Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t only offer simple cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Greenfield home. Based on statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 20% of all people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The estimated cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is almost $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. Because we are a society of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution outpaces outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the resident smokes. Normal roomside blinds accumulate 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 protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still provide the protection from light that you desire with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our exclusive between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
