If you’re putting up with 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 gets cooler, windows are shut and we start staying indoors more often. 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, based on your lifestyle (some even longer). 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 swapping out your filter on a regular basis, 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 best UV light intensity on the market. Germicidal lights are an effective, non-chemical means of eliminating contaminants within your home’s comfort system. These lights get rid of 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 running, a germicidal light will still be running to keep your air clean and healthy.
The normal home generates quite a bit of dirt and dust through the year. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will rid your system of dirt and debris that has added up in your system. This can help remove any contaminants that may be lodged, make your home smell better, and help you breathe easier.
