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 everywhere. If you’re tired of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help alleviate some of the discomfort. Allergens and irritants aren’t only residing outdoors. in reality, 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 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 get. 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. Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently. If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, take a shower. If you have a dog or any furry friends that run 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 another 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 comprise of a regular air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is coated with a light-activated catalyst.
