Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow easy cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Kingston home. According to statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 1 out of 5 people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the leading chronic diseases. The annual cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is nearly $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost because of allergies, such as hay fever. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime is spent indoors. Given the fact that we are a society of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution exceeds outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the homeowner smokes. Typical roomside blinds accumulate 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. These between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still offer the protection from the sun that you need with an easy-to-operate switch. Learn more about our innovative between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
