How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Frequently, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we shift into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly important as we board our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the worst time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Air-Dynamics Inc has some ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible. Regularly Change Your Air Filters Your air filter shields you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They capture pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This can’t be the case if you’re not consistently replacing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, 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 terminate pollutants when they move through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity obtainable 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 reproduce. 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 Many households breed a lot of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering these things out of your air. Throughout 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 pleasant side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe better. We understand your home has unique needs and we have many options to help enhance your indoor air quality.
