I used to assume that I might be allergic to shrubbery or something like that because I would always sneeze like crazy while I was in this summer season.
This past year I found out that I am more allergic to things than I thought! When I finally broke down and went to the allergy specialist in our town, he did all kinds of testing on me and I found out that I am allergic to a lot of things that really end up inside of our house! He said that I am allergic to dust, pollen and other types of materials that come in through the ventilation system into our house.
I did not know what to assume when he first told me that. I mean, how do you keep things from coming into our apartment through your ventilation system? It’s not like you can close off your entire heating and air conditioning system from the outside. I assume there is always going to be dust, dirt and other things coming in! The allergy nurse was really actually helpful with all of our questions though! He said that the best thing for me to do would be to get a whole home air purification system installed to run at the same time as our heating and cooling system. He said that whole home air purification systems are good for people like me with this type of allergies. When I got home that day, I called up our HVAC business and made an appointment to have them come and supply me an estimate on air purification systems. Hopefully this helps with all of our symptoms!
