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

If you’re suffering from 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 hanging out inside more often. For those of us that suffer from allergies or asthma, bad indoor air quality could be our worst enemy. So what can we do to keep those allergens out of our homes?

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

The regular air filter lasts a month or two, depending 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 changing 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 improves 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 get rid of the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that reside within 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 working to keep your air clean and healthy.

Duct Cleaning

The regular home generates quite a bit of dirt and dust throughout the year. Your home comfort system has to filter through that dust. A duct cleaning will get rid of dirt and debris that has gotten clogged in your system. This can help remove any contaminants that could be lodged, make your home smell more pleasant, and help you breathe easier.
