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 what season 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 the picture. We’ve already discussed the benefits that air filtration can provide, 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 permitting the outdoor air into your home when pollen, dust and ragweed fill the spring, summer and fall air. The goal is to make you more comfortable by diminishing or completely eliminating those irritants from reducing your indoor air quality. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common. There are action steps that you can do to keep from tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you enter the home after working outside After doing yardwork20, head 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 play outdoors, make sure you are brushing and bathing them frequently so that they don’t track in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some confusion 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 free the air of as many particles as an air purifier removes. This is mostly 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 tackling those aggressive allergies and making your home an oasis of relief when the outdoor air is working to make it difficult to bear. Having a comfortable home that you look forward to being in is important and something that all homeowners aim for when purchasing a home.
