If you’re putting up with 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 gets cooler, windows are shut and we start staying indoors more often. For those of us that put up 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 normal air filter lasts a month or two, depending on your lifestyle (some even more). Your air filter is the first line of defense against impurities and allergens. The better air filters get rid of 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 extra 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 contaminants 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 decrease 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 rid your system of dirt and debris that has added up in your system. This can help remove any impurities that may be lodged, make your home smell better, and help you breathe easier.
