Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the most congested time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is all around. If you’re sick of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help alleviate some of the annoyance. Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. Actually, indoor air is possibly 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 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 pollutants in your home. Remove your shoes before coming inside. Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently. If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, clean up. If you have a dog or any animals that play 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 another 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 insert that is lined with a light-activated catalyst. The purpose is to make your home as purified as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
