How We Can Help With Your Family's Allergy Challenges

If a member of your family is experiencing any of these symptoms, we have an Air Quality Solution that can help.

"Indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times, and occasionally more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels. Indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors." -Environmental Protection Agency

Asthma or Hay Fever Symptoms

  • Indoor air can contain many things that could trigger an asthma episode of coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath.
  • Some common triggers in our home are dust, dust mites, animal dander, mold and mildew.

Consistently Missing Work or School Due to Respiratory Infections

  • The size of allergenic mite and fungal populations in a home is directly dependent upon the relative humidity.
  • Majority of adverse health effects caused by relative humidity would be minimized by maintaining indoor levels between 30% and 60%.

Combat three classes of airborne contaminants

Any substance measuring less than 100 microns in diameter is considered a particle. These particles include dust, pollen and pet dander.

Bioaerosols and Microorganisms
Microscopic organisms that grow and reproduce in warm, humid places are considered bioaerosols and microorganisms. These organisms include viruses, bacteria, mold spores, fungi and dust mites.

Odors and Chemical Vapors
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and indoor odors come from sources like cleaning suppliers, solvents used in carpeting or furniture, paints, cooking smells and pet odors.

Our Options to Improve the Quality of Your Home’s Air Quality

Lennox Healthy Climate® Products

The choice for a healthier, more comfortable home.

Having a comfortable home goes way beyond temperature settings. The quality of the air inside you house greatly affects your comfort-and health. Tiny particles like mold, bacteria and moisture can cause serious respiratory problems, while other like pet dander, pollen and dust can be irritating.

Advanced products such as air purifiers and cleaners, working together with your heating and cooling system, help reduce concentrations of allergens and other contaminants in the air. These and other indoor air quality products help improve air circulation and balance humidity levels. And unlike many competitors’ products, these systems clean the air without producing ozone, a known lung irritant.

Get Hospital Air with the Lennox PureAirTM Air Purification System

Due to recency of outbreaks no specific claims can be made on the effectiveness of any system on destroying or eliminating the virus commonly known as COVID-19

How Does It Work?

The Lennox PureAir™ system uses a media filter, Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) filter and UV light.  The PCO filter is coated with titanium dioxide that comes in contact with harmful pollutants. A UV light is shined onto the catalytic filter to create a reaction that destroys the pollutants.

What does it do?

A PureAir™ system removes 99.9% of mold spores, pollen, dust and pet dander. Removes over 95% of fine particles absorbed by the lungs, including infectious airborne bacteria and smoke down to 0.3 micron. (any substances measuring less than 100 microns** in diameter)

Removes Bioaerosols and Microorganisms (microscopic living organisms that grow and reproduce in warm, humid places)
Lennox PureAirTM Air Purification System removes more than 90% of bioaerosols down to 0.01 micron, including airborne viruses such as MRSA, flu and cold viruses.

Destroys Odors/Chemical Vapors (air contaminants in the form of gases)
Using its photocatalytic odata filter, this system destroys volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odors from sources such as cooking smells, pet odors, cleaning products, and fumes from carpeting or furniture solvents and paints. 

Pros and cons of the PureAir™ system:
On the plus side, this technology has proven to be the most effective air cleaning option available, and as a result, is used in health settings and food processing for air cleaning. This advanced air purifies use multiple means of cleaning the air and are ideal for households where members have known breathing issues including asthma, allergies and COPD. An additional benefit is that the PCO filter doesn’t hinder airflow, so your HVAC system won’t work much harder. The downside to this system is the higher cost of the PCO filters and the electricity cost to run it.

My HVAC System Already Has A Filter Do I Need a different one?
If you’re not experiencing breathing or allergy problems, adding more equipment to your HVAC system probably isn’t a cost-effective response to indoor air pollution. See the recommendations below for improving indoor air quality in any home.

For those with breathing trouble, a central air purifier can be part of a broader solution to indoor air pollutants in your home.

What is a MERV rating? 
Minimum Efficiency Reported Value (MERV):  Describes the filter’s ability to capture particles ranging from 1-16.  Typical standard fiberglass filter = MERV 1

Are UV lights worth the investment?

Your health provides the answer. If you and household members do not have breathing issues or allergies and if you’re not experiencing higher-than-normal rates of colds and other viruses, then you probably don’t need germicidal UV lights in your HVAC system.

However, some might be reading this post because those problems are a reality in your home. For you, HVAC UV lights can be part of the solution

How do UV lights work?

The three main types of UV rays are UVA, UVB, and UVC. Because UVC rays have the shortest wavelength, and therefore highest energy, they are capable of killing bacteria and viruses, also called pathogens. UVC is highly effective at decontamination because it destroys the molecular bonds that hold together the DNA of viruses and bacteria, including "superbugs," which have developed a stronger resistance to antibiotics. 

Hospitals have embraced ultraviolet (UV)  lights as a cleaning tool for years, using large, industrial-grade machines to decontaminate rooms. Now, smaller versions of UV sanitation lights are available to consumers for use in their HVAC systems.

Due to recency of outbreaks no specific claims can be made on the effectiveness of any system on destroying or eliminating the virus commonly known as COVID-19

Healthy Climate® UV Germicidal Lights

  • Help eliminate biological contaminants such as mold and bacteria
  • Highest UV light intensity on the market
  • Reduces concentrations of bioaerosols by 50% within as little as 45 minutes (based on constant air circulation in a home of 3,000 square feet using a 5 ton air handler)
  • Protects your HVAC equipment helping to keep it running smoothly and efficiently
