If you’re putting up with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have poor 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 hanging out inside more often. For those of us that put up with allergies or asthma, bad 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 average air filter lasts a month or two, based 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 switching out your filter regularly, 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 has the best UV light intensity on the market. Germicidal lights are an effective, non-chemical means of destroying impurities within your home’s comfort system. These lights eliminate the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that are inside your system which keeps them from growing or multiplying. Our germicidal lights lower 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 working to keep your air clean and healthy.
The normal home produces 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 gotten clogged in your system. This can help remove any pollutants that may be lodged, make your home smell better, and help you breathe easier.
