How can an air purifier help you with hay fever?

When hay fever hits, it can be miserable. An air purifier could be just the remedy you've been looking for.

If you suffer from allergies or hay fever, you’ll no doubt be familiar with the discomfort that pollen can cause with sneezing, itchy eyes and a blocked nose. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and can last from a few days to several weeks. In some cases, pollen allergies can even lead to more serious health problems, such as asthma attacks or sinus infections.

Buying an air purifier for allergies is a good move – and it could help if you suffer from hay fever. Look for one with a High-Performance Particulate Air (HEPA) filter as it can help with pollen allergies by trapping the tiny particles that cause the problem.

How to choose the right pollen filter for your home

Pollen is a minute, powdery grain released by plants that can be carried by the wind and enter your home through open windows, doors and other openings. These particles are small, so the best air filter for hay fever is the HEPA filter, which filters pollen as well as dust and viruses. If pollen gets into your home, and you inhale it, it could trigger allergy symptoms.

An air purifier can be an effective tool in the fight against pollen, providing relief from allergy symptoms and helping to improve the air quality in your home. By choosing the right air purifier and maintaining it properly, you can help to create a cleaner, fresher and more comfortable indoor environment for you and your family.

How to use an air purifier to reduce your hay fever symptoms

An air purifier will certainly ease your reaction to pollen allergies, but there are other steps you can take to prevent hay fever. Keep your doors and windows closed because pollen can drift indoors even if they’re slightly open. It’s tempting to open a window in the summer but these are the months when the pollen count is high. Keeping windows closed can also help reduce the levels of dust, dirt and dander.

Instead, pull down your blinds or close your curtains to make warm rooms cooler. If you do want to open your windows, it's best to do this at night time when pollen levels are lower. Run your air purifier for pollen allergies and you’ll get a better night’s sleep. Daikin air purifiers are silent and simple to operate with a touch of a button on your smartphone.
