How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Frequently, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the toughest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy 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 won’t occur if you’re not regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s effectiveness. UV Germicidal Lights Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. 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 constantly running. Duct Cleaning Many households produce a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is responsible for filtering bad things out of your air. Over 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 comfortably.
