Woman Enjoying Air Purification

Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification

It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is everywhere. If you’re done spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help alleviate some of the irritation.

Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. Actually, indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air and we’re spending around 90% of our time indoors. The ragweed, pollen and dust from the outside air becomes your inside air. An air purifier will kill those irritants and particles from your home’s air. In fact, Lennox’s Pureair® Air Purification system combats all three kinds of indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleanses your home’s air greater than any other single system you can get.

There are also a few things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the allergens in your home.

  • Remove your shoes before coming inside.
  • Buy a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently.
  • If you’ve been spending time out in the yard or garden, rinse off.
  • If you have a dog or any pets that go outdoors, clean and brush them frequently.

You may be curious what the difference is between air filtration and an air purification system. Air filters are part of an alternative system and are not capable of removing as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and consist of a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is covered with a light-activated catalyst.

The purpose is to make your home as clean as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can. That’s the reason the professionals at Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. in West Columbia works with you to change any indoor air quality problems you may be experiencing and works to find a solution that helps you and your home.
