Do Air Purifiers Remove Allergens in Your Home?

If you or your family members suffer from allergies, you know how miserable these conditions can be. From nasal congestion to sore throat to itchy eyes and sneezing; allergies can cause a whole slew of health issues and discomfort.

Finding a way to control, trap, and eliminate indoor allergens can help those with allergies, asthma and other respiratory illnesses alleviate many of those symptoms, while allowing them to breathe easier and live a more comfortable life.

One way to help reduce the exposure to indoor allergens is through the installation of a whole house air purification system. Air purifiers are installed directly to your home’s HVAC unit and provide filtration to the entire home, unlike portable air purifiers which provide coverage to just one room or area.

To learn more about the benefits of having an air purification system installed in your Indianapolis or Central Indiana home, or to schedule installation service, contact the NATE-certified technicians at Thiele Heating & Air Conditioning today.

What Are Some Common Indoor Allergens?

When we think about common allergens, we often think about the outdoors and pollen from trees, grass and weeds. These are seasonal allergies and can cause significant discomfort to allergy sufferers.

Pollens can make their way inside through a variety of different means, including open doors and windows and clothing, shoes and pets. Aside from pollen, there are allergens that can wreak havoc on your indoor air quality year-round.

Indoor allergens can also include:

  • Mold spores
  • Dust mites
  • House dust
  • Pet dander
  • Cockroaches
  • Fabrics

Do Whole House Air Purifiers Work Against Allergens?

Most air purifiers, including the units Thiele offers, are fitted directly into your home’s HVAC unit to provide coverage to the entire home. Some of the most popular models we offer include the Reme-Halo Whole Home In-Duct Air Purifier and the iWave air purifier. We also install the Evolution Air Cleaner from Bryant.

  • The Reme-Halo model uses low-level, airborne hydrogen peroxide throughout the living areas and rooms to reduce common pollutants, viruses and bacteria. It neutralizes pollutants and allergens at the source for improved indoor air quality and relief from common pollutants.
  • The IWave is installed in your air conditioning unit and is also effective at removing pollutants, smoke and even pathogens such as mold, bacteria and viruses. When air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the unit reduce the number of airborne particles and pathogens for a healthier living environment.
  • The Evolution Air Purifier, meanwhile, traps up to 95% of particles, including allergens, with its capture-and-kill technology. 

Even the best air purifier won’t be able to catch every single allergen that comes into your home. Although it’s not certain that every allergen will be caught, the installation of a whole home air purifier will dramatically reduce the number of allergens floating around your home for improved indoor air quality.

So the answer to whether air purifiers work against allergens is a resounding “yes!”
