar tree pollen: Cedar trees release pollen all winter, peaking in January. However, you may experience “cedar fever” in the spring too. It causes inflammation, sore eyes, fatigue, fever, scratchy throat, and sneezing.
- Grass pollen: Grass pollen is heavy in the air from early March to late June, often causing coughing, congestion, and wheezing.
Pro Tip: Check the pollen counts in your area to avoid when making outdoor plans, and consult the experts at DTC to find out the best ways to arm your HVAC system against the spring pollen invasion.
Note that spring rain can also cause mold spores to become more active in Georgetown. To avoid dry skin, runny nose, congestion and watery eyes, consider investing in a whole house air purifier installed by DTC’s certified technicians.
Portable Vs. Whole House Air Purifier
There are two types of air purifiers, portable and whole house. Portable air filters are great for dealing with small spaces, like an RV or a single room. However, if you suffer from respiratory issues or allergies, a whole house air purifier installed directly in your HVAC system is the answer.
Whole house air purifiers treat the air flowing throughout your home. Installed within your HVAC system, they filter air before it leaves your ductwork. You don’t have to buy a portable unit for every room when you treat your air at the source.
These low maintenance systems don’t require regular filter replacement or cleaning. Plus, they effectively remove pollutants from large volumes of air.
