Doing what I can for my allergies

I have bad allergies.

I don’t know if it is the outdoor air or my indoor air quality.

It could be pollen, pet dander or even the smell of the cat litter that is bothering me. I haven’t been able to deduce the cause of my allergies. I sneeze, have a runny nose, dry cough and a headache constantly though. I get so sick of carrying tissues around that I just let my nose run like a kindergartener. I looked online on what to do to help my allergies. There are of course medications and cleaners that help matters out. I did find one article that piqued my interest though. It was highly advocated to work on improving your indoor air quality when suffering with allergies. I did everything that was recommended and I am shocked by the difference. First I bought HEPA filters which have a higher MERV rating and smaller holes to catch dust. I then bought myself a whole home air purifier. This was sort of a pain since the HVAC technician needed to install it in my return ductwork. I also need to be on it with air filter changes for not only the HVAC unit, but the air purifier. The cost of the air filters aren’t cheap though. I then had the HVAC contractor do some ductwork cleaning while he was in the house. Now that everything is all installed and cleaned, I can breathe easy. I hardly sneeze now and my headaches are gone. I feel like a whole new woman.
