We’re already in the middle of what many of us consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter when your allergies trouble you the most, everyone wants to ease the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to the picture. We’ve already talked about the benefits that air filtration can offer, so why not take a closer look at 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 inside 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 impacting your home’s air. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common.
There are action steps that you can do to limit tracking allergens inside your home too.
- Take off your shoes before you enter the home 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 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 rid the air of as many particles as an air purifier does. 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 confronting those aggressive allergies and making your indoor living environment an oasis of relief when the outdoor air is working to make it difficult to bear. Having a comfortable home that you want to be in is important and something that all homeowners aim for when getting a home. Because really, who wants to come home after a long day and feel miserable?
