This Season Brings Spring Allergens That Can Affect IAQ

This Season Brings Spring Allergens That Can Affect IAQ

Spring allergens present a seasonal threat to healthy indoor air quality in many homes. Allergic reactions typically originate from two airborne sources: plant pollen and mold spores.


Microscopic pollen grains released by trees in the spring easily infiltrate homes. Indoors, pollen triggers allergic responses when inhaled by susceptible individuals. Because the entire air volume inside your home circulates through your HVAC system five to seven times daily, the system can be a helpful ally in controlling spring allergens like pollen.


Active mold growth inside a home releases microscopic spores. Airborne mold spores contain mycotoxins that may cause symptoms in certain persons when inhaled. Because mold growth requires moisture — including high humidity — to thrive, it tends to be more active in spring and summer.

Controlling Spring Allergens

UV Light Technology

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a proven, effective method to destroy spring allergens that originate from non-plant sources. Commonly utilized in hospitals and other health facilities to sterilize surfaces, UV light supports healthy indoor air quality by disrupting the DNA of airborne microorganisms and preventing reproduction.

Installed inside your home ductwork—and usually at another central location such as the A/C evaporator coil—by an HVAC contractor, these compact UV bulbs continuously expose the system airflow to the disinfecting power of ultraviolet light, destroying up to 99 % of reproductive mold spores, bacteria and viruses within 24 hours.
