How You Can Reduce the Effects of Allergies in Your Home This Fall08/15/2016 Regularly, poor indoor air quality is the reason for allergy and asthma attacks. As we transition into fall, indoor air quality becomes more crucial as we shut our homes and spend more time inside. This can be the toughest time of year for prey of allergies or asthma if our homes have poor indoor air quality. Luckily, Comfort Zone 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 won’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 retaining your system’s effectiveness. 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 highest UV intensity available 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. What’s even better is that germicidal lights have been found to minimize 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 produce a lot of dust and dirt every year, and your home comfort system is reliable for filtering bad things out of your air. Over 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 enjoyable side effects of making your home smell better and helping you breathe comfortably.
