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 alleviate the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to play. We’ve already talked about the benefits that air filtration can provide, so why not read up on one more tool that can help you breath easier. No home is free from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from letting 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 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 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, 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 have been outdoors, make sure you are brushing and bathing them frequently 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 largely 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 undertaking those feisty allergies and making your house 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 purchasing a home.
