Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification

June 24, 2015

It’s the most congested time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is in the air. If you’re done spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help ease some of the irritation.

Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. In fact, indoor air may be more polluted than outdoor air and we’re spending around 90% of our lives 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 kinds of indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleans your home’s air more effectively 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.

  • Change your shoes before coming inside.
  • Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it regularly.
  • If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, clean up.
  • If you have a dog or any animals that run outdoors, wash 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 an alternative 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 regular air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is lined with a light-activated catalyst.

The end result is to make your home as purified as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
