“When your home has high humidity levels, not only can it make you feel uncomfortably hot, but it can also worsen the symptoms of asthma or allergies, promote mold growth and encourage insect infestations,” says David Mathews, owner of CCAC Air Conditioning and Heating, Corpus Christi, Texas.
The city once again made the top 25 “Most Challenging Places to Live with Spring Allergies,” according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, a nonprofit patient organization dedicated to helping asthma and allergy sufferers.
CHARDON, OH (WOIO) -
A Health Alert: Spring is in full bloom, which means there's an uptick of pollen in the air. For many that means allergies. Heating and cooling experts say you can stay ahead with a simple fix.
"Allergies, pollen, all that stuff is coming into play," said Timothy Neely, operations manager at Debord's Heating & Air Conditioning.
Experts say the trees and flowers bloomed early, in part because of this year's mild winter. So that means there's plenty of pollen floating in the air, in addition to all of the other irritants. It may be time for some spring cleaning in your home.
