If you’re dealing with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have poor air. As we go 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 deal with allergies or asthma, bad indoor air quality could be our worst enemy. So what can we do to keep those allergens away?
Regularly Change Your Air Filters
The average air filter lasts a month or two, dependent on your lifestyle (some last longer). 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 added bonus to all the fresh air you’re breathing is that a clean filter also boosts your unit’s efficiency.
UV Germicidal Lights
Lennox has the highest 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 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 running, a germicidal light will still be operating to keep your air clean and healthy.
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 gotten clogged in your system. This can help remove any impurities that may be lodged, make your home smell better, and help you breathe easier.
These are just a couple of the options that are available to enhance your indoor air quality.
