How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Regularly, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes more vital as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This might be the hardest time of year for sufferers 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 healthy as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This will not occur if you’re not frequently changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s productivity. 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 greatest UV intensity available 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 increase. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease 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 reliable for filtering these things 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
