Sniffling, sneezing, and itchy eyes. If you’re a fall allergy sufferer, you know these symptoms all too well. They can ruin a beautiful autumn day, for sure. Outside, it’s difficult to get away from the pollen and other allergens that can irritate you and disrupt your life. But did you know they can also get into your living space indoors? Pollen and mold can be brought inside on your shoes and clothes, and unfortunately can be circulated throughout your home via your ducts.
But fortunately, you can take measures to prevent this, when you choose indoor air quality (IAQ) products for your home. Today, there are a number of different products that work directly with your home’s HVAC system. That means you can keep pollen, dust, mold spores and other irritants from contaminating your indoor air – helping you breathe easier this allergy season.

One of the problems with today’s homes is how airtight they can be. Modern homes are built with efficiency in mind – but that can also mean that allergens get trapped inside, and are circulated over and over again whenever the home’s comfort system is operating. That’s why it can be important for some homeowners to choose to install IAQ products that can mitigate some of this concern. Here are a few IAQ products available for your home:
- Air Filters: Air filters in general can help trap particles that otherwise would circulate through your home, but there are some that are advanced enough to trap very tiny particles, like mold spores, bacteria and more. Your HVAC professional can help you choose the right air filter for your needs.
- Air Cleaners: Whole-house air cleaners are installed directly into your home’s return air ducts. They trap particles as the air passes through your system. Electronic air cleaners, unlike filters, never need replacing but they should be maintained by your HVAC technician.
- Ultraviolet Air Cleaners: These types of cleaners work especially well for people who need an added layer of protection against bacteria and viruses, because the UV light in the system kills these pathogens, leaving your indoor air pure and free of contaminants.
