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 ease some of the annoyance. Allergens and irritants aren’t only lingering outdoors. Actually, indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air and we’re spending around 90% of our leisure 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 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. Buy 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 run 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 killing as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and include a regular air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is coated 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.
