Spring is the time for new. As nature crawls out of its winter cocoon, we humans tend to do the same thing. And a big part of that ritual is the annual cleaning out of our homes. But as you're vacuuming, dusting and wiping down your possessions, don't forget one of the most important things in your home: the air you breathe. Every day, you take in about 3,000 gallons of air. Make sure each breath is as clean and fresh as it can be.
Indoor air pollution is an unseen problem.
Just because the air in your home looks clean doesn't mean it actually is clean. In fact, indoor air pollutant levels can be up to 100 times higher than outdoor levels.* That can be a serious problem when you consider that most people spend up to 90% of their time indoors.*
The smart solution: whole-home filtration
The best way to clean the air in your home, and keep it clean, is with a whole-home filtration solution. Single-room air filtration devices can improve the air quality in one area, but they don't solve the problem. Dust and dirt can still drift in from other rooms. And what's worse, pollutants like dust, dirt and pollen can enter your home every time you open a door or window.
To stay on top of the problem, you need a solution that provides continuous filtration to every room, and every square foot of air in your home. No single whole-home solution works better than the PureAir™ Air Purification System from Lennox.
Every home typically has three major types of pollutants in the air, which can cause breathing difficulties, asthma attacks and unpleasant smells.
Airborne particles: Made up of everything from dust, dirt and pollen to cloth fibers from furnishings and clothing, airborne particles are a major source of allergies.
Germs and bacteria: Mold, fungi, spores, viruses and other tiny organisms circulating in the air can enter the lungs and make you and your family sick. They are also a major allergy trigger.
Chemical odors and vapors: Caused by everything from adhesives and cleaning products to cooking smoke and gasoline fumes from the garage. These floating gases and vapors don't just smell bad, they can irritate allergies, cause breathing difficulties and increase the risk of other serious health effects.
Multiple technologies that address all three classes of pollutant.
Unlike other whole-home filtration solutions that merely filter, PureAir uses three different types of technology to provide a powerful defense against all the impurities in your air.
Carbon Clean 16 Filtration: As the air passes through PureAir's Carbon Clean 16 filter media and charcoal filter, 99.9% of mold spores, pollen, dust and pet dander are removed. The Carbon Clean 16 Filter also removes 95% of fine particles and infectious bacteria down to 0.3 micron**, and helps reduce ozone levels.
Ultraviolet Light and the PCO Cartridge: UV light works in combination with a titanium dioxide catalyst plate to create a process known as Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO). As air flows across the catalyst plate, the plate uses PCO to break down harmful vapors, fumes and odors into harmless carbon dioxide and water.
PureAir makes your air cleaner, fresher and almost completely free of odors. So your home will smell as clean as it truly is. In fact, for every 24 hours that PureAir operates, it destroys 50% of the household odors and vapors in your air***.
Many whole-home and localized filtration solutions create ozone as they operate. Prolonged exposure to ozone can create negative effects on the lungs, including irritation, asthma and bronchitis. PureAir not only generates zero ozone, but it can actually break down existing ozone in your home, rendering it harmless.
