Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t only provide low-maintenance cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Haverhill 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 leading chronic diseases. The estimated cost that dealing with allergies adds to the U.S. health care system is almost $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost due to allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Because 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 occupant smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds collect 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Pella’s between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still deliver the protection from the sun that you need with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our innovative between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
