Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our between-the-glass technology doesn’t only provide low-maintenance cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Denver 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 leading chronic diseases. The annual cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is nearly $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 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 occupant smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds gather 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 protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still provide the protection from the sun that you need with an easy-to-operate switch. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass window fashions on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
