Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015We’re already in the middle of what many people consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter at what point in the year your allergies bother you the most, everyone wants to alleviate the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to the picture. We’ve already talked about the benefits that air filtration can provide, so why not read up on one more tool that can make breathing easier for you. No home is free from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from permitting the outdoor air into your home when pollen, dust and ragweed fill the spring, summer and fall air. The goal is to make you more comfortable by reducing or completely eliminating those irritants from impacting your home’s air. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common. There are a few things that you can do to limit tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you come back inside after working outside After doing yardwork20, go back 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 regularly so that they don’t bring in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some puzzlement as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Simply put, air filters are a part of air purification systems like the PureAir™ system, but do not free the air of as many particles as an air purifier accomplishes. This is mainly due to the fact that the PureAir™ system is made up 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. Ultimately, what really matters is tackling those feisty allergies and making your house an oasis of relief when the outdoor air can make it difficult to bear. Having a comfortable home that you look forward to being in is important and something that we as homeowners aim for when purchasing a home.
