Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015We’re already in the middle of what allergy sufferers consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter what season your allergies trouble you the most, everyone wants to alleviate 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 offer, so why not take a closer look at one more tool that can get you back to breathing a little easier. No home is immune from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from allowing 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 reducing 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 a few things that you can do to reduce tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you come inside after working outside After finishing20, 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 go outside, make sure you are brushing and bathing them often so that they don’t transport 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 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 confronting those aggressive allergies and making your indoor living environment an oasis of relief when the outdoor air can make it difficult to bear. Having a comfortable home that you look forward to being in is important and something that we as homeowners aim for when getting a home.
