Top 3 Resources for Asthma Sufferers in Florida
Though you’ll never find a safe haven completely free of asthma triggers, some states are better than others. Fortunately for residents of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, our state offers several resources to help residents manage asthma and allergies. Take a look at these top three resources for asthma sufferers in Florida.
The Florida Asthma Coalition
Whether you are a physician, family member, caregiver, or educator of someone with asthma, the Florida Asthma Coalition is one of the best resources available. In addition to the educational materials posted for schools and health care providers, the website features plenty of tools and tips for families. You can follow links to search for experienced doctors, download mobile asthma apps, learn more about asthma triggers, or watch an instructional video about how to use an inhaler.
Dedicated Asthma-Care Doctors
Speaking of experienced doctors, did you know there are doctors who specialize in asthma care? To find one in your area, head to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology website, click the orange “Find an Allergist” button, and enter your zip code. Florida is home to several physicians who are board certified in allergy and immunology. If you or your child suffers from asthma, consider adding a dedicated asthma-care doctor to your healthcare team.
Your Local HVAC Technician
An HVAC professional may not be the first person you’d think to call for help with asthma, but you’d be surprised how much we can help. First, we can test your home’s indoor air quality and suggest ways to improve it. We can also provide regular HVAC maintenance, cleaning your system and checking for any problems that could affect indoor air quality. We even offer several products, such as whole-home air filters, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers, that can help reduce or eliminate key asthma triggers in your home.
We’d love to help make your home a safer place for those suffering from asthma and allergies. Take those first step towards improving your home’s indoor air quality by calling Mike Merritt’s Heating & Air today: 904-240-4038
