If you’re putting up with bad allergies, there’s a chance that it’s because you have bad air. As we move from summer into fall indoor air quality becomes even more important. As the weather cools down, windows are shut and we start staying indoors more often. For those of us that deal with allergies or asthma, poor indoor air quality might 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, dependent on your lifestyle (some even 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 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 eliminating impurities within your home’s comfort system. These lights get rid of the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that are inside your system which keeps them from growing or multiplying. Our germicidal lights reduce 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 creates quite a bit of dirt and dust annually. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will rid your system of dirt and debris that has piled up in your system. This can help get rid of any impurities that might be lodged, make your home smell more pleasant, and help you breathe easier.
