If you’re putting up with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have bad 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 hanging out inside more often. For those of us that deal with allergies or asthma, bad 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 even longer). Your air filter is the first line of defense against impurities and allergens. The better air filters eliminate pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not switching 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 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 getting rid of impurities within your home’s comfort system. These lights destroy 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 working, a germicidal light will still be operating to keep your air clean and healthy.
The normal 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 remove dirt and debris that has added up in your system. This can help get rid of any pollutants that might be lodged, make your home smell more pleasant, and help you breathe easier.
