Why You Should Use a Winix Air Purifier During Fall Allergy Season
Just when you think you get a break from summer’s heat, you have to contend with fall allergy season. While some people suffer more with spring allergies, others are at the mercy of ragweed pollen and an uptick in mold, right when you want to leave your windows open to let in the autumn breeze. Winix understands your struggle, but luckily, we have a solution to your fall allergy dilemma: a Winix air purifier! Instead of giving in to the inevitable runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes, you should improve the quality of your indoor air to help you breathe easier this autumn.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
Without an air purifier, you would have to do all the work yourself or hire someone to clean the interior of your home to reduce the allergens present in your indoor air. In addition to keeping your windows closed, you can expect to vacuum and dust regularly, even daily, to reduce dust, pollen, and pet dander from settling on your furniture, in the fibers of your carpeting, or even the linens in your bedroom. Of course, all that cleaning can also kick up the dust and pollen back into the air, creating a cycle of air allergens that never really leave your home.
A Winix air purifier with a True HEPA Filter may not be able to change your sheets or sweep the hardwoods, but it can remove a large majority of airborne allergens inside that are making your fall allergies worse.
To get the most efficiency out of your air purifier, you should make sure you have the right size model for how you plan to use it. One purifier may not be able to work effectively to clean the entire house at once; rather, you should know the measurements of the rooms in which you plan to use it to find an appropriate size. Concentrate on the rooms where you spend the most time, typically your bedroom or living space. A large formal living room you only see for special occasions is not nearly as important as the room where you sleep for six to eight hours every night.
What’s the big deal about a True HEPA Filter? It’s the only kind of filter that can remove up to 99.97% of particles that are as small as 0.3 microns in diameter. Winix goes two steps further by removing 99.99%* of particles down to 0.003 microns in size. Other types of filters, such as ozone generators, basic air cleaners, or ionizers, may not be able to prevent the respiratory symptoms associated with your fall allergies. As an added bonus, True HEPA Filters, in combination with Activated Carbon Filters, do an amazing job at removing odors from your home, especially smoke, food, or pet smells, which can be a challenge for those other types of filters.
