Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification

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 relieve 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 make breathing easier for you.

No home is completely protected from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from letting the outdoor air 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 impacting your home’s air. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common.

There are several things that you can do to limit tracking allergens inside your home too.

  • Take off your shoes before you come inside after working outside
  • After doing yardwork20, 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 track in allergens

Among homeowners, there can be some confusion 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 rid the air of as many particles as an air purifier removes. This is mainly 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 indoor living environment 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 as homeowners aim for when getting a home. After all, who wants to come home after a long day and feel miserable?
