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 discomfort.
Allergens and irritants aren’t only residing outdoors. Actually, 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 destroy 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 cleans your home’s air better than any other single system you can purchase.
There are also some things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the allergens in your home.
- Remove your shoes before coming inside.
- Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently.
- If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, clean up.
- If you have a dog or any pets 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 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 include a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is covered with a light-activated catalyst.
The end result is to make your home as comfortable as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can. That’s the purpose the team at H&C Heating and Cooling in Laurel works with you to change any indoor air quality matters you may be experiencing and works to find a solution that helps you and your home.
