Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the sneeziest 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 clear some of the discomfort. 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 time 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 types of indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleanses your home’s air more effectively than any other single system you can buy. There are also a few things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home. Change your shoes before coming inside. Find a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently. If you’ve been working out in the yard or garden, take a shower. If you have a dog or any animals that play outdoors, clean 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 a different 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 include a normal air filter, UVA light and a metal device 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.
