If you’re putting up with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have poor air. As we move from summer into fall indoor air quality becomes even more important. As the weather cools down, windows are shut and we start spending more time indoors. For those of us that deal with allergies or asthma, bad indoor air quality might be our worst enemy. So what can we do to keep those allergens out of our homes?
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 eliminate 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 improves your unit’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Lennox carries the top UV light intensity on the market. Germicidal lights are an effective, non-chemical means of destroying pollutants 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 reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as little as 45 minutes. Even when your system is not currently running, a germicidal light will still be running to keep your air clean and healthy.
The average home creates 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 added up in your system. This can help do away with any contaminants that could be lodged, make your home smell nicer, and help you breathe easier.
