The dust from the Sahara Desert arrives on the east coast and then moves inland in time for Easter. The dust aggravates eyes, and many seek advice from their pharmacy to help get them through this period. Upgrading your air conditioning filters may be all you need to help avoid the Sahara dust and many of the other allergies that individuals suffer from during the differing seasons.

Watching the Pollen Count

For some individuals, keeping a check on the pollen count allows you to plan your day carefully so that you can avoid the pollen reaching your eyes and nose which will cause you severe aggravation and dramatically affect your day.

For those who go home to try to avoid the increased pollen count, you may be entering a mixture of air that includes a very high pollen count, unless your air conditioning filters have been replaced recently.

When your air conditioning system is not maintained regularly, at least twice a year before spring and winter, your air conditioning filters may become dirty and fail to protect you from the very dust and pollens that affect your day-to-day life.

Air filters are designed to trap dust and the other particles that are airborne. When you fail to change your filter, it becomes overloaded, and the areas in your home will be full of all the particles that were previously trapped, increasing the dust and pollen count in the very rooms where you need to relax.

When you speak to your air conditioning experts, they may suggest that you change your air filters once every month or at least meet the specifications of the manufacturer.

You can purchase different grades of air conditioning filters for your property. Some help to remove pollen, while others attract pet hair. Should you choose to add a high-efficiency particulate air filter known as a HEPA filter, the reduced airflow must be managed effectively by your air conditioning system.

Ask your air conditioning service experts which air filters are best for you and your specific requirements.
