Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015We’re already in the middle of what many of us consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter when your allergies trouble you the most, everyone wants to alleviate the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to help. We’ve already discussed the benefits that air filtration can provide, so why not read up on one more tool that can get you back to breathing a little easier. No home is completely protected from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from permitting the outdoor air enter into your home when pollen, dust and ragweed fill the spring, summer and fall air. The goal is to make you more comfortable by minimizing or completely eliminating those irritants from impacting your home’s air. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common. There are action steps that you can do to keep from tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you come back inside after working outside After completing20, head inside and take a quick shower to rinse off any allergens that may be on your clothes or body If you have any pets that have been outdoors, make sure you are brushing and bathing them frequently so that they don’t bring in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some confusion as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Essentially, air filters are a part of air purification systems like the PureAir™ system, but do not rid the air of as many particles as an air purifier removes. This is largely due to the fact that the PureAir™ system is comprised of a three-part system which includes a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is coated with a light-activated catalyst. In the end, what really matters is confronting those pesky allergies and making your house an oasis of relief when the outdoor air is trying to make it difficult to bear. Having a comfortable home that you want to be in is important and something that we as homeowners aim for when getting a home. Besides, who wants to come home after a long day and feel miserable?
