Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification

June 24, 2015

It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is everywhere. If you’re tired of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help clear some of the annoyance.

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 lives indoors. The ragweed, pollen and dust from the outside air ends up in 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 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 some things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the allergens in your home.

  • Remove your shoes before coming inside.
  • Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it regularly.
  • If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, take a shower.
  • If you have a dog or any animals that go outdoors, wash 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 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 traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal device 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.
