Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the most congested 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 clear some of the discomfort. 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 lives 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 cleans your home’s air greater than any other single system you can buy. There are also some things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home. Change your shoes before coming inside. Buy a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently. If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, rinse off. If you have a dog or any pets that play outdoors, clean 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 a different 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 consist of a regular air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is lined with a light-activated catalyst.
