Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the sneeziest 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 ease some of the discomfort. Allergens and irritants aren’t only found 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 transfers to your inside air. An air purifier will destroy 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 cleanses your home’s air greater than any other single system you can buy. There are also other things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home. Remove your shoes before coming inside. Buy a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it regularly. If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, rinse off. If you have a dog or any furry friends that run outdoors, wash 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 an alternative 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 regular air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is covered with a light-activated catalyst. The goal is to make your home as purified as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
