If you’re dealing with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have poor air. As we move from summer into fall indoor air quality becomes even more important. As the weather cools off, windows are shut and we start spending more time indoors. 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 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 impurities and allergens. The better air filters remove pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not changing 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 boosts 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 eliminate the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that reside within 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 working, a germicidal light will still be operating to keep your air clean and healthy.
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 remove any contaminants that could be lodged, make your home smell nicer, and help you breathe easier.
