Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 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 clear some of the irritation. Allergens and irritants aren’t only lingering outdoors. in reality, 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 transfers to your inside air. An air purifier will kill 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 filters your home’s air greater than any other single system you can buy. There are also a few things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home. Remove your shoes before coming inside. Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it often. If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, clean up. If you have a dog or any animals that go outdoors, bathe 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 a different system and are not capable of removing as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and comprise of a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is coated with a light-activated catalyst.
