How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for victims of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Local HVAC Repair & Service has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not be the case if you’re not consistently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s efficiency.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households produce a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering these things out of your air. Through time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them inspected will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
