Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification

June 24, 2015

We’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 bother you the most, everyone wants to ease the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to play. 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 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 minimizing 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 reduce tracking allergens inside your home too.

  • Take off your shoes before you come back 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 play outdoors, make sure you are brushing and bathing them often so that they don’t transport in allergens

Among homeowners, there can be some puzzlement as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Basically, 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 does. This is largely 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.

When it comes down to it, what really matters is confronting 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 relax in is important and something that all homeowners aim for when getting a home. Besides, who wants to come home after a long day and feel miserable?
