It’s the sneeziest 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 alleviate some of the discomfort.
Allergens and irritants aren’t only lingering outdoors. Actually, 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 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 cleans your home’s air better than any other single system you can purchase.
There are also some things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the allergens in your home.
- Remove your shoes before coming inside.
- Find a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it regularly.
- If you’ve been working out in the yard or garden, clean up.
- If you have a dog or any pets that run 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 destroying as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and comprise of a normal air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is lined with a light-activated catalyst.
The goal is to make your home as purified as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
