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

Air Quality

If you’re dealing with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have less than ideal air. As we go 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 suffer from allergies or asthma, bad indoor air quality may be our worst enemy. So what can we do to keep those allergens away?

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

The normal air filter lasts a month or two, based on your lifestyle (some last longer). Your air filter is the first line of defense against contaminants 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 carries the highest 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 are in 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.

Duct Cleaning

The normal home produces quite a bit of dirt and dust throughout the year. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will remove dirt and debris that has piled up in your system. This can help remove any impurities that may be lodged, make your home smell more pleasant, and help you breathe easier.

These are just some of the options that are available to enhance your indoor air quality.
