Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is in the air. If you’re tired of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help alleviate some of the discomfort. Allergens and irritants aren’t only lingering outdoors. in reality, indoor air is possibly more polluted than outdoor air and we’re spending around 90% of our time indoors. The ragweed, pollen and dust from the outside air ends up in 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 kinds of indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleans your home’s air greater than any other single system you can buy. There are also some things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the pollutants 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 relaxing out in the yard or garden, take a shower. If you have a dog or any animals that run outdoors, bathe and brush them frequently. You may be pondering what the difference is between air filtration and an air purification system. Air filters are part of an alternative system and are not capable of destroying as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and consist of a normal air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is lined with a light-activated catalyst. The end result is to make your home as comfortable as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
