It’s the most congested 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 residing outdoors. in reality, indoor air is possibly more polluted than outdoor air and we’re spending around 90% of our time 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 different 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 get.
There are also some 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 frequently.
- If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, take a shower.
- If you have a dog or any animals that play outdoors, wash and brush them frequently.
You may be wondering 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 removing as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and include a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is lined with a light-activated catalyst.
