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

Air Quality

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 gets cooler, windows are shut and we start staying indoors more often. For those of us that put up with allergies or asthma, less than ideal indoor air quality may 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, based on your lifestyle (some even longer). Your air filter is the first line of defense against impurities and allergens. The better air filters remove pollen, bacteria, pet dander and mold from your air. If you’re not changing your filter on a regular schedule, 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 has the best UV light intensity on the market. Germicidal lights are an effective, non-chemical means of eliminating pollutants within your home’s comfort system. These lights destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that are inside 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 operating, a germicidal light will still be operating to keep your air clean and healthy.

Duct Cleaning

The average home creates 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 added up in your system. This can help get rid of any contaminants that may be lodged, make your home smell nicer, and help you breathe easier.
