We’re already in the middle of what many people consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter when your allergies trouble you the most, everyone wants to relieve 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 read up on one more tool that can make breathing easier for you.
No home is immune from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from allowing 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 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 reduce tracking allergens inside your home too.
- Take off your shoes before you come back inside after working outside
- After doing yardwork20, go back 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 transport in allergens
Among homeowners, there can be some confusion as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Essentially, 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 accomplishes. 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.
In the end, what really matters is confronting those feisty allergies and making your house 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 we as homeowners aim for when buying a home.
