It’s the sneeziest 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 ease some of the irritation.
Allergens and irritants aren’t only lingering outdoors. in reality, indoor air may 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 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 types 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 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.
- Find 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 animals that go outdoors, bathe 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 a different 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 consist of a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is covered with a light-activated catalyst.
