Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just provide low-maintenance cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and creates healthier air inside your Terre Haute home. According to 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 annual cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $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. Because we are a country 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. Typical 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 messes, but they still offer the protection from outdoor activity that you need with an easy-to-operate switch. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass features on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
