Get Ahead of Georgia’s Allergy Season


Georgia is home to many types of trees, plants, and vegetation that contribute to our beautiful and iconic scenery. In fact, Georgia has 66% forest coverage and is ranked 7th on the list of states with the most forest. Ask any Georgia resident and they’ll agree that Georgia is one of the most beautiful states in the country. 

But unfortunately, all those trees come at a price. Many people suffer from allergy symptoms due to the abundance of tree pollen. With the arrival of spring, you and your family members may be suffering from allergy symptoms. 

Although there’s not much you can do to avoid sneezing and water eyes when you go outside, there are steps you can take in your home to combat their effects. Keep reading to discover how our air purifier services in Winder, GA can help you combat allergies not just in spring, but all year long.

What’s in the Georgia Air?

In Georgia, allergy season usually begins as early as February as tree pollen levels sharply increase. Here are some of the most common allergens in Georgia based on the season. As you can see, there’s really no escaping allergy symptoms throughout the year.

  • Spring: Major triggers for allergies are from tree pollen from species such as oak, hickory, walnut, maple, ash, pine, and cedar.
  • Summer: Summer allergy season starts as early as May and peaks in June. Grasses such as Bermuda grass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Timothy grass, and Rye Grass release their pollen. Also, the heat and humidity allow mold spores to flourish.
  • Fall: Fall brings little relief to allergy sufferers. Here are fall’s common allergens: Ragweed, Cocklebur, Burning bush, Lamb’s quarter, Pigweed, Mugwort, Russian thistle, Tumbleweed, Sagebrush
  • Winter: Winter allergies are usually due to indoor allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores.

How Do Allergens Get Into My Home?

Here’s how they make their way into your home in the first place.

  • Open doors and windows: Letting in fresh spring air after being cooped up all winter allows allergens to drift inside.
  • HVAC system: Allergens can infiltrate your HVAC system via air intake vents, open doors and windows, and holes and leaks in ductwork. 
  • Pets and people: As pets and family members go outside and return home, they bring allergens back to your home.

How Can I Reduce Allergens in My Home?

Many allergy sufferers try to make do with portable air filters but these have their limitations as they can only clean a small amount of square footage per unit. The best option is to consult with indoor air quality (IAQ) specialists like the ones on our team.

We can install a whole house air purification system that’ll clean ALL the air that circulates throughout your entire home. For example, the AprilAire whole-home air purifiers can help capture and remove mold spores, dust, pollen, and viruses.

Don’t suffer through our extended allergy season any longer. Contact us today to learn about IAQ solutions.
