It’s the most congested 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 annoyance.
Allergens and irritants aren’t only lingering outdoors. Actually, 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 types of indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleanses your home’s air greater than any other single system you can get.
There are also other things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the pollutants in your home.
- Change your shoes before coming inside.
- Find a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it often.
- If you’ve been working out in the yard or garden, rinse off.
- If you have a dog or any pets that run outdoors, bathe 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 killing as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and comprise of a normal air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is coated with a light-activated catalyst.
