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

Oftentimes, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma attacks. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly vital as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the hardest time of year for sufferers of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, True Home Heating and Air Conditioning has several ways you can keep your indoor air as healthy 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 can’t happen if you’re not frequently exchanging 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 end pollutants when they circulate through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity available that destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or reproduce. Moreover, germicidal lights have been found to decrease the concentration of microorganisms by 50% in as few as 45 minutes and they continue to keep your air clean and healthy, even when your system isn’t consecutively running.

Duct Cleaning

Most households breed a great deal of dust and dirt every single year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering it out of your air. Through time, your air ducts can become quite dirty. Having them cleaned 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 comfortably.
