Combating Allergies by Improving Indoor Air Quality

Houses today are well built and better insulated. While this is good for energy savings, having a tight home also means millions of airborne particles are trapped inside being circulated throughout your house. Having a good air filtration system installed with your current HVAC system will help improve the indoor air quality in your home.

There are three types of air contaminants that can infiltrate your home. The first is air contaminants such as dust, pollen and pet dander. The second is bioaerosols and microorganisms; these are microscopic organisms that are living. The last class is odors and chemical vapors.

There are great products available that can help combat the first two types, air contaminants and bioaerosols/microorganisms in the air. Having something as simple as a Lennox Healthy Climate MERV 10 or 16 rated air cleaner can improve the air quality tremendously versus the standard pleated filters. The Lennox Healthy Climate filters are highly effective against pet dander, pollen, dust mites, viruses, bacteria, and mold. The MERV 16 rated filter can protect your family from more than 95% of allergy-aggravating particles.

If you are looking for a filtration system that can take care of all three classes of air contaminants, then the Lennox Pure Air is the perfect solution. This system even helps destroy odors such as chemical cleaning smells, cooking smells and pet odor. This system uses exclusive UVA-light technology to attack the contaminate source and leave your home with clean air.
