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 brings healthier air inside your Salt Lake City home. According to statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts one out of every five people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The approximate cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is almost $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost because of allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Considering the fact that we are a nation of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution surpasses outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the resident smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds accumulate 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still provide the protection from outdoor activity that you need with an easy-to-operate switch. Learn more about our innovative between-the-glass features on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
