Reduce Your Allergies with a New Furnace Filter

how to reduce allergies in the home

You’d be shocked to find out all the things in your home that are triggering your allergies. From dust to pet dander, there are so many airborne allergens in a home that they seem impossible to avoid — but there is something you can do.

Having a strong furnace filter and changing it regularly is the key combination to maintain clean indoor air. These filters help clean your air and trap all those pesky allergens that are making you wheeze, sneeze and cough all night.

At PureFilters we understand the importance of clean indoor air, which is why we provide furnace filters in Canada that can help protect you and your indoor air from irritating allergens.

Shop with PureFilters; we make it easy to find the right filter by having an online shop that’s simple to navigate. All you have to do is put through your order, keep your eyes peeled for a confirmation email and sit tight — your new filter will be at your door in 3 to 5 days! We even offer free delivery when you spend over $60.

It’s imperative that you change your filter every few months because when you don’t, that can result in a clog. When you have a buildup of all those pesky allergens that your filter trapped, you end up with a fire hazard on your hands — and nobody wants that.

When it comes to keeping airborne allergens at bay, an effective furnace filter is essential. Here are the main ways that a functioning furnace filter can help reduce your allergy symptoms:

It Filters Allergens

According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology, indoor allergens trigger allergy symptoms for millions of people all year.

Furnace filters effectively trap allergens like pollen, mold spores, pet dander and dust. If you don’t have an effective filter and are readily exposed to these allergens, you may suffer from reactions not limited to itchy eyes, congestion and sinus swelling.

No matter where you are in the world, these indoor allergens are pests that can cause nasty reactions. According to NHS, an Allergy UK study revealed that 12 million Brits are allergic to the air in their home.

While filters do a great job of trapping these pesky particles, remember that if you don’t change your filter, these materials build up.  It’s important to change your filter before a build-up prevents it from doing its job and becomes a fire hazard.

Breathe Better

There are a wide variety of health benefits that come with keeping your air clean — breathing better due to fewer airborne allergens is just one of them.

Allergies and asthma tend to be strongly connected, as they often occur together according to Everyday Health. Allergens like dust mites and pet dander can influence minor allergies but are also a major asthma trigger.

Pick the Right Filter

It’s best to keep your allergies in mind when picking your furnace filter. Certain models may just not cut it due to your sensitivities. If you have strong allergic reactions, you will likely need an especially resilient filter that will effectively trap all those allergens.

If you have allergies, it’s best to go with a thick filter that will catch the smaller airborne particles that trigger your symptoms.

MERV Rating of 11 or More

Our products boast a high capacity pleat technology that is designed on a molecular level to maintain airflow while trapping as many pesky particles as possible.

We sell a wide variety of filters that range in MERV Rating. Of course, the higher it is rated the more capable a filter is of keeping allergens from circulating in your indoor air.

Shop with us to find the perfect filter to suit your needs. For example, we have plenty of filters with MERV ratings of over 11, which are ideal for trapping pet dander, pollen, dust, mold & more.

Change It Often

For your furnace filter to effectively filter allergens in your home, it needs to function to its full capabilities. The older a filter gets, the more its functionality deteriorates.

Once your filter has trapped too many of these triggering particles like dust mites and pet dander, a build-up of these materials occurs which hinders its abilities.

Play Your Part

It’s not realistic to expect all of your indoor allergies to disappear with the use of a furnace filter. It’s best to combine the function of the filter with some cleaning of your own.

The less pet hair you clean up, the more your filter has to collect. The more your filter has to collect, the sooner it will clog, and the faster you will have to replace it.

For your furnace filter to do its job effectively for a longer period of time, you too need to be cleaning up. Dust and vacuum your carpets, keep your walls clean and limit your use of sprays that can pollute your indoor air with chemicals.
