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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Integrity AC & Heating LLC has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as clean as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t happen if you’re not frequently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, 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 destroy pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity available that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to reduce 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 consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Many households breed large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things out of your air. Through 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
