How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016If you’re putting up with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have poor air. As we transition from summer into fall indoor air quality becomes even more important. As the weather cools down, windows are shut and we start hanging out inside more often. For those of us that deal with allergies or asthma, poor indoor air quality could be our worst enemy. So what can we do to keep those allergens at bay? Regularly Change Your Air Filters The average air filter lasts a month or two, depending on your lifestyle (some last longer). Your air filter is the first line of defense against contaminants and allergens. The better air filters remove pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not swapping out your filter on a regular schedule, they aren’t able to do their job. An additional bonus to all the fresh air you’re breathing is that a clean filter also boosts your unit’s efficiency. UV Germicidal Lights Lennox offers the best UV light intensity on the market. Germicidal lights are an effective, non-chemical means of destroying impurities within your home’s comfort system. These lights eliminate the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that reside within your system which keeps them from growing or multiplying. Our germicidal lights lower the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as little as 45 minutes. Even when your system is not currently operating, a germicidal light will still be working to keep your air clean and healthy. Duct Cleaning The average home creates quite a bit of dirt and dust annually. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will remove dirt and debris that has added up in your system. This can help do away with any impurities that may be lodged, make your home smell nicer, and help you breathe easier. These are just a couple of the products and services that are available to improve your indoor air quality.
