This is the worst allergen of the heating season and how to protect yourself

Some allergy sufferers can breathe a sigh of relief with the onset of autumn, but unfortunately for many, the heating season is the start of the agony. People with dust mite allergies may start to notice symptoms as early as autumn, because heating creates the ideal living conditions for mites in most cases.

What is a dust mite?

The main mite season in Hungary starts in October and lasts until approximately April. But what is a dust mite? Dust mites are tiny organisms that live mainly in dust in a covered place, feeding on animal or human dead skin fragments and certain mould species. For many people this is a nuisance, as they can cause asthma attacks or other allergies.

Cleanliness is key

It's important to live in a clean environment, with new furniture and carpets and textiles wherever possible. In more serious cases, we can even remove curtains and carpets to keep the amount of fabrics in our living space to a minimum. For young children, plush can also be a problem. It is worth giving them a 60 degree 'bath' every week or freezing them for 24 hours. If you don't want to end up crying, test the plush toys before giving them away to see how well they can withstand this kind of wrinkling. It's important to know that although you can reduce the amount of dust mites in the house, you won't achieve complete symptom-free status.

Heating can ignite the problem

Unfortunately, the problem can be exacerbated during the heating season, as most conventional and non-traditional heating systems rely on heating the air. This allows dust to be carried freely in the air, which is very bad news for allergy sufferers. This can be exacerbated by heating solutions such as air conditioning, which also creates extra airflow in the heated rooms. This is compounded by the fact that rooms prone to mould are also affected at this time of year, making the situation even worse.

What is the solution?

Of course, the basic thing, as mentioned above, is that you need to take extra care with cleanliness, choosing anti-allergenic products if you can - such as pillows, bedding etc. But, crucially, in the cooler months, you need to choose your heating system properly. What we can say with certainty is that the infrapanel is a heating solution that can serve people with allergies very well. The main reason for this is that the infrared rays it emits do not heat the air, but the objects in the room and the walls directly, so there is no extra airflow to prevent dust from being carried in the air. In addition, it can also help to eliminate mould on walls and even solve this stubborn problem completely. In addition, the installation of an infrapanel is extremely cost-effective, does not involve any destruction of the home and does not require any permits. If you want to test it out, choose a room where you spend a lot of time, like the bedroom, where you can test how great this heating solution is.
