Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is all around. If you’re done 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. Actually, indoor air can 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 transfers to your inside air. An air purifier will evict those irritants and particles from your home’s air. In fact, Lennox’s Pureair® Air Purification system combats all three different indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleans your home’s air better than any other single system you can get. There are also a few things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home. Remove your shoes before coming inside. Find a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it often. If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, clean up. If you have a dog or any furry friends that go outdoors, wash 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 regular air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is lined with a light-activated catalyst. The goal is to make your home as purified as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
