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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma attacks. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra 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, Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc has some ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh 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 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 retaining your system’s productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to terminate pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the highest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is gone, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. 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 constantly running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households breed large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering it out of your air. Over time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them serviced 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 easier.
