It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is everywhere. If you’re sick of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help clear 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 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 different indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleans your home’s air greater than any other single system you can buy.
There are also some things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home.
- Change your shoes before coming inside.
- Buy a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently.
- If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, rinse off.
- If you have a dog or any furry friends 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 a different 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 consist of a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is lined with a light-activated catalyst.
