Can I Use My HVAC System to Reduce Allergens in My Home?

For homeowners in Dallas, TX, and the surrounding areas, the battle against airborne allergens is a year-round fight. But did you know your HVAC system can be your secret weapon? Rescue Air and Plumbing is here to guide you on how to optimize your HVAC system to fight back against these microscopic invaders.

Why Your Basic Air Filter Isn't Enough

While basic air filters are essential in trapping dust and larger particles, they may not be effective against smaller allergens such as pollen, pet dander, and mold spores. These tiny particles can easily pass through standard filters, leading to allergy flare-ups and decreased indoor air quality.

The Power of Whole-Home Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Whole-home indoor air quality solutions offer a more comprehensive approach. They work in tandem with your HVAC system, filtering the air throughout your entire home rather than just one room. This ensures that every breath you take is cleaner and healthier.

Popular types of whole-home indoor air quality solutions include:

  • Air Filtering Purifiers: These devices use advanced filtration systems to capture and eliminate allergens, bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants from your home's air.
  • UV Lights: Installed within your HVAC system, UV lights work by emitting low levels of ultraviolet radiation that can kill or deactivate biological contaminants like mold and bacteria.
  • Electrostatic Air Purifiers: Similar to air purifiers, electrostatic filters use an electric charge to trap and remove allergens from the air.
  • Ionic Air Purifiers: These devices emit negative ions that attach to airborne particles, making them heavy and causing them to fall out of the air.

Our Personal Recommendation

One whole-home solution we recommend in particular as indoor air quality experts is the Patriot IAQ system. The Patriot IAQ system is a highly effective whole-home solution, designed using advanced technology to filter out the most microscopic of indoor air hazards. Notably, the system has been proven to achieve a staggering 99.999996% reduction on microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus.

Unlike other purifiers, the Patriot IAQ system relies on powerful photocatalytic oxidation technology, which combines a UV air scrubber light and an activated carbon filtration cell. This powerful duo effectively removes almost all types of air quality hazards, without the use or production of harmful substances like hydroperoxy, peroxy, and hydroxyl radicals. The system, which is strategically mounted in the primary air vent of your indoor air conditioning unit, first strains the air through the activated carbon filter to remove particulates and odors. The air then passes by a high-power UV air scrubber lamp that neutralizes biological contaminants.

The end result is a drastic improvement in indoor air quality, tackling all types of airborne contaminants including particulates, mold, bacteria, viruses, germs, VOCs, hidden odors, smoke smells, toxic fumes, and even pet dander.
