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 bad air. As we transition from summer into fall indoor air quality becomes even more important. As the weather gets cooler, windows are shut and we start spending more time indoors. For those of us that suffer from allergies or asthma, poor indoor air quality may be our worst enemy. So what can we do to keep those allergens at bay? Regularly Change Your Air Filters The regular air filter lasts a month or two, depending on your lifestyle (some even more). Your air filter is the first line of defense against pollutants and allergens. The better air filters remove pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not swapping out your filter regularly, they aren’t able to do their job. An added bonus to all the fresh air you’re breathing is that a clean filter also improves your unit’s efficiency. UV Germicidal Lights Lennox offers the highest UV light intensity on the market. Germicidal lights are an effective, non-chemical means of eliminating impurities within your home’s comfort system. These lights get rid of the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that are inside your system which keeps them from growing or multiplying. Our germicidal lights decrease the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as little as 45 minutes. Even when your system is not currently running, a germicidal light will still be operating to keep your air clean and healthy. Duct Cleaning The normal home produces 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 more pleasant, and help you breathe easier. These are just a few of the products and services that are available to enhance your indoor air quality.
