Some of the most common allergic symptoms that people suffer from are caused by airborne allergens, with pollen being a key example.
Hay fever is the common name for pollen allergy and is mainly caused by grass pollens, although other pollens can also trigger the symptoms. 1 in 5 people in the UK have this allergy and it is thought that 18 million people suffer with hay fever. It is most common in children and teenagers although it can be triggered at any age. Symptoms usually include frequent sneezing, itchy and watery eyes and stuffy nose.
Avoiding exposure to pollen is the best way to reduce allergic symptoms of hay fever. A mechanical ventilation system provides constant clean, fresh filtered air without the need to open windows and doors. Reducing airborne allergens helps alleviate the symptoms for hay fever and allergy sufferers.
