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 bug you the most, everyone wants to ease the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to help. We’ve already talked about the benefits that air filtration can provide, so why not learn more about one more tool that can help you breath easier. No home is completely protected from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from letting the outdoor air inside 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 several things that you can do to reduce tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you come back inside after working outside After doing yardwork20, go 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 regularly so that they don’t track in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some misunderstanding 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 rid the air of as many particles as an air purifier removes. This is mostly due to the fact that the PureAir™ system is comprised 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. When it comes down to it, what really matters is confronting those aggressive allergies and making your indoor living environment an oasis of relief when the outdoor air is working to make it difficult to bear.
