If you have pets or pet allergies, then you’re probably very familiar with pet dander. For those of you that don’t know, pet dander is a combination of bits of skin, hair, and saliva from your furry friends. It is lightweight and can float around in the air for hours before it sticks onto a surface. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation, people with pet allergies have reactions to harmless proteins (called allergens) in pet dander. These reactions can cause the eyes and nose to swell and itch and can also cause breathing problems including coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. (Read more information at the Asthma and Allergy Foundation website.)
To help combat the effects of pet dander, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation recommends adding an air cleaner to your house. We can install a variety of different air cleaner solutions in your house, including the Lennox HC16 Home Air Cleaner. The Lennox HC16 boasts the “Good Housekeeping Seal”, has been rated the #1 whole-home filtration system by a leading consumer magazine, and provides filtration levels high enough to meet standards for general surgery. Best of all, it works with your existing heating and cooling system and uses no additional energy.
