If you suffer from seasonal allergies, you’re not alone. Although many Central Florida yards are beautiful, the trees, flowers, and grass may set off your seasonal allergies. The area’s long growing season means that you might deal with tree allergies starting in December.

Fortunately for LifeStyle homebuyers, our new HealthSmart program includes multiple features that can help you fight off seasonal allergies and breathe easier year-round. Here are four.

High-Efficiency Air Filters
Some allergens will inevitably make their way into your home. When you go outdoors, some pollen or dust will get on your hair and clothes. Your shoes will also pick up allergens. The items you bring into your home may also contain allergens.

That’s why HealthSmart high-efficiency air filters with a minimum efficiency reported value (MERV) rating of 11 will help you fight your seasonal allergies. The filters trap allergens and remove them from your home’s air.

Hard-Surface Flooring
All LifeStyle homes are built with hard-surface flooring in the main living areas, making it much easier to eliminate allergens that make their way inside your home. Dust, dirt, pollen and other allergens can be much more easily cleaned and removed from tile, wood, or laminate flooring versus carpet.

Smart Thermostats
Smart thermostats make it easier to control your home’s temperature and humidity levels. If the humidity in your home exceeds 50%, this fuels the growth of dust mites, mold, and other allergens. By keeping the humidity level in your home between 30% and 50%, you’ll optimize your comfort and cut down on seasonal allergy symptoms.

With a smart thermostat, you can run the fan-only function of your cooling system, allowing the system to filter your home’s air and remove more particles constantly. Smart thermostats include apps for your phone, so if you’re traveling or late coming home from work, you can make adjustments to your home’s temperature and humidity level at any time.

Intelligent Exhaust Fans
In addition to a smart thermostat, your home also has intelligent exhaust fans. The smart humidity-sensing fans in LifeStyle Homes’ bathrooms and laundry rooms constantly check the humidity level and automatically turn it on when it exceeds 50%. By exhausting the excess humidity, these fans also help control allergy symptoms.

If you’re ready for a beautiful home with environmentally friendly and smart features to help you minimize allergens, LifeStyle Homes delivers. Get in touch with us today to learn more about our homes.
