Did You Know New Windows & Doors Can Help With Seasonal Allergies?
Are you plagued by watering eyes, an itchy throat or a runny nose with the turn of each new season? If so, you might be one or more than 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies each year. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, you are probably always on the lookout for solutions so you don’t spend whole seasons miserably wiping your nose. Did you know that installing new windows and doors can be one of the most effective ways to help with seasonal allergies? While this might seem like a more expensive option than an over-the-counter option from your local drugstore, it is well worth the expense. Installing new windows and doors can help stop symptoms before they even start rather than trying to treat symptoms once they show up.
Mold spores, pollen, and dust particles are the primary causes of seasonal allergies and windows are the primary route for these to enter the home. The reality is that older windows often weren’t designed with allergies in mind and therefore weren’t built to withstand allergens. Consequently, these windows will easily let spores, pollen and dust particles into the house. On the other hand, more modern and updated windows are designed to keep outside elements outside. Installing these new windows can greatly help with seasonal allergies.
The second most common entry-point into the home for these allergens is through doors. Installing doors with weather strips can greatly reduce the number of allergens entering the home through doors. Additionally, consider adding a storm door to your home. In order to reduce the number of allergens in the house you want to keep the climate-controlled indoor air inside, and the outdoor air outside. Storm doors are one way to do that as they can be an additional measure for stopping air exchange. Not only do storm doors help stop air exchange they produce something of an airlock stopping various allergens from entering the home.
