Simple tips for reducing seasonal allergies

Seasonal allergies make everything more difficult. Whether you’re trying to work, relax, or sleep, a stuffy nose, itchy eyes, and constant sneezing can get in the way, but avoiding pollen, dust, mould, and other allergens is tough. Luckily, there are some precautions you can take to alleviate your exposure and symptoms.  

Know your triggers    

The first step to alleviating allergies is pinpointing what triggers your reactions. But you can only take steps to avoid these triggers if you know what they are. Once tests have identified your allergens, it will be much easier to decrease your exposure.  If pollen causes you to sniff, cough, or sneeze, keep windows and doors closed on windy, dry days and try and stay indoors when the pollen count is at its highest. If you’re out of options and simply have to go outside when allergens are at their worst, wear a mask and immediately wash your hair and clothes the minute you get back home. For some people, it might be best not to hang washing up outside to prevent dust or pollen from getting onto your clothes or linen.  Grass is another allergy trigger, so spare yourself the discomfort by getting someone else to mow the lawn – it might be a sneaky way to get out of doing chores, but you won’t regret it!  

Creating a safer, cleaner home
With the right equipment, you can ensure that your home is at least a safer space for allergies. The LG Dual Inverter ArtCool aircon alleviates some of the discomfort you experience during seasonal changes. The ArtCool has a unique filter that uses over 3 million ions to sterilise the air, eliminating harmful substances and odours surrounding the unit in just 60 minutes. This ioniser technology has been proven to sterilise over 99% of adhering bacteria to help your family stay healthy no matter the season.

Fitted with two different filters, the ArtCool traps certain particles that may be contributing to your allergies. The Micro Dust Filter captures micro-particles (like dust) from the air as they go through the unit. The Dual Protection Filter traps particles to the size of 10+ microns (µm). Pollen grains are, on average, 25 microns, which means the aircon would also filter them out.

With a minimal, basic mirror glass panel, the LG ArtCool looks stylish and runs super quietly thanks to its innovative Dual Inverter Compressor. Complete with a 10-year warranty, the compressor ensures quieter and faster cooling and heating and lowers energy consumption by as much as 60%. It constantly adjusts the speed at which air is expelled to maintain the desired temperature. It’s great for controlling airflow in large, open spaces and smaller spaces like bedrooms to ensure a more peaceful night’s sleep.

The aircon can also be controlled remotely from your smartphone. Manage your preferences, implement start, and end times, troubleshoot errors and more by simply downloading the ThinQ app.

You can reduce the effects of seasonal allergies by making some simple changes to your lifestyle and being more aware of what triggers your body. Upgrade to the LG ArtCool and filter out some of the most common allergens from your home for a quick and simple solution.
