If you’re suffering from bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have less than ideal air. As we move from summer into fall indoor air quality becomes even more important. As the weather gets cooler, windows are shut and we start staying indoors more often. For those of us that put up with allergies or asthma, less than ideal indoor air quality could 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 more). 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 swapping 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 increases your unit’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Lennox offers the top 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 reside within 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 operating, a germicidal light will still be operating to keep your air clean and healthy.
The average home generates quite a bit of dirt and dust annually. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will rid your system of dirt and debris that has piled up in your system. This can help remove any pollutants that may be lodged, make your home smell more pleasant, and help you breathe easier.
