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

Air Quality

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra vital as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the worst time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, House of Heating Incorporated has several 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 trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t happen if you’re not regularly exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s efficiency.

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 highest UV intensity available that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is gone, 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 succeed 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 every year, and your home comfort system is reliable 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
