How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more important as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling has some ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t happen if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s productivity. UV Germicidal Lights Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity obtainable that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to minimize the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they work to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t constantly running. Duct Cleaning Majority of households breed a great deal of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering it out of your air. Throughout time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them inspected will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
