Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 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 clear some of the discomfort. Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. In fact, 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 different indoor air pollutants; airborne particles, germs and bacteria and chemical odors and vapors. It cleans your home’s air better than any other single system you can buy. There are also some things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home. Take off your shoes before coming inside. Purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it frequently. If you’ve been relaxing out in the yard or garden, take a shower. If you have a dog or any pets that run outdoors, bathe and brush them frequently. You may be pondering 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 destroying as many pollutants as an air purifier. Air purifiers are a three-part system in and of themselves and include a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal device that is coated with a light-activated catalyst. The end result is to make your home as comfortable as possible and keep you and the air you’re breathing as healthy as you can. That’s the reason the team at Quality Refrigeration in Baltimore works with you to tackle any indoor air quality problems you may be experiencing and works to find a solution that satisfies you and your home. Your home should be your sanctuary and we will use our knowledge and expertise to make your sanctuary as comfortable as possible.
