If you’re suffering from bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have poor air. As we go 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 suffer from allergies or asthma, poor indoor air quality could be our worst enemy. So what can we do to keep those allergens out of our homes?
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
The regular air filter lasts a month or two, dependent on your lifestyle (some even more). Your air filter is the first line of defense against contaminants and allergens. The better air filters eliminate pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not swapping out your filter on a regular basis, 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 improves your unit’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Lennox carries the top UV light intensity on the market. Germicidal lights are an effective, non-chemical means of getting rid of contaminants within your home’s comfort system. These lights get rid of the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that are in your system which keeps them from growing or multiplying. Our germicidal lights reduce 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 running to keep your air clean and healthy.
The regular home generates quite a bit of dirt and dust throughout the year. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will get rid of dirt and debris that has piled up in your system. This can help remove any contaminants that could be lodged, make your home smell better, and help you breathe easier.
