We all love spring, right? Longer days, fluffy lambs, daffodils… what’s not to like?
If you’re one of the many New Zealanders who suffer from allergies, though, spring can be a tough time! High pollen counts combined with the breezy conditions we often get at this time of year can make spring bad news for allergy sufferers.
HRV partner Allergy NZ* say that pollen season follows the warmer weather, starting in the north and working its way south (sometimes beginning as early as July). And there’s more than one sort of pollen causing problems! While bright yellow pine pollen is the most obvious sign that pollination season has begun, grass pollen is harder to see, causes just as many problems and is around for longer.
One action that Allergy NZ recommends is to check the pollen forecasts on the MetService website and stay indoors when levels are high. But spring days can be warm, so opening windows and doors to let cool air in can let the pollen in with it. What to do?
How HRV home ventilation can help
