How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma attacks. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more important as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Cool Air 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 happen if you’re not consistently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are maintaining 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. Since the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. Additionally, 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 actively running. Duct Cleaning Most households produce a lot of dust and dirt every single 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 cleaned will remove dirt, debris and other pollutants, and unclog your system. You’ll find that that cleaning your air ducts will have the pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better.
