Protect Your Home Against Allergens

Allergens are as common a problem in Beaverton, OR as high temperatures, and if you or a member of your family suffers from allergies, you know how miserable it can be. Your home should be a haven against pollen, pet dander and other types of allergens, but the simple act of opening the door can let more in and there’s only so many hours in the day you can devote to cleaning. What’s to be done?

Luckily, a trained HVAC technician can offer you indoor air quality options that not only cut down on the amount of allergens in your home, but can help the rest of your system function more efficiently and leave your indoor air quality as clean and healthy as you might like. We’ve provided some examples before, to give you an idea of what we have in mind.

UV Air Purifiers

A UV air purifier uses ultraviolet light, shining across the apex of your ducts, to keep your air free of germs and similar contaminants. The light is harmless to human beings and “higher” lifeforms like pets, but germs and bacteria that touch it are either instantly killed or rendered unable to reproduce. The system works quite well and beyond periodically changing out the light bulb, it requires very little in the way of maintenance.


High humidity can be the bane of homeowners’ existence in the summertime, making your skin feel clammy and gross. More importantly for those with allergies, high humidity can foster the growth of mold and bacteria in your home. You can put a stop to that with the installation of a whole-house dehumidifier, which will remove the excess moisture from the air and keep those unwelcome¬†growths in check. (Dehumidifiers can also ease the burden on your air conditioner, lowering your monthly bills in many cases.)
