Allergies & Asthma

Allergies are more widespread than most people realize—conservative estimates suggest that over 35 million Americans suffer from allergies. This number is likely much, much higher because some allergic reactions are so common and consistent that many sufferers perceive them as “normal.”

Allergies are simply adverse immune system reactions to substances that are harmless to most people. Common substances include:
  • Dust mites
  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Mold and mildew
  • Pet dander
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other chemicals

Allergic reactions take on many forms—ranging from mild to severe—and can occur virtually anywhere in the body. Common allergic reactions include:
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Asthma
  • Eczema—an inflammation of the skin
  • Rhinitis—an inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes
  • Allergic conjunctivitis—watery eyes

Chances are that someone close to you is afflicted with asthma. According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology, an estimated 20 million Americans suffer from asthma—including 3 million children. These numbers may be even higher due to individuals being misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all.

Asthma is a chronic lung disease in which your body’s airways become inflamed or swollen, making it difficult to breath. The severity of asthma varies from person to person. In mild cases, some people may be completely unaware that they even have the disease, attributing their symptoms to seasonal allergies or other causes. In extreme cases, asthma can be fatal. Common symptoms include:
  • Chronic coughing and wheezing
  • Shortness of breath and chest tightness
  • Rapid breathing
  • Frequent respiratory infections

Asthma is most commonly triggered by the inhaling of allergens and other airborne irritants such as:
  • Dust mites
  • Pet dander
  • Pollens
  • Mold and mildew
  • Odors
  • Smoke

How to solve these problems?
None of these reactions should ever be considered normal. Many options exist to help alleviate these conditions — and your misery. Depending on your allergy — different products may be recommended. One of the best solutions for most homes is a Whole House Air Cleaner. These Air Cleaners can capture and eliminate airborne dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander, dust mites and more, making it a tough ally in your fight against allergies.

Allergic to mold and other fungi? Dehumidifiers can help stop mold in their tracks while an Air Cleaner can remove airborne mold spores. Utilizing UV Lights provide a double whammy on mold when used with a Dehumidifier and/or Air Cleaner. Mold and other fungi can grow in your HVAC system. If you air conditioning coil becomes infested with mold — the UV Lights will destroy the spores — ensuring the spores do not re-circulate into your home’s air stream.

Ultraviolet treatment system is highly recommended for homes and families with:
  • Children or elderly present
  • Concern for maintaining energy efficiency
  • Frequent cleaning of air conditioning ductwork
  • Use of antimicrobial products
  • A humid climate
  • Closed windows and dry climate in winter
