Do certain Columbia, Maryland, seasons give you horrible hay fever? If so, you’re in a club encompassing tens of millions of other Americans, though you probably wish you weren’t. Why did you get so lucky? Several factors, from your immune system to your genes, play a role in your allergy issues.

Allergies Are an Immune System Response

Our immune systems are constantly scanning our bodies for foreign objects, like bacteria. When we feel sick, the symptoms are the result of our immune system attacking the foreign body, including any cells that have become infected or damaged.

The human body recognizes indoor air quality (IAQ) issues like pollen as foreign invaders, too. When you breathe in certain allergy triggers, like pollen or dust, your body thinks it’s under attack. Your immune system kicks into gear, and you get symptoms like a cough or a runny nose.

You Inherit Your Proclivity Toward Allergies

If your parents have allergies, then you probably have allergies. External factors can trigger allergies, too, but most people who suffer from hay fever-type allergies have a genetic proclivity for it. Next time you’re sniffling because it’s your allergy season, you can blame your parents.

HVAC Solutions Are Great for Allergy Alleviation

Going outside during allergy season can create problems, but you can make your home’s interior almost allergen-free. Change your HVAC’s filters often, and use one with at least a MERV 10 rating to catch all the dust and pollen in the air. Get a duct cleaning to remove any allergens hiding in your ducts. Consider adding air purifiers to your bedroom and living room to trap and neutralize microbial allergens.

If allergens are running rampant inside your house, it’s time to call Griffith Energy Services. We’re experts at the HVAC solutions that will improve your IAQ.
