Windows to Help Reduce Asthma, Allergy Symptoms

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: DecorDoorsWindows

Do you suffer from itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose? Allergy sufferers certainly recognize these symptoms, which can make life uncomfortable. An estimated 50 million people suffer from allergies — making it the fifth-leading chronic disease in the U.S. among all ages, and the third most common chronic disease among those under 18 years of age.

While there is no cure for allergies, they can be managed with proper prevention and treatment. This includes making simple changes in your home, yard and lifestyle.

If you or family members have allergies and/or asthma, consider your indoor air quality. Installing new windows and doors can improve indoor air quality and help reduce symptoms by reducing allergy-aggravating dust. Pella Designer Series® windows and patio doors feature optional between-the-glass blinds, shades or decorative panels that prevent certain indoor airborne allergens from accumulating on the surface area of blinds or shades.

In fact, window blinds and shades often collect dust and allergens that can pollute indoor air when they are raised or lowered. A university study found windows with traditional room-side blinds collected 200 times more of certain indoor airborne allergens than Pella Designer Series products.

“As a window and door industry leader, Pella strives to provide products that help builders, designers and homeowners create healthier, more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly homes,” said marketing specialist Breanne Patel of Pella’s Heritage Division. “Pella Designer Series windows and doors with between-the-glass window fashions help reduce certain indoor airborne allergens and can greatly improve the energy efficiency of your home.”

In addition, Pella’s exclusive snap-in between-the-glass grilles, blinds, shades or decorative panels can be switched out or added according to your life or decor changes with virtually endless color, fabric and style choices.

And because Designer Series products feature no potentially hazardous roomside cords, the between-the-glass blinds and shades are a natural for homes with children and pets.
