Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification

June 24, 2015

It’s the most congested time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is all around. 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 is possibly 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 evict 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 greater than any other single system you can buy.

There are also some 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 relaxing out in the yard or garden, clean up.
  • If you have a dog or any furry friends that play outdoors, bathe 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 destroying as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and consist of a regular air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is lined with a light-activated catalyst.

The goal 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 reason the team at Scott Temperature in Lawrence works with you to tackle any indoor air quality issues you may be experiencing and works to find a solution that fits you and your home.
