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

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is cause for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we close up 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, Assured Appliance and Heating & Air has some ways you can keep your indoor air as clean 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 won’t happen if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are retaining your system’s effectiveness.

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 available that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Once the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. What’s even better is that 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 actively running.

Duct Cleaning

Majority of households generate a lot of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering bad things 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.
