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

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is responsible for allergy and asthma flare-ups. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly 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, ACS Heating and Air Conditioning 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 catch pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not be the case 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 productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that rid 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 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 actively running.

Duct Cleaning

Most households generate a great deal of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Over 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 better.
