Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our between-the-glass technology doesn’t just provide easy cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Danville home. Based on statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts one out of every five 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 approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost as a result of allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Given the fact that 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 homeowner smokes. Normal roomside blinds collect 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Pella® Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still provide the protection from light that you want with an easy-to-operate switch. Learn more about our exclusive between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
