How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Regularly, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Air Quality Solutions has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not be the case if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s effectiveness. UV Germicidal Lights Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to reduce the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they succeed to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t consecutively running. Duct Cleaning Majority of households produce a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air.
