If you’re putting up with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have bad air. As we transition 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 deal with allergies or asthma, poor indoor air quality may be our worst enemy. So what can we do to keep those allergens away?
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 pollutants and allergens. The better air filters eliminate pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not swapping out your filter regularly, 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 increases 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 eliminate 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 working to keep your air clean and healthy.
The regular home generates quite a bit of dirt and dust annually. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will get rid of dirt and debris that has added up in your system. This can help get rid of any impurities that might be lodged, make your home smell more pleasant, and help you breathe easier.
