The arrival of spring means blooming trees, flower buds, warmer weather, and unfortunately, the impending onslaught of spring allergies for the millions of Americans who suffer each year from seasonal allergies.
Spring allergies can lead to miserable symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, congestion and itchy, red and watery eyes. Aside from feeling sick, allergies can lead to sick days, loss of productivity, and even depression.
There are several ways to reduce the symptoms of spring allergies, whether it’s through medications, keeping windows and doors closed, or avoiding outdoor activities during certain times of the day when pollen counts are high. One of the best ways to reduce the symptoms of allergies is by improving indoor air quality through the installation of a whole house air purifier.

What is an Air Purifier?
Air purifiers are installed with a home’s HVAC system to treat the air as it circulates throughout your home. These systems eliminate contaminants and particles within your home’s air supply, such as bacteria, germs, viruses, pet dander, dust mites and, yes, allergens. Air purifiers are especially popular for those who suffer from asthma, allergy symptoms, and other respiratory illnesses. Energy Savers offers two air purifications systems for homes in the Columbus, GA, area.
UV Air Purifier
The Solaris Photocatalytic (PCO) Air Purifier combines the technologies of UV light, photocatalytic oxidation, and ionization to improve the air at the molecular and microscopic levels. Solaris air purifiers work continuously to break down the molecules of contamination and destroy toxic fumes, household odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Infinity Air Purifier DGAPA
The Infinity air purifier works with your HVAC system to improve the health of your home’s air supply. The Infinity air purifier uses a “catch and kill” approach. It traps up to 95% of particles in micron size range 1.0 to 3.0, including common allergens, and then uses an electrical charge to kill them.
Do Air Purifiers Eliminate Allergens?
Typically, springtime is the worst time of year for allergy sufferers as plants and trees bloom and release pollen into the air. Pollen can make its way indoors through open windows and doors and on clothing and shoes.
Here are a few reasons why air purifiers are helpful in fighting spring allergies indoors:
Pollen produced from trees, flowers, and grass is one of the main causes of spring allergies. Air purifiers with true HEPA filters are great at capturing very fine particulate matter such as mold, dust, and dander. Using a HEPA air purifier is a great way to clean the air and remove pollutants and unwanted air particles.
Mold growth is common during the spring, especially after heavy rainfall, which can accelerate its growth. When people breathe in mold spores, it can trigger allergy symptoms and lead to health and medical issues. Fortunately, air purifiers are great at capturing mold spores and removing them from your home’s air supply.
Trapping other indoor allergens
Pollen isn’t the only allergen which can cause spring allergy symptoms. Whole house air purifiers can also capture irritants like dust, odors, tobacco smoke, pet dander, and other contaminants or particulate matter.

Indoor air can be five times more contaminated than outdoor air. By having a whole house air purifier installed in your home, you’ll eliminate air pollution and have healthier air in no time! Air purifiers remove and eliminate common indoor allergens that are especially harmful to those who suffer from spring allergies, asthma, and other respiratory illnesses.
There are several different types of air purifiers to choose from on the market. When you contact the IAQ experts at Energy Savers for the installation of an air purification unit, we’ll address any indoor air quality issues you may be experiencing and find the right products to deliver better quality air.
