Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t only allow easy cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Concord 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 leading 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 as a result of allergies, such as hay fever. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime 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 outpaces outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the resident smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds accumulate 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 shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still provide the protection from outdoor activity that you need with an easy-to-operate knob. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
