Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is everywhere. If you’re tired of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help ease some of the annoyance. Allergens and irritants aren’t only residing outdoors. In fact, 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 becomes 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 more effectively than any other single system you can purchase. There are also some 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 frequently. If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, clean up. If you have a dog or any animals that play 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 another 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 include a normal air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is covered with a light-activated catalyst. The purpose is to make your home as clean as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
