It’s the sneeziest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is in the air. If you’re sick of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help alleviate some of the irritation.
Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. in reality, indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air and we’re spending around 90% of our time indoors. The ragweed, pollen and dust from the outside air becomes 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 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 allergens in your home.
- Take off 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, clean up.
- If you have a dog or any furry friends that go outdoors, wash 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 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 regular air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is covered with a light-activated catalyst.
