Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just provide low-maintenance cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Syracuse home. Based upon statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 1 out of 5 people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The estimated cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost as a result of allergies, such as hay fever. Over 90% of our life 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 resident smokes. Typical roomside blinds accumulate 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Pella® Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are safe from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still offer the protection from outdoor activity that you desire with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
