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 cools off, windows are shut and we start spending more time indoors. For those of us that put up with allergies or asthma, less than ideal 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 normal 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 changing 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 boosts your unit’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Lennox carries 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 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 operating, a germicidal light will still be working to keep your air clean and healthy.
The regular home produces quite a bit of dirt and dust through the year. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will get rid of dirt and debris that has gotten clogged in your system. This can help remove any impurities that may be lodged, make your home smell more pleasant, and help you breathe easier.
