Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow simple cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and creates healthier air inside your Winston-Salem 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 annual cost that dealing with allergies adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost due to allergies, such as hay fever. Over 90% of our life is spent indoors. Given the fact that we are a nation 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. Ordinary roomside blinds collect 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 little hands, but they still provide the protection from light that you need with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our exclusive between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages. Visit our Winston-Salem showroom or schedule a free in-home consultation to try this technology for yourself. You’ll see an allergen reduction just days after adding between-the-glass fashions to your space.
