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 sick of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help clear some of the annoyance. 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 ends up in your inside air. An air purifier will destroy 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 cleanses your home’s air greater than any other single system you can get. There are also other things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the pollutants in your home. Remove your shoes before coming inside. Find a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently. If you’ve been working out in the yard or garden, take a shower. If you have a dog or any pets that run outdoors, bathe 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 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 traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is coated with a light-activated catalyst.
