Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the most congested time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is in the air. 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 lingering outdoors. in reality, indoor air may be more polluted than outdoor air and we’re spending around 90% of our leisure 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 filters your home’s air better 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. Remove your shoes before coming inside. Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it often. If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, take a shower. If you have a dog or any animals that run outdoors, wash 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 a different 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 consist of a traditional 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. That’s the reason the experts at Garoken Energy Co.
