Spring has well and truly arrived. For many, spring is synonymous with blossoming trees and warmer weather. For others, the season can only mean one thing: spring allergies.
Spring allergies affect many people and can be incredibly frustrating and uncomfortable. Itchy eyes, scratchy throats and runny noses are just some of the many symptoms of spring allergies. Often, allergy sufferers are forced to take medication just for temporary relief.
If you suffer from spring allergies, the unfortunate truth is that there is no cure. However, there are several lifestyle changes you can make to minimise the effects of seasonal irritation. There may be few places you’re able to find relief, but your home should definitely be one of them.
Your home should be a safe haven from airborne allergens and, the good news is, it can be.
Heat pumps are much more than just a heating and cooling device. They also act as an air cleanser, providing you with a much higher quality of air in your home. With an advanced filtration system, heat pumps are able to remove pollen and dust from the air before delivering clean, allergen-free air back to you.
By removing allergens from the air, you’ll be able to enjoy safe, effective relief from spring allergies in the comfort of your own home.
What causes spring allergies?
The combination of strong winds and an increased pollen count is a recipe for disaster for allergy sufferers. While spring flowers, flourishing trees and fresh grass create so much beauty in the season, they also release tiny grains of pollen into the air to fertilise other plants.
And when pollen gets into the nose of an allergy sufferer, they can wreak havoc on their body’s defences.
The body instantly sees pollen as a danger which forces it to release histamines into the blood. It’s your body’s reaction to the histamines that cause allergy symptoms.
Throw some intense spring winds into the mix and pollen’s suddenly flying around at high speed, coming into contact with every man and his dog. And just when you think you’re safe in your home, you realise the pollen has made its way indoors. Before you know it, nowhere is safe and your only option is to seek medical help.
Unless you have a heat pump.
That’s when your home can truly be a place to escape the niggly symptoms of spring allergies.
How do heat pump filters remove allergens?
Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps are equipped with anti-allergy enzyme filters. This advanced technology combats allergens through various powerful enzymes that break down allergens.
Anti-allergy enzyme filters have the ability to remove airborne allergens such as bacteria, viruses, dust mites and the main culprit of spring allergies: pollen.
As an in-built filtration system, your heat pump filters are activated by simply switching on your heat pump. Recognising the benefits of good air quality, Mitsubishi Electric has designed their heat pumps to heat or cool your home using the cleanest air possible.
With Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps, your home can be the safe haven you’d like it to be.
Clean air is the best defence against spring allergies
While antihistamines do the trick for many allergy sufferers, they only provide temporary relief.
There are also a lot of people who find themselves repeatedly visiting the doctor or pharmacist looking for a stronger defence against spring allergies.
When the air in your home is clean and free from harmful microbes, it gives you a place where you can let your allergy symptoms subside. Although you’ll have to go back out into the open air eventually, having relief from pollen is key to ensuring your symptoms don’t get any worse. It also gives you a chance to let antihistamines do their job while your body’s defences are not being bombarded with more and more pollen.
Spring can be a dreaded season for allergy sufferers but your home should always be a place to find relief. Through advanced filtration systems, your heat pump can provide you with clean, allergen-free air that will give you the break you need from seasonal allergies.
