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 ease some of the irritation. Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. Actually, 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 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 cleanses your home’s air better than any other single system you can purchase. There are also a few things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the allergens 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 pets that play outdoors, wash 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 comprise of a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is lined with a light-activated catalyst. The purpose is to make your home as comfortable as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
