For those living in parts of the country that experience seasonal changes in temperature and weather conditions, the month of March typically signifies the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Springtime also means allergy season for millions of Americans.
The transition from winter to spring can be tough for allergy sufferers as months of cold, dry air have plagued the respiratory system, drying out nasal passages and paving the way for greater susceptibility to picking up colds or the flu. Once flowers and trees start blooming in the spring, pollen begins to flood the air, triggering allergic reactions like sneezing, itchy eyes, and scratchy throats.
While allergy season is reoccurring each year, there is some truth as to why each year seems to be worse than the previous year. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI), pollen counts do seem to be on the rise each year and are expected to double by the year 2040. Several factors contributing to this include rising temperatures, human activity increasing carbon dioxide levels, environmental sustainability and economic growth.
The ACAAI suggest allergy sufferers start preparing for allergy season well before they typically experience their first symptoms.
The best way to prepare for allergy season is to start preventative relief now. People all across the country have found relief with the best humidifier and air purifier for allergies: the Venta Airwasher.
How exactly does a 2-in-1 humidifier and air purifier provide allergy relief? It is all due to the innovative technology patented by Venta.
The Airwasher’s fan circulates, drawing room air into the unit, pulling microscopic particles like pollen, dust and bacteria in. These tiny particles, as small as 0.3 microns in size, pass over the rotating Disc Stacks and are deposited into the water reservoir where they remain. Due to the Airwasher’s revolutionary Cold Evaporation technology, only pure, moisturized air is released back into the room. Because the larger particles and allergens do not evaporate, they stay trapped in the water reservoir, not your air.
When there is too much moisture in the air, mold has an easier time thriving, which can greatly aggravate allergy sufferers. For this reason, some may be hesitant to rely on a humidifier for allergy relief. With the Venta Airwasher however, over-humidification is not a concern. The Airwasher will not over-humidify due to its Cold Evaporation technology. Your room air only takes the moisture it needs, preventing any chance of mold growth to occur.
Unlike traditional humidifiers, the Airwasher does not produce moisture through hot steam or cool mist, thus preventing the spread of bacteria, viruses or white dust. For more than 35 years, Venta has innovated its products and technology to develop the safest, most efficient and effective defense against dry air and allergies.
The dual functionality of the Airwasher means it can operate during the winter season to humidify dry indoor air, and also run during the spring and summer months to purify the air of airborne pollutants. This year-round operation helps allergy sufferers experience a smooth transition when allergy season begins.
This is why the Venta Airwasher is the best 2-in-1 humidifier and air purifier for allergies. Trapping allergens and producing even, comfortable levels of humidity sets the Airwasher apart from other traditional humidifiers. Filter-free and built with energy efficiency in mind, the Airwasher is economical to run and operate compared to other traditional humidifiers or purifiers.
Arming yourself with the best defense against allergies will help make allergy season less of a pain. Plan to operate the Venta Airwasher year-round, as you will constantly be maintaining your indoor air quality to the healthiest level. Once pollen starts spreading, your Airwasher will already be working to clear it from the air.
Even for those with extreme allergy conditions, the Venta Airwasher has proved to be one of the best sources of allergy relief. Melissa Morritt Coble of the parenting website, Blunt Moms, found allergy relief with the Venta Airwasher that medication and even surgeries could not perform. Below is an excerpt from her incredible story:
“My son has allergies. I know, I know; doesn’t everyone have allergies? Yes, but really, he has the “fun” kind. He is allergic to everything in the environment and requires loads of pills and potions just to partially control it. We have seen allergists, dermatologists, and ENT’s. I had no idea you could spend so much money on allergies.
We took all the advice we could find, from removing the carpet to getting him immunotherapy shots. He has had surgery and taken every single medication they put out on the market. Yet he still snorts and snuffles like some kind truffle-hunting boar most of the time. I’m telling you, it is not a pleasant sound either – and I love him. If you are a stranger, I imagine it’s like fingernails on a chalkboard.
So when we had the opportunity to try out a Venta Airwasher, I jumped. This occurred right after his HEPA filter fan broke and before I bought a replacement! It was what exactly what we were looking for. I was extra happy because it is a cold air humidifier. Humidity is a welcome thing when you live in the desert.
I was hoping this would help clear all the crap in his room he is allergic to and doesn’t seem capable of cleaning up for himself. Like dust. Because dusting is hard when you are a teenager. I wasn’t holding my breath because I have tried so many things before, but hope springs eternal in a mother’s heart. Besides, I am tired of yelling at him to clean his room for his own good. That alone made the Airwasher seem perfect for us.
People – if you do not have one of these things, you have no idea what you are missing. I know because I had no idea what we were missing.
He claimed he hasn’t slept so well in ages after one night. Leaving aside the fact that he sleeps until the mid-afternoon most days, that is an impressive declaration. Then he said could breathe through his nose for the first time in recent memory and I was sold. I expected the honeymoon to end, but after a couple weeks he emphatically told me that no matter where he moved, the Venta Airwasher was his and was going with him.
So thank you Venta. The Airwasher was just what we were looking even if we didn’t know it. I finally get why you call it an Airwasher and I am super grateful that it works as amazingly well as it does.”

Another amazing Airwasher success story comes from Pam Diamond, writer and owner of doula services company, First Daze and Nightzzz:
“I had dabbled in so-called air purifiers because of my seasonal allergies and the fact that we have pets indoors. But it wasn’t until my husband was hit with a debilitating sinus issue that we got serious about it. In fact, his ENT told him to get a high quality air purifier and use it.
Let me back up. First, Jay rarely got sick. It was me who needed allergy meds, prescription eye drops and nasal sprays to get me through the worst of the season (which seemed to get longer and longer each year). There were times I wanted to claw at my itchy eyes with sharp objects. You could often find me with ice packs on my face trying to ease the horrible itching. I was grateful to pharmaceutical relief even though I am very sensitive to the side effects. It was a trade-off for sure.
Then, one bizarre event (a nasty, old bird’s nest falling on his face while he was pruning shrubs) put Jay on a path of illness and doctors and two sinus surgeries and, after about 2 years, a return to health.
About a year or so into his fiasco, and after buying and returning a few different air purifiers and humidifiers that weren’t making a difference, we learned about Venta USA.
The first thing we noticed was the change in our skin. Typically when winter time rolls around, we suffer cracked fingers and lips as well as dry nasal passages and bloody noses from indoor heat and cold weather. But with our Venta Airwasher in the bedroom, our skin was much more hydrated than in winters past. Then came spring and all the pollens that go along with it. My nemeses. To my amazement, I didn’t need to fill my prescription for antihistamine eye drops and I didn’t need to take allergy meds daily. On a couple of occasions I used some over the counter drops but it was like night and day to the year before. The same was true for last fall. I even turned down a paid offer to participate in a study for a trial allergy medicine – something I’d done frequently in the past – because I wasn’t experiencing enough symptoms to warrant the participation.
My husband, who is completely healed and symptom-free, takes full ownership of our bedroom Venta – that’s how important the health benefits are to him.
Yes, I am a believer, and I recommend that you consider a Venta Airwasher for your home, your children’s bedrooms and any place that you want purified, clean air. By the way, the fan (our model has 3 levels) provides a wonderfully soothing sound for sweet slumbers. Air purifier, humidifier and white noise are housed all in one compact unit.”
