“Got itchy eyes and an alternately stuffy and runny nose? Feeling like allergy season seems to start earlier and end later? It’s true that due to climate change, there’s more pollen in the air, and for a longer time, than there used to be, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology and the Environmental Protection Agency. (In the past, pollen season ran from April to mid-October. Now, depending on where you live, it can linger from February to November.) And pollen counts are expected to double by 2040, notes AAAAI.”

More than 25 million Americans are looking for relief from the symptoms of asthma and allergies. New research from Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. shows that high-efficiency air filters, especially those containing MERV ratings of 12 or higher, can significantly reduce particles that cause allergy and asthma symptoms. Some of these filters are available for as little as $50 a year.
