It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is everywhere. If you’re done 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 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 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 more effectively than any other single system you can get.
There are also a few things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the pollutants in your home.
- Take off your shoes before coming inside.
- Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently.
- If you’ve been working out in the yard or garden, clean up.
- If you have a dog or any pets that play 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 another 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 goal is to make your home as purified as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can.
