Allergies, Clean Air, & You

     You know the misery! The itchy eyes, the runny nose, sneezing, and coughing. Even if you stay inside most of the time there seems little relief. In fact sometimes the symptoms of allergies get worse. Why is that?
     Well, it is reported that in the spring most allergy symptoms are caused by pollen or mold spores. In fact, up to 72 trillion allergens find their way into your home every day! Mold spores can irritate the respiratory system. Dander from pets can float in the air and be an irritant.
Then there are those pesky dust mites that lurk in bedding, upholstery and other soft material and generate irritating waste particles (poop) that become airborne. Of course DUST is the big culprit. Did you know that the average home generates about 40 pounds of dust per year in a 1500 square foot home. Yikes! If you live in the Treasure Valley of Idaho you know what I am talking about, don't you?
     The other factor in allergies and clean air is, homes built today are more airtight then ever, trapping more allergens indoors. So now 70% of U.S. households are affected by allergies or asthma.
Solution? Improve your indoor air quality by installing a 'whole-house' electronic air cleaner such as,
TRANE CleanEffects. As published in BioMed Central Journal, Trane CleanEffects has been shown to remove up to 99.98 percent of particles and allergens from the filtered air. It traps particles as small as .1 microns! That is 100 times smaller than a human hair. If will even capture influenza virus. comfortguyjerry has one in his home and my wife loves it.
