Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow low-maintenance cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and creates healthier air inside your Newport 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 primary chronic diseases. The annual cost that dealing with allergies 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. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime is spent indoors. Because we are a country 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. Ordinary roomside blinds gather 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. These between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still deliver the protection from the sun that you want with an easy-to-operate switch. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages. Visit our Newport showroom or schedule a free in-home consultation to experience this technology yourself. You’ll see an allergen reduction shortly after adding these blinds to your room.
