Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015We’re already in the middle of what many of us 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 relieve the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to the picture. We’ve already discussed the benefits that air filtration can deliver, so why not take a closer look at one more tool that can help you breath easier. No home is immune from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from allowing the outdoor air enter into your home when pollen, dust and ragweed fill the spring, summer and fall air. The goal is to make you more comfortable by minimizing or completely eliminating those irritants from affecting the air in your home. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common. There are action steps that you can do to limit tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you come inside after working outside After completing20, 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 go outside, make sure you are brushing and bathing them often so that they don’t bring in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some confusion as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Essentially, air filters are a part of air purification systems like the PureAir™ system, but do not rid the air of as many particles as an air purifier removes. This is largely due to the fact that the PureAir™ system is composed 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 confronting those pesky allergies and making your home an oasis of relief when the outdoor air can make it difficult to bear.
