UV Can Help Reduce Allergy Symptoms

  UV Fights Allergy  UV facts

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. More than 20 percent of all adults and children suffer from some allergy.

There are many allergens that are not affected by UV, like dust and pollen, but the American-Lights® UV air cleaner can play a significant role in the Secondary Allergy Prevention, particularly where airborne microbial allergens are the cause of allergy symptoms. The UV system can be very effective in reducing the airborne allergens such as mold, fungi, spores, dust mites and their by-products.

When it comes to allergy prevention one of the most important things you can do is implement indoor environmental control because you spend most of your time indoor. You can avoid some aeroallergens like tobacco smoke and airborne pet dander by not allowing smoking or pets in your home but you can't forbid the mold and spores from growing inside your HVAC system. This is where the American-Lights® UV unit can play its strategic role. If properly installed the UV system will eliminate the mold growth on the coil and drain pan and greatly reduce* all airborne germs that pass through the ducts by disinfecting the air with ultraviolet (UV) light.

* Based on UV dose.

People Often Mistake Ordinary Allergy for Toxic Mold Syndrome

A new study indicates that many people suffering from toxic mold syndrome - often blamed on a kind of black mold that grows on damp indoor surfaces - likely have more ordinary illnesses - mold allergy and allergic reactions to mold particles.
