Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification

June 24, 2015

It’s the most congested time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is in the air. If you’re done spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help clear some of the annoyance.

Allergens and irritants aren’t only lingering outdoors. in reality, indoor air is possibly 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 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 more effectively than any other single system you can purchase.

There are also other things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home.

  • Take off your shoes before coming inside.
  • Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently.
  • If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, take a shower.
  • If you have a dog or any furry friends that run 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 another 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 comprise of a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is covered with a light-activated catalyst.
