Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow simple cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Cape Cod 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 leading chronic diseases. The annual cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is nearly $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 homeowner smokes. Ordinary 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 safe from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still provide the protection from the sun that you desire with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our exclusive between-the-glass features on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
