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 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 help. We’ve already discussed the benefits that air filtration can deliver, so why not take a closer look at one more tool that can get you back to breathing a little easier.

No home is completely protected 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 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 keep from tracking allergens inside your home too.

  • Take off your shoes before you come inside after working outside
  • After completing20, 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 play outdoors, make sure you are brushing and bathing them frequently 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. 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 made up 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 home 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 we all aim for when getting a home. Because really, who wants to come home after a long day and feel miserable?
