Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is all around. If you’re done spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help ease some of the discomfort. Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. Actually, indoor air can 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 kinds of indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleanses 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 irritants in your home. Change your shoes before coming inside. Find a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it regularly. If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, take a shower. If you have a dog or any animals that play outdoors, clean and brush them frequently. You may be curious 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 killing as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and include a normal air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is lined with a light-activated catalyst. The purpose is to make your home as purified as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can. That’s why the team at B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant works with you to change any indoor air quality issues you may be experiencing and works to find a solution that fits you and your home.
