A Beam Heat Recovery Ventilation System reduces allergy symptoms in the home so you and your family can live comfortably all year round.

Picture the scene, the sun is shining on a beautifully blossomed garden, the bees are gently hovering around that magnificent array of colourful flowers and shrubberies you've been watching and waiting on for so long to come to life. The lawn has been freshly mowed and you're preparing to relax on your fabulous decking. What a beautiful scene it is.

Now try picturing it with watering eyes, while sneezing with a blocked but runny nose. Not so pretty then, eh?

Facts about Hay Fever

Hay fever, also known as seasonal rhinitis, 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 hay fever - this is over 18 million people that suffer every year! Although it is most common in children and teenagers, it can affect many adults.

Grass pollen is the most common allergen which affects hay fever sufferers mostly between the months of April and July. However, most people are unaware the during the months of August to March there are still allergens which cause the likes of an itchy nose, eyes and throat, sneezing, runny and blocked noses, watery and red eyes and even headaches. So, for anyone suffering with these it can be difficult all year round when airborne allergens are floating around your home.

Well, thankfully there are the typical remedies we all know about to try and ease the suffering for those unfortunate enough to have hay fever. They can keep the symptoms to a manageable level while out and about but what happens when you're in your home and still suffering? You don't want to be taking hay fever medication while cooking the dinner or about to put your head down for the night.

Air Quality in your Home

Avoiding exposure to pollen is the best way to reduce allergy symptoms of hay fever, which means the air quality in your home can play a vital role in helping improve symptoms for hay fever sufferers.

Heat Recovery Ventilation systems deliver fresh, clean filtered air into the bedrooms and living areas of your home whilst extracting continuously from 'wet' areas, such as bathrooms, wc's etc.

Beam's Axco Heru Heat Recovery Ventilation System features F7 Pollen filters, the highest grade of specification available for a ventilation system. This large surface long-life F7 double protection filter on both incoming and extracted air (unique to Beam!) traps the pollen twice to ensure no pollen particles manage to escape through to your home. The filter also ensures no other pollutants or insects will pass through and with this constant pollen free, fresh filtered air will reduce the symptoms for allergy sufferers - no need to open windows to ventilate the home.

Having the correct ventilation system in your home can make a real difference if you suffer with hay fever by easing the burden and allowing you to get on with your home life in comfort and without the ugly side effects of allergies.
