It’s the foggiest 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 ease some of the irritation.
Allergens and irritants aren’t only residing outdoors. In fact, indoor air may 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 ends up in 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 filters your home’s air more effectively than any other single system you can purchase.
There are also a few things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home.
- Take off your shoes before coming inside.
- Buy a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it often.
- If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, rinse off.
- If you have a dog or any animals that go 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 an alternative system and are not capable of removing as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and comprise of a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is coated with a light-activated catalyst.
