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

Air Quality

If you’re suffering from bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have less than ideal 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 hanging out inside more often. For those of us that put up 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 last longer). Your air filter is the first line of defense against impurities and allergens. The better air filters get rid of pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not swapping 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 has the best 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 destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that reside within 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 working, a germicidal light will still be running to keep your air clean and healthy.

Duct Cleaning

The regular 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 remove dirt and debris that has added up in your system. This can help remove any contaminants that could be lodged, make your home smell nicer, and help you breathe easier.

These are just some of the things that are available to improve your indoor air quality.
