Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the sneeziest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is everywhere. If you’re tired of spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help clear some of the annoyance. Allergens and irritants aren’t only found outdoors. Actually, indoor air may 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 ends up in 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 cleanses your home’s air greater than any other single system you can get. There are also other things you can do as a homeowner to help combat the irritants in your home. Remove your shoes before coming inside. Find a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it regularly. 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 wondering 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 include a normal air filter, UVA light and a metal piece that is coated with a light-activated catalyst. The goal 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 purpose the team at MPC Heating & Cooling in Chadron works with you to solve any indoor air quality issues you may be experiencing and works to find a solution that satisfies you and your home.
