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

Air Quality

Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we move into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Central Heating & Plumbing has several 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 capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not consistently 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 destroy pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity obtainable that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Additionally, germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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

Most households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering it 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
