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

Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes increasingly crucial as we board 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, Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc has a few ways you can keep your indoor air as fresh as possible.

Regularly Change Your Air Filters

Your air filter protects you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not frequently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s productivity.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to destroy pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the greatest UV intensity produced that kill the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. After the DNA is defeated, these contaminants can’t grow or increase. Additionally, 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 large amounts of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is accountable for filtering these 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 pleasing side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
