Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the most congested time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is all around. If you’re tired of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help alleviate some of the annoyance. Allergens and irritants aren’t only residing outdoors. In fact, indoor air may be more polluted than outdoor air and we’re spending around 90% of our lives indoors. The ragweed, pollen and dust from the outside air becomes your inside air. An air purifier will destroy those irritants and particles from your home’s air. In fact, Lennox’s Pureair® Air Purification system combats all three types of indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It filters your home’s air more effectively than any other single system you can purchase. There are also some things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the allergens in your home. Take off your shoes before coming inside. Find a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently. If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, rinse off. If you have a dog or any pets that play outdoors, bathe and brush them frequently. You may be curious what the difference is between air filtration and an air purification system. Air filters are part of another system and are not capable of removing as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and consist of a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is coated with a light-activated catalyst. The end result is to make your home as clean as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
