It’s the most congested time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is everywhere. If you’re done 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. in reality, 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 becomes your inside air. An air purifier will kill those irritants and particles from your home’s air. In fact, Lennox’s Pureair® Air Purification system combats all three kinds of indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleans your home’s air greater 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.
- Buy a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it regularly.
- If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, rinse off.
- If you have a dog or any pets that go outdoors, bathe and brush them frequently.
You may be wondering 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 removing 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 covered with a light-activated catalyst.
The end result is to make your home as purified as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
