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 spending more time indoors. For those of us that put up 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 regular air filter lasts a month or two, depending on your lifestyle (some even more). Your air filter is the first line of defense against pollutants and allergens. The better air filters eliminate pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not changing your filter on a regular basis, they aren’t able to do their job. An additional 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 getting rid of 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 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 running to keep your air clean and healthy.

Duct Cleaning

The normal home produces 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 do away with any pollutants that could be lodged, make your home smell more pleasant, and help you breathe easier.
