Invest in Clean Air with a Room Air Purifier

Focus on Energy is here to help this allergy season with these simple tips and tools to avoid increasing your tissue consumption. Open windows, clothes worn outside, pets, and more can all bring allergens into your home. A room air purifier from the Focus on Energy marketplace and a few simple changes at home can help you breathe a little easier.

If you suffer from seasonal or pet allergies, you are probably all too familiar with itchy eyes, runny noses, headaches, and plethora of other symptoms. Fight those symptoms indoors with an ENERGY STAR® certified HEPA room air purifier and remove up to 99.7% of allergen particles from the air in your home, including pollen, mold, pet dander, smoke, and airborne particles with a size of .3 microns. And when allergy season ends, room air purifiers will continue to do their job, letting you enjoy fresh, clean air in your home year-round. In addition to cleaning your air, air purifiers will also remove dust from the air, which means you won’t have to dust as often!

ENERGY STAR ®certified air purifiers are 27% more efficient than conventional models, so you won’t have to worry about a significantly higher energy bill from running a new appliance in your home. Some air purifiers can automatically detect the air quality in your home, so they won’t have to be constantly on, and quiet fans mean it won’t distract you from your work or keep you up at night. The Focus on Energy marketplace carries only ENERGY STAR® certified room air purifiers—get yours today!

Change or Clean Your Air Filters

Keep your heating and cooling systems running efficiently by changing or cleaning the filters on the manufacturers recommended schedule. Old filters won’t function as well, allowing more airborne particles to make their way into your home. Filters that haven’t been changed or cleaned recently can also block airflow, causing your appliances to run inefficiently and use excess energy.

Shut Your Windows and Doors

Open windows are a lovely way to enjoy some fresh air, a summer breeze, and warm weather. During allergy season though that air can trigger your symptoms. Stop letting those allergens directly into your home by shutting your windows during high pollen count days. You can check your weather app to see which allergens are on the rise in your area to see if you can enjoy an open window or not.

Remove Allergens from Your Clothes

When you spend time outside, your hair and clothing can collect pollen. By changing your clothes after you come inside, you won’t be in close contact with that pollen anymore. Showering before bed can also remove pollen from your hair, so you won’t keep breathing in allergens while you sleep, allowing you to wake up refreshed.

You should also consider ordering a FREE energy-saving pack to improve the efficiency of your shower.
