3 Indoor Air Quality Products to Reduce Home Allergens

Spring is finally here in North Carolina, and with a new season comes warmer weather and longer days. While many are excited for the change from winter to spring, we are also forced to deal with sneezes and sinus pressure as the notorious “green wave” of pollen makes its return. 

This yellow dust piles on to every outdoor surface imaginable, causing many people to experience severe allergies and forcing them to stay indoors. However, the risk of suffering from pollen-related allergies runs just as high as suffering from indoor allergens from dust mites, pet dander, and mold. 

If you are a homeowner that experiences headaches, fatigue, shortness of breath, sinus congestion, coughing, sneezing, irritation of the eye, nose, throat or skin, or worsening allergy and asthma symptoms, we recommend the following AC system enhancements to control and prevent allergic reactions in your home.

UV Lights

UV Lights

UV Lights reduce common cold and flu symptoms as well as allergies by preventing bacteria and other contaminants from growing inside your HVAC equipment. This is installed directly into your heating and cooling equipment to reduce odors, prevent drain lines from clogging, and keep your AC coils clean to reduce energy usage and electricity costs.

Air Scrubber Plus

Air Scrubber Plus

The Air Scrubber Plus by Aerus installs directly into your HVAC system to remove 99% of surface and airborne contaminants including volatile organic compounds, odors, dust, pet dander, and other allergens. The system uses proprietary ActivePure® Technology and has been tested in independent labs and is proven effective on bacteria, viruses, mold and fungi on surfaces and in the air. This indoor air quality solution helps to reduce allergy symptoms, sinus issues, and can even extend your HVAC life. 

Aerus Pure & Clean +

The Aerus Pure & Clean+ is a portable surface and air purifier that uses patented ActivePure® Technology to remove microbial populations on surfaces as well as reduce airborne contaminants, allergens and odors in the air. This unit features an adjustable purifier control for increased smoke and odor control. 

The Aerus Pure & Clean features a high-intensity UVC light that makes use of the same oxidation and ionizing properties of light as naturally occurring sunlight. The proprietary ActivePure® Technology uses light waves and a catalytic process to produce superoxide ions and hydroperoxides that destroy contaminants on surfaces and in the air.

With the Aerus Pure & Clean, you can enjoy all the same benefits as a traditional air scrubber without having to install in your duct work!
