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 outbursts. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes extra important as we close up our homes and spend more time inside. This often is the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc 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 regularly changing your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Plus, a clean air filter means you are maintaining your system’s efficiency.

UV Germicidal Lights

Germicidal lights give you an effective, non-chemical way to end pollutants when they spread through your home comfort system. Lennox® offers germicidal lights with the most UV intensity available that rid the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi that pass through your system. Since the DNA is destroyed, these contaminants can’t grow or multiply. 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

Most households produce large amounts of dust and dirt each year, and your home comfort system is reliable 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe easier.
