Allergy Season is Here - Breathe Easy in Your Home With an Air Purifier

If you’re like a lot of people in the Thibodaux, LA area, you probably don’t entirely escape your allergy symptoms when you retreat indoors.

Due to a buildup of allergens such as dust, mold spores or pollen in your HVAC system, your indoor allergy symptoms could just be bad, if not worse than the ones you experience while outside. It’s actually a very common phenomenon. Indoor air becomes far more polluted than outdoor air if left untreated and up to 2 to 5 times more toxic.

Why is Indoor Air so Polluted?

In your home, pollutants floating in and out of your lungs everyday include:

  • Viruses

  • Fungi

  • Germs

  • Cigarette Smoke

  • Pollen From Outside

  • Dust

  • Bacteria

  • Dander

  • Mold, etc.

There are two major contributors to this allergen dilemma in addition to what is present in the air due to the outside environment and indoor inhabitants of the home:

  • Modern Heating & Air – Your HVAC system works by having your home sealed off from the outside air. It traps contaminants so that they have no way of escaping. It sure feels nice to crank your AC, but it does come at a price.

  • No Sunlight – UV rays actually help keep the air clean outside. Direct sun exposure kills many spores & bacteria by destroying DNA or RNA.

The UV Purifier Solution

A purifier can eliminate the air contaminants with very little effort on your part.

Can you trust them? Yes, you can trust that a purifier will eliminate pollutants from the air as much as you trust the EPA and FDA certified labs where this technology was tested.

The real question is if they are a viable option for your home. Doug’s can say with certainty that UV purifiers can be a successful solution for allergies in any home. This is because they are small, easy to install and maintain, and they fit right in your duct work where they pollutants are cycling through.

Common Questions

Are the UV Rays in Air Purifiers Safe?

Yes, the UV rays are perfectly safe. They don’t reach past your HVAC system, and if you were to come in direct contact, it would be like the sun streaming through your windows.

Do UV Air Purifiers Emit Ozone?

There is quite a bit of misinformation on this topic floating around the Internet. The answer is no for our UV air purifiers. There is no “ozone byproduct” in Doug’s products. This is a concern for companies that do not build their products safely, which is why you always want to go with a trusted company for your indoor air quality.
