Got asthma? You\u2019re not alone\u2014over 26 million Americans suffer from the chronic respiratory condition, experiencing unpleasant symptoms like wheezing and other breathing difficulties. Cooper Mechanical\u2019s go-to expert, the Coop, is here to give you all the facts on how to beat asthma symptoms with a few simple changes to your home.As you might have become uncomfortably aware during this pollen-heavy spring and summer, warmer weather often brings on worsening asthma symptoms. Summer is supposed to be when you enjoy your time outdoors, but you find yourself hiding inside from the terrible air quality index. And even being indoors doesn\u2019t seem to offer much relief. What\u2019s the deal?Well, it could be your indoor air that\u2019s causing you so much trouble. You might not know it, but contaminated indoor air is a notable risk to your respiratory health. Think about it: mold spores, pet dander, household cleaning chemicals, dust mites\u2026with all of those particles floating around, and no proper filtration system to take care of them, you\u2019re setting yourself up for a serious soup of indoor pollution, which can aggravate your asthma and prevent you from enjoying your air conditioning in the summer.\u201cBut Coop,\u201d you might be saying, \u201cdoesn\u2019t my air conditioner take care of all that?\u201dGood question.
