It’s estimated that 24.5 million Americans suffer from asthma ,while more than 50 million of us suffer from allergies. That’s 1 in 5 Americans! In our house of six, two of us suffer from allergies and I am one of them.
Allergies are the fifth leading chronic disease in the U.S. and the third most common chronic disease among children. With them being so common, I want to share some ideas that will help fight allergies in the home.
Focus on your indoor air quality. You can do this with an HVAC system that provides whole-home solutions, like the ones that Lennox provides. We’ve heard amazing things about their Dave Lennox Signature® Collection line of products line of products and the new PureAir™ S. Their iComfort® ultra-smart touchscreen thermostat is also super cool – you can adjust the temp over Wi-Fi on your phone, tablet, or computer. Getting one is on the top of our wishlist!
Clean mold and condensation from window frames and sills.
Remove clutter – The more you have, the more places you have for allergens to collect. Remove items that collect dust, such as magazines, toys, and books.
As much as we love our four-legged friends, keep them off the furniture! Keeping your pets out of the bedroom and off the living room furniture can help to reduce dander and prevent sneezing fits and watery/itchy eyes.
Wash linens and clothes regularly (we toss linens in a separate laundry basket in our laundry room to make it easier to sort – when we are ready to do a load of laundry).
Put allergy-proof covers on pillows, mattresses, and comforters to ward off dust mites
Remember to close your windows. While my wife loves to have the windows open, it makes my allergies worse because it stirs up dust and allergens. We keep the windows closed, especially during spring, and we rely on air conditioning.
There are certain types of airborne impurities that can cause allergies: Particles (dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen), Mold (mildew, germs) and Chemical Vapors (Odors generated by cleaning products, paint, adhesives). While filtration can take care of some of these pollutants, a UV germicidal light can add an extra layer of protection for the cleanliness, and comfort, of your air. Lennox Healthy Climate® germicidal lights use intense rays of ultraviolet light to control and kill contaminants.
Airborne impurities can irritate your eyes, nose, lungs, and create odors which will make your family and your home uncomfortable. Lennox provides your home with solutions to these issues, which will give everyone peace of mind.
Many of Lennox’ products can help you combat allergens, like their PureAir™ Air Purification System. It is the only system of its kind on the market – it uses three different types of air cleaning technology to fight all three classes of contaminants.
The PureAir™ system is a great whole-home air purification system because it improves indoor air quality better than any single system you can buy. Many technologies only combat one or two categories of air contaminants, and often only in a single room, but the PureAir™ system works for the entire house. It also doesn’t produce any ozone as a by-product and actively works to reduce ozone. Ozone is a lung irritant, so this is important. The PureAir™ air purification system reduces indoor air pollutant levels through a combination of hospital-grade filtration and a contaminate destruction process called photocatalytic oxidation (PCO).
Of course, I like that the Allergen Defender feature on iComfort® S30 and E30 smart thermostats check the air quality and pollen levels in your zip code and automatically adjusts the fans in your system as needed.
Allergies can certainly be a pain: physically and mentally, but having a great system in place in place can cut down on the suffering.
