Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification

June 24, 2015

It’s the sneeziest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is all around. 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 reality, 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 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 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.

  • Take off your shoes before coming inside.
  • Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it often.
  • If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, take a shower.
  • If you have a dog or any pets 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 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 include a normal air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is lined with a light-activated catalyst.
