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 tired of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help clear some of the irritation. Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. in reality, indoor air can 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 destroy 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 purchase. There are also a few things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the pollutants in your home. Take off your shoes before coming inside. Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it often. If you’ve been working out in the yard or garden, clean up. If you have a dog or any pets that go 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 killing 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 insert that is lined 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.
