Trying to figure how bad allergies in the area. We have a history of reactions, but only when they're very high. What are your experiences? Also, do you find that living closer to the coast helps?

I grew up in West Palm and had very bad allergies as a child (Palm Beach is on the beach, not West Palm), went to college in Boca (college located inland) and no allergies. Some say that children can outgrow allergies, no idea if that is true. Now living on FL west coast (near the water not on the beach) and pollen allergies for past 2 years have been horrible.

I'm wondering if it helps to be located where the breezes come from the water rather than the land, on the Atlantic Coast in other words.

And obviously you are asking about plant, tree and grass allergies rather than indoor dust mites, etc.
With everything A/C'd these days I doubt that mold is an issue but I haven't been to an allergist in many years.

edit to add: I had to leave grad school in NYC because of asthma due to very poor air quality in late 1970's. I keep hoping to find a place with good air and no allergies.

I saw this on TV show, this Old House:


“Accessories for Fresh Air Ventilation

You may want to configure your Ultra-Aire system to provide fresh air ventilation to your home while it dehumidifies. Doing this brings fresh air into your home. Today’s well-sealed homes can create a build-up of indoor air pollutants, resulting in air that is far more polluted inside than outside.

Sources of indoor air pollutants include fireplaces, off-gassing furniture and flooring, cleaning supplies, pets, and gas-burning appliances. Fresh air venting creates a safer living environment for you and your family. It's also a popular option for light and natural dehumidifying during drier months when you wouldn't normally run your dehumidifier. For this application, you'll need to purchase an inlet hood, your preferred ducting accessories, and a digital controller like the DEH 3000 or DEH 3000R.”

The above would work for my 1-story home. Still thinking about it.

Any thoughts?
